Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Posted by Anthony on October 22, 2017 in Soup


Serves: 8

Time: 2 hours

Difficulty: Easy

The other day, my wife requested that I make Tomato Basil soup some time. Rather than just getting a can of it at the store, I decided it was high time to try my hand at a new recipe. So I sought out some recipes and found one that seemed like a good one (though let’s be honest, most every recipe was about the same). Well, I gave the recipe a go, and admittedly, it was a complete bust. I followed the recipe exactly, and the end result was bland and overly brothy. So I had to improvise and add in some last-minute magic. In the end, my off-the-cuff efforts were worth it, as the final product was one of the best Tomato Basil soups that my wife and I have ever had. If you’re in the mood for a good, flavorful, and healthy soup to warm you up, look no further. You’ll be glad you tried this recipe!

Beignets

Beignets

Posted by Anthony on August 14, 2017 in Dessert


Serves: 15-20 (2 beignets/serving)

Time: 60 min (active); 4+ hrs (inactive)

Difficulty: Medium

This past Sunday morning, I wanted to surprise my wife with one of her favorites: Beignets. We had recently attended a food truck rally, which has a beignet truck that is her absolute favorite, so this treat was definitely on our minds. I found a beignet recipe from Just a Pinch Recipes, and whipped up a half-recipe, which ended up making about 20 beignets (sized about 2″ x 3″). The recipe for the dough isn’t hard at all — it’s the frying that can get a little messy. But that aside, the end result was absolutely delectable, totally worth the frying mess, and definitely a recipe I’ll be making again. So if you’re looking for a great sweet treat, look no further and try this recipe now. You’ll be glad you did!

Fresh Corn Cakes

Fresh Corn Cakes

Posted by Anthony on June 30, 2017 in Side


Serves: 4-6

Time: 20-30 min

Difficulty: Easy

Last night, along with the new Strawberry Lemonade Sangria that I made, my wife and I were in the mood for some BBQ Kebabs. But I also wanted to try out a new recipe for a side dish, and ultimately landed on a recipe for Fresh Corn Cakes. I ended up making them without the “summer salsa” that the original recipe called for, opting instead to top with diced tomatoes, corn, and shredded lettuce. While I think the summer salsa from the original recipe would be delicious, I don’t think I missed it too much with just the tomatoes, corn, and lettuce. If you’re in the mood for a fresh way to use some corn this summer, give this recipe a shot. You’ll be glad you did!

Last night, I was once again in the mood for some new recipes. Since it was a nice warm summer day, I decided it was high time for a cool, refreshing drink. My wife found an article/video with 4 Frozen Sangria recipes, and we decided to try out this Strawberry Lemonade Sangria. Other than the process of freezing the wine and lemonade, this is a super quick and easy drink recipe that’s sure to cool you off on the warmest of days.
