Lentil Soup with Lemon

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Although I’ve tried a lot of lentil soups, there’s only one that I’m a big fan of. I come back to this recipe time and time again. It’s healthy and delicious, and incredibly simple to make. It also happens to be vegetarian/vegan. It has simple […]

Carrot Soup with Sesame and Chickpeas

Carrot Soup with Sesame and Chickpeas

One of the soups that I’ve made a few times recently(ish) is the Carrot Soup with Tahini and Chickpeas from Smitten Kitchen. It’s a healthy and delicious soup, and is pretty quick and easy to make. The soup itself is lightly spiced. Do not skip […]

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

Cooking is much easier with a one-year old than it was with a baby. It got better when she was able to sit upright and play with toys or watch me from her high chair. Now that she can toddle into and out of the […]

Miso-Carrot Soup

Miso-Carrot Soup

I don’t make single-vegetable soups very often. I’ve eaten enough boring ones to be indifferent. I like a little more texture in my soup than you usually get from a pureed or cream soup. I like my soup to be hearty; I don’t want a […]

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Now that fall is decidedly here (and winter too, it nearly seems), I can’t put off the urge to bake and make other autumn recipes. I regrettably haven’t had much time to cook within the past couple of months. I decided to take a class […]

Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale

Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale

Within the past few weeks, I made Lentil Soup with Sausage and Kale. The soup sounded hearty and warming during our recent cold snap when winter told St. Louis that spring was farther away than we hoped. I only made a few changes to the […]

Poblano-Jalapeño Chili

Poblano-Jalapeño Chili

Cooking with peppers is fun. It feels so… exotic and dangerous. I didn’t grow up with particularly spicy food, so I didn’t buy chili peppers to cook with until the past several years. I like spicy food, but just a little bit of spice will […]

Baked Potato and Bacon Soup

Baked Potato and Bacon Soup

Winter has finally arrived in St. Louis. Yesterday we reached a balmy high of 56F, and Alex and I took our dog for a leisurely walk. Today, we’ve had a few inches of snow, and when I walked my dog, it was 17F and felt […]

Black Bean Soup

Black Bean Soup

My friend Theresa had a favorite recipe for black bean soup to share with me before I left my job last October. In an effort to eat healthily (and inexpensively – beans are cheap!), I decided I would go ahead and try it! Although the […]

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Lentil Soup with Lemon

[Edit: See the actual, updated recipe here.] I want to like lentils. They’re inexpensive, healthy, and quicker to cook than any beans around because you don’t have to soak them. I don’t use them often in part because I don’t know what to put them […]
