Good Eats

I'm not one of those people who can just make up recipes.
Or just, you know, throw shit in a pot and it comes out tasting well.
That makes my brain hurt.
I can follow a recipe and SOMETIMES add stuff to it.
It stresses me out most times though to tell the truth.
So when I find a good recipe I get excited.
(Also, I really like food)
So here are some recipes we have loved making lately.

Tomato Basil Soup from Big Girls Small Kitchen
Delicious, wouldn't change a thing about it.
Also, saving me a ton of money because now I don't have to go to Panera and get their tomato soup which I'm pretty obsessed with.

Quinoa Black Bean Burrito Bowl from The Shiksa in the Kitchen
Eat your heart out Chipotle, these are so good.
That was a cheesy sentence, but seriously these are good.

Spicy Roasted Corn and Poblano Soup from How Sweet It Is
This needs some tweaks (I just botched the peppers so we'll do it a different way next time), but it's solid and tasty and Mike loved dipping his chips into it.

Roasted Spiced Chickpeas from Whole Living
Tasty solution to munchy cravings.
Mike ate a double batch of these the other day in one sitting.
Thassa lot of protein.

You guys have any good recipes lately?

  2. Those chickpeas!! I was totally not expecting them to be canned. Amazingly easy and a way for me to meet my cravings for chickpeas since my husband isn't the biggest fan. Awesome find!

    1. Yay I'm so glad! We double the recipe every time FYI.

  3. Made the tomato soup in the crockpot yesterday and it was indeed delicious! And super easy! That's a new favorite recipe!
