Vegan Black Bean Chocolate Chili with (optional) Tequila

Vegan Black Bean Chocolate Chili

This black bean chili caught my eye when I first bought this book years ago. Since my husband doesn’t eat mushrooms it was never made.

Crispy Polenta Bites + Polenta in the Instant Pot

Crispy Baked Polenta Bites
Polenta takes 5 minutes in the instant pot – five! With no stirring – that’s right no standing over a pot at the stove. This is NOT the way I was raised making polenta.

I am always trying new recipes. My husband likes to joke that I never make anything twice. I do repeat a lot of my recipes but I also don’t want to be bored in the kitchen or have us bored eating the same item over and over. Continue reading →

Vegan Pressure Cooker Baked Beans
Summer time is almost here for us! We have just a few days remaining in the school year. That means lots of barbecuing and cooking outside for us. Eating out on the patio is probably one of our favorite things. There is something about sitting in the sun and fresh air that makes us relax and eat a little slower. Continue reading →

Cheesy Hatch Chile Rice

Cheesy Hatch Chile Rice
I am sure that the internet has many versions of hatch chile rice. This is the version that I grew up eating. It is by no means a healthy side dish it is however one that I love. I try to make this rice every other month, I would love to have it more frequently but I would have to do a lot more cardio. Continue reading →
