This lit­tle smooth­ie has recent­ly become my favorite quick break­fast — it’s pret­ty much the best smooth­ie I’ve ever had! And because I can con­trol the amount of added sug­ar, I feel like this smooth­ie is actu­al­ly a healthy choice!

Mom’s Perfect Pot Roast

When I think of pot roast, I have two mem­o­ries:

First, as a kid, I kind of dread­ed “pot roast” Sun­day because some­times (not always) the pot roast was so tough and dry. It was those tough & dry occa­sions that made me dis­like roast alto­geth­er. 

Sec­ond, it always seemed so com­pli­cat­ed. Pre-brown­ing, sea­son­ing, flour, peel­ing veg­gies, grease splat­ter on the stove­top and a loom­ing smell of roast in my hair as I sit in the pew at church.  Con­tin­ue read­ing

*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.

Late­ly, around my din­ner table, we are all lov­ing smoked pork ten­der­loin. Here is anoth­er recent recipe I shared (Rose­mary Smoked Pork Ten­der­loin).
