Pulled Pork Tortilla Soup {Slow Cooker or Stovetop}

I’m trying to purge some of the things from my freezer, and I had some leftover pulled pork that needed to be used. My go-to for using random freezer meats is usually chili, so I thought about doing a white chili or some kind of chili verde (similar to the pulled pork burrito bowls, but

Slow Cooker Chicken Chili

We had a rainy, chilly day last weekend. I needed to go out and run some errands, but I also had a couple of house projects I needed to start. A friend asked me to bring tools over to help her hang some things in her house, so I did that too. I wanted something

Chicken Noodle Soup

I came down with a bad cold a few weeks ago, and thankfully it only lasted for a few days. My wonderful boyfriend made me tea with lemon, honey, and whiskey, which I swear is better than any cough syrup out there. Being sick of course also called for chicken noodle soup. This also reheated

Fish & Shrimp Chowder

I made this for dinner last night, and it was so good, but I pulled some out of the fridge today to take a photo and decided it’s even better the second day. I’m looking forward to having this again for lunch today and tomorrow. I used red drum as the fish in this recipe.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yesterday was a bit of a surprise snow day. It was supposed to snow a little bit, but not all day long. I took half the day off to work on some projects around the house, so I knew I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time making dinner at the end of the

Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato & Tortellini Soup

creamy tomato & tortellini soup

I tried to make a tortellini soup in the slow cooker a few years ago after seeing it on one of those Facebook videos. The recipe called for cream cheese, which never really did anything but become a chunky mess. It was definitely a fail. I’ve wanted to make my own version (that would actually

Turkey & Dumpling Soup

Thanksgiving leftovers! Last year, I made a turkey cranberry flatbread. In addition to the turkey and dumpling soup I made yesterday, I still might make one more thing for this year’s Thanksgiving leftover edition. This recipe is similar to my grandmother’s chicken & dumpling soup recipe. You wouldn’t really need to do anything except switch

Vegetarian Chili (with vegan option)

vegetarian chili

This recipe follows the basic method of what I usually use to make my chicken tortilla soup and meat chilis. For the first time ever, my chili came out perfectly seasoned without any adjusting needed at all. The recipe itself is vegan – only the toppings take away the vegan-ness and make it vegetarian.
