We are HUGE fans of Zupas Cafe in Utah. This was like the mecca for the perfect soup, salad, and sandwich place. We always grab their Nuts About Berries salad and this Wisconsin Cauliflower soup. Since we live quite far from the actual restaurant then we make copycats at home, of course. Make them together and your belly will be so happy.Let's break down this salad.Nuts about Berries Salad There are three main components added to the salad to make the ever popular nuts about . . .
The first time Steve and I tried hummus was in Vegas at a California Pizza Kitchen. I had heard about it somewhere, so I convinced him to go for it with me. It came with this tomato mixture on top and warm triangles of pita bread. We both instantly fell in love. And it was healthy!

Make it up into chimichurri steak tacos and it's all you'll ever want to eat ever again.What is chimichurri Chimichurri comes from Argentina.

"Pour some sugar on me!!! I'm hot, sticky sweet--from my head down to my feet, yeah!" OK I love the combination of spicy and sweet. Except for Mexican candy, my friend is always trying to get me into it, and I'm just not quite sure I'm there yet. I'll try it one of these days. If you love the spicy-sweet combo, this Spicy, Sticky Chicken with Roasted Apples and Potatoes is for you!I like chicken thighs because they hold up well to the extended baking period, and especially the broiling . . .
We are obsessed with our pressure cookers here at OhSo. Two of us have Instant Pots and the other two have Power Pressure Cookers XL. Tender meats cooked FAST seem to be the golden ticket, but I wanted to do something different. Maybe even vegetarian...this Pressure Cooker Veggie Lasagna is a total winner.Pressure cooker lasagna isn't really different from lasagna cooked in the oven. You use no-boil noodles, layer the sauce, ricotta, cheese as usual, add a bunch of veggies, and cover . . .
Strawberry Bran Muffins made of whole wheat flour and oat bran will keep you full and the delicious strawberries will make you forget you're eating bran!We are so excited for this Mother's Day giveaway! My most favorite part about being a mom is all the time I have to cook and bake for myself, and eat my meals when they're piping hot out of the oven. NOT. I wanted to create something that I can grab on-the-go, that will fill me up, and not make me eat again in an hour. These strawberry bran . . .
All of us here at OhSo are mothers. There are 13 1/2 children between the four of us, so motherhood is a HUGE part of our lives! Not only do we text about recipe ideas, photography, collaborations, SEO, and scheduling allllll of the time, but kids and family life are also an integral part of our conversations and bond. I'm expecting my third child in 4 weeks (fingers crossed she comes, like, now), so I wanted to do something really special this year for Mother's Day for our readers who have . . .
We DO like Green Eggs and Ham...Waffle Sandwich, that is! Aren't you tired of oatmeal or toast? Let's try something new for breakfast, shall we? Brunch? Brinner? Trust me, it all works. Crispy Waffles I have been on the hunt for the perfect, crispy waffle for YEARS. Years, my friends. We have a delicious, healthy, hearty recipe for Oatmeal Waffles on here, but I wanted something simple and light and crisp--you know, the guilty kind with absolutley no health benefits. I've tried folding in . . .
You know what Asian restaurants are really good at making? Two things--Asian food and doughnuts. Here in Texas (and back in California) we have real doughnut shops on every corner. So I've grown to be picky, and these absolutely do not compare to grocery store doughnuts! And the Asian food...MAN do they make some good fried rice, egg drop soup, crab rangoons, and pork spring rolls!There's a lot of food that I love to fry, and I feel like I fry more food than most. People complain of it . . .
I'm really loving this Buddha Bowl week! They're healthy and do wonders for your PB&J lunches. When we were texting about what recipes we'd do, I immediately knew my newest obsession, these Chimichurri Grilled Chicken Bowls were my ticket.Chimichurri I've had chimichurri a few times before, some better than others, and even have another recipe on the site for Chimichurri Steak Tacos. But when my Argentine neighbor moved in two houses down, you know I hit her up for her chimichurri. . . .
Girl Scout Cookie season is nearing an end, but they will live on in my heart forever. So forever, that I made a pie you can make year-round with those babies. Thin Mint Chocolate Pie. It's rich, it's cool, it's what I want from Girl Scouts.I'll tell you a secret: these aren't even Thin Mints! They're Grasshopper cookies by Keebler. Sold at your local grocery store all year long. I think these taste better than Thin Mints and are a heckofalot cheaper too! I keep them in the refrigerator . . .
Once you make these soft, fluffy, tender tortillas, you'll never go back to those store-bought tasteless discs! We love tacos. I can't tell you how many posts we have here that have that sentence in it. You know what makes tacos lousy? Store-bought tortillas. You know what makes tacos great? Homemade flour tortillas. . . .
