Laure’s Crab & Corn Chowder

Vacationing with my cousin Laure usually means you’re in for some amazing food. Last week we stayed with her and her husband, Tim, in a cabin in Grand Teton National Park. Our first dinner at the cabin was this delicious and easy chowder, which smelled so good that a red fox peeked in the sliding glass door to see what was cooking.

Pork Ramen

This is described as the “everyman’s ramen.” The broth of apples, garlic, ginger, onions, and pork comes together in a few hours. Maruchan ramen, found in every grocery store, is fine, but quality noodles make a big difference.

Sweet & Spicy Ground Turkey & Sweet Potato Stew

Ground turkey and sweet potatoes make an adaptable canvas for different flavors. You can easily adjust this recipe to be less spicy, to accommodate kids (but serve it with more chile garlic sauce on the side for heat-loving adults), or to be less sweet.

Roasted Chicken & Butternut Squash Soup

This is one of my favorite recipes. Arrange cubed onion and butternut squash on a baking sheet, and top with chicken thighs. Roast everything together, then blend the vegetables into the soup and add the chopped chicken meat.

The chicken juices and butternut add a delicious richness to the soup. I always double this recipe so that it makes dinner for several nights.
