Sweet Curry

Do you ever want curry in a hurry? I am a HUGE curry fan! Some of my favorite curry eating experiences have been in Thai restaurants. I love yellow curry, so I came up with my own version here. Needless to say, I could eat the whole pot of this sweet curry! It is really […]

Creamy Bean with “Bacon” Soup

I am still loving this soup season and have another wonderful soup recipe to share with you! One of my all-time favorite soups growing up was Bean with Bacon soup. It was so comforting to dip my piece of toast into that rich, smoky soup and feel that all was right in my little world. […]

Curried Cauliflower

I try to eat at least one serving of cruciferous vegetables each day. I think of it as my anti-cancer “supplement”. Now, raw cauliflower can be a little chalky in texture. I don’t mind it, […]
