On Instant Pot Baked Potato Soup

Have I mentioned lately that I’ve been on a soup kick? I don’t care that it’s warm outside, sometimes soup is just what is called for…and when it rains, well, that just INSTANTLY puts me in a super cozy mood. I know for sure that is a phrase that I have used in the past….

On Shishito Pepper Appetizer

Has anyone else noticed the crazy of shishito peppers lately? I have started to see the bagged shishito peppers in my store more often, but I didn’t quite understand what the craze was simply because I hadn’t tried them for myself yet. Lo and behold, I did finally try them, and I made them again…

On Gazpacho

I’m sure that I’ve mentioned Buffalo on here a few times before, but this recipe is a Buffalo ORIGINAL from The Park Country Club. Now, every summer, they would make this gazpacho and it was amazing! I mean, it was cool, fresh, tart, sweet, and when it was topped with their secret avocado cream, THE….

On Roasted Garlic Tomato Soup

Want to know what my absolute favorite kitchen utensil is right now? The KitchenAid Shredding attachment – it does course shreds, fine shreds, and slices. It makes grating cheese, carrots, and cucumbers a legitimate breeze, and I don’t know how I left it in the box for as long as I did!!!! In fact, it…

On Instant Pot Daal

Hi Everyone!  I hope you’re all staying warm and cozy as things continue to stay cold and frosty! This recipe is definitely one to warm you up right quick! It’s another dish I usually miss around this time, and being able to make it in the instant pot was just perfect for a quick turnaround…

On Instant Pot Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’ve definitely been on an Instant Pot binge lately, and another soup I tried to make once before when I was doing Whole30 with Frankie was a Stuffed Pepper Soup. Now, that I’ve recreated it on the stove, saving time by making the soup in the Instant Pot is a no brainer for lunch meal…

On Broccoli & White Cheddar Cheese Soup

Does anyone remember the white cheddar broccoli cheese soup at Cheesecake Factory? No? Maybe? I mean…I sure do, and that was one of my absolute FAVORITE soups, but come on, let’s be real. Who doesn’t like Broccoli Cheese Soup!?!? That’s what I thought! Well, again (I swear, my coworkers are on fire with this cooking…

On Lemon Rice & Chicken Soup (Avgolemono Soup)

There is a place in Evanston that my in-laws particularly enjoy going to called Cross-Rhodes, which is a great little hole in the wall Greek joint that has some AMAZING gyro’s, but my mother-in-law will always, and I do mean always, order a bowl of their Lemon Chicken Soup. And I gotta say, their soup…

On Split Pea Soup

Dear World, What in the good gracious is going on?!? Are you safe? Are you washing your hands? As of right now, I continue to travel to work (awaiting, what I believe, will be an inevitabel Work From Home situation in the coming week or so), but I am keeping my eye out for updates,…

On Chicken and Andouille Sausage Gumbo

Lent is underway, and this year, I have given up spirits and weekday (Monday to Thursday) drinking in general. This isn’t to say that drinking is a problem because it’s not, BUT I have just started to find myself not feeling very good after one beer/drink at dinner later that night or the next morning,…
