Tomato Fennel Soup

Although I love classic homemade tomato soup, sometimes it is fun to switch things up and add new ingredients. For this tomato fennel soup recipe, I added some chopped fennel cooked in garlic, onion and olive oil. The fennel gives the tomato soup a subtle refreshing flavor. Using many different vegetables in soups makes them healthier, too! Garnish with fennel leaves and serve with a crusty baguette.

Easy Mexican Rice

Have you ever wanted to create your own Mexican style rice at home? I bet you didn’t realize how easy it can be to make it from scratch. All you need are a few ingredients you probably already have in your pantry — to make a spicy version, you can also add in some chopped jalapeño. The secret is letting the rice absorb the seasoned tomato sauce while cooking, instead of stirring it into already cooked rice. Serve this Mexican rice as a […]

Avocado Tomato Crostini

If you didn’t know, crostini in Italian means “little crusts.” Whenever I want a quick healthy snack, I love to make these crispy avocado tomato crostini. Baguette slices are slightly toasted in the oven, then topped with a creamy avocado spread and fresh sliced cherry tomatoes. In addition to making a great snack, these crostini make a delicious appetizer tray. I like to whip these crostini up while making dinner so nobody goes hungry waiting for dinner to be ready. […]

Pasta von Trapp

The hills are alive… with the sound of this pasta. OK, I can’t say I’m much of a Sound of Music fan, so that’s about as far as I’m going with that one, but as I have mentioned previously, IT’S SUMMER and so you should be stuffing your face with in-season tomatoes. Here’s an easy way to do it: a pasta recipe that’s half pesto, half fresh tomatoes. No cooking required, easy and delicious; tastes like summer. But why is […]

Tomato Basil Hummus

This homemade tomato and basil hummus is my favorite hummus flavor! I love eating it with vegetables, pita chips, or tortilla chips. In college, I became so addicted to tomato and basil hummus that I would frequent the little grocery store down the street from my apartment just to buy their tomato and basil hummus and blue corn tortilla chips after class! I actually haven’t had it since those days, but the other day I found myself craving it again […]

Peanut Butter and Jelly Grilled Cheese S’mores Mac & Cheese Cereal & Milk Bagel & Cream Cheese Quesadillas And now, roasted salsa. This is one of those recipes that won’t complicate your grocery list, it won’t break the bank, and it takes almost zero effort to make. AND it fulfills my three ingredients or less theory.

Forget Color, We Want Taste!

You go to the super market and pick the ripest looking tomato you can find. You dig through mountains of red succulent fruits to find the perfect few that will make it to your dinner table; heck, you might even go for the tomatoes that are vine-ripened: fresh, bright red, and bursting with flavor. Then you get home only to find that your beautiful tomato is …flavorless. It’s what you get when you combine science and beauty. Scientists stumbled upon […]
