This coleslaw is supposed to taste like the awesome slaw at KFC. And…it does! Husband said that the only thing it needed was for the slaw to be chopped up a little finer and it would be a perfect match. … Continue reading

Red Beans-and-Rice Veggie Burger

These patties are oh-so-delicate, but I think that might have been because I didn’t mash up my beans all the way. It doesn’t really say how much to mash them, but I did leave a lot that were whole. Maybe … Continue reading

Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Parmesan Soup

I dusted off the Crock Pot for this one! Really, this soup couldn’t be easier. Instead of transferring the soup to a blender, I used my immersion blender and that made it easy! I couldn’t get the Parmesan to totally … Continue reading

Spaghetti Squash Casserole With Ricotta and Spinach

This dish was good, but it was REALLY good if you got some of the mozzarella on your fork! If it didn’t have any cheese in it, it was really kind of bland. Also, take a look at the photo…it … Continue reading

Black Bean Chilaquiles

I have made chilaquiles twice now, and both times my husband acts like he is confused about it. “Is it a soup??” “A stew?” “Seems like it should be over rice or something!” Anyway, I LIKE them, but he doesn’t … Continue reading
