The name of this pizza is kind of a mouthful, but I just didn’t want to leave anything out. This week for #SundaySupper we are going skinny! That is right, we are bringing you TONS of recipes that are all good for you! Sunithi from Sue’s Nutrition Buzz is hosting this fun event.
Today #SundaySupper is celebrating its 1st birthday. I honestly had no idea it was that new. I joined this summer, and had seen it around for awhile at that point. So when Isabel announced this weeks event, I was shocked. I am so happy to be part of this wonderful and supportive group. Getting people back to having dinner around the dinner table is such an important thing, I am happy I can help spread the word each Sunday. So to celebrate today, we are looking back. Each of us have made a recipe from one of our fellow contributors, that was part of one of the past events. Kind of fun, huh?
I picked these dinner rolls from Carla at Chocolate Moosey. She made them for the Land O’ Lakes event this summer. Coincidentally that was my first event with the #SundaySupper group. I really had a hard time picking, there have been so many great recipes over the last year. But fresh bread won out in the end. I have a soft spot for fresh bread, I just can’t turn it down.
I made these rolls over the weekend, and they were so quick. They were ready in under an hour, and so soft and fluffy. The touch of honey leaves them with a hint of sweetness. I reheated them in the oven the next day and they were just as good. The whole family agreed that these will need to be made again and again in our house.
A light and fluffy dinner roll with a touch of honey
Honey Butter Dinner Rolls
From Chocolate Moosey
2 – 2½ cups flour
2 tbls sugar
2¼ tsp active yeast (1 package)
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp salt
¾ cup warm watner (120-130 degrees)
3 Tbls unsalted butter, melted and cooled
¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tsp honey
⅛ tsp garlic powder
⅛ tsp onion powder
In a large bowl, combine 1½ cups flour, sugar, yeast, garlic powder, onion powder and salt. Add water and 2 Tbls butter. Beat for about 3 minutes, until smooth. Using a spatula stir in cheese, and enough of the remaining flour (1/2-1 cup) to form a soft dough.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Knead for 4-6 minutes, until smooth. Add additional flour if the dough is sticky. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.
Spray a pie plate or other round pan with non stick spray. After the dough has rested, divide into 12 equal portions. Roll into balls, and place in the pan. Cover and let rise for about 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Once the rolls have risen, bake for 11-14 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
In a small bowl combine 1 Tbls butter, honey, garlic powder and onion powder. Heat for a few seconds, so it is thin. Remove rolls from the oven, and brush with the butter honey mixture. Let rolls cool until the glaze sets. Then serve.

Today is the first #SundaySupper event of 2013. We are starting off with a bang too! The theme today is recipes that are on our bucket list. You know, the list of things you always say you want to do….eventually. I don’t actually have a written down list, but I have some things in the back of my mind that I have always wanted to do. This is even inspiring me to make that list (on paper), and maybe share it with you later. Maybe they will actually get made then
So for this week I picked a chocolate meringue cake. I have Pavlova (which is a meringue) on my blog, but to be honest my husband made it. So I wanted to tackle it myself, and do it up with chocolate, because we all know that is how I do things. Plus my birthday was on Tuesday, so I wanted to turn it into a cake!
It did take 2 attempts for this to work out. The first time I followed a different recipe, which I am sure was a good one, but there was melted chocolate involved and it just didn’t work out. So then I started again, adapted the Pavlova recipe I know works, and went from there. I used an almond flavored, freshly whipped cream as the “frosting”. There is almond extract in with the meringue too, and it just pairs perfectly together. It is sweet, light, fluffy, and the perfect birthday cake! My 7 year old even asked me yesterday if I could make this again for his birthday.
This theme and post was planned well before all the events that unfolded on Friday. #SundaySupper’s mission is to bring families together each week. It is unbelievable what happened, and that these families can no longer be together.
Today, Connie from The Foodie Army Wife is hosting our #SundaySupper holiday party. We are sharing our favorite appetizer and drink recipes with you, just in time for your holiday get togethers.
I made this festive, and fun drink to share. When I was out with a friend recently, who ordered a Vodka and Cranberry with extra lime. This got me thinking about making a citus-y version at home. While at the store I saw Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, and I knew I had to use it. I love a drink that has lots of fizz, so this was perfect!
What goes best with cranberry? Orange! I learned that last year when I made Cranberry Bread. So I decided to add some fresh squeezed orange juice, vodka, and a little bit of lime to this. I garnished with fresh cranberries, and it was perfectly fruity, and tart, and slightly sweet. Great for sipping on, while mingling with friends.
Are you obsessed with celebrity chefs? Do you watch Food Network and The Cooking Channel in your spare time? Do you have tons of celebrity chef cookbooks? If you answered yes to any of those, you are in for a treat today! The #SundaySupper event this week hosted by Tammi from Momma’s Meals at is all about our favorite celebrity chefs.
I had a hard time picking my favorite, I like so many! But in the end I went with Rachael Ray. You either love her or hate her, and I am a fan When I first started watching the Food Network, she was who I watched. I am not sure that she got me interested in cooking, because I always liked cooking, but she definitely made it more important to me. I remember watching 30 minute meals in my college apartment, probably when I should have been studying. I really don’t have a favorite recipe by Rachael, so I decided to try a new one this week.
A local popcorn store here sells Cinnamon Popcorn. I tried it, and I could have sworn it tasted just like Red Hots candy. It was a little spicy for my 7 year old, but I love it. Then the next week my Everyday with Rachael Ray magazine came in the mail, and she had a recipe for Red Hot Popcorn. I was excited to get in the kitchen and try it. It is super easy to make, and tastes just like the popcorn store. It is such a festive color too, it would be perfect to put in gift baskets or give to neighbors for the holidays.
Thanksgiving is this week, are you ready? Are you ready for all the leftovers? Well this year the #SundaySupper team is here to help. We have about 50 recipes to help you use up those leftovers. And not just turkey sandwiches
I have had this recipe bookmarked forever! Originally it was made with chicken, but it works great for leftover turkey. It puts a whole new spin on your Thanksgiving dinner. The base of this pie is a box corn bread mix. You mix in a can of cream style corn. This would be another great opportunity to use up some leftovers. If you have any kind of corn left from your dinner, just mix that in. My family makes a creamy, cheesey corn dish for the holidays. I would use that in a heart beat instead of having to have a can of corn on hand.
This came together very quickly. In my head I thought it was going to be more work than it was. After about 10 minutes of work it was baking in the oven, and we were waiting for ooey, gooey, sauce, cheesey goodness. A little heat from the enchilada sauce, cornbread, and spiced turkey make for a great dinner. This was a hit in my house, and will be made again and again (with turkey or chicken.
It is getting to be that time of year. The time where we all need gift ideas for neighbors, teachers, caregivers, the mailman etc. It can be hard to come up with those little gifts each year. I am a firm believer that, if you put the time and effort into making something, it will be much more appreciated. So I would much rather bake someone cookies than buy them a gift card. Today Susan from The Wimpy Vegetarian is hosting the #SundaySupper “Holiday Gifts from the Kitchen” event.
We moved into our house over the summer. We live on a long cul-de-sac, and I have yet to meet all of our neighbors. I was thinking of baking mini loaves of bread this year, and delivering them around the block as a way of meeting everyone. The first time I saw this bread was at Love From The Oven, where she used applesauce and flax meal. Then I saw Budget Gourmet Mom had a version with Greek Yogurt, and I was sold.
This made 4 mini loaves, or 1 full sized loaf if you don’t feel like sharing. Pumpkin and Biscoff were pretty much made for each other. This isn’t the first time I have had the combination, and it won’t be the last. This bread is tender, and full of the great pumpkin flavor you love. I printed the recipe, and glued it to a colored piece of paper. I then used ribbons and a plastic gift bag to package it. All set for delivery! If you really liked your neighbors you could get ceramic mini loaf pans. I have seen them at Michael’s craft store for $1.99.
Soup weather is here. I am actually excited about this, because I have so many soup recipes I want to try this year. And after today, that list is going to grow. This week Susan from The Girl in the Little Kitchen is hosting a “Dishes That Keep You Warm” event. So don’t miss all the great soul warming dishes at the end of this post.
I haven’t made Chicken Tortilla Soup in forever. I made it years ago, loved it, and quickly proceeded to never make it again. Makes perfect sense, right? Ok, well maybe not, but I was determined to change that this year. So when this event came up, this was the first thing I thought of. It is a little spicy, super adaptable to what you like, and full of toppings (one of my favorite parts of soup).
I garnished mine with avocado, red onion, tortilla strips, cilantro and lime wedges. The lime adds a great freshness, and a little tartness to the soup. Sour cream would be great if you don’t like a lot of heat, to help cool it down. I am not a fan of black beans, so I left that part out, but feel free to add a can of black beans to the soups. Or bell peppers if that is what you like. Really, anything goes here! I have the leftovers in the freezer right now, can’t wait for a cool night to bring it out again.
Today for #SundaySupper we are getting together to #BakeForACure. I did a whole week of Breast Cancer Awareness around here last week, had some great friends help out, and even have a giveaway going on. This is the perfect way to end the week. I didn’t go pink, I just went with some of the best cookies I have had in awhile.
I have only added pudding to cookies one other time, not sure why it has taken me so long to do it again. They make for the softest and chewiest cookies around. My husband is a huge butterscotch fan, so I as soon as I saw these, I knew I had to make them. And, they did not disappoint! Butterscotch in the background, and then white chocolate, butterscotch, and semi-sweet chocolate chips. A party in your mouth!
Don’t wait to make these, they will be loved by all. It does make quite a bit though, so bring these your local hospital or cancer center. What a great way to say thank you to the medical professionals who selflessly give a part of them self every day to help others. Or you could reach out to someone who has struggled with cancer. A nice way to show what an inspiration they have been, or just to show you care.
This is the time of year for comfort food. As soon as the weather turns cooler, we all start craving those warm comfort foods. Today for #SundaySupper Isabel, of Family Foodie is hosting this great “Comfort Food with Lee Woodruff” event. This is sure to be a fun event. Not only do you walk away with 50+ comfort food recipes, but Lee Woodruff herself is joining us for the Twitter Chat this evening. Come join in the fun, and you will have a chance to win 1 of 5 signed copies of her new book, Those We Love Most.
I asked my husband for help with this weeks theme. He came up with a few ideas, but I thought his Jalapeno Mac n’ cheese was the best. I did add some bacon to make it even better. I seeded the jalapenos so it wouldn’t be too spicy, but if you want some serious heat; leave the seeds in. My husband loves things spicy, so I probably should have left more of the seeds in, but I needed to be able to eat it too
Now, I know mac n’ cheese is traditionally a very high calorie meal. This is by no means a light version, and could be lightened up more, I am sure. I did try to make it a little more healthy. I reduced the amount of butter from some other recipes I saw. I used skim milk, and in place of the cream I used half and half. Finally, I found a reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese by Cabot that I used. It was still creamy, and cheesy, and comforting, so I don’t think any calories were missed. Plus, if you use whole wheat pasta (or a brand made with veggies like I did), you are upping the fiber and protein.
