Slow-Cooker Garden Chili and Cinnamon Rolls

I think that a lot of people may find this combination to be rather odd, but cinnamon rolls and chili were a very usual meal for me during my teenage years (my high school cafeteria served it regularly). Many people from my hometown claim that this meal is unique to that particular city, so I […]

Zucchini Taco Boats {Tofu Taco Filling, Gluten Free}

Zucchini is a vegetable that I often find challenging. I always end up making the same old things (zucchini bread or muffins, sautéed in a bit of olive oil or added to a stir fry). Zucchini season seems to drag on each year though, and it is way too easy to get tired of the […]

Vegan Slow-Cooker Green Chili

Chipotle Sweet Potato Oven Fries with Chili no Carne

Good food is often messy food. This is the ultimate messy food. As an added benefit, this is also an incredibly easy dish. The chili may be started in a slow-cooker in the morning, and then all that is left to do is cut the sweet potato fries and put them in the oven. Easy […]

Easy Slow-Cooker Tortilla Soup

It is finally feeling like winter again in northern Colorado. I was just about to give up hope of ever seeing snow again before next Christmas when suddenly we got blasted with cold. It is perfect soup weather, especially slow-cooker soups. Slow-cooker meals are some of the best as far as comfort food goes. You […]

Chipotle Enchilada Strata

Over the last few weeks I have been trying to eat only organic foods whenever possible. It has been very interesting, and sometimes frustrating, to realize how many of the foods I am used to eating are not organic. One of these is a chipotle enchilada sauce that I absolutely love. I find most red […]
