My boyfriend loves carrots.  He’s probably part rabbit with how excited he gets when I present him with just a  raw pealed carrot.  One time I was at the store and I impulsively bought a huge bag of carrots.  It was like 5 pounds.  I have no idea what I was thinking.  Even with how […]

Butternut Squash Cranberry Quinoa

The story behind this combination of flavors to create butternut squash cranberry quinoa shows just why I love being a food blogger. I love to read about food.  Going over a recipe and seeing all the variety of ingredients and studying how they combined them.  It’s exciting to see new ways people have combined food […]

Jalapeno Cornbread Muffins

 This week has been rough.  I got summoned for jury duty and then selected, I had a midterm exam for one of my classes, I got behind on blogging, and I had a few things happen in my personal life that added some stress.  Sometimes life is rough.  But on this Saturday morning, I’m feeling […]

French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup

I’m struggling with how to start this post. I just want to repeat “I love french onion soup” over and over, but you still probably won’t understand how much I love it. If I’m at a restaurant that serves french onion soup, I’ll either order it or be depressed until I can go back and order […]

Carrot Souffle

So for September, I challenged myself to make soufflé for The Scary Adventure.  This post is a little late…I was mad at this dish and here’s why.  First, I burned some butter.  Then I made half the soufflé (the part with the egg yolks) and I set it out to let it could cool.  I […]

Corn Dumpling Soup

I’m starting to be a little wary of spicy corn soups.  I absolutely love the, but sometimes they don’t come out quite right.  The last time I made a spicy corn soup, it turned pink. Not just slightly pink either, it was bright pepto-bismol pink with bright yellow corn in it.  My friend described it […]

Party Nachos

I love nachos, but I hate when they get soggy.  It’s like all the delicious toppings become too much for the chip and it ends up just being kinda gross.  I also never understood why people think that nachos make such great appetizers.  Sure, the chips can all be separated, but what about the big […]

Guacamole

One night, I was talking on the phone with my sister and I was describing the best guacamole I had made to date.  It was awesome and I was talking on the phone with my sister (who is super awesome).  My night was going well.  As I was describing to her how incredible it tasted, […]

If I could live in my PJ pants, I probably would.  Putting on “real” pants is always the worst part about getting up in the morning, and as soon as I get home from work I switch to my PJ pants.  On weekends, I’ll lounge around in them as long as I can.  I know […]

Step by Step Guide for Making Yeast Breads

August 13, 2013

Today I failed at making a crock pot soup.  They said it couldn’t be done!  Unfortunately, I’m here to tell you that something as easy as a crock pot soup recipe can go horribly wrong.  It started when I wanted my corn soup to be a little spicier and a little creamier.  The result was […]
