When it comes to chili, you eventually reach a point where you feel like every “new” recipe is just a reiteration of one you tried three months ago. I know I’ve reached that point, so I decided to try something different: No tomato. The main reason this recipe ended up in my pot is that

First and foremost: Sorry about the hiatus. I’ve been battling some mental health struggles and working myself to the bone trying to finish my backyard landscaping in time to get my onions, beans, peas, etc. in the ground in time. I’m still here! I just miscalculated how much of a backlog of posts I had

Cooking healthy doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. 2020 has been a year of improvising like a madman (or madwoman), and this recipe is no exception. I used “salmon” fillets I got from the frozen section of the grocery store sometime… probably a couple of months ago, and I was one short. The broccoli

Like, if you took all the potatoes we’ve eaten since March and placed them in a pile, you could probably climb it and see into a second-story window. It’s obscene… but it’s also cheap, which is what brings us here today. Potatoes can

Late one night, Hubby and I decided we wanted peanut butter cookies. I didn’t feel like dealing with refrigeration, shaping, and all that other work that comes with cookies. So I took the lazy route and I made some dough instead. What’s better, I use banana in place of butter (you can sub the same
