Slow Cooker Beef Chili

Crock of chili topped with cheese and sour cream in front of a slice of cornbread.

This chili is the perfect fall or winter recipe and packs a huge flavor punch from chipotle peppers in adobo, mild green chiles, and seasonings. Bonus: it’s easy to make in the slow cooker!

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

Creamy Cheddar Grits

Growing up in Charleston, grits were a staple of my childhood. For over 20 years of my life, I don’t think I had bad grits. After college, I moved north. New York and Philadelphia had amazing food, of course, but it was almost impossible to find good Southern food or soul food. It was a

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

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

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.

Southwestern Tomato Soup

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.

Lobster Ravioli

Lobster Ravioli

Usually I’m the person who wants to get in and out of the grocery story as quickly as possible. I know what I want, I know where it is, and that’s that. Yesterday was one of those days when I felt like exploring everything, so naturally I ended up with a live lobster in my
