Belly Thrillers

Talking to a friend recently about must see movies and "thrillers," it occurred to me that's exactly what we need for the winter months - Belly Thrillers.  Belly thrillers are recipes and meals which 1. are hearty, 2. are healthy, and 3. thrill the belly!

Beef Pasta and Mushroom Soup
In honor of winter and January, I am pleased to introduce our first belly thriller: Beef Pasta and Mushroom Soup.  Soup, by its very nature, is a belly thriller.  Soup is warm and warms the body from the inside out.  Soup is comforting and can be hearty at will.  And soup is thrilling (at least to me) and filling!

Bow-tie Pasta with Chicken & Broccoli

Our second belly thriller is Bow-tie Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli.  Chicken and broccoli are healthy and hearty and get two thumbs up.  But the thrilling part of this recipe is definitely the Bow-tie pasta.  Change out your boring old noodles (whatever staple they may be) and exchange them for some BOW-tie!  (Not to be confused with Tiebow.)

Buffalo Chicken Tacos
Last, but never least, anything with the word Taco in the recipe title is automatically on the belly thrillers list.  What thrills me about these tacos is the buffalo chicken element of surprise.  I've done beef tacos, fish tacos, and chicken tacos...but it never occurred to me to spice things up with some buffalo-wow.  A must-taste belly thriller this season!

Enjoy!  Remember, we love feedback and photos and movie recommendations!
