Taste of Home: Tomato Soup

Fall is almost upon us- football is starting up, veggies are coming in from the garden, temperatures are starting to cool off. I love fall. It’s the start of a new school ย year, cooler temps, and a load of crock pot recipes, soups, and roasts. Those are the comfort foods of my childhood. And after…

Chicken a la Dean

Cooking for 1 is hard. Cooking for 1 when all the recipes you know how to make serve 15-30 is even harder. My posts have been fewer simply because I haven’t needed to cook as much. Between traveling and eating leftovers, I only need to cook a few times a week. Last week, I was…

Fall off the bone 3 ingredient chicken.

Tonight is open house at school. It’s that really long day where teachers are working from 7am to 9pm making sure rooms, supplies, parents, and kids are ready for day 1. It’s one of those days where takeout is a teacher’s best friend on those precious hours off. The slow cooker is a great substitute…

Fried “Rice” for Everyone!

Mitch recipe shopped and cooked dinner last night. He found a GREAT new skinnytaste recipe for a fried rice. The trick- there’s actually no rice in this dish! This gluten-free, protein packed meal was a great one pot meal which required no special ingredients, time, or effort. The recipe I will link below walks you…

A little repeat on a few busy week!

It’s one of those crazy weeks. With school picking up this week and new classrooms to arrange, building in time for menu planning and cooking has been difficult. I’ve been eating out at lunch with new coworkers, hitting the gym, then getting so excited to think about next week that I leave little time for…

White Chicken Enchiladas

I love Mexican food. When I go out, there’s a decent chance I am getting something in a tortilla. If I want fresh, I’ll go fajitas, and if I want indulgent, I go with enchiladas. These were a bit more time consuming than my go to enchilada idea (cook ground beef with taco seasoning, roll…

French Onion Soup

I love French onion soup. This is probably ironic for anyone who knows me since I loudly proclaim my distaste for onions frequently. But there’s something different about French onion soup. The large crouton and mountain of gruyere cheese probably help, but I also like the sweetness of deeply caramlized onions mixed with that salty…

First Meal โœ…

Well the move is officially done! After a whirlwind of a weekend, the dust is finally settling and the boxes have disappeared. I forgot how hectic moving is. It’s simultaneously knowing your routine and organization and structure from an old place while also trying to adjust and improve for the new place. We finally got…
