What’s not to love? Here’s why this recipe is so loveable . . . The Ahi is slightly warm and peppery on the outside and refreshing and cool on the inside. The wasabi glaze is spicy, sweet, rich and perfectly smooth — all at ounce.  It’s truly a bite that will satisfy every desire your […]

Ginger-Carrot Soba Noodles | COOKINGONTHEWEEKENDS.COM

Are “spiralized” vegetables to the food world what “bedazzled” shirts are to the clothing world? The word “bedazzle” is funny.  Right?  Are you with me?   And then there’s the “bedazzler” (yes, this makes me giggle, too) — which you need if you’re to bedazzle anything!

Sometimes I eat something so good that I just have to make sure you know about it.  You might be thinking this is an ordinary orange. However, looks can be deceiving.

Vegan Creamy Mushroom Soup Recipe

Skinny Cream of Mushroom Soup | cookingontheweekends.com

There’s Cream of Mushroom Soup and then there’s Creamy Mushroom Soup. Both are delicious, but the Creamy Mushroom Soup is made sans cream — though you’d never know it.  Never. The super creamy texture comes from the puréeing process, which is best achieved in a powerful blender.  This, plus the earthy flavor of the mushrooms […]
