Vegetable Barley Soup

This is the season for soups, right? I am not a fan of cold weather, so I will go anything to get my body warmed up, soup being one of the favorites. I love to do veggie soups, but I have to add grains to make them more substantial. This vegetable barley soup is a…

Spicy (or not) Black Bean Burgers

I have tried making black bean burgers several times, all the times previous have been utter failures. They were mushy and the flavor was just off. I don’t particularly care for any of the store bought burgers either. I had to remedy this situation with a little testing and I finally came up…

We love this simple taco soup. It and it variations are a staple here. I used ground beef in this one, but have also used ground turkey, ground chicken, made veggies versions with just the black beans and lentils. Anyway you choose to make it, this soup is awesome!

Acorn Squash Rings with Cornbread Stuffing

I posted a recipe for stuffed squash several weeks ago. This is a variation I like even better. These acorn rings have a much higher ratio of cornbread stuffing to squash. I am a carb lover, so you know I will like this variation better. This is a great recipe. There are so many variables…

Herb Chicken- Pressure Cooker

Here we go with another super simple, pressure cooker recipe. I love these! If you don’t own a pressure cooker, you really might want to consider investing in one. It is such a great appliance to have. So, start with your bone in chicken breasts, you can use boneless if you prefer, but…

Fettuccine Alfredo- Cooking with Kids
