Easy Vegetable Soup Recipe

vegetable-soup-recipe

Lately I’m on a soup kick. I’ve never really been a soup person, though.

Is there such a thing as a Soup Person? A type of human more inclined than others to delight in the warmth of a flavorful bowl of broth? I don’t know! But if there is, in the past it wasn’t me. Unless I was sick or out to eat a diner (diners have the best soup, just FYI) then soup never really excited me.

Easy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

easy-oatmeal-cookies

I only say this like everyday, but I love easy recipes. The kind that involve only a handful of ingredients and take 30 minutes or less from start to finish. Unless it’s for a special occasion, I normally don’t have the patience (or the cooking expertise) to spend like nine hours in the kitchen whipping up some kind of gourmet concoction.

Now, there are all different types of easy recipes, but my favorite kinds are dessert recipes. Because let’s be honest, if there’s no dessert after dinner (or at any time of the day, actually), well that’s a major problem as far as I’m concerned. So since these cookies are both those things, obviously I had to share the recipe.

Turkey, Stuffing, & Sweet Potato Thanksgiving Leftovers Sandwich

Most people think the day after Thanksgiving is all about shopping and scoring the best deals. But here’s a little secret for you, most people are wrong. What it’s really about is eating more food. Particularly, leftovers.

Honestly, what could be better than enjoying all of the swoon-worthy dishes from the day before a second time? Certainly not battling mobs of Black Friday shoppers at the mall, I know that much is true. Personally, I’d rather be at home with my family watching bad TV and raiding the fridge for food from yesterday.

Homemade Apple Pie Recipe

At the dinner table, stuffing is the usually always the highlight of my Thanksgiving plate. And at the dessert table, well at the dessert table anyone who knows anything about baked goods knows that it’s all about the apple pie.

Last week I successfully accomplished the task of creating my own homemade stuffing recipe. That dish is relatively quick and easy to make, which is just my style and one reason why I now love it even more.

But apple pie, authentic, made-from-scratch crust, homemade apple pie… That takes a little bit more work. I always assumed that making a pie crust was something I never really wanted to try tackling simply because I don’t have much patience in the kitchen. I’d rather just wave a wand and have the pie magically appear before me, you know?

A Stuffing Story: Cranberry-Walnut Garlic Stuffing Recipe

This post is sponsored by the Grain Foods Foundation.

I love bread. I love everything about it and everything that you can make with it. Pizza, sandwiches, cookies, pretzels, bagels, cupcakes, pies, garlic knots; let’s just face it, all the best foods are grain-based. Well at least all of my favorite foods are.

Except, it seems like everybody is sort of hating on grains these days. In fact, one time I was challenged by a doctor to cut them out of my diet for a week, and I did. After that week, I swore that I felt more amazing than ever and I said that I wasn’t going to eat them as much anymore.

Confession: That lasted for about a day. It’s just not a dietary habit that works well for me because, as many of you know, I’m of the school that encourages eating what you want, when you want. And more often than not, I just want some damn bread. During that weeklong challenge I wrote about how I thought I felt less tired and groggy without grains, but looking back (and now that I’ve reintroduced them back into my diet) I think that was just a placebo effect. I’ve been eating plenty of grain-based foods regularly (and also running more too) and right now I feel pretty darn great. So personally, especially as a runner who needs plenty of complex carbs, I see no reason to exclude them from my diet.

Easy Pumpkin Muffin Recipe

Confession: I don’t even like pumpkin-flavored things that much. I like pumpkin, but I don’t love it. I think that it’s just OK.

Yet every Fall I get the urge to bake pumpkin-y things. I think it’s mostly just because pumpkins are everywhere this time of year. Especially at places like Trader Joe’s where, from October through November, almost every item they sell suddenly contains some form of pumpkin. Pumpkin butter, pumpkin pancake mix, pumpkin beer, pumpkin pie, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin tofu, pumpkin hummus, pumpkin pasta, pumpkin pizza, pumpkin pumpkin… everything is pumpkin!
