Bacon-Corn Chowder With Shrimp

This month’s issue of Cooking Light had the most enticing picture of a bowl of Bacon-Corn Chowder with Shrimp in it, that I absolutely had to make it. You know how much I love making soup, and it had been a while since I’ve whipped up a batch, so I had to tend to my … Continue reading

Mint Lemonade While transferring pictures from my camera to my computer today, I realized that I have a few random things to “catch up” on in the blog, and I’m going to try to do so in the context of food, since that is supposed to be my blog theme, right? Okay, so recently I … Continue reading

CSA-Week 5

Well, if I implied in any way that our Week 4 CSA box was lacking in any way (and even if it was, the weather would be to blame!), then Week 5 certainly made up for it! Lots of fun stuff in this week’s box!: Tonight I ate a late, solo dinner, in which I … Continue reading

Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad

Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad

I totally love this new sweet potato recipe I tried today: Sweet Potatoes with Warm Black Bean Salad, from Eating Well. It’s extremely simple, hearty, flavorful, and nutrish! Baked sweet potatoes sound tasty, amirite? But who wants to wait an hour for them to bake on 90 degree day? Not me. Today I discovered the … Continue reading
