As many parts of our country are still wishing for warm spring weather but dealing with chilly wet weather, we thought it perfect timing to share one of our favorite healthy and delicious comfort soups. Whether you are trying to overcome an awful cold or just want something to warm your bones while waiting for sunny days to find your home, this soup is sure to fit the bill.
It has been wet and cold here for days and to help warm up the family I decided to try a new slow cooker soup. Slow cookers are a must have for our family during this time of year. We love hearty flavorful comfort meals without all the time it takes to cook them.
With working most of the day, we want to enjoy our evenings together with our baby before she goes to bed rather than cooking and cleaning in the kitchen. She also has a dairy allergy, so I love finding meals that are family friendly and fit her dietary needs.
I am a firm believer that breakfast is not a meal that should be skipped! But busy mornings make it tough to make healthy meals that the entire family has time to sit down and enjoy. Luckily, this is an easy, quick and fresh breakfast that your family will love and can take to-go, if need be!
Sundays at our house, I try to squeeze in some extra cooking time. I will make a big breakfast bake, frittata, banana bread or these delicious egg muffins to enjoy throughout the week, without having to cook and clean up breakfast every morning.
I love one pan meals for an easy and quick week night dinner. Less pots, pans, and baking dishes mean less clean up and more time to enjoy with family. Fall brings chilly evenings, which often brings the family inside and together. What better way to show your family extra love than with a warm fresh from the garden harvest dinner?!
Summer and fall are a fantastic time to experiment with recipes that use your garden harvest. This recipe is one of my favorites because you can add or subtract a lot of different vegetables depending on your taste.
It is so versatile and works great as a side dish or is filling enough to serve as the entrée. A few other vegetables to try in this creamy pasta are: broccoli, artichokes, asparagus, peas or whatever has popped up in your garden! You can serve this dish over zoodles for another way to slip in more veggies and skip carbs! Stir in chicken or shrimp or serve it alongside your favorite grilled protein if your family prefers meat on their dinner plate.
