Three Bean Turkey Chili

  It may seem strange to be sharing a wintery turkey chili recipe when it’s summer, but the last week around here was rainy and gray. And cold. Cold enough that I wanted something warming and soothing. So I made a big pot of turkey chili. I always make double and we eat it for […]

Spicy Gazpacho with Avocado & Shrimp

These last few weeks have been hot, hot, hot. HOT. In reality, it’s only been in the upper 80’s, but in Seattle that’s end of times type weather. So I’ve been loath to turn on the stove or oven at all if I can possibly avoid it – we’ve been using the grill a lot […]

Chicken, Wild Rice, and Kale Soup

Ahhhhh, it seems like winter just doesn’t want to let go this year. Even way down here in the TX, where typically this time of year we’re already down swimming in the Frio River. Because we’re hardy like that. But not this year. I’m sitting here in my fleecy pants, with a fire going in […]

Lightened Up Cream of Broccoli Soup

Yup. Still cold here. Still soup weather. Soup is the only thing that makes me okay with never, ever being warm. Okay coffee too. Soup and copious amounts of coffee. Last week I ordered the ‘California Pack’ from Bountiful Baskets, maybe in hopes that there might be sunshine in there, somewhere. But instead, I got […]
