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

Southwestern Tomato Soup

A friend has surgery recently and was really craving a flavorful soup, but it had to be entirely pureed (cheese in the photo was my test bowl – cheese is optional.) At first, I was going to try to make something similar to my chicken tortilla soup, but I didn’t have all of the ingredients.

Snow Day Chili-Stew

We had a blizzard last year, and I wanted to make something warm for us to eat while taking breaks from shoveling feet of snow. I’ll be making this again for sure during the next mega-snow! I call it a chili-stew because it has some elements of a chili and other elements of a stew.

Fried Pickles

I don’t make fried food at home often because my kitchen will smell like fried food for about 24 hours afterward. But I really love fried pickles, so sometimes I just have to make them. These are really good with ranch dressing or chipotle mayo. Be very careful when working with hot oil! Keep an
