Mexican black bean stuffed potatoes

Mexican black bean stuffed potatoes-3

sponsoredpost

I seem to be on a bit of a Mexican kick lately – burrito bowls, chilli mac, now these Mexican black bean stuffed potatoes… I just love it all! It’s hard to go wrong with beans, cheese, veggies and a bit of spice.

This time I used my favourite Mexican-inspired flavours to stuff a humble spud.

Creamy cauliflower cheese soup

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

Creamy cauliflower cheese soup-3

To be honest, ‘cauliflower soup’ isn’t a phrase that would usually make me swoon… at least, not until now. This creamy cauliflower cheese soup is the kind of soup that barely even makes it into the bowl.

Try a spoonful straight from the pan, just to check seasoning (perfectly sensible) –> immediately need another because it was so delicious –> ‘just one more’ –> somehow there is no soup left in the pan.

If you have enough self-restraint to actually be able to serve this soup in bowls, you should definitely, definitely make it. It’s thick, it’s creamy, it’s cheesy. It’s even …read more

Rigatoni alla Genovese – Maybe the Best Meat Sauce You’ve Never Heard Of

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

I have no idea why this amazingly flavorful Genovese-style meat sauce isn’t way more popular than it is. It’s quite simply one of the best pasta sauces you’ll ever taste, thanks to a very slow cooking process, and massive amounts of onions.


So, I just thought of two really good reasons why this isn’t way more popular. The recipe takes you a good 10 hours to make. In case you haven’t heard, this is roughly 9.9 hours longer than your typical Millennial is willing to spend doing something.

Also, slicing six pounds of raw onions by hand …read more

Ham Salad

By Elise Bauer

Ham Salad

One of the best reasons to serve a ham for a holiday dinner or family gathering is the prospect of leftover ham, don’t you think? Ham keeps well and can be used for a hearty ham and bean soup, a pasta dish with peas, or for a crowed pleasing ham salad.

It’s one of those feed-a-lot-of-people comfort food salads that makes you look forward to leftovers.

Put it in a sandwich (or a slider bun!), eat it plain, or add it to macaroni. The basic components of our favorite ham salad are ground or finely diced ham, sweet pickle relish …read more

Asparagus Artichoke Breakfast Casserole

By Elise Bauer

Asparagus Artichoke Breakfast Casserole

Looking for Easter or Mother’s Day Sunday brunch ideas? I love the convenience of a breakfast casserole because you can easily assemble it the night before and have it ready to bake in the morning.

Perfect hands-off cooking leaving you time for the important things, like Easter egg hunts, or Mother’s Day mimosas.

Walnut & Parsley Pesto – “A” Pesto, Not “The” Pesto

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John)

When someone hears the word pesto, they think of that delicious, but oh so common, basil, garlic, pine nut paste. While that particular pesto is amazing, I hope this walnut and parsley version serves as a reminder that “pesto” is not a recipe, but a technique.


First, grind some garlic and salt into a paste with a mortar and pestle. This releases the full fury of raw garlic’s real flavor. Fair warning: this is some strong medicine, and I mean that literally. To that we add some kind of nuts. Walnuts give you a gorgeous, buttery flavor and texture, …read more

A Sweet Adventure

By makemendgrow

Izzy in the snow with Daddy-A sweet adventure

Not to brag, but I may have the most adorable Valentine! I’ve been itching to get on the road and to go on a sweet adventure with kiddo, plus we have a new snowsuit that I have been dying to see her in. For Valentines Day, we hit to road to Snoqualmie Pass and had ourselves a snowy adventure!

Kiddo, looking like a well-dressed Oompa Loompa, made her way through the snow banks pretty well getting stuck briefly here and there. She and her little best friend slid down hills, threw snowballs and had an overall great time.

The adults also …read more

Catching the sun

By makemendgrow

final suncatcher

I love craft time with Izzy. Its busy, it’s messy, it’s silly and she enjoys it so much! It’s a great way to spend a rainy day indoors and we have some pretty sweet art on the fridge, although, I do love things that aren’t glitter glue and paint pictures! Recently, after stepping on yet another broken crayon, I thought about what we could do with all those pieces, and it occurred to me, we needed to work on catching the sun to balance out the rain (and use up some of those darn crayons). See? Snazzy! Please ignore …read more

One pot vegetarian chilli mac

One pot vegetarian chilli mac-8

I seem to say this all the time, but wow. I think this one pot vegetarian chilli mac may well be my new favourite dinner. Soooo unbelievably delicious. Pasta, veggies, beans, cheese: it’s a full meal made in one pot, and it’s so good.

If you’re unfamiliar with chilli mac, it’s basically a cross between chilli and macaroni cheese (hence the name!). Start by making a really simple chilli, with peppers, onions, kidney beans and lots of spice. Then add the pasta. It cooks right there in the …read more
