Thai Chicken Soup – 3 Ways

Let me tell you more about how much I love my electric pressure cooker. Yesterday I went shopping with my mom for important things like tissue poofs and $5 French wines from Trader Joe’s. By the time I got home, it was getting dark and my family was growing impatient for dinner. I had seen a promising Thai Chicken Soup recipe on Pinterest, but it was supposed to cook in…

Paleo Turkey Chili

My favorite part of Halloween is probably the annual “make-the-face-of-your-pumpkin” photo. That never gets old. What does get old? The heat. I know, we choose to live here, but can’t I just wear a scarf once in the month of October? No? Ok fine. I’ll just take my whiny self into the air-conditioned house and curl up with a nice bowl of chili. This chili is incredible, and so worth the…

Mexican Chicken Soup

On March 6, 2010 my friend Mary emailed me a recipe for Mexican Chicken Soup. She sent it to a bunch of our friends from college who had been asking her for recipe ideas because we were, well, awful in the kitchen.  While most of us were still learning how to make boxed mac and cheese without burning the house down, Mary was hosting cocktail parties with fancy finger foods…

Oh, and I made my first batch of coconut chicken chili. Friends, this is good. So good.  Serve over rice or quinoa with a sprinkle of cilantro (or basil if you’re a cilantro-hater), peanuts, and a squirt of Sriracha. I promise, you’re…

With our busy schedule, the crockpot has become my new best friend.  I…

5 Crockpot Chili Recipes

I’m pretty sure everyone in Phoenix made chili for dinner last night. We had a refreshing cold front blow through and my Instagram feed filled up with friends sporting scarves and proclaiming anything under 70 degrees to be chili weather. I’ve been using my crockpot almost every day lately because it makes my life a million times easier, so I set off in search of some healthy crockpot chili recipes.…

Easy Turkey Chili

It’s pouring rain right now.  POURING.  We keep looking out the window, mouths wide open, “It’s still raining.  Can you believe it?  It’s still raining!” Rain means a break from the heat. Rain means a preview of fall temperatures. Rain means chili. This is an older recipe, which means I haven’t updated it for our paleo low-FODMAP month, but this would be easy to tweak.  I’ll just take out the…
