While I am not vegetarian or vegan, I do stick to a whole foods, plant based diet. I try to consume as little commercial meat as possible, with no beef at all, and since our wild game options are somewhat limited, I frequently eat vegetarian and vegan meals.

This is one of my favorite recipes – a Chicken Taco soup loaded with veggies, warm, comforting and spicy, and super easy to make. It takes a few minutes to prep the veggies, but then you just dump everything in the crock pot, and forget about it all day!

Let me preface this recipe by saying: NO, this is not the one with the jelly. There are recipes out there for dishes that include jelly in the meatballs, or served on top, and while it is clearly enjoyed by some, I have to admit I am of the group that shudder at the thought. Blegh.
Anyway, this recipe is relatively quick, is cooked in one pot, and is simply to die for. It’s rich, delicious, creamy, warm and filling – I know, not the type of recipe you’re usually looking for in April! But since Winter refuses to let go here in New England, we are still enjoying our hearty recipes, this one especially. Every time I make it, my husband asks when we will be having it again before his bowl is even empty! Continue reading

This dish was one of those creations that results from an empty fridge. Playing Chopped is something that has resulted in many of our steady favorites, and rarely lets us down.
This dish is simple, and you can easily adjust the flavors based on what you have in your own home. I will warn you, it is insanely difficult to smell this cooking all day long. I wanted to dive head first into my crockpot and eat every last bit of it! Continue reading

This is a dish I have been making since I was a child. I am not sure where the original recipe came from, but many of my friends, coworkers and even some of their loved ones have been making this dish in my name ever since! Continue reading
If you’ve seen some of my other recipes, you know I am a major fan of lettuce wrap tacos, as well as one-pot dinners. While this dish wasn’t quite one-pot, you could easily make it that way. I cooked the barley separate, and since I use only dried beans, cooked those in yet another pot. But you could get pre-cooked frozen beans (or canned.. some brands now have BPA free liners) and if you cooked the barley first, and then mixed in the rest of the ingredients, it could be a true one-pot wonder!
