As I have said before, soup should be a food group…especially during the winter!
This hardy minestrone is super-healthy. You can opt to make it with or without the pasta. Also, you can experiment with using other beans other than the ones listed in this recipe.
I would recommend doubling the recipe and freezing the extra in some large-sized Ball jars. These are on sale usually every-other-week at Hobby Lobby!
My dear friend gifted me with some amazing zucchini this past weekend. I started thinking of some culinary opportunities. The original options of stir-fry, zucchini bread and ratatouille came to mind but I wanted something extraordinary.
A casserole, perhaps, but something with a Mexican flavor. This came together in a matter of minutes and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
You can add your own flair by topping it with fresh avocado slices, cilantro or simply a dash of lime juice.
It is raining again in Southern California. This has been one of the wettest winters on record but no one is complaining! We need the moisture, albeit maybe not this much, to help with the years-long drought.
I ran to the Whole Foods before the torrential downpours started and gathered up some ingredients for some Chili.
This recipe only takes about 10 minutes to prepare and 90 minutes to cook.
Serve it with a handful of tortilla chips or even some oven-baked polenta.
