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 […]

Smoky Black Bean Soup

Smoky Black Bean Soup

Today I was tired after lunch and needed to have a Diet Dr Pepper this afternoon. This reminds me that I haven’t told you about the black bean soup that I made with coffee that helped keep me wide-eyed and alert in the afternoons. I […]

Coriander-Crusted Tuna with Black Bean Salsa

Coriander-Crusted Tuna with Black Bean Salsa

It’s just the beginning of March, but tonight I had a taste of summer. Last summer I made various salsas to go with chicken and fish. Sure, they were all kind of similar, but you can’t really go too wrong the combination of tomatoes, bell […]

171: Bourbon Baked Beans

171: Bourbon Baked Beans

For the 4th of July weekend, I decided to make American food to go with all the meat Alex bought. I had a Cooking Light recipe for Bourbon Baked Beans, which seemed like it would be a good accompaniment. I halved the recipe because I […]

One evening, three recipes (71, 72, 73)

One evening, three recipes (71, 72, 73)

I really wanted to make it to 31 recipes this month since there were 31 days. I took a look at my recipe count on Monday and decided I needed 3 more. From #42 to #73. After all, if you subtract 42 from 73, you […]

24: Fragrant Chicken Curry

24: Fragrant Chicken Curry

I love using my crockpot, particularly on Mondays when I get home a little late, and just don’t want to cook because it’s a Monday. It means I have to get up a little earlier to make sure I get food in there, but it […]

8: Black Bean Brownies

8: Black Bean Brownies

I love brownies, and I’ve wanted to try black bean brownies for a while. Ever since I printed out a recipe for it years ago, just to let it sit in a stack of other neglected recipes.  Knowing that I should make new (and exciting) […]
