Pork Hominy Soup with Cilantro

I’ve used Emeals.com in the past, but had forgotten about them until Pollinate Media reached out with a campaign. Lately I’d been falling behind on meal prep, and we ended up with whatever was in the fridge as I tried to finish up working. Grocery shopping became a nightmare when it took half a morning to plan the weeks food only to spend 2 hours shopping for it.

Working from home full time meant little time for this, but I missed cooking and preparing meals more often than I was getting to.

The Pioneer Woman - A Year Of Holidays Cookbook Giveaway!

You all know my undying adoration of The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. I met her last year at BlogHer and literally almost passed out. Ask Rebecca (another amazing cook), I think by the time Ree and her girls came through the door she might have been googling nearby hospitals to take me to.

Chicken Coconut Curry Soup

This warm, rich soup is such a perfect way to end a winter night. No worries about it tasting like coconut – the milk adds a much needed creaminess while the peppers add a kick of spice.

This was originally posted in Cooking Light years ago, but I’ve tweaked it to make it a lot simpler and quicker. Don’t leave out the lime – it’s the perfect bit of tang needed.

The Easiest Pumpkin Soup You Ever Did Eat

Kacia blogs at Coconut Robot, and also is one of the founders of the popular online Bible Study (that’s changed my life) She Reads Truth.


I’d like to present to you all: the easiest pumpkin soup you ever did eat.

And I’m also sneaking in an easy way to “cream” up your soup, without adding cream!


I’m a soup girl. I could eat it every evening when the temperature starts dipping into the 50s. My husband? Well, he likes it, but he usually has to reign me in to keep me from making soup every evening.


Besides just loving the hot-soup-in-my-belly feeling, soup is just so easy to make! And this pumpkin soup could quite possibly the easiest in my meal planning list.

Ready for it? Go grab these 4 things:

  1. 1 small can of pumpkin puree
  2. your “milk” of choice. I use coconut milk from Trader Joe’s, but use whatever you’d like!
  3. Curry.
  4. Salt.

10 Minute Korean Beef over Rice

10 Minute Korean Beef over Rice

Honestly – this could be the best dish we’ve ever had in this short of time. Last night I realized at like – 5pm that I’d gone grocery shopping but we didn’t really have a meal ready. I grabbed stuff for Korean beef and then found we had no soy sauce. Or sesame oil. I decided to change it up and bit and work with what we did have. My goodness. Sam told me as I added things to the beef, “Wow, that smells amazing.”

It’s spicy, but you can tone it down with less peppers or kick it up with more. Don’t leave out the green onions. We used a thick teriyaki sauce made with honey.

  • 1 pound lean ground beef (I used 92/8)
  • 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
  • 1 Tbs peanut oil (allergies? use sesame oil)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red peppers
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 Tbs toasted sesame seeds
  • 4-5 sliced green onions
