Homemade Tomato Soup – Super Easy & Delicious!

I grew up on Campbell's Tomato Soup. It was the meal of the sick and infirm in my house. Caught a cold? Here's some Campbell's Tomato Soup. Get your finger slammed in the car door? Have a bowl of piping hot canned soup. Got dumped? Here's some soup - heat it up in the microwave. Nothing beats tomato soup with a grilled cheese

Is Hello Fresh Worth It?

One of my goals this year was to eat healthier and to cook more often. That's hard to do with a picky eater and opposing dietary concerns. Between my daughter's allergies and my low carb lifestyle I was falling into a rut of menus so I decided to try Hello Fresh. Is Hello Fresh worth it? I wondered that too. Their ads fill my social

Walking Dead Recipes – Daryl’s Marinated Chicken

This week for Walking Dead Recipes we're doing Daryl's Marinated Chicken. The idea is to create a recipe using things that are likely to be available after living in the zombie apocalypse for two years (about where we are in the show based on Judith's age and not Maggie's pregnancy). I assume chickens would be raised both for the eggs and the meat. Since it

Big Mac Hot Dish with Noodles

Earlier I posted a recipe for Big Mac Hot Dish, but because I was concerned about my use of Tater Tots in the recipe I also a Big Mac Hot Dish with Noodles using elbow noodles instead of the tots. Initially I did not want to use noodles, it just seemed like a weird combination of flavors - pickles, cheese, tomatoes - to have with

I Made This – Pizza and Wine!

I can't believe I made this - pizza and wine! And by 'made this', I mean I made everything in this image by myself and from scratch. I made the wine and I made the pizza. I made the dough - I let it rise, punched it down and shaped it into pizza crust.  I made the sauce, from tomatoes I canned last summer and

Redhead Ranting 2016 Roundup

For your reading pleasure I've put together my sometimes annual Redhead Ranting 2016 Roundup. Every other media outlet does a roundup so I thought, what the heck, I'll do one too! I'm actually surprised I wrote enough this year for a roundup. In fact, I actually wrote and published 60 posts this year, which is my third time high since I started blogging in 2007.

Cheesy Smoked Sausage Hotdish Instant Pot Recipe

I've been cooking with my Instant Pot just about every day since I got it a few weeks ago.

Is Macaroni and Cheese the New Cupcake? And Does That Mean The Economy is on the Upswing?

Remember when cupcakes appeared on the scene? Suddenly cupcakes were everywhere. Stores opened up on the street selling just cupcakes (wtf?!) and reality shows were produced on a scale second to rednecks blowing up things on the History Channel. Cupcakes were everywhere. Pretty little things, too cute to eat. Cupcakes a great investment I attended an event for women entrepreneurs last year filled with nothing

Let me eat cake!

(Do you have any idea how many people, when writing about cake, use the title 'Let them eat cake'? Lots, so I changed the title of this post to something more accurate but less French.) Today is my birthday and I am going to have cake! I've never been so excited about cake before but that's what happens when you give up carbs for New
