Lately the weather has been a bit on the extreme side, don’t you think! While the Polar Vortex is chilling the Midwest and our Eastern shores, we here in the Southwest are enjoying mostly sunshine and 50 degree temperatures. My boys are both in KC and have said it can be brutal one day and feels almost balmy the next at 20 degrees or better. I remember those times when it was so cold. We would hunker down in front of the fireplace with a good book and a bowl of soup. This is my comfort soup, the soup for the soul or maybe the soup that just makes everything better! It’s rich and creamy with loads of flavor and a little kick of spice at the end. And to top it off, add a touch of bacon bits, grated cheddar and sliced green onion. Where ever you are, stay safe and stay warm!

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted any recipes. My camera was acting up and developed a lens error which prevented me from taking pictures. It took a few weeks to send it off and get it back in working order again. Then the holidays were upon us and I had my hands full with no time to blog. I’m just getting back in my groove and wanted to share one of my favorite pot pies with you. Pot Pie is a favorite of mine, however my hubby Joe doesn’t enjoy my enthusiasm for pot pie. So I compromised and made a pot pie with minimal dough, just a crusty puff pastry dough on top. And I added some spicy chicken and veggies that we both love, roasted corn, green chile and red onion. It had all the flavors of home and it couldn’t have tasted better. They were made in individual ramekins, just the perfect size to heat up for a quick lunch or have for dinner with a side salad.
