30 Recipes for the Holidays!

Well, Dining at my Desk Readers, I did it. This is the first year I’ve actually created a blog post for each day in December (though have tried valiantly since 2010), and overall, yes, I’m exhausted, thank you for asking. From the beginning to the end, we’ve had soups, side dishes, breakfasts, cookies, ice cream and even a mashed potato and fried chicken cake, but the recurring theme throughout all the recipes is they came from members of Chicagogrammers.

What is Chicagogrammers, you ask? It’s a group of Instagrammers based in Chicago, and it’s free and easy to join. I founded Chicagogrammers with my amazing blog wife, Chrissy, of The Hungary Buddha Eats the World, and this post wouldn’t be complete without a humongous THANK YOU shout out to her and her amazing organizational skills, follow-through and creative powers. She’s just the best. Next big thank you to all of our truly outstanding and inspiring members. While I highlighted the food bloggers here, it’s important to note we have a wide array of lifestyle, fashion, travel, parenting and beauty bloggers we count as members. We’re Chicago-based Instagrammers, bloggers and influencers, and I think 2017 is going to be a great year for us!

Ok, now down to business. I’m here to recap all 30 days of these insanely delicious recipes, so get ready for a feast for your eyes!!

Drunken Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

(1) Drunken Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream: Comes to us from none other than co-founder Chrissy of The Hungary Buddha Eats the World. Boozy ice cream ranks right up there on my personal scale of top foods I want to eat either separately or combined. Enjoy!

Gluten-free Cranberry Oat Bars

(2) Gluten Free Cranberry Oat Bars: These little dandies are from Marie at Lady Ace Kitchen. They’re for all of you people who can’t tolerate or just don’t like gluten, which I’m convinced is people who only like eating desserts.

sweet potatoes 1

(3) Maple Bacon Sweet Potatoes: Ok, technically if we’re counting this as a Chicagogrammer, that’d be me, because these were served to a group of bloggers at a Morton Salt event, which was QUITE tasty. These were seriously some of the best potatoes I’ve ever eaten.

rosemary-shortbread-christmas-tree-cookie-cutter

(4) Rosemary Shortbread Cookies: Oh, these sweet little savory cookies come to us from Ellie of the breathtakingly gorgeous blog, Hungry by Nature. Seriously, visit her blog RIGHT NOW. It’s worth soooo many drools. Hi, Ellie!

Lambrusco-Sangria-10

(5) Lambrusco Sangria: If you all haven’t heard of The Kittchen, pull yourselves out from under your rock and say hi to Kit, the wonderful blogger who also founded our lean, mean blogging machine The Windy City Blogger Collective. She’s in her kitchen all the time whipping up goodies and treats, and this sangria looks particularly delish if I must say so myself.

Perfect+Pancakes+(Gluten+Free,+Paleo)+-+Personally+Paleo

(6) Perfectly (Gluten Free, Paleo) Fluffy Pancakes: Another fabulous blogger, Katie of Personally Paleo, gives us the recipe for her super fluffy gluten-free, paleo pancakes. I’m personally not paleo, but her site is full of awesome recipes for those who are!

Fried-Chicken-Cornbread-Mashed-Potatoes-Layered-Cake-Recipe-1

(7) Fried Chicken, Cornbread, & Mashed Potatoes Layer Cake: Hmmm. As of most of my recipes of the day, I never got around to making this…cake, but I really, really want to. This crazy concoction comes to us from Caitlin of Public Lives, Secret Recipes. Another amazing blog to check out when you have a minute!!

SquashQuinoa

(8) Herb-Roasted Squash with Quinoa & Cranberries: Meet Anne of ASquared. Anne and I actually go back a ways in our (other) professional lives, so it’s always fun to give her a little shout and love, and she’s loving us right back with this delicious quinoa dish. Ok, after January 2, this is going on our dinner menu forever!

Cream Cheese Pineapple Pepper Dip

(9) Cream Cheese, Pineapple & Green Pepper Dip (Dorothy’s Dip): Oh, this one I ACTUALLY MADE, can you believe it?! It’s from a new friend, Alana the blogger behind the fabulous party blog, The Jolly Hostess. A combination of slightly strange ingredients comes together in this dip to, as Tim Gunn would say, make it work. This is the easiest dip, and is so good!!

Crab-Rangoon-Pull-Apart-Bread

(10) Crab Rangoon Pull Apart Bread: Oh, this was a HUGE hit on Instagram, and still not quite certain why we haven’t made it yet… It’s like, all my favorite things – carbs and cheese and faux crab. It’s from Alison of Rosie Discovers, another fantastic blogger who’s also a member of Chicagogrammers!

Little Lemon Snow Bites

(11) Little Lemon Snow Bites: Ok, here’s another recipe I actually had blogged about before. These little cookies are so refreshing – sweet and tart, and everybody loves a cookie with a filling. Plus candy is an actual ingredient, so that’s pretty exciting!

Smores-cereal-bar-ready-to-eat1

(12) Smores Cereal Bars: I love Smores, and these cereal bars look like no exception to the kinds of goodies I love most. Michelle from Honest & Truly, gives us another lip-smacker of a recipe. She’s got tons of other recipes on her blog, which are a good mix of naughty and nice for your new year’s resolutions!

Beef Ragu

(13) Beef Ragu: Hyam of My Midwest Kitchen brings us this complete winner of a recipe. Meat stew over polenta? Yes, we’re into that! This will also be going in our winter lineup for sure!

06-true-food-immunity-soup-fsl

(14) Immunity Soup: This recipe is part of quite a long blog post recapping some of the events we went to this fall. One of my favorites was the opening of True Food Kitchen in River North, and to celebrate, I included Dr. Andrew Weil’s cleansing soup recipe. Seriously, January, I’m looking at you.

Gingersnap-Icebox-Cake-with-Cranberry-Mascarpone-Whipped-Cream-3

(15) Gingersnap Icebox Cake with Cranberry Mascarpone Whipped Cream: Omg, whoa. By far the most beautiful cake EVER, this icebox cake is from Danielle, a registered dietician who blogs at The Every Kitchen. Obviously this is a health food. Definitely check out her blog when you get a  chance – the pictures are stunning!

peppermint brownies

(16) Peppermint Brownies: These luscious holiday treats are from the lovely Christine of Lattes, Life & Luggage. Her blog is filled with great recipes, book recommendations and travel musings, and she’s an awesome member of Chicagogrammers!

Spinach Herb Lasagna

(17) Spinach Herb Lasagna: One of my personal favorite blogs is Make it Like a Man, where Jeff shows us how to make stuff, you know, like a man. If Main Squeeze were to make this, it would be a man making a manly meal for a very dainty and refined lady. Hmmm, I wonder where he would find one of those.

Salted Caramel Eggnog

(18) Salted Caramel Eggnog: Yay!! This boozy treat is from Maris of the fabulous food blog In Good Taste. Maris is a wonderful person and her blog matches her personality – it’s just truly great. Be sure to take a look when you get a chance!

Funfetti-Cookies_Macarons-and-Lavender-12-768x512

(19) Funfetti Cookies: Basically there’s nothing I love more than cookies that mostly come from a boxed mix. Using prepared ingredients make things go a lot faster in the kitchen, and these look simply so good. They’re from Lephan, of the awesome blog Macarons & Lavender. She’s another fabulous Chicagogrammer I met this year!

Creamy Butternut Squash and Crab Bisque

(20) Creamy Butternut Squash and Crab Bisque: This is a unique one, because it comes from Kate of The Ginger List, an Instablog. So delicious and creamy, obviously crab is the perfect accompaniment to a butternut squash soup.

Carmelized-Onion-Dip

(21) Caramelized Onion Dip: Ooo, yum. Just looking at this dip makes me want to eat it ALL RIGHT NOW. It’s from Kathryn of Foodie Girl Chicago, just another fabulous blog from a fellow Chicagorammer.

Cranberry-Pear-Spinach-Rice-Pilaf-LONG-PIN

(22) Cranberry Pear Spinach Rice Pilaf: This looks SO fresh and delicious, and I can’t wait to make this in the new year! This rice medley is from Maggie of The Love Nerds, and I’m really hoping to meet her in the New Year!

Classic Basil Pesto

(23) Classic Basil Pesto: Really, it doesn’t get much better than a simple pesto sauce on pasta…or anything. Kelly of Chicago Supper Club gives us the perfected version of this classic sauce.

Pecan Meltaways

(24) Pecan Meltaways: Again, sometimes the simplest cookies are the ones we keep coming back to over and over. Joelen of What’s Cookin’ Chicago brings us the recipe for these simple, delicious treats.

Smore Brownies

(25) Smores Brownies: Ok, I might have a real thing for smores. Obviously they are a great love of my life. Bringing us this gorgeous brownie recipe is Kelsey of With a Little Grace.

Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese

(26) Apple Bacon Jam Grilled Cheese: If you haven’t had bacon jam yet, you might want to rethink your life choices, and then start slathering it on your grilled cheese. Thanks for the great idea, Annie! Annie is the inspiration behind this grilled cheese and the fantastic blog, The Brazen Gourmand.

Processed with VSCO with s3 preset

(27) Chocolate Blueberry Basil Smoothie: Oh January 1, you’re looming right around the corner, but Erin of Erin’s Inside Job reminds us that you don’t have to give us chocolate if you pair it with fruits and herbs!

Tiramisu

(28) Tiramisu: Ooo, yeah. Pretty much the best dessert you can get in an Italian restaurant, and just a delicious choice anytime, Mrinalini of Mrinhearts brings us this scrumptious looking pudding.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust

(29) Cauliflower Pizza Crust: Yes, January looms very large, and in the new year, we’re going to be eating a LOT more pizza on veggies crusts. Here to save our (considerably larger after the holidaze) butts is Jenn of Leasing Happiness.
meatballs

(30) Cheesy Skillet Meatballs in Arrabbiata Sauce: Yeah, these are a whole skillet of yums. Brought to us by Allison of Life’s a Beacham, these little round balls of love are gluten-free and full of cheese! My favorite!

Ok, there you have it! 30 recipes from 30 awesome Chicagogrammers! Hope you enjoyed the drools as much as I did. Here’s to a fantastic 2017 – enjoy this weekend with your friends and family, and I”ll see you back here in January!

If you thought I was going to bring you another recipe from a Chicagogrammer today, you were right!! Today we have Kate from The Gingerlist bringing us the most amazing-looking butternut squash soup. Oh, it’s got crab on it, because any time you put crab on something, it makes it even better. Ok, so Kate does things a little differently, and she’s an Instablogger, so she shares her recipes in her Instagram. You really have to check her feed out and give her a follow, because she makes the most gorgeous food!

Creamy Butternut Squash and Crab Bisque

Creamy Butternut Squash and Crab Bisque

To make: 

Chop 1 butternut squash, 1 large yellow onion, 2 celery stalks and 2 large carrots and sauté in a mixture of olive oil and butter in a large dutch oven. 

Meanwhile, roast a head of garlic. After 5-10 minutes, add 3-4 cups of chicken stock and simmer for 30+ minutes until the veggies become soft and tender. Add 4-6 cloves of the roasted garlic, one cup of cream, salt and pepper and purée until very smooth. Add additional salt and pepper to taste.

Plate by spooning soup into a bowl and topping with jalapeño oil (jalapeños puréed in olive oil, heated and strained) and a large spoonful of lump crab meat. Enjoy!!

Aloha, fellow blog readers! Thanks for following along, even though it’s been a minute since I’ve truly sat down to write a long post. Thanks to my number one (or possibly only) fan, my Mom, for always saying things like, “I sure wish you’d blog soon so I have something to read.” Point taken, yes, bloggers need to blog occasionally, and to my other loyal readers (still probably just Mom) – don’t worry, Mom has plenty of other available reading options, but I figure it IS time to let you know what I’ve been up to this fall, including three very memorable events: The Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce Dinner Crawl, Tony & Tina’s Wedding & the opening of True Food Kitchen.

The Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce Dinner Crawl

Let’s start with the Dinner Crawl, shall we? In September, the fabulous Wicker Park Bucktown Chamber of Commerce reached out to me to see if I had any interest in attending their Fall Dinner Crawl. Let’s just say I had a high to quite high level of interest, and before long, I’d secured two tickets for Main Squeeze and I to crawl along the Knife Route, which included the following restaurants:

The Pasta Bowl  |  Urbanbelly  |  Dove’s Luncheonette  |  Dimo’s Pizza  |  Feast Restaurant  |  Goddess & Grocer  |  Urban Icing  |  Coast Sushi Bar |
Red Door  |  Club Lucky

Excited didn’t even begin to cover how…excited…I was to be a part of this extravagant food tour of Bucktown/Wicker Park. While some of these are old favorites (Coast Sushi, anyone?!?!), a few were new to me, so that made the anticipation level even higher.

The gist of the crawl for any of the routes is that participating restaurants offer at least two small menu portions for crawlers to sample. Participating restaurants can also pair this with drink deals, but alcohol is not included in the price of the ticket. Please note the price of the ticket alone is WELL worth the money, as we got to try so many different restaurants and left totally stuffed. But, naturally, we also participated in the drink deals at most (all) of the restaurants.

First up on our tour was The Pasta Bowl. I’d been to their location on Clark, but had actually never made it to their Bucktown/WP shop, which opened about two years ago. I was slightly nervous about making The Pasta Bowl our first stop, because there was a long night of eating ahead of us, and I felt pasta would be A TRAP!!! so that I wouldn’t be able to eat as much as I wanted to, which was everything at every restaurant. We were greeted quickly, and served a lovely mini caprese salad, and YES!, a plate of pasta. The pasta was their signature dish, Farfalle Pollo, with grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic-buttered mushrooms, plum tomatoes, basil, parmesan, and their world famous house cream sauce.

The Pasta Bowl Chicago

The Pasta Bowl in Chicago

I vowed to eat only a few bites of it. I knew it was a trap.

…I ate all of it…and wished I could have had more. Damn, I’m the worst at dinner crawls.

Next up on our crawl was Dove’s Luncheonette. Have you been to Dove’s? It’s fantastic, but expect a wait during busy times, like brunch and weekends, as it’s pretty small inside. Despite being packed for the crawl, we managed to be seated immediately, and were served two delicious items. I wish I could tell you with 100% certainty what these items were, but it’s been awhile, and I’ve (of course) lost the evening’s menu.

Dove's Chicago

This was some type of zucchini/squash combo with a mole sauce. Yum!!

IMG_0370

….annnnnnnnd the torta with ham and cheese, pickled onion in a spicy sauce. Yes, I was beginning to feel stuffed.

IMG_0372

What to do when you’re feeling stuffed? Have a beer with your fried rice at Urban Belly, of course!! This was an exciting foamy treat!

IMG_0599

Continuing the drinking over at Feast, we tried the Mini Pimm’s Cup (how have I not had a Pimm’s cup before?!). It was outstanding!! We also had caprese skewers and salmon dip on rye baguettes.

IMG_0379

Then we went to Dimo’s and had the Mac n’ Cheese pizza. Cause calories be damned!

IMG_0375

And scarfed down some buffalo tots at Goddess & the Grocer…

IMG_0392

At this point we were supposed to go to Red Door and Urban Icing, but we were running out of time. We made the executive decision to unfortunately skip those two, and instead went to Coast where we were absolutely delighted to find that my FAVORITE SUSHI ROLL OF ALL TIME from Coast, my FAVORITE SUSHI RESTAURANT OF ALL TIME, was being featured. The White Dragon from Coast is easily one of my most craved foods ever!

IMG_0398 (2)

Last on our stop, but certainly not least, is neighborhood favorite Club Lucky. I could barely look at food at this point into the crawl, but Main Squeeze happily tucked into a giant plate of pasta, potatoes and chicken. Sigh.

IMG_0402 (1)

All in all, we had a ball on the dinner crawl, and we’ll DEFINITELY be doing it again next fall! Hope to see you there!

Tony & Tina’s Wedding

Next up on the list of must-see events is Tony & Tina’s Wedding. No, not just a random couple’s wedding we were invited to, Tony & Tina’s Wedding is an Off-Broadway completely interactive theater experience where the guests (audience members) participate in the wedding (play). We went on a Friday evening a few weeks ago and had a COMPLETE BLAST. We truly felt like we’d been to a wedding afterward!

IMG_0218

Here’s the scoop – Tony and Tina are two fictional Italian-American lovers from Queens, determined to be married in spite of more than a few crazy family members and friends. You, the audience, are invited to their big, dysFUNctional wedding, complete with church service and reception. The wedding service takes place at Resurrection Church in Lakeview, and the reception is at “Vinnie Black’s Coliseum,” just around the corner on Belmont. To be clear – Tony & Tina’s Wedding is a comedy in every sense of the word, and pokes fun at many Italian stereotypes. From Tina’s indomitable mother, to Tony’s spitfire “mother-in-law,” you run the gamut of big personalities. Tony & Tina’s wedding runs into February, and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Oh look, here I am, dancing with Tony!

Oh look, here I am, dancing with Tony!

True Food Kitchen

Next up – the opening of True Food Kitchen in River North. I was extremely lucky to have my parents along with me for their friends and family opening, and the extremely gracious and attentive staff made sure we tried a wide selection of their amazing, healthy menu. For those that aren’t familiar with True Food Kitchen, it’s a restaurant concept from Dr. Andrew Weil, as my Mom would say, the guy who helps make the shoes she wears (Vionics, for people with plantar fasciitis). He’s into clean, healthy eating and a proponent of the anti-inflammatory diet. True Food offers a wide variety of paleo friendly and gluten-free dishes, prepared with anti-inflammatory ingredients. Their slogan is “Honest food that tastes really good,” and yes, trust me, everything is SO fresh and amazing! Below is a brief sampling of what we had, and it is all OUTSTANDING. Mom and Dad loved it just as much as I did!

True Food Kitchen

Ok, so now on to a recipe for today. Let’s end with a clean-eating soup from Dr. Andrew Weil. Just tuck this one away for the new year, if, like me, you’re basically on the pro-inflammatory diet for the next 2 weeks…

It may come as a shock to you, but Americans don’t have the lock on Christmas. Apparently, it’s celebrated all over the world, and the good people of Greece get into the spirit by eating lemon chicken soup, which I have to say, sounds incredibly delicious. I actually made a crockpot full of chicken soup today to feed my poor sickie boyfriend, who is currently looking a bit like an Ewok on the couch, or at the very least, a heavily bearded Obi Wan Kenobi. He favors brown, and blankets are no exception. Poor kid. He needs fluids. Where’s a moisture farmer when you need one?

Anyhoo, this lemony soup recipe comes from JJ at the very cool blog Urbane Nomad. JJ’s a fellow Chicago blogger, and is borrowing other culture’s Christmas traditions this year. Avgolemono is traditionally made in Greece on Christmas Eve, making it not just another soup recipe, but a Christmas soup recipe!!

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Avgolemono – Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Boneless Chicken Thighs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 Small Onion
  • 3 Eggs
  • 3 Tablespoons of Dill
  • 3 Tablespoons of Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 1/2 Quarts of Chicken Broth
  • 1 Cup Water
  • 1 Cup Orzo

For the full recipe and instructions, swing on by Urbane Nomad, and say hello to JJ!

Smart Soup? You might as well just call this soup brilliant. At the beginning of the year, the wonderful people at Smart Soup reached out to me to see if I would be interested in trying their line of flash-frozen soups in conjunction with their (also brilliant) campaign to donate “Meal for Meal” to the Greater Chicago Food Depository. Until February 28, 2015, Smart Soup will donate the cost of a meal to the GCFD. Great soup for a great cause – of course I was excited to try it.

And just like that, a box of soup arrived to my office!

Smart Soup Variety Pack

Yay soup! Soup is great, but what I noticed right off the bat is how amazingly low in calories these soups are. For the consistently “on a lifestyle change” blogger, low-cal lunch options are my favorite. All of the varieties of Smart Soup are 160 calories or less, and are 3 grams of fat or under. The line of soups was created by Anne Chong Hill, who was inspired by her childhood in Brunei where she grew up eating flavorful ethnic dishes. As an adult, Chong Hill was diagnosed with hypertension and sought to change her lifestyle by creating healthy meals she and her family would enjoy. Each flavor of Smart Soup is inspired by Anne’s childhood and travels, and all of their products are vegan, gluten-free, all-natural with no preservatives and are American Heart Association Certified. Definitely smart.

The first flavor I tried was the Vietnamese Carrot Lemongrass.

Smart Soup Vietnamese Carrot Lemongrass

The soup has sharp, layered flavors with vegetables – potatoes, carrot, edamame, ginger and coconut. The flavors are fantastic, and unique – I wish I could cook like this at home for so few calories and fat. I paired this with a side salad, but the portion is generous enough to eat as a lunch alone. The pureed soup is thick and satisfying. Definitely zippy, zingy, and I didn’t need to use my trusty salt shaker.

The next flavor I tried was the French Lentil:

Smart Soup French LentilThe lentil had definite curry undertones, and didn’t have the zip of the carrot soup, but was still flavorful and also didn’t need the salt shaker.

The next flavor I had was the Greek Minestrone:

Smart Soup Greek Minestrone

Totally delicious, super low in calories (110!) and full of veggies and flavor.

Next up was the Santa Fe Corn Chowder:

Smart Soup Santa Fe Corn Chowder

This soup has so much flavor, and was my personal favorite. I love Mexican-inspired food, and I think this would be even better with a touch of cheese and a dollop of sour cream.

The last flavor I tried was the Thai Coconut Curry:

Smart Soup Thai Coconut Curry

Really bright flavors in this red curry soup made with coconut water. The bamboo shoots and water chestnuts give it great texture and crunch, and the bits of mini corn on the cob will remind you of the movie Big (or at least they always do for me).

I highly recommend this soup for anyone watching their weight. In fact, because these soups are all vegan, they fit in seamlessly with the Weight Watchers Simple Start plan! So eat up, Simple Starters, and calorie-counters alike!

Smart Soup is available in Chicagoland at Costco. Remember, for every unit purchased until the end of February, they’ll donate the cost of a a meal to the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
