I haven’t posted a recipe from Soup Sunday in quite a while. So, it’s about that time to share another delicious and easy recipe for a soup I love. Now, I’ve posted a couple other soups that may seem similar to this one. However, I promise this soup is really different. I have made a couple tomato soups before, and both were great successes. This soup combines a wonderful tomato flavor with the interesting texture of quinoa.
Sometimes I just want a no-fuss, easy side dish for meals. I love cooking, but sometimes I get lazy. So, for “Mexican night,” I needed a simple side dish. I’m a huge fan of Mexican rice, so that seemed to be a perfect side dish. I have made a Mexican Rice Casserole before, but it requires slightly more work than I wanted to do. So, I decided to make a simplified Mexican rice side dish. This is so easy you only need one pot!
Sometimes I have to admit that I get bored with very simple recipes. I’m not saying they aren’t delicious in their own right, but occasionally I get bored and feel the need to jazz up my recipes. So, you may know I love Mexican food, in particular enchiladas. I usually order cheese enchiladas from any Mexican restaurant I go to. I also have a recipe on here for Skinny Cheese Enchiladas. Don’t get me wrong, I love cheese enchiladas. But even Samuel and I agree that sometimes those get boring.
Some recipes are so easy to make, you may wonder why you never have before. I’ve posted a few recipes on here that only require a handful of ingredients. I never even thought about making some of these recipes until I stumbled upon them. This post features another easy recipe. This one contains a few ingredients, most of which you probably have in your pantry. However, it requires only three steps and a crock pot. I’m not lying; only three steps separate you from a delicious side dish!
So, I feel like I owe an apology. I’ve said some things I now regret. Back in January I said some really hurtful things. Now I need to apologize, and I hope you will forgive me, oatmeal raisin cookie. On my Pumpkin, Chocolate, & Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies post, I said some mean things about the oatmeal raisin cookie. Now I feel bad. I called the oatmeal raisin cookie boring and less successful than other cookies. I hope oatmeal raisin will forgive me.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Instead of posting a recipe related to something romantic or something Valentine-y, I promised you a post on breadsticks. Now, this may not seem like a post fit for Valentine’s Day. However, these breadsticks are the Crock Pot Pot Pie Soup’s soul mate. These breadsticks are the soup’s one true love. And I love these breadsticks. What could be better than a post based on a love between foods, two foods I happen to love together?
So for the new year, I decided to make a resolution. I’m already on a fitness journey, so I wanted to pick a resolution that focused on food. I decided I wanted to try a new food each month. Now, this could be a food I’ve never had before, or this could be a food I’ve had but that I personally have not made. So for the next year you will see some recipes that feature one or both parts of my resolution. This is the first post in my resolution collection.
One of my coworkers inspired this post, and she doesn’t even know it. She mentioned that she was looking for pesto sauce at the store one day and couldn’t find it. I told her she could make her own. I have no idea if she actually did, but my own advice stuck with me. I’ve never made pesto sauce, so it was only right if I tried making it myself. After all, I did suggest it to her, blindly.
Merry Christmas! I hope this post finds you eating some delicious treats and spending time with loved ones. This may seem like an odd post for Christmas, but I think all food is perfect during the holidays. One of the most comforting foods, to me, is pasta. Pasta is one of my favorite foods. I especially love it in casseroles when it is melty and cheesy. This recipe does just that!
This post fits well in my unintended series of oven fried foods. I didn’t know I would have so many posts about oven fried foods, but here I am. Only this time, I’ve been making this recipe for a few years. This is one of the cheapest and easiest side dishes to create. It is also low calorie and very filling. These oven fries are a cherished recipe of mine, and I would love to share!
