Mexican Soup

Mexican Soup

I’ve been making some version of this Mexican Soup for almost 15 years now. It’s easy, inexpensive, healthy, and satisfying – and the perfect thing to make from leftovers, too! I call this “Mexican Soup,” but it’s rather inauthentic. It’s loosely based on tortilla soup,…

Slow Cooker Bean and Bacon Soup

Slow Cooker Bean and Bacon Soup

I’ve attempted many white bean soups in the past, but none so delicious as this Bean and Bacon Soup. I look forward to eating it and its leftovers, something I can say about none of the other bean soups I made in the past. It…

Stewed Chicken and Chickpeas

Stewed Chicken and Chickpeas

Since I don’t like eggs, cheese, or tofu, vegetarian food in my house typically involves beans in some form or fashion. I haven’t been very creative with them. I can only have lentil soup or chili or chickpeas and sweet potatoes so often, even though I love…

Easy Pancakes

Easy Pancakes

We make pancakes ridiculously often, and this recipe for super easy pancakes is the recipe we use on a regular basis. Alex and I both have it memorized. I love how simple it is – just whisk together the ingredients and cook. No whipping egg…

Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate

Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate

Last summer, I finally returned to iced coffee as my afternoon/lunch break treat. And for that, I love this Cold-Brew Iced Coffee Concentrate. It’s just so easy to make ahead, and then I can have coffee whenever I want! Some days I just need something…

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

Fudgy Bourbon Balls

I finally wised up and stopped making so many cookies and baked goods to ship to friends and family for the holidays. In 2015, I started making these fudgy bourbon balls as one of my food gifts. In every package I send, I give a…

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

My breakfast is boring, and has been for a while. I have a bowl of oatmeal every morning. Since having Amelia, I stick with old-fashioned oats over quick oats since they have the better texture. I love steel cut oats, but they take too long…

Sesame Noodles

Sesame Noodles

Honestly, I’m in a cooking rut. For every delicious dessert I write about (and I don’t even write about those frequently nowadays), there’s several evenings’ worth of dinner that I’m not interested in cooking. I can’t make a weekly dinner plan to save my life…

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

Slow Cooker Baked Beans

I’ve tried a few different recipes for baked beans in the past before coming across this recipe for Slow Cooker Baked Beans. The other recipes I tried were all disappointing – mainly, they had no flavor. Another gripe that I had – so many traditional recipes…

Smoky Cashew Dip

Smoky Cashew Dip

It’s been longer than I’d like to admit since I last posted a recipe here. I haven’t stopped cooking. It’s simply that I hadn’t made much until December that I had to write about, and we all know how busy December can be. To motivate…
