Cook: Skillet Braised Mustard Chicken Rice Bowls

At the end of what I hope was a fruitful and relaxing Saturday, you may be getting ready for a night out and not at all thinking about what you’re going to eat on, say, Wednesday night after a long day.  Good for you.  Keep at it. Come back here, though, when you get there. … Continue reading

Cook: Super Green Juice

I’ve officially jumped head first into juicing.  I love it.  I bought this juicer and decided if I was going to juice, I wanted to jump right in and go for it.  Green juice: mostly vegetables, lots of leafy greens, the color of kermit.

Sweet Potato Soup with Crispy Bacon

Don’t be mad at me.  I’m writing about soup in July.  I know!

Cook: Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Soup week continues with quite possibly my favorite recipe of 2013.  This creamy butternut squash soup is a dream; it tastes just like Fall, it is super healthy, satisfying, and the flavor is out of this world.  I’ve made it three times since I took these pictures and every time I swoon at how incredibly … Continue reading

Cook: Spinach, Tomato, and Tortellini Soup

One of my favorite things about this time of year is that it’s appropriate to eat soup at least once a week. Soup is one of my favorite foods–it’s flavorful, it’s light, and it’s endlessly customizable.  I’ve been known to order a nice hot bowl of tomato soup in the middle of Texas in July, … Continue reading
