Sometimes spring is obvious (like when temps go from 35 degrees to 55 degrees overnight and melt three feet of snow), and sometimes it isn’t quite so obvious (like when temps raise just a degree or two over the span of an entire month).
And then there are times when spring needs a little coaxing…like when it snows two feet in the span of two days at the end of March/beginning of April.

It’s January 3rd. And we all know what that means. (more…)

I love a beautiful pot roast as much as the next girl (who occasionally enjoys meat and always enjoys a home-cooked meal). There’s just something about pot roast that says comfort food on a cool fall evening.
Did you ever notice how pot roast leftovers tend to dry out? (more…)

Recently finding myself with a lone sweet potato in my fridge and hoping for some inspiration, I did a quick search on my site to see what sweet potato recipes I’ve shared with you.
Friends, I am hanging my head in shame. (more…)

Until I made this soup, I have never had Borscht in my life, which is strange because my dad has Russian roots…but what’s even stranger is that I had been craving this soup for a good month before I caved in and made it.
I’ve always been a fan of beets, even as a kid, so Borscht was a natural fit for me. I love how beets stain everything in this soup with their lovely deep red color. No matter what’s in your spoonful, it looks like beets. Of course the beets also stain your cutting board and your hands, but no matter, it doesn’t last long. Wear it like a badge of honor for making this glorious soup. (more…)

Thank you to Progresso® Artisan Soups for sponsoring this article. Follow the latest happenings at @ProgressoArtisan on Instagram.
Moving to Kuwait has shown me that words I thought I understood the meaning of actually have a much more relative definition.
Like “soon”. As in We’ll be over soon, we’re on our way now! Three hours and as many pots of Turkish coffee later, it’s apparent that “soon” has a different meaning here, lol. (And since you literally can drive from one end of Kuwait to the other in that amount of time, it also becomes apparent that unless they were either in Iraq, Saudi Arabia, or somewhere on the Persian Gulf, they in fact were not on their way.)

This soup is full of surprises.
For starters, if you’re not crazy about cauliflower (no worries, we can still be friends…I had a bad experience a while back and I went through a cauli-averse phase myself…so I get it), this soup might win you over. The broth is off-the-charts flavorful, and by association the cauliflower is pretty fantastic too.
Another surprise, if you’re a big meat eater, you might not miss meat even a little with this hearty soup. The herbed chickpea dumplings are not only rich in fiber and protein, but they kind-of look like meatballs so your eyes might start to play tricks on you. (more…)

When autumn rolls around, there are little things more comforting than a flavorful, hearty bowl of soup. This one is thick and rich, but also veggie-laden with olive oil-roasted cauliflower, onion, and garlic as the base. (more…)

So, let’s talk cheese.
Everyone likes cheese, right? Ok, I guess not everyone.
But in my whole life I’ve only come across three people who don’t like cheese. And each of them has a caveat as to when they will eat it. (more…)

Do you remember a while ago when I posted my recipe for Homemade Lamb or Beef Stock? It was way back at the end of last September when nights had just started getting chilly around here. I thought I had used the last of that beautiful stock in a stew last month, but I just found a quart of it tucked away in my freezer. (Yup, stock lasts that long in the freezer. A sure-fire way to tell if it’s still good is to let it thaw and then smell it before using – you will know if it smells “off”; as a general rule, it should last about 6 months in the freezer.)
