Mega Meal! – Vegetarian Black Bean Chili


When I know I’ve got a busy week ahead, I like to make a mega meal (an enormous pot of something delicious and healthy so I don’t have to think about cooking for the rest of the week)

I got this recipe from my pal Martha (Stewart) here

This is a really simple and delicious recipe, I don’t think you can really go wrong with this one.

I’m the kind of person that doesn’t mind eating the same thing for dinner for days in a row, but if you aren’t that type of person, this meal can be mixed up by adding different cheeses, sour cream, hot sauces etc, or you can wrap it up in a burrito, or serve it over fries or with rice… (you get the idea, it’s versatile)



Glorious Gnocchi

I’m still adjusting to daylight savings.  While I love waking up to the sun in the morning, I can’t seem to get used to leaving work each night in darkness. As the temperature drops, I find myself craving more comfort food.  One of my absolute favorite comfort foods is gnocchi; it’s potatoes, it’s pasta, how could you go wrong?

This recipe has become a favorite at our house.  It is incredibly rich, creamy and delicious. The combination of sage and butter gives it just the right flavor and smells incredible. It also has squash and kale in it so it’s good for you too!



For some reason it tastes much better when my boyfriend makes it.  It’s possible that he takes some liberties with the butter measurements, or maybe food just tastes better when someone else makes it.  Either way it’s a great recipe! Always a crowd pleaser.
