Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Wild Rice Soup

A bowl of Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Wild Rice Soup

I’m crushing hard on this Chicken, Sweet Potato, and Wild Rice Soup! It’s healthful; it’s hearty; it was born of a happy accident (and I’m a sucker for happy accidents).

Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter

Five-ingredient, naturally sweetened Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter is bringing its creamy decadence!

You know those foods you can eat with vigor for days on end? That’s Cinnamon Honey Almond Butter for me. It’s eat-by-the-spoonful delicious. And it scores bonus points for being a fairly healthful treat! The almonds lend it healthy plant-based fat, while the cinnamon and honey provide antioxidant goodness (especially when raw honey is used).

Zesty Greek-Inspired Salad with Crispy Chickpeas

Zesty Greek-Inspired Salad with Crispy Chickpeas

Health and happiness in a bowl: that’s this Zesty Greek-Inspired Salad with Crispy Chickpeas!

I adore salads: what a tasty way to get in your veggies! And Greek salad has become one of my major culinary crushes over the last few years. It’s such a flavor-saturated, satisfying dish! It’s also a beloved staple in diners here in the Metro-Detroit area (what we call “Coney” or “Coney Island” restaurants, based off of the iconic chili-topped hot dogs they serve).

It was about time I created a recipe that pays homage to this wonderful salad. Enter Zesty Greek-Inspired Salad with Crispy Chickpeas!

Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce

Every day is PB&J day with Dairy-Free Peanut Butter Ice Cream with Strawberry Sauce!

Ice cream is an especially tantalizing treat when summer is bringing the heat. And ice cream that is both dairy AND processed-sugar-free? Well, that’s doubly nice. Add the classic complementary flavor combo of peanut-butter-and-jelly, and you’ve REALLY got a winner on your hands!

Lemony Risotto with Peas

Spring means bright, fresh flavors – and that’s what this Lemony Risotto with Peas is bringing!

Lemony Risotto with Peas is also bringing creamy, cheesy comfort-food goodness – which, as I’m writing this during the time of the COVID-19 global pandemic, is something we very much need right now. Lemony Risotto with Peas is a hug in a bowl – and who couldn’t use a hug right now?

Roasted Garlic and Beet Hummus

Roasted Garlic and Beet Hummus 1

Hot on the heels of summer is this rosy-hued snack: Roasted Garlic and Beet Hummus!

How rad are you going to be when you enter the next soiree you’ve been invited to with hummus in hand that is a) homemade; b) bright magenta; and c) totally delish TIMES INFINITY? You’re going to be the coolest kid up in that joint!

Packed with a roasted beet, a whole head of roasted garlic, gobs of tahini, and of course – the star of the show – chickpeas (that mighty legume!), this Roasted Garlic and Beet Hummus is not just vibrantly hued: it’s also vibrantly flavored.

Homemade Hot Chocolate (Processed-Sugar Free!)

Homemade Hot Chocolate (Processed-Sugar Free!) 1

Today’s recipe is a simple-yet-mighty one: Homemade Hot Chocolate (that is processed-sugar free)!

This is the PERFECT time of year to enjoy a cup of steaming, creamy hot chocolate. I’ve been LOVING this Homemade Hot Chocolate recipe, which is comprised of just three simple ingredients: milk (specifically whole dairy milk, which lends its special creaminess – though you can certainly use an alternative milk), unsweetened raw cacao powder, and pure maple syrup. That’s it! No baddie processed sugar or refined powders glutted with chemical-laden ingredients in this hot chocolate!

OK, you know how mashed potatoes are just generally awesome? Well, these Garlicky Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes up the awesomeness ante by BUNCHES!

It’s that time of year that is known for upping the ante. The HOLIDAY SEASON is practically here, all! And I know for many of you out there, that means shopping, coordinating, rushing around, going bananas in the kitchen whipping up this dish and that dish for this potluck, that family event, this kiddo’s school shenanigans . . .. It’s enough to make a person want to curl up in a corner and cry “Bah-Humbug!” to it all.

At this busy time of year, we’re seeking shortcuts, we’re seeking allies, we’re seeking whatever kind of help we can get to maintain our sanity – including the help of easy recipes. Whether we need to cart a crowd-pleasing side dish to that umpteenth holiday potluck or are seeking a straight-up comfort-food to eat by the bowlful when we’ve had it with the hustle and bustle, these Garlicky Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes have our backs!

Spicy Turkey Chili

Spicy Turkey Chili 1

It’s high time we had a new chili recipe on A Cookable Feast, and today we do: Spicy Turkey Chili is in the house, people!

It’s Halloween as I post this, a spooky day, indeed! Chili has become associated with Halloween here in the U.S., and for good reason: it’s warming and hearty, making it the perfect pre-trick-or-treating meal for kids and their parents heading out into their oft-chilly neighborhoods.

Prosciutto, Pear, and Fontina Arugula Salad with Roasted Squash and Spicy Pecans

Prosciutto, Pear, and Fontina Arugula Salad with Spicy Toasted Pecans 1

Prosciutto, Pear, and Fontina Arugula Salad with Roasted Squash and Spicy Pecans is LIFE, people!

This is one of those recipes where I had to include pretty much every ingredient in the title because I liked them all so much. I’m OBSESSED with this salad with its chunks of ripe, juicy pear, savory acorn squash, salty prosciutto, creamy fontina, cayenne-kissed toasted pecans, and sweet maple vinaigrette dressing. And arugula! Arugula is my soulmate, true-love green. I’m enamored with its peppery, delicate fronds and how it seems to go well with everything.

This rich, flavorful, filling, very fall-ish salad was inspired by a dish that has lingered in my memory since I had it earlier this year at a Detroit restaurant called Dime Store (I did a post on my brunch visit to that establishment on my other blog, 100 Places in the D).
