Top Ten things I have been cooking

   Crock Pot Chicken and Black Bean Taco Salad  with  Avocado Cilantro Buttermilk Dressing  - Delicious with homemade or store bought taco bowls. For homemade, I use tortilla shells and use tortilla taco bowl baker, which is like a waffle iron shaped like a bowl. My wife loves this dressing and uses it for veggie dips as well.

  Slow Cooker Moroccan Chickpea and Turkey Stew  - I like this with a drop of hummus in the center, and the key to this dish is the mint.

   Chicken Couscous Salad  - Simple and easy, especially when you have leftover cooked chicken and cherry tomatoes on hand. Our daughter likes this dish, especially when it has feta cheese on top.

  Spicy Thai Chicken Soup-  This is one that I go back to time after time. Also perfect for those family members who aren't feeling great. Great to make and tastes better as leftovers. Don't put all the veggies in one day unless you have a huge gathering that will eat it up on that day.  Use the fresh veggies (bell pepper, snap peas and basil) as you plan to eat on that day in proportion to the servings, so it maintains freshness. Use less chicken broth and more water as it can be very salty.

   Lentil Soup with Sausage and Greens  - This is good with andouille sausage. To cut the heat and add some creaminess, add yogurt to the soup when you serve it.
