Quick Tomato Soup

Bowl of tomato soup with croutons

A quick and easy homemade classic that can be made entirely with ingredients from your pantry. Unlike its canned counterpart, it has way less sodium and no added sugars. I’ve finally jumped on the “What can I make entirely from my pantry during COVID-19 isolation?” bandwagon. I’ll still continue posting normal recipes, but you’ve probably

Grandma’s Goulash Pot Roast

Spaetzle with beef, carrots, and potatoes in a gravy-like sauce

I love my grandmother’s goulash recipe, which I’ve actually never posted. This pot roast is inspired by her goulash, as is this beef stew. I had a hard time naming this recipe. It’s definitely a pot roast, but has some goulash-like qualities in the way it’s finished. Goulash is more of a stew, but this

Le Creuset vs. Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven {Review}

I’ve always been a huge Le Creuset fan. My mom has a complete set of the Le Creuset cookware with the wooden handles. I grew up using these. Once I grew up and moved out on my own, I wanted a Le Creuset dutch oven so badly. I was ecstatic when my dad bought me

Red Wine Braised Short Rib Pot Pie

I was invited to a pie-themed party this weekend and wanted to make something unique. I was torn between a beef bourguignon pot pie and a short rib pot pie. I decided to go with the short rib pie because I knew I could do the short ribs well. I decided to incorporate some saffron

Mahi Mahi tacos

Prepare yourself for a lot or Mahi Mahi posts in the near future. My boyfriend went on a fishing trip last weekend, and caught a lot! So far, we’ve made it grilled, tempura fried, into cooked sushi rolls, and now tacos. These tacos were amazing. I’d pay good money for these in a restaurant. The

Fish & Shrimp Chowder

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.

Pulled Pork Burrito Bowls With Salsa Verde & Chipotle Sour Cream

Pulled Pork Burrito Bowl

I have a lot of home improvement projects going on at the moment, and my main goal last Sunday was getting my dog room finished. I knew I’d need most of the afternoon for that, so I wanted to make something easy that I could quickly assemble for dinner and lunches later on. I got

Sirloin Chili (Dutch Oven or Slow Cooker)

Sirloin chili

This chili was perfect for the snow day we had here a couple of weeks ago. I let it simmer on the stove for several hours, but it could also be done in a slow cooker. The beef was super tender, and the chili had a lot of flavor. I’ve included instructions for either method below.
