On Creamed Corn & Potato Chowder

Dear readers, I know it’s spring time, but I have ANOTHER SOUP!! I don’t know why, but I have been seriously soup obsessed, and given a lot of times I make a couple new things every week, we’re just on backlog now. This one was really easy to make, can be totally vegetarian (skip the…

On Broccoli Cheese Soup

Dear readers, ANOTHER SOUP!! I hope you’re as excited as I am because this one, this is a GEM of a recipe! Okay, so some background: So as some of you may (or may not) know, my family lives in Buffalo and as a result, we are big Bills fans! (Granted, we’re still a little…

On the Tucci Table (A Cookbook Review in Progress)

Dear readers, Over Christmas, I was very thoughtfully gifted The Tucci Table cookbook, and so I of course got right to work in making a handful of recipes this past week! The only recipe I did make and didn’t take a photo of was the Israeli Cous Cous with oven roasted cherry tomatoes and roasted garlic,…

On Potato and Roasted Leek Soup with Bacon

Dear readers, Merry Belated Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year! I have been taking a VERY much needed break from mostly all things “digital” because I have been spending the last week and a half in the beautiful mountains of Breckinridge, Colorado with my husband, in-laws, and Floyd! Where is Tuggs you ask?…

On Instant Pot Chicken & Dumplings

Dear readers, What a week!! Over the weekend, after a year off due to all things COVID (as you do when you value the health and safety of your friends, family, and self) we actually held our annual Christmas Party! It was so nice, and in truth, I really missed hosting it – we don’t…

On Roasted Corn & Tomato Soup

Dear readers, I’m on a super soup binge right now, which seems appropriate given the time of year we’re in (happy early Thanksgiving to my fellow Americanas)! I’ve adjusted this one a few times because the first time, I left the skin of my tomatoes on, and really didn’t like it. So I tried without…

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 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 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…
