Tomato & Bean Soup

This is a super easy soup. You don't even have to cook it, just heat it to serving temp. Crock pot on high for 2hrs works too. 

1 big container chicken broth
2 big cans diced tomatoes 
2 normal size cans green beans
4 normal size cans of great northern (white) beans (drained & rinsed)
4-6 basil leaves (chiffonade)
1 T. Garlic powder
2 tsp. Black pepper
Salt to taste

Put everything in the pot. Only the white beans are drained. I also rinse the white beans. Heat to serving temp. Serve with crusty bread like sourdough or French.

I'm Back & New Pots & Pans

Hey Everyone! After a substantial break from blogging I am back! I plan to start this blog back up full-time aka...once a week or more. I'll be posting recipes, Pinterest recipe reviews & how I changed things, product reviews, restaurant reviews & of course silly cooking stuff. 

Let me first let you in on a little gift I received at Christmas. I've never been into the hype of buying products from "tv chefs" or tv shows in general. I've always liked my Circulon pots & pans & stuff from the local restaurant supply store. But this gift came my direction & I LOVE it. They offer it in turquoise & in red. I am trying to make a few changes to my kitchen so turquoise it was. Yes I knew ahead of time what I was getting because my hubby is uber smart. Love it! The kitchen will be black & white with bright colored accents. I already have a bunch of red stuff so some turquoise made sense. Here is a link for you to check it out.
