This is a simple way to put together a quick and healthy lunch to take to work or school. Add a drink, and you have everything you need for a filling lunch. Some members of our household like to have their hummus and veggies with pretzels or pretzel chips, so we have some bags of those on hand, too. It makes packing lunch on those busy weekday mornings a breeze. I got the idea for this make ahead lunch from this video for “Masonables” on YouTube. In fact, I fell in love with this concept. This is no big surprise […]
This is not a question I am asked very often. In fact, it’s a problem that I have had only once. During my 30 days of beans, I made a pot of Cholent. After we ate, we still had about 9 cups of left overs. Having never made cholent before I had no idea that the volume of the finished product would be so great. The next day, the leftovers were drier and stickier, and didn’t look very appealing. I ate some for breakfast, and decided that it would require a makeover before being served again. I began searching the […]
Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of my favorites. It’s a very easy recipe and is delicious. My favorite part is the layer of chips and melted cheese on top of the bowl of soup, but the whole thing is a special treat.

The mixture is combined with tomatoes with green chilies, beans, corn, broth, and spices before being simmered until the flavors are fully combined. The soup is ladled into oven safe bowls and topped with tortilla chips and […]
You may be asking yourself why I have a vegetable soup listed during my 30 days of beans. If you’ve looked at the photo, you’re probably thinking that you don’t see any beans in the soup, and you’re right. There are no beans added to the soup, but the broth it is made from is that quart of ham and bean broth I saved from the pressure cooker pinto beans and ham. Bean broth is, after all, a vegetable broth, isn’t it. In this case, it’s a vegetable (bean) and bone broth. You know that I don’t like things […]
A few years ago, Texas caviar could be found in the salad section of every grocery store and free standing deli in our area. I don’t remember exactly how the stuff from the different delis was made, and I was planning on buying some in an attempt to reverse engineer it. Unfortunately, I noticed that it’s not in the deli cases anymore. Since I was working through my 30 days of beans, I decided to try my hand at recreating the recipe. The only things I knew with any certainty was that it contained black eyed peas along with chopped […]
