Broccoli Cheese Soup

Once upon a time, in the not-so-distant past, I made broccoli cheese soup. It was a disaster. I’m not sure what went wrong, but it was inedible. Usually, even if dishes don’t turn out that great, we still suffer through so we don’t waste food. But this… this abomination of broccoli cheese soup will probably go down in history as …

Sweet potato bean stew

Sweet Potato Bean Stew

My husband has had a sore throat and just generally been feeling icky for the past few days. I’ve been trying to stuff him (and myself) with tons of vitamins and fluids hoping that he quickly gets through this and that I don’t get sick. Normally, I would really dread my husband having a Man Cold, but he has been …

Spaghetti Squash with Mushrooms, Broccoli, and Parmesan

A food that has always intrigued me is spaghetti squash. How do you get noodles from a squash?! It’s almost mind boggling. I love to try recipes with spaghetti squash because pasta is one my favorite things and if I can replace something that’s not so healthy with something super healthy, awesome! This recipe is very earthy and hearty. It …

Vegetarian Crock Pot Fajitas

Every month my husband’s office assigns someone to bring bi-weekly lunches. Lunch is every other Monday during an office meeting. That person can make lunch, have lunch catered, assign a potluck or ask everyone to bring their own lunch. January just happened to be my husband’s month. It always fun (and a little nerve wracking) to provide a meal for around …

Lentil Sloppy Joes

Crock Pot Lentil Sloppy Joe

I’ve been a vegetarian for a few years now and one of the things that I really miss is Sloppy Joe. I know, I know… You’d think I would miss steak or bacon or something really meaty. And I did, at the beginning. But now that it has been so long, I only want those comfort foods that I adored …

Vegetarian Homemade Mexican Pizza

My husband and I used to love Taco Bell. In a very seriously gross way. Lots of memories from our early relationship involve Taco Bell. I’m pretty sure there was an entire summer that I ate it everyday… No joke. Then we grew up and realized how unhealthy fast food is for us, so we stopped eating it. But every …
