soup sundays: italian inspired beef stew

We finally got snow!  So it’s the perfect type of day to make some comfort food.  I don’t eat red meat a ton but sometimes I CRAVE a good beef stew.  My husband moved here from Texas and he used to think it was so […]

I seriously could eat soup every day, but especially in the winter.  Lately I have been loving a good brothy soup.  Normally I cook with a lot of vegetarian broth but there is something about chicken broth that makes me feel comforted.  And I love […]
