Cheezy Baked Potato Soup

cbp1

We are well into the fall season. I find that this is the time I start to crave more savory but not necessarily filling foods. In this case I wanted all the flavors of a baked potato but not the density of it in my belly. I felt like this soup was a great compromise for me because I got to enjoy the baked potato but I didn’t feel the need to take a nap after eating. The flavor is creamy, cheezy, and soothing like a cozy blanket. Yes, you read that correctly. I can’t be the only person who thinks certain foods reminds them of cozy bed linens…LOL

Anyway, click here to find out the recipe for this soup.

Fully Loaded Nachos

Image

This post is a long time coming. I got side tracked by some really good literature. D, I am blaming you for this one, because you got me hooked on that book. This is totally your fault.

Anyways… sometimes I like to spend my weekends kicking back and streaming movies on Netflix. The release of Orange is the New Black was creating so much buzz that I had to check it out. Since it was a series release with the entire season available for my viewing pleasure, I knew that popcorn wouldn’t be enough to sustain me. So I planned my snack food/meal accordingly.

What better food to shove into your mouth while mindlessly watching television other than nachos. It has everything you require from a snack/meal. Great flavor, crunch, salt, protein, and mild sweetness from the avocado. Along with the tang from the Pico de Gallo. I couldn’t have planned a better snack. These fully loaded nachos were everything and the added plus was that Orange is the New Black turned out to be so good. I can’t wait for season two. I highly recommend these nachos for marathon tv watching whether it is Scandal, Breaking Bad, Shameless, or Orange is the  New Black. Whatever the show is these nachos will get you through it.

Mushroom and “Cheese” Baba Ghanoush

Image

I was all prepared to put up a different recipe when this one muscled it’s way into today’s post. Sometime last year a friend and I went for a decadent late lunch at a Lebanese restaurant. We feasted on Hummus, Baba Ghanoush , fresh pita bread and so much more. Well today my stomach was feeling a bit nostalgic for that meal. So I decided to whip up some Baba Ghanoush for lunch today. Only I changed it a bit by adding mushrooms and Daiya. Also, rather than eating it cold, I chose to have it warm instead. It was fantastic! I urge you to try it. Click here for the recipe.

Mac N Cheese (Sorta)

Image

Okay, so this isn’t macaroni. I prefer to only use whole wheat pasta but I was unable to locate some in the store. Which means I ended up making Fusilli pasta and cheese instead. But no worries. This is a quick meal that is comforting and easy to make. It is great for when the weather is dreary outside and you just want to stay home to indulge in this dish while wearing comfortable clothes. It is Memorial Day weekend but instead of the typical hot weather it is cool and dreary outside. In my book, weather like this calls for comfort food. Click here to find out the recipe.
