Crock Pot French Onion Soup – Irish Style!

Crock Pot French Onion Soup - Irish Style!
Hello out there! Where did March go already? I’ve been busy being obsessed with my summer trip to Ireland with M! It’s a little ridiculous – we’ve got 3 books and I’ve gone a little nuts on planning. It’s the best part of travel, IMO. We’ve also made our way through all of Rick Steve’s ...

Hello out there! Happy February! I’m on track for my one new recipe per month goal of 2015 — woo hoo! This new recipe I have for you today is one of my new favorites. Although M and I no longer eat meat, we are both Midwesterners who have traditionally enjoyed a good meatloaf. I ...

Crock Pot Black Bean & Pumpkin Chili
Hello out there! Happy 2015 to you all! One of my goals for the year is to do at least 1 post per month. This may not sound like much, but I didn’t even do that well last year. Oops. I’m pretty confident 2015 will be a less hectic year for me, so expect more ...

Hello out there! Happy fall! The fall colors have peaked in La Crosse and it’s been super fun admiring the trees around town. It’s also been wonderful cooking with fall vegetables.

Hello out there! Sorry for the delay in posting – it’s been quite a summer. I left Seattle shortly after the 4th of July and have moved in with M in La Crosse. I took a new job at Kaplan Professional Education a couple miles from where we live. Lots of exciting but overwhelming changes! ...

Hello out there! It’s been a while since I’ve posted, I know. The reason for that is that I have been creating some serious Pinterest Fail-worthy food lately. I think it’s unfair to only share my successes, so I am sharing some of my embarrassing kitchen train wrecks of the last month. You can’t learn ...

Hello out there! Now that I’ve emerged from my House of Cards Season 2 binge, I’ve got another really good recipe for you this evening. I adapted this one from a Betty Crocker recipe for a dutch oven. I wasn’t sure how it’d go, but it turned out really well! What appealed to me most ...

Crock Pot Vegetarian Pesto & Walnut “Meatballs”

Crock Pot Vegetarian Pesto & Walnut
Ok, I know what you are thinking – vegetarian meatballs? Hear me out – these turned out AWESOME. I’ve officially been vegetarian for one month now and I’m going strong. I thought I was going to eat some meat occasionally, but I really don’t have any interest. It probably isn’t helping that I’m in the ...

Crock Pot Falafel & Yogurt Garlic Sauce
Hello again! Second post in one week – look at me go! The Seahawks won again, which means I’ll be hibernating until after the Super Bowl. Ugh. Between Chris Kluwe’s experiences with bigotry and all this other general ridiculousness, I’m not feeling the NFL. The hyper-masculinity of the sport has always kind of been a ...

Hello out there! Happy New Year! As promised, M and I have been planning all kinds of fun vegetarian slow cooker recipes that we’re excited to share with you! Last week, I tried another one of America’s Test Kitchen recipes. I have to say I’m not overly impressed with a lot of what it’s in ...
