Cajun Shrimp Soup

I remember having a soup like this as a kid and not thinking too much of it.  It wasn’t very exciting, maybe even kind of boring.  All of a sudden a couple weeks ago I got the memory of this soup in my head.  It was small, kind of a passing “hey, I remember that, […]

Vegetarian Stew with Dumplings

Sometimes you just need some comfort food, right?  I actually don’t remember having dumplings like this much as a kid, but it still screams comfort food to me.  To me, poultry seasoning is such a comforting flavor, and with soft, fluffy dumplings over top, that’s just perfect 😀  You could, of course, substitute 2 cups […]

I love veggie burgers.  There, I said it.  I love them!  The possibilities are endless, you can use any kind of bean, grain, nut, etc, let alone the choice you have with vegetables.  Really, they’re awesome.  I love these so much that I think my husband may never look at a veggie burger the same […]

Even in the spring I crave soups and stews.  I love any kind of soup.  There’s something about it that’s so comforting and while I made this and finished it a few days ago I’m wishing I had more of this soup because today is a rainy and gray day – perfect for soup.  But […]

Wheat Berry Veggie Salad

Usually I love pasta salads.  Obviously, they need to have a good dressing, but making one at home isn’t hard at all.  I try to choose a good whole grain pasta and lots of good veggies and fresh herbs, and then it suddenly dawned on me.  I have a cupboard full of wheat berries.  Probably […]
