Spicy Pulled Pork and White Bean Soup

Posted on

I’m pretty regularly playing around in my kitchen and developing new recipes.  I’ve got a whole Evernote Notebook devoted to ideas–stuff to convert to gluten or dairy free or just “ooo, this might be good”.  Usually I have a bit of lead time such that I’ve got a few recipes in the hopper, as it […]

Perfect Potato Soup

Posted on

As soon as cool weather hits, I start thinking soup.  It’s easy, warm, and filling.  I didn’t actually make this batch for us, but for some neighbors who recently had a baby (welcome Carter!).  This makes a massive batch and is easily frozen, so it makes a GREAT food to take to others. Ingredients: 5 […]

Chili Con Carne

I rarely make my own chili from scratch.  This might be considered shameful by some foodies, but frankly, I really just love the Carroll Shelby mix from the grocery store.  But I decided that I just had to try making chili with BACON because bacon makes everything better.  This wound up being kind of a […]

Tex Mex Chicken Corn Chowder

Posted on

I’d never heard of using corn cobs to make stock before, but a coworker from corn country told me her grandmother did this religiously–even ears that you’d actually EATEN off of (it gets boiled! she said).  So I decided to try it for corn chowder.  The results were surprising.  And me being me, I had […]

Chicken Soup In A Flash

Chicken soup.  Classic comfort food.  It’s the thing I always want when I’m sick.  But here’s the thing.  When you’re the wife or the mom or the primary food preparer in the house…there’s nobody to make YOU chicken noodle soup.  And you know…Campbell’s just really doesn’t do it.  So here’s a quick and dirty recipe […]
