Is there an online source for buying soup and marrow bones?

Caramelized Onion Dip

I suggest coconut oil instead of olive oil, which is appropriate for medium temperature cooking.

Ugh. If you want dip that tastes like Lipton's French Onion, buy Lipton's French Onion dip. No brainer! If you want a dip made from fresh ingredients (of your choice) and free of processed crap and lower on the sodium, try something new. It won't hurt you.

Thanks for the recipe!

Pesto, Chicken, and White Bean Soup

This is a very flavorful and quick soup recipe. The pesto/lemon flavors are really wonderful. For my taste, it calls for a little too much liquid and salt. I used 1/2 tsp salt and the soup was still great. I added 1/2 of the quart of low-sodium chicken broth and the two cups of water and still could have added less. I also think soup tastes better when it simmers for a while, allowing all the flavors to blend together, so I let it go for another 30 minutes. Enjoy!

Chicken Enchilada

Thank you for this recipe! These are some of the best enchiladas I've ever had...And I am from the border region in California. The fresh and zesty ingredients give this dish a fantastic flavor. Two suggestions. Consider adding the provolone to the inside of the enchiladas, so it doesn't brown. You just can't beat melted, gooey cheese, YUM!! Second, after following the recipe, I did not have enough sauce to also coat the bottom of the pan so be sure to add some cooking spray before adding your enchiladas. Happy eats!

Basic Chicken Fajitas

Delicious marinade just the way it is! I definitely suggest marinading over night, otherwise I found the flavor to be more subtle. Marinading smaller pieces of chicken yielded the best flavor results. Instead of cooking and removing the chicken, I added the vegetable mix (plus mushrooms) to the chicken. We do not have a grill pan so we simply sautéed everything. I can't imagine how great this would be with one. Happy eats!

Spiced Caramel Apple Upside-Down Cake

Since the recipe is intended to be kosher or non-dairy friendly, perhaps substitute with sunflower oil because who still uses margarine? The stuff is plastic. For another health-conscious suggestion, consider using almond flower instead of all-purpose.
