Southwestern Black Bean and Sweet Potato Soup

One flavor combination I just cannot get enough of is Southwestern flavors paired with sweet potato. That smoky, spiciness found in Southwestern cuisine with the subtle sweetness of the sweet potato is just to die for. I’ve made black bean and sweet potato enchiladas before, and it occurred to me to tweak my favorite enchilada soup a bit to bring the sweet potato enchiladas into a soup form. The results were fantastic, and I think I have a new favorite soup. My toddler really digs it too, so that’s a plus.

I can't get enough of the smokey, sweet, spiciness of this Southwestern sweet potato and black bean soup!

Cannoli Filled Crepes

One of my very fondest cooking memories was learning how to make house made cannoli at the little Italian restaurant I worked at in my hometown. To this day, cannoli is one of my very favorite desserts. It’s so light and sweet–the perfect way to end a meal in my opinion. I made crepes for my husband and our son the other day and it occurred to me that cannoli filling would be so unbelievably bomb-diggity inside crepes! And oh my gosh, my though was spot on. These crepes were just delicious!

Crepes filled with cannoli cream are the great for breakfast or dessert!

Tuscan White Bean Soup

One of my favorite things about colder temperatures is the advent of soup weather! Soups are high on my list of favorite meals to make–they’re so comforting, filling, and often extremely budget friendly. They’re an easy meal to make too, especially if you add some grilled bread or homemade rolls and a light salad.
