Soup, Stew, and Chili

Green Chile Chicken & Quinoa Stew with HEB Primo Picks

Green Chile Chicken & Quinoa Stew

For the last three weeks, the majority of our meals have come from either the hospital vending machine, a Chick-fil-A drive-thru, or Disney World. Talk about extremes. (And my favorites were obviously from Disney World!) After getting back from our trip this week, I spent most of yesterday limping around the kitchen for some make-ahead [...]

Baked Chili & White Cheddar-Hatch Cornbread with HEB Primo Picks

Baked Chili & White Cheddar-Hatch Chile Cornbread

We’re coming up on week 4 and salty, overseasoned Houston football “fans” have already thrown in the towel on the Texans’ season. Three times. And we’re 2-1. This city has had a long, jaded journey with professional football. And let’s face it, those fans probably had a few too many while tailgating. BUT THAT’S NO [...]

Slow-Cooker Chicken & Sausage Stew

This is the time of year when I’m usually trying to figure out if this is the coldest, longest winter that I can remember in Texas. I know it’s not… and it really was barely 2 months ago that I was whining about the lack of a real fall in Texas. But it’s cold. For [...]

Happy 2012! After a wonderfully overindulgent December, we are in total detox mode over here.

Strawberry Soup

After an “exhausting” day of snorkeling, and lounging by the pool with bottomless rum punches on our honeymoon in the Caribbean, the Foodie Groom and I managed to tear ourselves away from paradise for a late lunch. In paradise. After spending the day outside, we wanted something light and cool so we started with a [...]

Quick Chicken Tortellini Soup

Tortellini soup is one of our go-to quickie weeknight dinners. It takes about 15 minutes from the time I crack open the fridge with that puzzled, “what can I make” look on my face to setting bowls on the table. And now that my dishwasher is broken, any meal I can make that doesn’t leave [...]
