Cranberry Sorbet

Cranberry Sorbet

For many people, myself included, the cranberry sauce element of Thanksgiving dinner is quite the afterthought. Judge away, but I happen to love the cranberry jelly right out of the can, still in the shape of the can. Although it doesn’t look like much, I’ve […]

Ham and Veggie Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette

Ham and Veggie Salad with Salsa Vinaigrette

This ham and veggie salad was quite the pleasant surprise. This is a don’t-judge-a-book-by-its-cover situation. It is not much to look at, but I can promise you it is worth a try. I love ham, but I really only considered it a holiday meat, or […]

Split Pea and Barley Soup

Split Pea and Barley Soup

Porcupines in a Skillet

Porcupines in a Skillet

This isn’t the fanciest or most beautiful meal you’ll ever make, but it might just be one of the easiest and cheapest. And not to be smart, but its pretty freaking good too.
