Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Sorry tomato soup, but you’ve just been upgraded.

The combination of the sweet and smoky peppers and the slightly spicy fire roasted tomatoes is rich and full of flavor! I always wonder why I gravitate towards hot foods during the summer, but then I taste a bit of a soup like this and I know exactly why. 


Chocolate Strawberry Chip Ice Cream

Search any recipe on the internet and you’re bound to get bombarded with descriptors like “THE BEST ____ you’ll ever have” or “The World’s Greatest ____ recipe” or even “Perfect.”

I’m not one to follow clickbait trends, nor a gal known to lie; so when I say this is the best damn ice cream you’ll eat this year, believe me when I say I’m not exaggerating. The best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and when my boyfriend had a lick of this flavor bomb, he cried out, “This is the best ice cream I’ve had in my entire life.” He may or may not have had an expletive or two in there. 😉

Perfect Apple Crisp for Holiday Gatherings

In the fall, I have a bowl of apples lying around constantly, which is a little dangerous now that I have this recipe on hand. Apple crisp once a week? Check.

This recipe is simple, requiring just 1 bowl to prepare and simple ingredients you likely have right now. It’s perfect for fall and winter, and will make you so many friends if you bring it along to holiday gatherings or friendsgivings!
