Simple, fresh flavors are the best way to dress up this colorful Greek oven roasted vegetables dish.
When it comes to vegetables, I appreciate simplicity. It’s not that more complex dishes aren’t fun, but for everyday, simple is best. When the weather gets cooler outside, I like to make oven roasted vegetables because it’s easy, and roasting lends itself well to most in-season winter veggies. It’s fun to change things up occasionally though, and that’s just what this Greek oven roasted vegetables recipe does. (more…)
The best red bean soup recipe I’ve ever tried, this Cuban red bean soup – potaje colorado – is a family favorite!
Of all the recipes I’ve learned from my in-laws, this is one of my favorites. It’s so easy to make, and there’s something so comforting about bean based soups. They’re creamy without dairy, loaded with flavor, and filling in a non-heavy way. Also, Cuban red bean soup is versatile! You can serve it as a soup one day, maybe with crusty bread, or over rice the next. This soup is made either on the stove top or using an electric pressure cooker, and I’ve included instructions below for both. (more…)

Darlings, these cupcakes are ridiculous good and became an instant favorite. Actually, I can’t even take credit for the idea.

I shared one of the extras with the Godfather and it was love at first bite! Y’all know I love caramel, and these caramel stuffed s’mores cupcakes will become a favorite of yours too. (more…)

This easy slow cooker chickpea curry is a perfect, economical vegetarian dinner recipe!
I am a lazy cook when it comes to feeding myself. Times when the Godfather travels for work, I eat a lot of eggs, oatmeal, salad, and slow cooker dishes. Things that are easy to prepare, and use a minimal number of dishes. Before little ones, I would often make a large slow cooker dish, like this slow cooker chickpea curry, at the beginning of his trip and eat that the rest of the trip. Now that I have people to cook for even when he’s gone, I don’t do this quite as often, but still make a few favorites for the family from time to time. (more…)
