Smoked Sausage & White Bean Soup – Instant Pot or Stove-top

This down home & classic bean soup is fantastic stove-top or in the Instant Pot!

It could very well be that I’m in denial! I am astonished each time it snows! I do live in Minnesota, but really? Snow twice last week and again the other day. But snow to me = soup, so soup it is. Again. 🙂

Easy Taco Skillet Dinner - Serve as is or tuck it into Tacos or Burritos. Quick, too.

Some of you might remember I made a one pan Porcupine Skillet Dinner a few weeks ago. It was surprisingly good. It inspired me to see if I could do the same thing with a Mexican style meal. And so my Easy Taco Skillet Dinner was born.

The Original Fat Burning Cabbage Soup - makes a lot & freezes beautifully

Awhile back, someone mentioned Cabbage Soup – in a rather derogatory way. Funny thing is, I love Cabbage Soup! Which isn’t all cabbage, by the way. There’s lot’s of other good stuff in it, too.
