Start your morning right with farmers Market hash loaded with crispy red potatoes, spicy poblanos, creamy eggplant, earthy mushrooms, and turkey sausage! I’m lucky enough to live in an area with several farmers markets that stay open all year, but after months where there it seemed like only apples and squash were available, it’s so […]
The other day, I asked fans of the Healthy. Delicious. facebook page what their biggest obstacle to getting a healthy dinner on the table is. An overwhelming majority of people said they just didn’t have the time and energy to cook. The next most popular answer was that they didn’t want to wash a ton […]
This meaty turkey and white bean chili and spicy cornbread have a secret – both have pureed vegetables hidden inside! This post was sponsored by Green Giant® Veggie Blend-Ins™. Thanks for supporting the brands that keep me inspired in the kitchen! When we were putting together out grocery list last weekend, Shawn asked me if […]
I feel like I’ve been posting an overabundance of desserts lately – that was definitely due to a very poorly planned editorial calendar for this month. I have a few more sweets planned for next week but I have some great savory recipes planned for early October. (And I promise, what I have in store for next week is definitely worth it!)
But for today, let’s eat soup. I took a quick facebook poll to see what people wanted me to post next and soup won by a landslide. I love that you all love soup as much as I do! This chicken tortilla soup is one of my new favorites. It’s rich, spicy, and super satisfying.
This salad has a surprise ingredient: pasta!
Pasta isn’t a salad ingredient that you typically see here in the northeast. The only other time I’ve seen it was when I was in Minnesota last spring, and from what I can tell it’s a midwest thing. I kind of love it though! It adds a nice chewy component to the salad and bulks it up to make it more filling – in fact, that one little bowl was more than enough for me for dinner.
Albany is so far behind the times when it comes to food trends. I think the FroYo trend finally hit its peak here this summer – what, five years late? Food trucks are just starting to gain popularity, but there are still no Korean tacos in sight. At the going rate, I figure we still have two years or so before they start making an appearance. (Korean in general is tricky to find, although there is a decent place to get bi bim bap.)
Luckily I’m pretty good at reverse engineering the flavors that I’ve had when I’ve visited other, more on-the-ball places. Sometimes I even get paid to do it. (Yup, this is another one of the recipes I put together for Old El Paso.)
