Slow Cooker Chicken Stew

I realize it’s been eons since I’ve last posted a recipe.  Truth is life with three kids has turned my world topsy turvy.  Between chauffeuring kids to and from places, an almost 6 month old that requires her mother around the clock, buckets of laundry, keeping house, etc, blogging has taken a backseat.  But that doesn’t […]

Homemade Chicken Stock

I don’t throw a lot of food out.  It probably has much to do with how I was raised.  I feel terrible when I throw out a moldy piece of cheese (especially if I paid quite a bit for it) or produce that is looking less than prime.  This recipe is my best attempt to […]

Vegetable Soup

I’ve been on a mission to include one vegetarian meal into our weekly menu.  I’ve got black beans in the crock pot simmering away currently as I blog.  If I were a little more punctual, this recipe would have been a great Meatless Monday post but I can’t seem to get it all done in […]

Lentil Soup

Cauliflower Soup

Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Potato Soup with Shrimp

With Fall officially here, it has felt like soup sort of weather. We had this soup along with homemade wheat bread. I have made this soup without the shrimp and I substituted frozen corn instead.

A Cool Evening in August

The weather has turned a bit cool the last couple of days. A sad reminder that the dog summer days are dwindling and fall will soon be here if not already. We enjoyed this soup last night along with hot corn bread muffins served with butter and honey. Beef and Vegetable Soup 2 tablespoons olive […]
