Back when we first met, my husband said he didn’t like soup. I believe his exact words were, “…it tastes like someone took a perfectly good meal, and then threw hot water on it”.

Riiiiight.

Not to be deterred, I went from only making things like like my grandpa’s beef stew and spicy, meaty, three bean chili to lighter soups on occasion. What can I say, I like [proving him wrong] encouraging him to enjoy new things. Continue Reading →

I love beet chips. They’re nice and sweet and crispy, and when baked, they’re pretty healthy, too. I remembered that I had a few beets buried in my fridge, and I thought that making chips would be the perfect way to use them up. Continue Reading →

I thought this dip looked like a good alternative to hummus. It was pretty good, but we thought it was a little too thick. Next time, I’d add more olive oil and maybe some other spices. Or I’ll just try another white bean dip recipe altogether. The lemon and parsley … Continue Reading →

We were at a birthday party a few weeks ago, and the birthday boy was working the grill. One of the dishes was something so easy and delicious that I just had to make it at home! His wife marinated sliced zucchini in Italian dressing and they grilled them a few hours later. They were so flavorful! So we bought a bottle on roasted garlic Italian dressing and poured it into a bag with sliced zucchini in the morning. Dino grilled them and they were scrumptious! Continue Reading →
