One of my most favorite soup recipes I’ve shared is my White Bean Soup with Garlic and Kale. I love that it’s SO fragrant on the stove, and it comes from a completely different flavor family than our other standby soups (minestrone, tomato basil and tortilla soup). A reader suggested that I try it withClick to Continue »
Guess what guys?! I finally got with the program and bought a new kitchen toy – an Instant Pot! That means you’ll see new Instant Pot recipes here on the blog going forward. In fact, I plan on doing an “Instant Pot Basics” series starting next year! But first, it’s fall and that means oneClick to Continue »
Sometimes the best recipes are born on accident. Mexi-lentil macaroni was created because I needed dinner and didn’t have much in the pantry. 90 minute man bread was born because we needed bread, we were short on time and my husband didn’t want to follow a recipe.

I love this time of year – the weather’s warming up, school’s almost out, and summer is just around the corner! And since I know that we’ll be retreating to the A/C as soon as July hits here in Texas, I try to take advantage of our beautiful May and June weather for picnics! JustClick to Continue »
