For my very first Secret Recipe Club assignment back in July 2011, I tried to roast chickpeas.   I love chickpeas and I love wasabi peas so I had high hopes.   They came out soggy and chewy, not crunchy and delicious.   (Needless to say I moved on to another recipe.)

For my last post, I presented a recipe for “French Peasant Bread” and mentioned how wonderful this bread was to accompany soup.   I teased you with an upcoming potato soup and decided to continue my peasant theme.

A number of years ago, I was a finalist in a Cooking Light cook-off.   This was back when I was OCD about entering recipe contests.    I have refocused that obsession to this blog now and I haven’t entered a contest in quite a while.   I think my last winner was in 2011.

Pumpkin-Tomato Soup with Beans and Chickpeas

Pumpkin-Tomato Soup from Eliot's Eats

I have tons of frozen pumpkin puree in the freezer.   You see, I love buying pumpkins for holiday decorations.   I get my money’s worth because I buy for Halloween, leave the pumpkins on the front steps for Thanksgiving, and then they finally meet their demise in a hot oven as they roast.   . . . → Read More: Pumpkin-Tomato Soup with Beans and Chickpeas

I adapted this recipe from A Table in Tuscany by Leslie Forbes.  I bought this cookbook on the bargain rack at a local bookstore MANY years ago.  I think I actually bought two and gave one to my best friend  as a gift.  (We both dream about traveling and/or living in Tuscany one day!)

As I was looking over my list of winning recipes, I was struck by a couple of things.

I used a lot of prepackaged and processed foods for these contests.   Basically because these prepackaged and processed food companies were sponsors.  

Here’s a list of a few winners that were sponsored by food companies.

I’m dreaming of a white chili.

2012-12-16 19.45.25

I’m dreaming of a white chili…..Just like the ones I used to know.

Every once in a while, our local paper will publish cherished recipes from long ago closed restaurants.    St. Michael’s Alley white chili must have been a much loved favorite because it is featured quite often.   I made this same recipe about five . . . → Read More: I’m dreaming of a white chili.
