What is a more versatile meal than pizza? I’ll be honest, pizza is sort of my own personal version of heaven. You might as well know now, there will definitely be more pizza posts in the future. It is simply my favorite food. First you start with a delicious yeast dough, add a sauce such as marinara or Alfredo or go rogue and try something less conventional like salsa. Next comes the cheese. Oooooooooh, for the love of cheese. Whether melted into ooey gooey perfection or served up sliced with crackers, cheese is a highly regarded ingredient in the Hungry kitchen. It doesn’t stop there though, how about the toppings? The possibilities are endless! Continue Reading
At the Hungry Household, breakfast is our favorite meal. We love it so much that we often have breakfast foods for dinner and we call it “brinner.” Savory meats, tender scrambled eggs or ooey gooey sunny side up eggs, soft fluffy biscuits with fresh honey or apple butter, served up with fresh squeezed orange juice, oh my goodness, that is just one example of breakfast heaven! Over the years we have had fun exploring a variety of ways to make pancakes and waffles and will top them with any number of fruits. Or how about omelets brimming with vegetables and cheese? Mmm, mmm. MMM!!!! No doubt about it, breakfast is where it’s at! Continue Reading

I started making my own tomato soup and I’ve loved it ever since. It is my favorite food on a chilly day. Continue Reading
Ahhhhh, the temperature has dropped outside and the leaves have begun to glow with toasty warm autumn hues. It is almost time to tuck away summer clothes and pull all of those warm fuzzy sweaters and boots out of the back of the closet. This is my favorite time of year for camping and gathering with family and friends around a campfire that crackles and coaxes fun stories out of everyone. Do you know what else is perfect this time of year? A robust and spicy bowl of chili! Continue Reading
Are you in need of a tasty and pleasing recipe that make the kids ask for seconds? I’ve got one for you here! And of course after last Friday’s adventure, it involves grapes. I found out about the grape harvest too late to preserve them. I just didn’t have the time to put into learning how to preserve. Next year I will be on the lookout so that I can get prepared and make some grape jelly or jam. I look forward to it!
Soup is one of my favorite meals, mostly because it is so versatile and easy to prepare. It also freezes well which means if you make a double batch it can be separated into portion sized bowls and put in the freezer. This can help you get ahead on prepping for lunches each week. I call that a win!
Who isn’t always on the search for a great snack food? Something versatile that can be used for both meals and special occasions? One of my favorite solutions for this conundrum is hummus! Hummus isn’t just a great snack food it also works well as a spread in addition to being perfect for lunch boxes, parties, or special occasions such as birthday parties, baby showers, holidays, and so much more.
