Creamy Spring Soup

It’s not spring yet, but spring is coming. In just 5 days! It’s still so cold that it feels like 5 years. I’m so tired of the wind. I feel cold for a long time after I come inside, which is why I made this soup! It’s hot, comforting, and reminds me that spring is…

Three Ingredient Breakfast Bake

1/3 of the ingredients are from the freezer. If you don’t have the other 2/3, I think you’re beyond help. This is one of my favorite breakfasts! The good news is, it’s entirely sugar free. It’s also high in protein. We won’t talk about the cholesterol. We’re trying to stay positive in 2018. It takes…

Berry Sandwich Smoothie

I like recipes that make you think. Or mildly alarm you. Now see, when I cleaned out the freezer, which started this whole shebang, I made a shelf in the door just for ice cream sandwiches. And I was planning to make this smoothie with frozen yogurt, to keep up some pretense of health (if…

Meatball-Ravioli Soup

This soup is just plain ornery. You want soup? You want a light, refreshing soup? You think soup is broth-y and elegant? This soup isn’t. This soup is glorified tomato sauce. This soup has meatballs. This soup has ravioli. Ravioli! Make this soup. And you will enjoy this soup. This soup isn’t one of those…

Berry Tart

This, like most things on this website, falls into the category of looks-frou-frou-but-is-actually-easy-and-takes-under-20-minutes-to-make. My favorite category. This is great for tea, coffee, milk, holidays, tea parties, dinners, breakfasts, lunches, potlucks, and stress eating. Stick a candle in it and call it an elevated birthday treat. I’ve learned that if you call food elevated, no one…

Southern Salmon Sheet Pan Supper

This comes together in less than 15 minutes, including baking time. I may have cheated and gotten the barbecue sauce out of the fridge, but everything else is 100% pried from the depths of the freezer! This is a complete (yummy!) meal, and stays good for about a week (or a month in the freezer)….

Freezer Week

I cleaned out the freezer recently, and painstakingly organized it. It had all the usual suspects- frozen fruit and vegetables, pie crust and puff pastry, and a bunch of frozen meat. So I’m doing freezer week! A whole week of meals made out of stuff everyone has deep in the recesses of their freezer.
