Grab a crusty loaf of bread and make this quick Toasted Garlic Olive Oil Bread Dip. This easy restaurant inspired Italian appetizer is a perfect meal starter.
Many Italian restaurants serve bread as an appetizer either with butter or an olive oil dip. Normally, I prefer butter on my bread. But, I have to say, my all time favorite bread dipping oil comes from Johnny Carino’s Italian Restaurant. You want to know what makes their version so good? It’s the crispy fried garlic.
Copycat Chili’s Cajun Chicken Pasta is made by combining penne pasta and Cajun chicken in a rich and flavorful cream sauce and topped with fresh tomatoes!
Have you ever been to a restaurant and ordered something so delicious, you knew you had to create it at home? That is the way I feel about Chili’s Cajun Chicken Pasta. The first time I ever had it, I was addicted. I knew I would never be able to rest until I learned how to make it at home.
Due to an unfortunate event when I was about 13 years old, I avoided broccoli soup for a long time. My dad made broccoli cheddar soup for dinner, and I kept finding little black “things” in my soup. Rather than eat the soup, I kept moving it around in my bowl inspecting the black things until I found one that had long legs… Ugh!!! By the time I made my “discovery”, my brother and my dad had already devoured their bowls of soup. My dad had not properly washed the broccoli while preparing the soup, and there were lots of little black bugs living in the florets of the broccoli. My whole family was thoroughly disgusted, and we threw away the uneaten soup. So, the moral of the story when using fresh broccoli is to wash your broccoli well!
A few years ago, I got the “bug” to try broccoli soup again. I have so many favorite recipes for other vegetable soups including potato soup, carrot soup, and cauliflower soup, and I wanted to give broccoli soup one more chance.
