Soup isn’t something I typically eat in the summertime. To me, it’s a hot food meant to be eaten on cold days. I’m not even a fan of gazpachos and other cold soups because I don’t like their texture. But sometimes, a soup recipe catches my eye in spite of the high temperatures, especially if [...]

Thursday was a ridiculously long and crazy day. By the time I got home that night, I just wanted to laze on the couch with a book or my laptop. Cooking did not sound appealing at all. Then again, neither did pizza or Thai or any of our usual too lazy to cook standbys. Black [...]
Hummus is a refrigerator staple in my household. Besides being one of my favorite foods, it’s easy to make and stays good for a long time. Served with sliced veggies and pita wedges, it’s is a quick and healthy weekday lunch or light dinner. It’s great to have on hand this time of year, when [...]
Though my husband and I aren’t vegetarians, we eat meatless meals several times a week. We do this partially for health reasons, partially for cost reasons and partially because vegetables are so darn tasty. I’m also biased in favor of them because I think food should be attractive.

Sometimes, the best recipes are the simplest ones. This Twist is a great example. It combines crescent dough roll, vegetables and cheese to make an appetizer that is satisfying to eat and pleasing to look at.
One of my favorite quick and easy weeknight meals is taco salad. It uses foods that I almost always have on hand and only takes 30 minutes to prepare. Taco salad gets a bad rap since it is, admittedly, not the healthiest of salads. Personally, I believe that all foods should be enjoyed within reason. [...]
After dinner last night, Jared and I both had a huge craving for something sweet. We don’t keep many sweets around, but the baking cabinet is usually stocked with basic ingredients. I wanted to make something easy that involved chocolate. It also had to be eggless since we didn’t have any eggs. Recipezaar to the [...]
These chips are quick and easy to make. They go great with burgers and sandwiches, or on their own as a late night snack. They’re easy to customize with whatever seasonings and toppings you like. I personally like the salty, slightly spicy flavoring of Cajun seasoning.
