*CopyCat* Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

This yum­my, cream-based veg­e­tar­i­an toma­to soup is a per­fect copy­cat ren­di­tion of the toma­to basil soup at a lit­tle place I came to love dur­ing my time in Dal­las ((La Madeleine)). I first came across La Madeleine while get­ting my Master’s at SMU and thanks to it’s prox­im­i­ty to cam­pus — not only did I get a Master’s degree, I also became very famil­iar with the taste their sig­na­ture soup.

Devil’s Pool Granola ((A Big Cedar Recipe))

I am so excit­ed to share the recipe for the best gra­nola I have ever tast­ed. Last August, the fam­i­ly & I trav­eled to Bran­son for a fun “last hoorah” before the start of the school year.

Green Beans with Apricots and Walnuts

It has been a while since I have shared a real­ly good side dish — and this is a real­ly good one! I have about 5 recipes in wait­ing to be pub­lished, but I have to hold back and give this lit­tle recipe a chance to shine.

Heirloom Tomato Salsa ((straight from the garden!!))

You guys may have learned this by now, but let me just say it again for the record! Chips & sal­sa are my love lan­guage. It used to be Chips & sal­sa AND Diet Dr. Pep­pers from Son­ic, but I gave up the DDP addic­tion 10 months ago ((and it was SO hard to do — I am NEVER going back!!)). Any­way, about the chips and sal­sa… Con­tin­ue read­ing

Spicy Shrimp Tacos & Emily’s Special Sauce

If you saw my pre­vi­ous recipe: Sum­mer Seafood Pas­ta, then you may me notic­ing a mini-theme. Yes, for the last 6 weeks, I have been crav­ing seafood, espe­cial­ly shrimp.
