October is National Pizza Month! This is a celebration we can get behind in my house. We love pizza. take out, dine-in, frozen, and homemade are all welcome here. Homemade pizza is a great, kid-friendly, family activity.  I have many fond memories of making pizzas at home when I was a kid and I hope to pass that along to my kids. Making pizza a home can be as simple or as involved as you’d like it to be. This can be a quick weeknight meal or a fun weekend activity.  I’m general, you need a base, a sauce, cheese, and toppings. We love doing “personal” pizzas that allow us to customize to our preference. Super Simple The easiest homemade pizza is really...
Fall is a seemingly elusive season in South Louisiana, but as soon as the air gets crisp, I’m wearing a sweater and looking for soup. This simple soup uses early fall vegetables, cooks quickly on the stovetop, and freezes well. It can even be modified to make it vegetarian/vegan. I first had this soup a few years ago when my grandmother brought me a batch when I was sick. Later, I copied it from my grandmother’s recipe book to add to my collection.  Since this soup uses basic ingredients it really can be made year-round, but fresh early fall vegetables like broccoli and carrots are the main ingredients. You can also modify and add other vegetables you like or have...
It’s officially the fall season. With the cooler temperatures outside, my family knows that it’s also soup season in our household. My go-to is a one-pan recipe known simply as Taco Soup. It’s versatile in that I can use dried, frozen or canned vegetables. I can also utilize low-sodium or organic products in this recipe as well. The most fun I have with this recipe is the spice level. I like a little bit of spice but not too much to the point that I can’t enjoy a spoonful of this hearty soup. My husband and I joke with each other that I brought the spice into his life. When we dated, he told me he didn’t like to eat...
