Southwest Black Bean Soup

One of the nice things about my blog, is if I get stumped for something to make, I have most of my recipes here! My daughter was home sick yesterday so I stayed home with her and wanted to make a soup to bring for my lunches for the rest of the week. I’ve made…

I haven’t made these cookies in the longest time. I got the recipe from Celine at www.havecakewilltravel.com.

Southwest Egg Rolls + My filling lunch + pizza sticks!

The title is a little long, but I had a lot of good eats today! I ate the last of my carrot muffin I made the other day for breakfast. The other two I brought to work to give to a couple of my friends who are trying to watch their weight too. This was…
