Loaded Baked Potato Soup - Slow Cooker

Loaded Baked Potato Soup - Slow Cooker by Rachel

PagesLoaded Baked Potato Soup - Slow CookerThis soup has definitely made the rounds of the blogosphere. I've seen it numerous times on many different blogs. I first saw it on Josie's blog and made it shortly thereafter but didn't blog about it for whatever reason. (Or maybe I mashed too many of the potatoes it was more like mashed…

Broccoli Pesto Pasta

Broccoli Pesto Pasta by Rachel

PagesBroccoli Pesto PastaI was definitely intrigued the first time that I saw this recipe. Using broccoli as the sauce for a pasta instead of just in the pasta or on the side seemed pretty smart. I was definitely skeptical, though. I just wasn't sure how it would translate or if it would be too...broccoli-ish. Once I started…

Coconut Milk Blueberry Pancakes

Coconut Milk Blueberry Pancakes by Rachel

Breakfast has been pretty hard for me since going dairy free while nursing Will. Cereal is out because I don't really like any milk substitutes, I like cheese with my eggs, pancakes/waffles/French toast all require butter and milk. *sigh* I've been eating a lot of toast and bagels topped with coconut oil with a side of fruit and…

Shredded Beef for Tacos - Slow Cooker

Shredded Beef for Tacos - Slow Cooker by Rachel

PagesShredded Beef for Tacos - Slow CookerSo my slow cooker is definitely getting a workout lately. I could say that it's because we have a newborn and a toddler to take care of but that's not really true. Will is a super easy baby and while Jack is 2, he's pretty easy, as well. (I'm sure I just jinxed that.) The slow cooker is just…

Pretzel Dogs

Pretzel Dogs by Rachel

Definitely set aside a couple of hours to make these for a special, fun occasion. I even sort of want to make these for Thanksgiving but I…

Pineapple Salsa Rice

Pineapple Salsa Rice by Rachel

Mexican food has become my default when I don't have anything on our meal plan or I don't feel like making whatever it is I had planned for that evening. Originally we were going to grill some fish and roast a bunch of vegetables and call it good on this particular night. But then I was flipping through a magazine that was FULL of…

Chocolate Cream Pie for Pi Day

Chocolate Cream Pie for Pi Day by Rachel

PagesChocolate Cream Pie for Pi DayI have had a whole bunch kitchen failures lately, like outright bombs. Dry cakes, cookies falling apart, chewy chicken - it's been an interesting month! ;) Pies have always, always been my nemesis in the kitchen. I've made a few that have been very good but most of them never make it to the blog…

Cranberry Buttermilk Muffins

Cranberry Buttermilk Muffins by Rachel

PagesCranberry Buttermilk MuffinsEvery year I buy bags and bags of fresh cranberries around Thanksgiving and it never fails that I use 1 for cranberry relish on Thanksgiving day and then have a bunch of bags leftover. In the past I've made scones and a cake, both of which we all enjoyed, but I thought I'd try something that I could…

From Scratch Green Bean Casserole

From Scratch Green Bean Casserole by Rachel

PagesFrom Scratch Green Bean CasseroleGreen bean casserole seems to be one of those dishes that you either had every single Thanksgiving (and maybe Christmas) or you never had it all. It also seems like people either love it or hate.I always enjoyed it growing up but I think I mostly liked the topping. The year that I found out…

DIY: Homemade Chocolate Sauce

DIY: Homemade Chocolate Sauce by Rachel

It's no secret that I like to make things from scratch. I like the challenge and I love knowing exactly what's in the things that we are eating. I make pizza sauce, bagels, Oreo cookies (faux-reos), hamburger buns, chicken nuggets...all from scratch on a regular basis.To this day, my favorite way to enjoy chocolate sauce is over…
