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

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.

Creamy Cheesy Broccoli Soup

Tonight’s dinner was a toss up between “fish” tacos and using the broccoli in the fridge up.  Since both of us were just hungry and didn’t care what we ate and the “fish” for the tacos was frozen and the broccoli was not, it was a no brainier.  Use the fresh ingredients first!  So with

Basil Pesto

I have been AWOL from the blog for a bit.  We had company and kept ourselves busy entertaining Jim’s parents while they were here.  We are kind of getting back to our normal routine.  So with that being said, tonight I wasn’t in the mood to cook anything for dinner and Jim and I weren’t
