Last week I got strep AND the stomach flu within a few days of each other. I craved something hot, chicken-y, salty, and most importantly, simple. I was also not interested in digging out my huge camera for these shots, so I used my iPhone. Sorry about that, but hey, I was sick! If you […]
Here’s a super simple 2-3 ingredient recipe that will surprise you with some really amazing flavors. Usually pumpkin recipes are used for sweet treats, but I took a different direction and added caramelized onions for a classic, savory spin. Most folks don’t do soup in the warm months, but even though the flavors are savory, […]
I would say that I’m not a very competitive person. Bragging about how good you are at something and winning is the stuff of daydreams. But bragging and then losing is pretty humiliating to experience and watch others go through. With that said, at my 8-5 cube job, we had a chili cook-off and for […]
Ever ordered broccoli soup that doesn’t quite taste like broccoli? Like it’s been added with preservatives & frozen for a few months. Make it yourself. It’s so, so, so much better! First, I want to say that on a scale of super healthy (being 10) to super UNhealthy (being 0), I’d say this is maybe […]
Ugh, life is so much better when you’re not picky about food! Used to hate mushrooms, now I love them. If you love mushrooms, this soup is for YOU. I also found a great new method to soup-making! Stay tuned.
There are 100 ways to skin a cat, and there are 100 ways to make potato soup; and this is my way. If, like me, it’s the middle of summer in the South, you may be thinking soup sounds gross. Well don’t freak- you’re not bathing in it.
I think if we have food in Heaven, avocados will be there. As well as mangoes and bacon. I had a very random thought this morning: avocado soup. Avocados give amazing texture to anything you put it in, especially if you blend it till smooth, so I figured it’d be perfect for a healthy soup […]
A few weeks ago I made Thai sweet potato chicken soup. This recipe has a lot of the same ingredients, but a very different texture and flavor. Instead of using coconut milk and whipped sweet potatoes as a base, I used sweetened coconut and water as a base. This version is much lighter, and much faster […]
This one’s dedicated to all you guys who want to impress your ladies. Two ingredients. You can do this. Chop an onion in half. Lay the 1/2 onion on its’ side and slice it as thin as you can. Put the onions in a heated pan with at least a tablespoon of olive oil. Immediately […]
So it’s the end of the week and all I have left in my fridge is some leftover chili, an onion, a bell pepper and some spinach that isn’t quite fit for eating fresh. What to do? Soup! That’s what to do! What I love about soup is that it’s flippin’ fast, easy, and you […]
Ya’ know those dishes that have so many ingredients in it, you’re not sure which ones to highlight in the title? This is one of them! With sweet potatoes, carrots, chicken, onions, ginger, garlic, coconut milk and spices, this soup is sure to have you saying, “Hmmm…. this is one of the weirdest and best […]
I’ll be honest, there are few things out there that I think are better withOUT meat. For me, chilli is one of them. This recipe really doesn’t need meat in my humble opinion. However, if you choose to add some, try adding something more interesting than ground beef. Try kielbasa, chicken, or ground turkey. Watered […]
