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…)

Sometimes, life just falls into place in a funny way at the grocery store. One minute, you’re casually perusing the pasta aisle, and the next, you’re sprinting to the produce section to load up on fresh tomatoes because you *have* to make soup immediately. What happened, you ask? I spied a bag of alphabet pasta! How could I not get excited about alphabet pasta? Even though I actually wasn’t a fan of the canned alphabet soup as a kid, I do love fun pasta shapes, and we all know a homemade alphabet soup is going to be amazing. (more…)

Creamy Asparagus Garlic Soup {dairy free, vegan, clean eating} - Make this easy soup in your blender or on the stove top! Either way it's a perfect way to enjoy asparagus. *

Even as a kid I thought asparagus was one super cool vegetable. I think it was the shape, and the I liked the flavor. I also liked pretending the asparagus spears were sword and play fighting at the kitchen table with my sisters. Sorry about that mom. When my mother bought fresh asparagus, it was always roasted. From time to time though, she’d buy the canned cream of asparagus soup, and I liked that too. Of course, now that I’m grown, and we’ve all learned about better eating habits, my mother no longer buys the canned soup, and neither do I. I still love asparagus soup though, but I make it from scratch. My creamy asparagus garlic soup is delicious, but it doesn’t have dairy, and has a good bit of protein and healthy fats thanks to my secret ingredient! What to know what it is? (more…)

I keep my potatoes and onions in a teacup shaped wire basket on the counter. The garlic sits in the saucer section. It’s rather cute, until we have moments when I don’t realize I have three white potatoes sitting under a small mountain of onions and I buy three more potatoes, and then I don’t know what to do with the original three. Maybe it was more than three, I’m not really sure. I just know that I ended up with a lot of potatoes, which probably wouldn’t be a problem for most people, but it was very concerning for me at the time, I’m not sure why. (more…)

The Godfather and I love taking our little family circus on road trips. I don’t know if it’s because we know we have “work mandated” road trips when we relocate for his job every few years, or if it’s just a love of the adventure and the time spent together, but it’s something we always enjoy. Last year, when we traveled to Florida to visit our families, we decided to forego the airports and take a road trip instead, driving two days with a stop in Savannah mid-way. Who gives up an opportunity to visit Savannah? That’s crazy talk.  (more…)
