Okay fans, it’s April and I’m pretty sure we are all just a bit intimidated by summer swimsuit season being just around the corner. But just in case you’re still holding onto those ideals of a perfect bikini body– or at least an ounce of confidence when you are poolside sipping on an adult beverage and […]Continue Reading...

Spring is here! No really, I mean it. OK, so the northeast might still have snow and the south is already sweating, but hey– it’s April– and no one can deny that. We had friends over on Saturday night and all I wanted was an easy dinner of finger foods, fun, and friends. Let’s be […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Well fans, I told you I made variations to two of my recipes and I finally have a minute to share. The first variation was for crock pot asian meatballs and this was the side dish I made to go with it! I’ve been trying to do some Asian-inspired dinners that don’t involve me picking […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
Snow Day #7. I’ve been using my crock pot for breakfast, for lunch, and for dinner. Somehow the invasion of snow has worked up some serious appetites after playing outside.

Today’s recipe is so easy and simple, but creates a smooth mouth feel and just enough twist to raise an […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I had three reasons for creating crock pot hot and sour soup this week… 1. Chinese New Year was on Monday and I forgot to order takeout. 2. I’ve been trying to do at least one meatless meal each week. 3. Hot and sour soup is amazing for clearing up a stuffy nose and a winter […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’ve always been a fan of our grill… really, for two reasons. 1. In the summertime, it’s a great way to eat healthy and not heat up the kitchen and 2. when we grill, my husband is usually the one cooking! Since it’s been such a mild winter, we’ve been taking advantage of the unseasonably […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
I’m totally enjoying soups this week and I hope you are getting a chance to enjoy some of these recipes too. I love it when I can make an entire meal in ONE pot and feed the whole family. This soup is a variation on my crock pot potato soup recipe (search for it in […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
This recipe comes from my friend I.H.K. and she is an amazing cook. This soup is thick and chunky and a whole meal in one bowl. She recommends serving it with tortilla chips or corn bread. Using an immersion blender can really change a soup from drab to fab by altering the consistency to be […]Continue Reading... No Comments.
