Did you know corned beef and cabbage did not originate in Ireland? Mind blown! This Irish-inspired dish actually originated in New York City’s Irish community after being introduced to Jewish lunch carts that offered Irish-Americans a cheaper alternative to their traditional pork and potatoes back home. Here’s another fun fact: the earliest corn chowder recipe originated from Boston in 1884! If you haven’t guessed already, today we’re sharing some of the most delicious soup recipes from around the world. Check out the recipes below!

When I first became a home owner, my dad flew out from Washington to visit and told me that I was missing a key ingredient; a grill. We took a trip to Lowe’s and picked out a Char-Broil TRU-Infrared Stainless 2-Burner Gas Grill. Twelve years later it has served our house extremely well, and through my experiences I’ve become a grill master. We have cooked everything from amberjack to filet mignon. Now that grilling season is about to heat up, I want to make sure you’re prepared too! We recently upgraded to a Char-Broil Commercial Series TRU-Infrared 4-Burner Gas Grill, and I am loving it! Read on for a tasty BBQ Asian ribs recipe.

Do you all love couscous? Traditional in North Africa, couscous is coarsely ground pasta made from semolina. It actually doesn’t have much flavor, but if you add some yummy extras, like tomatoes and bacon it will elevate the dish to another level. The whole wheat version, which I used in the recipe below packs 5-6 grams of fiber per serving too! So….let’s get onto that recipe!

A few years ago my husband and I were vacationing in Vegas, while there we had the opportunity to dine at Piero’s Italian Restaurant. The restaurant has seen the likes of celebrities from Michael Jordan to Justin Timberlake, and offers a 5 star dining experience. Our meal was perfection to say the least, including an unforgettable creamed corn recipe that Piero’s is known for.
During Thanksgiving at my dad’s this year, my step-moms corn casserole brought me right back to that moment at Piero’s. It was that good! When she shared how simple it was to make, I just had to recreate it for all of you. Viking sent me this beautiful stainless steel casserole pan and I couldn’t pass up making the corn casserole in this stunning pan!

The holidays are approaching with those elaborate family meals, which I personally can not wait for. But leading up to the big day, we tend to look for easy meal solutions to tide us over. A really great option that can save anyone time and energy in the kitchen is Michael Angelo’s frozen meals. Doesn’t it look delicious?
A big thanks to today’s sponsor Victoria Fine Foods. All opinions are my own.
Italian cuisine is a family staple in our home. Growing up, my mom made homemade pasta sauce – enough to freeze for additional recipes. My brother and I loved whenever it was pasta night – we knew it was going to be a good meal. Every Christmas holiday consists of an authentic Italian meal, like lasagna or baked ziti too. Giving us even more to be merrier about!
Although my mom did not pass along her homemade recipe to me, I’ve found an authentic alternative that tastes just as delicious! Victoria Fine Foods began in 1929 in Brooklyn, NY by an Italian family that immigrated to the U.S. When I learned the history of the company founders, I couldn’t help but wonder if they ever met any of my Sicilian relatives that grew up there.
For over 85 years, Victoria’s philosophy remains the same: ingredients come first. That’s why they are the only major brand to put their ingredients on the front of the label. Made of all natural ingredients, like 100% Italian tomatoes, 100% imported olive oil, and handpicked herbs, Victoria pasta sauce is as authentic as it comes. You’ll never find preservatives, tomato paste, water or sugar in their pasta sauces. They’re also gluten-free and non-GMO verified. [Read more…]

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Manwich. All opinions are 100% mine.
Growing up in the 80’s there was rarely a week where I did not have sloppy joes from the school cafeteria or at home. Sloppy Joes is definitely a favorite meal of mine.
Whenever I think of sloppy joes I think of the cafeteria lady in Billy Madison, and yes I like mine extra sloppy. 🙂
Now that I am a dad of two adorable boys I definitely have them eating Hunt’s Manwich. In fact we have started a little tradition here at the Hay House, and that is Manwich Monday. You’ve probably heard of Taco Tuesday, but let me tell you after a full day at the office, I tend to drag when I get home, and this meal is so quick and easy to make that Manwich Monday is becoming the norm.
