Five-Alarm Chili

Apparently my mouth thinks it’s still winter. Isn’t it wonderful? So, have you ever had Five-Alarm Chili? Da-hudes. It’s HOT. But I like my face to rain, so I don’t mind. Thing is, Aaron keeps buying bags of corn chips. Like Fritos, ya know. The ones that you plunge into bean dip. He won’t stop. […]

Salsa Verde Chicken Soup

I know it’s hip to talk about the temperatures right now, but I just can’t do it. I just can’t. Especially because it’s going to be 96 freaking degrees this weekend and I want to punch it in the groin. But I’m not going to talk about it. I’m also not going to mention that […]

Roasted Vegetable and Pesto Minestrone

This soup looks like my neighborhood right now. Okay and get this. Normally I don’t gravitate towards certain fallish colors, likes the brown and yellow hues.

Dinosaur Kale, Tomato and White Bean Soup

Pantry Chicken and Beans

Okay, so I just finished reading this book. It’s fiction, but one of the main characters is a chef, so any time she references food, the recipe is supplied at the end of each chapter. Pretty pimp, eh? The book itself is gosh darned good, if you’re into giggling like a school girl, weeping like […]

Classic Beef and Bean Chili

Can I ask you a question? What does it mean when someone “winterizes” something? Is it just checking to make sure the chimney sweep doesn’t have eagles or hobos stuck in it again? Or is it a quick glance at the windows and doors for any slits where evil ice ghosts might slip through at […]

17 Bean and Barley Soup

I think it can happen to anyone. I wouldn’t call it a BAD thing. I just think it’s common and we shouldn’t read too much into it. Or judge. To my face. I bought a bag of dried mixed beans soup thingy from Trader Joe’s. Uh huh, the one with the instructions printed on the […]
