I need your help...

What's for dinner?

First, I cannot begin to tell you how good dinner was on Wednesday. And the fact that I only had to ladle warming, spicy, filling goodness into bowls was an added treat. All I did that morning was chop an onion and two garlic cloves, cut up chicken breast (kitchen shears are perfect for the job), drain and rinse a couple of cans of beans, crack open a package of chicken broth and season everything (cumin, Kosher salt, white pepper, ground red pepper, chili powder). Definitely a winter favorite. Do you have a slow-cooked favorite? Send me (
nking@enquirer.com) the recipe, tell me why you love it and I'll publish the best on The Foodie Report. Have a photo of the dish? A photo of the dish AND yourself? I'll try to upload that, too! You could be the first-ever Foodie Report "What's For Dinner?" cook of the week. Oh, your friends will be sooo jealous of you...

I was
waylaid by a migraine last night, so we had (not-so-great) pizza delivered. Now I'm debating whether or not to cook tonight. Since it's Friday, I'm leaning toward not, but after a bad dinner last night, I'm really not up to eating someone else's food. I'll look on Food Network and report back later, after I've picked something. Any good ideas? E-mail me! I'm thinking something quick and easy. I have tilapia filets in the fridge...

I made the While Chicken Chili this past Friday. I ended up practically bed-ridden with a cold all weekend... and I couldn't have been more happy than to eat that soup every day. It's that good! Defintely a keeper!

Yesterday I found this recipe for roast beef that I was eager to try since I knew I'd be snowed in all evening. It was FANTASTIC! I also made smashed potatoes and caramelized onions to go with it. I meant to heat up the leftovers for lunch today, but the roast beef didn't make it any further than the cutting board! It was even better cold! Highly recommended. I'll have to make it again for a photoshoot. :o)

Hi, Lauren,

That roast beef recipe sounds awesome. The more garlic the better, I say! And the fact that you ate the roast beef cold is oh-so-very Nigella of you. I LOVE that! :-)

And, yes, be sure to pause between bites to take a pic next time...
