Hello, all! It's been a hot minute since my last post. There's good reason for that...or, actually, a bad reason for that: I had coronavirus. I've been bed-ridden for more than a week and only just now started to feel better. I'm one of the lucky ones, though. I had a relatively mild case and… Continue reading Italian Beef Stew
Anyone else noticing the meteoric rise of the sweet potato? What was once relegated to holiday meals only, has now become a cult favorite online. People are using sweet potatoes in ways never seen before. They are substituting their more starchy cousin for everything from potato salad to fries. Sweet potatoes have also been speaking… Continue reading Sweet Potato Chowder
One of my favorite things to eat for breakfast when I was a kid was Eggo waffles with peanut butter and syrup. I would slather the peanut butter on the golden, crispy waffles so it filled almost every hole. You'd get a mouthful or peanut butter in every bite that way. Drizzle a bunch of… Continue reading Portuguese Caldo Verde
It's 2020 but here I am still living in 2019. Since I spent months baking and posting holiday recipes, I'm backed up about a dozen of my normal, everyday meals. I've got salads, dinners, soups and snacks. All of the recipes are just waiting on me to post them so the world can see. Once… Continue reading Zesty Winter Pork Stew

After two decades of traversing all over the West and Southeast with my parents, I've used a bit of that nostalgia when it comes to doing road trips with my husband. I'll plot scenic detours and edible destinations along the way. I'll research the… Continue reading Sausage, White Bean & Spinach Soup
It's one of those days where I had to drag myself out of bed. I'm not feeling great, and snoozing my alarm four times didn't help matters much at all. I'm trying to get this coffee to perk me up now so I can go on about my day with a clear mind. Here's hoping… Continue reading Asian Chicken Noodle Soup
It's the rainy, lazy, napfest days of March. Weather like this makes me not want to do a darn thing. I guess I still need to get ready for work, though... This will probably end up being my last soup/stew/chili recipe of the season. I doubt we make it close to freezing again, and there's… Continue reading Cajun Chili
It's now been a year since Rob gifted me this laptop. I've probably posted 100 recipes since then. It's hard to believe that 2018 is coming to a close! I don't know about y'all, but my family always has a specific meal for New Year's Day. It's a tradition and it's supposed to bring you… Continue reading Shrimp and Greens Stew
Who need chicken noodle soup when you can make it better? And I mean MUCH better. Season chicken in Greek seasoning and cook this soup with orzo, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and kalamata olives. Soup has never tasted better!
"Cacciatore" means "hunter" in Italian. This Italian slow cooker version takes it to another level. Add all the veggies and olives you want!
