(Leftover) Stuffed Pepper/Artichoke Soup

 Is anyone else experiencing a crazy winter?
I haven't seen a winter this bad for a very long time.
Since the weather is still freezing cold I thought I would share
a soup recipe that I created.
This soup is the BOMB!
Are you a stuffed pepper fan?
I know I am!
I was walking past the meat department at my local grocery store
when a display of stuffed peppers caught my attention.
How easy is that?
Take them home, 
place them in a baking dish,
create my own tomato sauce,
and bake.
Simple!
Simple!
Simple!
But I bought four of them for two people.
Which that means we had leftovers.
I consider myself the leftover KING.
I can take leftovers and turn them into something new
over
and
over
and
over
I had one leftover stuffed pepper from our dinner the evening prior.
What can a lonely stuffed pepper be turned into?
Soup, of course.
As I created this soup I wrote down all my ingredients and steps involved. 
This is what I did:

(Leftover) Stuffed Pepper/Artichoke Soup

2 1/2 qrt. water
4 TBS beef soup base
2 c. whole wheat spiral pasta
1 can diced Italian seasoned tomatoes
Bring broth and tomatoes to a boil, add pasta and boil according to pkg. directions for al dente.

Then Add:
1 can artichoke hearts (drained and chopped), chopped leftover stuffed pepper, 1 c. frozen corn, and a few drops of hot sauce of your choice. 
Simmer until heated through, approximately 18-20 minutes.
Place in soup bowls. 
Top with Parmesan or grated provolone.

Creamy Turkey Lasagna

 I haven't been here for a while,
and I'm sorry,
very sorry,
And I'm a little late with the turkey leftover recipe.
But I know you have picked turkey in your freezer.
Yes, you do.....
Because I do!
This is a perfect dish to serve using leftover turkey.
 Why haven't I been here for a while?
Because I have been working on my life. 
I have to have my life in order before I can bring you any
kind of goodness.
I have met a man named John.
John loves to cook.
John loves to travel for FOOD.
John is the perfect match for ME.
FOOD + ME + JOHN = HAPPINESS
John and I searched All Recipes to see what we could do
with our leftover Thanksgiving turkey.
This is what we found:
We took out the chicken and added turkey.
Genius, I say!!
We used 1 elephant garlic in place of the 4 cloves of garlic.
We also used a parm mixture (Parmesan, Asiago, and Romano mix). 
So click on the link above to gather this amazing recipe.
We loved it!!
And we had loads of fun making it TOGETHER.

Doubletree Hotel Copycat Chocolate Chip Cookies

 Everyone LOVES cookies, right?
And a cookie with the perfect amount of softness and crunch 
is usually a hit at any kind of function.
Whether it be treating associates (which I did),
family gatherings,
pot lucks,
or just making a batch to satisfy a craving.
This is the perfect cookie!
Thanks to The Little Kitchen I was able to create a cookie that
my associates loved.
Within minutes this cookie was demolished.
Since I followed this recipe exact there is no need for me to
type out the recipe.
You can find it at The Little Kitchen.
If you are looking for a GREAT chocolate chip cookie,
look no further.....
The blended oats in this recipe make this cookie irresistible.
And by the looks of my photos, can you tell I was in a hurry?
