Fire-Roasted Tomato Vegetable Soup

SimpleVegSoup-1-4

You know those times when you have NO food in the house or at least so it seems. You just stand there staring in the pantry, opening and closing the refrigerator and freezer door waiting for something to jump out at you. And nothing really does, because you don’t have time to defrost the meat,…

Grilled Cheese with Pesto and Tomato

GrilledCheese-1-2+

Cheesey, buttery, white bread, grilled cheese. That’s how I remember eating them as a kid. Not exactly a health food, and they aren’t the easiest to light-up with the exception of reducing the amount of butter and cheese used and throwing in some veggies (or fruit) like this tomato! Although I love a good grilled…
