Fresh Corn Soup with Avocado Salsa

Fresh Corn Soup with Avocado Salsa

Corn season is getting closer and I can feel it in my midwestern bones. Straight off a freshly grilled cob is my favorite way to eat corn, but I make do with all other forms when ears aren’t available. Frozen and canned get me through every season that’s not corn season. This soup is ultra […]

Guinness Beef Stew

I’d like to introduce you to my newest obsession: Guinness Beef Stew. It’s like beef bourguignon, but instead of using red wine we’re using Guinness!

30 Minute Black Bean Soup

We have a salsa problem in our house. We continue to buy new jars of salsa, open them, eat 75% of the salsa, put the unfinished jar in the fridge, and restart the cycle. Which means our fridge is constantly filling up with mostly-empty salsa jars. Corn salsas, chipotle salsas, regular chunky salsas, green salsas. […]

Curried Chicken Wild Rice Soup

Pumpkin Chili

Is it too early in the season to declare this my favorite chili of the year? I’m doing it anyway. I hesitate to even call this a pumpkin chili because it really is just a good, basic chili that happens to have pumpkin in it. And I am convinced it has universal appeal to individuals […]

Chicken Corn Chowder

Chicken Corn Chowder in bowls topped with bacon and scallions

Do you ever accidentally over-buy sale produce? You get home from the grocery store feeling like the responsible, money-saving adult that you are only to look in your pantry and realize that you have neither the space to store, nor the willpower to consume the 10-pounds of sweet potatoes you just bought. But the whole bag was $2.99! […]
