Slow Cooker Vegetable Soup


I feel kind of silly writing about soup when the temperatures are going to be in the 80s for a few days this week. Just a few days ago, however, it felt like winter. And, if the last few months are any indication of the weather patterns we will have this spring, I’m guessing that there…

Slow Cooker Tortellini Soup


In the last week or two, I’ve been taking advantage of my slow cooker quite a bit. The cooler weather has been a welcome change.  Suddenly soups and other slow cooked meals are sounding much more appealing to me. It also helps that a little bit of effort in the morning (when I actually have some…

Friday Favorites – Gourmande in the Kitchen Edition (Episode 128)


Today I am thrilled to have Sylvie from Gourmande in the Kitchen here to host this week’s edition of the Friday Favorites! If you don’t know Sylvie already, you should definitely get to know her.  She’s got some really fabulous recipes on her site, and she also happens to be one of my favorite photographers….

Slow Cooker Ham and Bean Soup


I find that, because I have a food blog, everyone assumes that I’m always in the mood to cook.  They think that it’s all chef-y food, all the time. I wish that was the truth… But, unfortunately, I tend to go through kitchen mood swings. Lately, I’ve been craving some simplicity. When it has come…

Friday Favorites – Episode 118


Happy first Friday of 2012! I’m still adjusting to the fact that the holidays are over, and the new year has arrived already.  Where did the time go? While I’m still trying to figure out where the holidays went, I can say that I’ve had my fill of cookies and sweets.  I didn’t make any crazy resolutions about…

Cumin Scented Beet and Carrot Soup


I know I’ve mentioned it before, but I just love this time of year. I can’t get enough! One of the things I love most about the fall is the produce that is in season. When you think of fall produce, I’m sure that apples and pumpkins come to mind right away. And, I love…

Friday Favorites – Episode 107


Can you believe October is right around the corner? I’m not entirely sure where September went, but I am ready for October. It happens to be my favorite month of the year (and not just because I have a birthday in October)! All of my favorite foods are readily available (like apples and pumpkins), and it is…

White Bean Soup with Sausage and Kale


This time of year we start to get kale in our CSA boxes on a fairly regular basis. I know a lot of you have probably tried the ever-popular baked kale chips, and you may love them… But, I really can’t say that I’m a fan.  Sure, if you add a lot of oil and…

Friday Favorites – Episode 104


The word on the street is that a hurricane is headed for the East coast… Just a few days after an earthquake! It’s crazy out there! So, if you’re rained in this weekend, why not spend some time in the kitchen? Here are a few recipes to get you started… I cannot wait to make…



Last weekend, my husband and I watched the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.  How’s that for a Monday morning blog post intro? It’s relevant, though… I promise! You see, we have a few friends who have done the whole “juicing” diet thing. Some have had good results, others have ended up not feeling so…
