Soyrizo Hash

This is hands down a great recipe!  Easy to make but it does take some time to cook the potatoes properly.  Good thing for me because I was also trying to make a few meals for the beginning of next week because I have stated a new job and so we can focus going to […]

Creamy Radish Green Soup

This soup came about due to the abundance of radish greens we had from our garden.  It is full of Vitamins A, Vitamins C and Calcium!  You get a lot of bang for your buck with this tasty green soup!  This soup comes together quickly and is perfect for a weeknight meal if your radish […]

Pasta Salad with Olives and Peas

This is a pasta salad that was inspired by one of my mom’s friends. I was reminded of it earlier this week so I asked her for the recipe.   It was kinda like “add a little of this and a little of that” and voila! So I did just that and made it vegan […]

Soy Chorizo and Sweet Potato, Black Bean Soup

I made this soup yesterday using ingredients I had on hand and it was tremendously good!  What made it even better was the fact that I threw it all in the crockpot and let it cook all afternoon long so when we were ready to eat, dinner was ready.  I wasn’t really hungry for dinner […]

White sauce 3 ways…

The other day for my cooking class I had to make Cashew Béchamel Sauce and then had to make Pasta Carbonara for my assignment using the Cashew Béchamel sauce. Let’s just say that there was a LOT of the sauce leftover and since then I have been consummed with trying to come up with different ideas to […]

BBQ Cauliflower

As you may remember the other night we made homemade BBQ sauce.  Tonight dinner was a really quick, throw stuff together from the fridge kind of night.  I can’t even say that it was even a leftover kind of night because it wasn’t.  It was seriously just down and dirty, quick and an extremely easy […]

Saturday fun day…

We started today off packing a picnic lunch for ourselves and we headed down to the Farmers Market on John’s Island and basically looked around and talked with some of the people who have booths there.  We did end up buying some BBQ’d Sea Salt and Fresh Corn that was picked just last night!  To […]
