Roasted Green Beans and Mushrooms with Garlic

Roasted Green Beans with Mushrooms and Garlic

I’m on a bit of a health kick lately, what with the New Years and all. 

So tonight, I whipped up these delicious roasted green beans with mushrooms. They’re a great go-to side dish. Super easy, totally healthy, and a little different than your traditional steamed green beans.


Creamy Coconut Lentil Soup

There is nothing sexy about lentil soup. I know that. You know that. We aren’t kidding ourselves here.

But I have to tell you, when I made this soup one blistery winter evening, Boy scarfed it down and went back for seconds before I even sat down.

And today, in the midst of one of Georgia’s hottest summers, we enjoyed some surprisingly delightful weather. So I decided to celebrate by whipping up this pot of goodness.


Mom’s Vegan Crock Pot Chili

Not to brag or anything, but my dad’s chili is pretty famous in Franklin, TN. It has won countless awards at the First United Methodist Church’s annual chili cook-off (an accomplishment that requires no further embellishing), and I recently took first place at my company’s chili cook-off with his recipe. Every time he cooks it, he makes a massive batch to share with family and friends. Everyone looks forward to chili season and seeing my daddy at their door.

I guess you can say I’m the daughter of a celebrity.


Big Pile of Roasted Vegetables

Aka, the best side dish ever.

Honestly, this isn’t much of a recipe. It’s really just a reminder that it’s always a good idea to throw a whole bunch of chopped vegetables together and roast them.
