Brrrrrrrrr. Is the polar vortex back or something because this weather isn’t jiving with my soul. I’m writing to you bundled up like I’m going into the arctic: I’ve got on Tony’s oversized Nike sweatpants, fluffy warm socks and a shirt that doesn’t match anything.

The upside? I reheated a big bowl of this warm turmeric chickpea chicken soup and it’s fantastic as ever, even on the third day.

Slow Cooker Taco Lentil Soup that’s both vegan and gluten free. You’ll love this easy meal packed with plant-based protein!

Currently writing to you from Detroit! I’ve been here since Friday hanging with my bestie Sarah while we bake, photograph, shop, drink Kombucha beer and jam out to Christmas music. I leave later today to get back into the groove of being at home for a while, working and recovering from turkey overload.

’Tis the season for Mariah Carey Christmas music on repeat while I sit in my pajamas and refuse to leave the house (besides grocery shopping and hitting up the gym).

Ready for this vegan sweet potato corn chowder with a little hint of curry spice? It’s comforting, filling and a wonderful way to use up fresh or frozen summer corn.

Welcome back to post Labor Day weekend reality. Do you have a hangover? BTW I’m not talking the alcoholic kind of hangover. I’m talking about the food hangover that lasts for a day or two post stuffing your face with chips, all the dips, ice cream, and okay, several margaritas.

Am I just talking about myself here? Perhaps.

Now that March is officially here, I’m hoping we can expect warmer weather. Not that our winter has been anything but mild, but I still prefer spring weather. There’s nothing I’m craving more than waking up a little late on a Saturday morning, grabbing brunch at a new restaurant in the city, then strolling around with Tony for the rest of the day. Mostly we head to antique shops or bookstores, or sometimes end up grocery shopping at Trader Joe’s. Either way, I always have a good time moving, eating and enjoying ‘us’ time.

Here’s the thing though, and I hate to be the one to break it to you, but we’re bound to have some sort of chilly weather this month at some point. You know, it’s a very predictable Midwest thing; nice one day and snowing the next. When that moment comes, you’ll have this wonderful chili to make.

One can never have too many squash recipes. Especially considering that it’s cheap, seasonal, and boasts some pretty terrific nutrition stats.

Since we’re talking squash, I’ll admit that butternut squash is one of my favorites. The sweet, nutty taste is brought out even more when roasted too. I’m such a butternut squash fan girl, it’s ridiculous.

I’ve probably told this story a million times, but here it is again.

The story of how I fell in love with chile verde. How it screams everything warm and comforting to me.

So, here goes the story…

I normally don’t declare recipes the best for just any reason. In fact, if I’m saying something is the BEST, then it’s for a very good reason. Most often because I had multiple people try out a recipe and tell me it’s the best thing they’ve ever tasted; this happens most frequently when I bake cookies.

Little did I expect this turkey chili to surprise me with it’s thick texture and addicting flavor. But my goodness, it is wonderful. And I do have to admit that I’ve made it four times in the past month. It’s one of those recipes you can tuck in your recipe box or bookmark on your phone. Honestly, I’m just obsessed.
