Before we do a deep dive into the wonderful world of cookies, I rounded up 24 comforting soup & stew recipes for you to balance out those cookie treats all winter long.

Pumpkin chicken chili with black beans and quinoa! A protein packed delicious dinner that can be made in your slow cooker.

Pumpkin week recipe #2 is here and it’s a savory one! I’m writing this while we’re driving back into the city after a long weekend of wedding planning. It’s raining out, No Doubt is blasting and one of our windshield wipers isn’t working correctly.

Secretly I’m hoping it will continue raining for next few days so I can cozy up under a blanket, take a bath every night while chilling out to my Spotify playlists, followed by a big bowl of chili with sweet cornbread on the side.

We’re back with another Round Up Sunday! I hope you guys have had an amazing weekend, and that this roundup is a day-brightener for any “Sunday Scaries.” I’ve found that the best way to cure the scaries are to get a workout in – even if it’s just a nice walk outside – practice some self-care (hello relaxing bath + calming playlist), and of course, make delicious food like these healthy slow cooker recipes.

Homemade roasted tomato basil soup with garlic, olive oil and caramelized onions. Delicious, flavorful and the best way to use up garden tomatoes! You’ll never want to go back to the canned stuff after you try this.

When I was younger, I despised tomato soup. The flavors never seemed to call for me, nor did I ever crave grilled cheese. My favorite was Mom’s chunky beef stew that simmered and bubbled on the stovetop for hours in our small yellow duplex kitchen back in Minneapolis. It wasn’t until high school that I began to crave the comfort of creamy tomato soup after Mom started buying Progresso’s hearty tomato.

Golden chicken lentil soup made with creamy light coconut milk, turmeric, ginger, garlic, and cumin. Delicious flavors; this soup will be your new favorite!

How was your weekend? We had a lovely one over here with beautiful vibrant blue skies and 60 degree temps. Saturday night was even nice enough for us to grill out with homemade cumin turkey burgers, roasted peppers and plenty of wine to fill our glasses.

Last week was an entirely different story though. It was cold, rainy and I could never seem to get warm enough even when I was wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket.

The cure for having the chills? A comforting bowl of delicious soup simmering away on the stove top and devoured with your favorite crackers on top.

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.
