Slow Cooker Wild Rice Butternut Squash Soup

With this slow cooker wild rice butternut squash soup, I am trying to ease into fall. Here in Florida, we are still having warm temps, as is most of the country. With this soup, I hope to get myself in the fall mood, ready for the pending holidays and family celebration recipes. I like this […]

Fresh Summer Garden Tomato Soup

Don’t expect this fresh summer garden tomato soup to taste like the canned version! In this recipe, you control the salt level and the ingredients aren’t whipped into being totally smooth. I recommend finding tomatoes that are deep red, preferably homegrown, for a richer, fuller tomato flavor. I added tomato sauce to the recipe for that […]

Maryland Old Bay Vegan Pasta Salad

I found this Maryland Old Bay Vegan Pasta Salad recipe on Go Eat and Repeat: an old favorite jazzed up and made into a Maryland regional dish with the addition of Old Bay Seasoning. I have eliminated additional olive oil from the recipe, since the vegan Italian dressing has plenty of oil already! This would be […]
