7-Ingredient Tuscan White Bean Soup

Yes, I threw in the word “Tuscan”.  It has a way of making everything sound a bit more lovely, doesn’t it? Actually, I realized this month that it was exactly half a year ago that my sister and I were in Tuscany.  In some ways it feels like ages go.  Yet as...

French Onion Soup

Can you tell that I have been craving caramelized onions lately? After posting tutorials this past week for how to make caramelized onions the traditional way (on the stovetop) and my still-can’t-believe-it-works “modern” way (in the slow cooker), I thought it was only appropriate that I pull up an old recipe from...

Vegetable Beef Soup

I have developed a little tradition at the beginning of each winter of having my own personal soup-a-thon.  On a random Saturday once the weather turns cold, I make a mega grocery store run, then come home and pull out just about every pot and slow cooker I own, and make...

15 Feel-Better Soup Recipes

I’ve been a battling my annual cold this past week, which always seems to hit during the busiest, worst time of the year, smack dab in the middle of  Christmas shopping, baking and wrapping. Colds are so intrusive, so rude. Colds don’t care if you’ve got things to do and...

Potato Soup

Man, it’s amazing what a 5-day weekend will do for the world, isn’t it? Yesterday afternoon as I was enjoying the last few hours of Thanksgiving break at my neighborhood coffee shop, I looked around and couldn’t help but notice how visibly relaxed everyone was.  Even amidst the hustle and bustle...

Chicken and Stars Soup

Have you ever had that thing happen when you’ve been pushing 100mph to get through some big project, and once you reach the end, you finally get a chance to rest…and then totally get sick?!? Yep, right here. I’m actually on about day 7 of an annoying winter cold, which is...

7-Ingredient Easy Zuppa Toscana (Creamy Gnocchi Soup with Kale and Sausage)

One of my favorite things about meeting new friends is getting to visit their homes for the first time. Ok ok, I’ll admit, often I’m totally “that friend” who will figure out a way to casually invite myself over, because I love getting to see where someone lives.   I love...

Slow Cooker Chili + Crock-Pot GIVEAWAY!

I’m now calling this “victory chili”, because when I made it a few days ago for the Royals’ big wild card game, they freaking won and earned their way to the play-offs for the first time in 29 years!!! Oh my goodness.  People reading this post years from now will probably have...

15 Slow Cooker Dinner Recipes

It’s that time of year again.  The time when we sadly bid all those lovely summer tomatoes adieu, and turn on the slow cooker.  As summer fades into fall and the nights grow cooler, there isn’t much more comforting than coming home after a long day’s work to a...

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Can I tell you one thing that makes me unreasonably happy on a day-to-day basis? Strangers smiling at me. Even better? Strangers waving, or nodding, or offering a pleasant hello, or even (my favorite) the ol’ one-finger-raise-on-the-steering wheel. For whatever reason, I always notice those little things and they...

Italian Orzo Spinach Soup

This past Sunday, I woke up on the wrong side of the bed.  The Let’s-Be-Unusually-Hard-On-Yourself-About-Everything-Today side of the bed. First of all, I woke up to the sound of my oven timer beeping loudly at me at 6:30am because Forgetful Here accidentally left my phone (a.k.a. the only “alarm...
