I love soup when it starts getting chilly outside. So warm and comforting. I don’t generally cook with a goal in mind but Sunday night I wanted soup. I usually call up my mom and ask her to make some for me, mommy’s soup is always the best. But Sunday night at 10pm is not an appropriate […]

Fun fact: breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. My husband is the opposite and thinks of breakfast more as a requirement than as a delicious abundance of goodness and flavor! I MUST have breakfast as my first meal, even if I wake up exceptionally late. If I sleep until noon (not common, but […]

Fall is all around me right now, and nowhere more so that the internet! I swear, it’s pumpkin spice this, and fall decor that, and warm up with everything! I don’t know about you, but when I think of fall, I think of comfort food. Hot, filling, savory and delicious foods from my childhood. I […]

Eggplant. Aka Aubergine. That is one of those vegetables that often encourages raised eyebrows and wary looks. I, myself, and somewhat wary of this flowering plant. It’s kind of mushy. If you had asked me 2 years ago, “Easy Eggplant Recipes” would not have topped the list of 1000 blog posts I thought I would […]

Back to School – or BTS, as all the cool kids say these days – is an emotional time for just about everyone.
