Healthy Cream of Mushroom Soup

Healthy Cream of Mushroom Soup

So if you have talked with me recently you'd know that I'm getting a bit obsessed with making my own sauces, dressings, marinades, cooking soups, you name it, if you can make it in a food processor, I'm trying it! I can see where the convenance of popping open a can of cream of mushroom, cream of chicken or even cream of celery soup and throw it into a casserole, crock pot dish or your favorite dish to make it creamy. I'm all about convenance and whatever is quicker these days. Cooking with two kids around or a cranky baby is a regular occurrence at my house these days. However, I'm trying to really cook healthier for my family, that means more fresh fruits and vegetables, less processed stuff. It's not like I'll never buy a box of crackers, bag of chips or canned soup again, but I can at

The Texan New Yorker – Featured Friday

Happy Friday folks!! Man oh Man I feel like this week was the length of a month! I'm so behind with my blogging world, I was so ahead for so long then my second surgery sent me into a whirlwind, but I'm here! Even if it is me typing the night before (so unlike me!) I actually cooked my first real dinner in over two weeks last night! Never thought I'd get sick of casseroles, sandwiches and take out but I am! So another Feature upon us!

Healthier Dijon Vinaigrette

Healthier Dijon Vinaigrette

I think my new addition is making homemade salad dressings! Thanks to my best friend this one came into my life about two weeks ago when she had me over for dinner and served me a spinach salad that was consumed with this goodness! The next day I texted her and asked her for the recipe so I could have it all week on my salads! I got mason jars for Christmas and I love using them for everything and anything! This is the perfect thing to use them for! Keep them right in the fridge for a few days and by the time the dressing can go bad...........it's gone!! In my belly!! I love salads because you can change them up with switching out the dressing or even whatever you are putting into it. I for one like to mix my greens with spinach and romaine lettuce. I love adding tomatoes, cucumbers and

Maple Syrup Spaghetti for #SundaySupper

Happy Sunday everyone!!! It's so exciting to be hosting this weeks #SundaySupper event! I've come to realize over the years that family is family however they don't have to be blood to be family. I have best friends who have been a part of my ups and downs and have celebrated such amazing milestones with my husband and I, I have friends I've met since I've had children, and for the past two years I've found some pretty amazing friends through the blogging world, foodie friends are friends that just "get me". So I'm honored to be around the table this week hosting recipes inspired by our favorite holiday movie and/or songs! How fun huh! I have to be honest, for a better part of eight years the holidays were lost to me. I lost my dad at 22 and I never thought my holidays would ever be the

Jessica's love for cooking came from her grandmother. She loves sharing time with her family in the kitchen and she really hopes to spread that desire onto her 3 children. Yes! 3 children! You know how much I gain respect for anyone that has one child

Light Blue Cheese Dressing

Light Blue Cheese Dressing

I've always loved Blue Cheese Dressing, well not as a kid (ewh it smells like farts we used to say!) but have you ever looked at the fat and calorie content?? Seriously it's bad.....So I went on search of a light recipe, stores don't even have that many light versions. This recipe was adapted from Gabi over at Honest Fare, I changed it a little but not much, I replaced the yogurt with light sour cream because it's just what I had on hand. Oh what's one more new foodie site for me to love! Use this dressing for any salad, Momma's Wedge Salad or even to dip with your favorite veggies!! YUM!!! Ingredients: 1/4 Cup of Light Blue Cheese 1/2 cup light Sour Cream Juice of 1/2 a lemon 1 tablespoon white vinegar 1/4 teaspoon salt Cracked black pepper to taste Sprinkle garlic
