10-Min Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup

Easy Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup recipe (via thepigandquill.com) #healthy #dairyfree #glutenfree #vegetarian #mealprep

Vegan Cream of Broccoli Soup – a super simple, healthy cream of broccoli soup packed with fresh flavor, bright color and creamy, cozy vibes — and made entirely without dairy. I love soup. As a kid — and even early into adulthood — I was a sucker for canned soup. The bloated, squishy, noodles. The melt-in-your-mouth carrots. I adored them. And then one day, somewhere around my cooking-for-roommates college years, I heard Rachael Ray insist that, “If there’s one thing you don’t need to buy canned, it’s soup. It’s just too easy to make good soup from scratch.” And, much … Read More

Hawaiian Shrimp Scampi (aka Shrimp Truck Garlic Shrimp)

I have to admit, I’ve kinda been holding onto this recipe for a while. I made it once when my mom was here, shortly after we moved into the new house and she gifted us (as one does) with two huge bags of jumbo shrimp. Then again for my in-laws when we visited them a couple of months later. And again for our good friends when they stayed with us for a weekend this summer. Maybe twice for myself in between. Who’s counting. But here’s the thing. On each of those occasions, Chris was either not home to enjoy the … Read More

Hey lovers! I’m here! I’m practically bald! I’m making and eating cake! It’s Valentine’s Day! Truth be told, the last couple of weeks were rough. I, it seems, am the complete opposite of a chemo badass. Rather, I’m a chemo wimp. A chemo wuss. A chemo weenie. I wouldn’t wish that shit on my worst enemy. Trump administration included. IT’S THAT GNARLY.  Given all of that, Chris, it seems, is saint of all saints. I know I’ve sung his praises before, but there’s nothing like seeing your better half at their absolute.freaking.lowest and still being everything you’d be when they’re at their … Read More

Creamy Hummus Soup with Crispy Soyrizo Gremolata (Vegan)

Like so many recipes that find their way to this space, this soup was a happy accident. A well-meaning attempt (and I do mean well-meaning, as not a corner was cut!) at Kenji Lopez-Alt’s intriguing Israeli hummus recipe — more on what makes it so intriguing later — watered down, quite literally, into a slurpable meal worthy of your soup spoon. Too many times I’ve daintily tucked pita into a creamy bowl of restaurant hummus while every fiber of my being screams good lord woman, eating it by the oversized spoonful is the clear winner of all ideas ever! And too many times, apparently, I’ve … Read More

Hold on to yer hats, everybody. I’ve been baking again. And somehow I always choose to do so on days when it’s sweatstache weather. Or maybe it’s just always going to be sweatstache weather from here on out. Is this just how we’re going to roll for, like, always? Seriously, I feel like how The Rock looks in pretty much every F&F franchise movie (or, more accurately, every movie ever). That is: dripping with perspiration to the point where you just assume there’s a tiny person off camera whose entire job consists of soaking him down with a tiny mister … Read More
