Chipotle-Style Chicken Burrito Bowl

One of the only ‘restaurants’ I ever go to is Chipotle. I’ve always loved how fresh their ingredients are, but never eat any of the meat because it’s not dhabiha. I actually don’t eat out very much anymore mainly because I’m always testing recipes for my latest cookbook and this site, but I do crave certain dishes I really … Read more

Spring Green Soup

Nothing says Spring in the culinary world like fresh green produce, although not all of it from this recipe has been grown right in our backyards here in the Midwest. I just love to make a lot of soups when the weather is on the cusp of cold, wet and rainy and just a little … Read more

With some rustic bread on the side, many soups can be quite filling and are a great way to feed a big family, usually by adding more water/cream/broth to easily increase the amount. We’ve … Read more

Egg Drop Soup

If you like restaurant-style Chinese Egg Drop Soup, just know that you don’t have to go out to have it- it’s so super easy and quick to make that you don’t even have to stress much over making it. You probably have at least some of the ingredients already, like eggs. Plus, you should always … Read more

Cream of Cauliflower Soup

This Spring started out rainy, then became the season I hoped it would be- beautiful fresh air throughout the day without a cloud in the skies, dew drops on the leaves in the morning, songbirds singing cheerfully, and new life appearing everywhere. Sounds like something out of the Little House on the Prairie, right? Well, that … Read more
