I love beans. Like really love beans. And I am always looking for bean soups to try, but frequently they seem awfully similar to one another. So I was intrigued by this Mesa Grill Black Bean Soup that I saw over at Zen Kitchen. Made with red wine and loads of poblano chile peppers, it looks absolutely scrumptious.
These Apple Pie Bars by The Recipe Girl are just scrumptious. Take 2 things we already know I love–a crispy oat topping and cinamon laced apple filling–and add shortbread and the convenience of a bar. ‘Nuf said.
I am normally leery of oil-based cookie recipes. But anyone who knows me knows that if there is one thing I cannot resist it is trying yet another lauded, revered and generally worshipped chocolate chip cookie recipe. So when I saw the Deb Tucker’s Famous Chocolate Chunk Cookies posted by Velveeta Ain’t Food (and coming to us straight from her mother), I knew I would be adding them to my list of cookies to try.
I can think of few things that make me happier than eating fruit pies or crisps for breakfast. Thus I was quite excited to see Smitten Kitchen‘s Breakfast Apple Granola Crisp. Granted, I don’t know if a sleep deprived mother of a newborn is someone I should be taking caloric advice from, but she said it was breakfast food and I am going to make it for breakfast. Plus I figure it is better for me than a dessert crisp, with its greater quantity of sugar and cream instead of yogurt. And I have certainly been known to eat those in the morning.
