    Dumplings with my family
    A recent graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, I found myself with no money, no kitchen equipment, and an exceptionally huge appetite. Ideas, improvisations, and yummy meal solutions were discovered in the kitchen of my very first apartment.

Sweet Potato, Poblano, and Chicken Enchiladas

I found the Sweet Potato and Poblano Enchiladas over at Budget Bytes to sound absolutely delectable so I figured I’d give my own version a whirl. Matt and I love enchiladas, but I had never thought of incorporating sweet potatoes into them – it was a match made in heaven. Their natural sweetness balanced the hint of spice, and their creaminess made for a great contrasting texture in the filling. Proof that combining your cravings with what you have in the house can turn into a delicious dinner!

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

First of all, let me apologize for my recent lack of posting. On Saturday, I flew home to Kansas and have spent the last few days doing work (for an exciting upcoming blog project) and, of course, cooking away for the big day tomorrow. But one of the last things I made before I left New York was this tasty casserole which I made to replicate one of my favorite dishes at a Mexican restaurant: green onion chicken enchiladas.

I cook with green onions a lot, but they are usually chopped or minced pretty finely. This dish is has great flavor and texture that’s a little bit different than your typical “taco casserole”. Enchilada sauce ties it all together, but in an easy to assemble, layered casserole that’s easy to make and tasty to eat.
