This is a really flavorful soup that comes together easily, especially since lentils don’t take nearly as long to cook as many other dried legumes. The inspiration came from the blog Delicious Obsessions, but I made quite a few alterations when I made it to give it more flavor, reduce the liquid and I found […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Very similar to the Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Larabars we also have on this blog, a main ingredient of this version is almonds instead of cashews like the Larabars. Any nut would work, as well as any add-ins you could think of. I’m thinking dried cherries and dark chocolate chips next time. Fast, […]Continue Reading... No Comments.

Two thumbs way up for these bad boys. My husband took one bite and declared they were the best Rice Krispie Treats he had ever eaten.

I really thought I’d cooked potatoes nearly every which way there is: smashed, mashed, baked, twice baked, fried, roasted, smoked, hashbrowned and leftover-mashed-potato-cakes. They are cheap and versatile and way more than an “empty starch”, especially if you go with Yukon gold, red, or purple potatoes over standard Russets. If you want to up the […]Continue Reading...
