Once upon a time ago, I hated broccoli. My mom was a broccoli with cheddar cheese sauce fan when I was growing up, but I just couldn’t eat it. If I can’t eat a vegetable smothered in cheese, it’s probably not meant to be, right? Well, fast forward to last year. I saw a recipe for a broccoli and cheddar soup. It actually looked really good. So, I wanted to try it for Soup Sunday. I can’t tell you enough how worried I was about making a big batch of broccoli and cheddar soup. I mean, I hate broccoli right? Well, this soup changed my tune on broccoli.
There has been an ongoing battle in my household for a few years now. I must tell you, this post is hotly contested in my household. Samuel and I are at a strong disagreement over what “Indian tacos” are actually called. I have grown up calling and hearing these fried breads Indian tacos. Samuel, on the other hand, has grown up knowing these as Navajo tacos. I have never, ever heard Indian tacos called Navajo tacos. So we continually bicker over what these should actually be called. I’ve heard others just refer to them as fry bread. No matter the name, I’ve come up with an easy and delicious way to make them.
I am all about easy dishes, which you probably know by now. I don’t see much sense in making dishes that others can’t easily do themselves. So, this main dish focuses on being easy and simplistic. In fact, you only need three ingredients to make a delicious dish. It also requires little prep time and not a lot of bake time. So, if you are a busy individual, you may appreciate this simple, yet delicious dish!
I have come across a few recipes which stop me in my tracks. This was one such recipe. I was entranced by the cheesy look of this flatbread. Now, this isn’t a traditional flatbread. It is made from puff pastry, so it is incredibly flaky and buttery. It’s also topped with some delicious things. So, if you are searching for a new twist on pizza and flatbread, you have stumbled across the perfect recipe.
Another Soup Sunday has come and gone. However, this Sunday was a little different. I made a chili for Soup Sunday. Now, do you consider chili a “soup?” I mean, in the soup section of a cookbook would you find chili? I feel like chili would be in the soup family. I digress, this week I made a killer chili for Soup Sunday. This chili combines a few flavors in one amazing dish. It’s a bonus that you make this in the crock pot, and it’s wonderfully easy.
Along with Italian food, I love Mexican food. I am also a huge fan of casseroles. In fact, I’ve made a few casseroles on here already. A couple of those casseroles happen to be Mexican inspired. So, I guess you could say I enjoy making and eating Mexican casseroles. Anyway, this post includes a delicious Mexican casserole. Oh, and it includes Doritos. Doritos are always delicious.
Well, everyone’s favorite day of the week has come and gone yet again: Soup Sunday! OK, maybe it isn’t everyone’s favorite day of the week. I definitely love Sundays though. I look forward to making soup each week. Whether it be an old favorite or a new soup, the weekly tradition in our house has become something I look forward to each week. Not only are soups generally easy to make, they tend to be lower in calorie. This soup is so easy and one of the, if not the, lowest calorie soups I’ve made yet.
It’s no secret I love pasta. It’s also no secret I love cheese. Put those two together and you have a delicious combination. Normally, I love red sauce on pasta. However, I made a delicious One Pot Garlic and White Cheddar Pasta back in November that was killer. That pasta totally changed my tune on Alfredo sauce. Since I am new to the Alfredo sauce scene, I wanted to experiment with flavors in the sauce. This Alfredo is definitely exciting and different, also it is totally delicious.
There are some comfort foods that are slightly more difficult to have as a vegetarian. Growing up, we used to have chicken pot pies all the time. Buttery, flaky crusts with warm, delicious filling? Yes please. However, since becoming a vegetarian almost ten years ago, I can count the amount of times I’ve had a vegetarian-friendly pot pie on one hand. It’s just one of those foods that I miss having. So, for Soup Sunday, I decided to make a pot pie soup.
Macaroni and cheese. I am willing to bet that most people recognize those words together. Actually, those are two of my favorite things combined together into one delicious creation. Do you know what makes macaroni and cheese even better? Placing it into a muffin pan and baking it so it is in a portable, cup form. Oh, and adding a buttery, crunchy crust to it takes it over the edge.
