Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

This Slow Cooker Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup is a delicious and easy vegetarian meal. It’s been too long since I made it, and I’m so glad I tried it again! I originally wrote about this recipe in 2010 – it was #337 of my […]

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This delicious Sour Cream Coffee Cake was one of my favorite recipes of 2010. It was #74 of my 365 recipe challenge that year. I made it a few more times while we still lived in Illinois, but I began to focus on trying other […]

Fennel-Crusted Pork Loin with Potatoes and Pears

I first made Fennel-Crusted Pork with Potatoes and Pears 7 years ago, as #362 of my 365 recipes that I made that year. Alex had gotten our friends to give me recipes for a birthday several years prior (best present ever!), and our friend Allison […]

Cranberry-Oat Scones

Cranberry-Oat Scones

I used to make brunch every weekend. More recently I haven’t been able to, as we’ve had races or other things to go and do. It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve baked breakfast on the weekend, even if all that’s really happened […]

13: Potato Torte with Cabbage and Bacon

13: Potato Torte with Cabbage and Bacon

This is probably my favorite thing to make with cabbage. I don’t love cabbage, but I’d make it again. (I suppose I do love bacon and potatoes.) It’s actually supposed to be Potato Torte with Cabbage, Bacon, and Cheddar, but since I don’t like cheese, […]
