I love soup. Like really love soup. My husband doesn't have the same attitude...there are very few soups that he likes. But with this potato soup? He gobbled it right up!

It wouldn't be Thanksgiving with out mashed potatoes. The turkey is of course the star, but mashed potatoes play a quiet and important role of best supporting actor.

With out those creamy potatoes, a Thanksgiving feast just wouldn't be the same. So today I'm going to show you have to make some bomb mashed potatoes. They are so easy! Really, it is hard to . . .

When I think of a shrimp boil I envision long picnic tables lined with newspapers and huge pots of boiling water surrounded my lots of family and friends. A seafood boil is a tradition that started in Louisiana and has spread throughout the south.Shrimp Boils for a Week Night Dinner I'm a shrimp lover, so I was instantly drawn to this tradition, but I wanted to do it on a smaller scale for my family. So I came up with the idea to load up some foil packs and grill them. The result . . .

Yes, I'm an Idaho girl. From 10 on I was raised in potato country. I've lived here in Cali for the last almost 5 years and totally loved it! We will be heading back to Idaho soon and as excited as I am, it really breaks my heart to leave what has become a second home for us. Palm trees will be in my dreams. Mountains and snow.. here we come!In reality, I really do love Idaho. Fresh crisp air and broad sky's. The people are active and happy, really a great place to raise a family, and that's . . .
I had a baby 2 months ago (she's way too cute and smiley and full of pink and bows and scalloped edges. I love it.) so life has obviously been a little crazy. I took a little break from recipe creating in the kitchen, and while I was still cooking, I hadn't had a delicious, hearty breakfast in a while. I've recently become obsessed with kale, and I've always been obsessed with bacon (who isn't? OK, Carly isn't, and all of our other vegetarian friends, but you can easily omit the bacon and use . . .

More time outdoors, less time cuddled up with a blanket. It's not quite spring yet, and we have a few cold days left- so I have another comfort food left to post.>>See, just around thanksgiving I truly came to know the real meaning and feeling of comfort . . .

I have wanted to make one of these pies for a long time, but to be honest I'm not the biggest pot pie person. My husband, however, is. He really enjoys and good pot pie, and since I have a good pie crust recipe (and know I can pull it off) I decided to see if I could pull off the inside.I looked up a bunch of other recipes and noticed a lot of them called for things like canned cream of chicken soup or a can of veg-all. Not what I'm going for. I want the creamy gravy inside. maybe even . . .
