And weird shapes. 

Each a work of art --- but even more beautiful when put together side by side.  ... Read more » about Heirloom Tomato Flatbread with Honey Goat Cheese and Basil

My Little Helper + Slow Cooker {Chicken Corn Chowder}

Honestly, I don't remember ever spending much time in the kitchen growing up. Or grabbing a stepladder or chair to get closer to the action. Maybe because of this, or maybe just because... I always hated cooking. For my entire 20s, and into my 30s: Hated it.  And then something happened -- I realized I liked being creative in the kitchen. It wasn't the cooking itself I hated, it was following recipes.  I was being held back by the list of ingredients on the page. ...

Let me just get this out now...

Homemade Vegetarian Double Decker Tacos

We don't frequent Taco Bell, and as I mentioned in this post, Dear Hubby doesn't really like Mexican food.  But he LOVES their double decker tacos.  Crunchy layered goodness! So when brainstorming my next vegetarian meal attempt, these came to mind.  I saw the MorningStar Farms' Crumbles at Walmart and put them right into the basket.  These would be my base.  I bought a bunch of other veggies that I thought I could easily disguise, like a frozen veggie combo pack of corn, black beans, red peppers, and onions and a bag of fresh broccoli "slaw" ...

Slow Cooker *Mostly* Vegan Zuppa Toscana

I really have to laugh at myself for this one.  I was so excited about my new plan: to cook more vegetarian meals to help Dear Hubby get more vegetables and less animal fats/proteins per the doctor's orders!  I went to the market and bought a bunch of weird new foods (ha!) - cheese that's not really cheese, meat that's not really meat, and a whole host of new veggies and fruit ...
