Hoppin John Soup and Corn Bread

Hoppin’ John is a southern tradition for New Years Day eats and we usually try to have some in our house every year, for good luck. Sometimes we have it pretty traditionally with rice, sometimes over cornbread and sometimes as soup. This year, we went the soup route and it turned out fabulous. I usually […]

Healthier Guacamole

As I mentioned, yesterday, I’m in a “small bites” state of mind. I don’t watch much football but I always watch the super bowl with the hubs. He gets to watch the game, I get to watch the commercials and we both get to have some great food. Since the hubs and I are putting […]

Pico de Gallo

With the Super Bowl coming up and with the San Francisco 49’ers as NFC champs, I’m in a small bites state of mind. Appetizers, starters, canapes, hors d’oeuvres, antipasto, meze, finger foods … Just can’t get them out of my mind. Therefore, since the hubs and I are starting to put together our super bowl […]

Not Tuna Salad & Tofu Press Review/Giveaway (closed)

Not Tuna Salad is a mock tuna salad, made with garbanzo beans, that I’ve been making for years. Obviously, it won’t taste like tuna but I think you’ll be surprised at how nicely it imitates the ubiquitous dish that we all know and love. The texture and color is so similar that sometimes I forget […]

Chunky Borscht

Borscht is a soup that’s prepared mainly of beets. Being that I love beets, I’m not certain why I’ve never tried this dish before. Such a humble, unassuming bowl of goodness and I can’t stop eating it. Beet soup has its roots in Russia and other Eastern European communities and was typically served in poorer […]
