Butternut Squash Soup with Candied Pumpkin Seeds

We’ve had squash a plenty in our farmshare for the past several weeks. Now that it finally feels like fall, I’m excited to make some soups. Naturally the first place to go was to use some of the squash adorning my counter tops. I found Deb’s recipe for this yummy yet easy soup and couldn’t […]

Late Summer Gazpacho

I love me some ripe heirloom tomatoes. Just. so. good. I’m good with just slicing and eating them, but have been wanting to use them in other recipes, particularly in their raw form. Seems like a waste to cook a ripe heirloom! I’ve never been a huge fan of gazpacho, but when I saw this […]

Summer Corn & Zucchini Chowder

Summer corn is one of my favorite vegetables. I could just eat a whole dinner of 3 ears of corn, and maybe a plate of heirloom tomatoes. That is summer happiness right there. When I saw this recipe, I knew I needed to make it ASAP. Then, as fate would have it, I got 5 […]

New England Clam Chowder

It’s cold. Snow and ice are everywhere. We’ve had the fire blazing constantly and are always snuggled under blankets. It’s the kind of weather that makes me want to eat big bowls of soup. All. the. time. This chowder is hearty and delicious and surprisingly easy to throw together.  Serve it with lots of warm, crusty bread.  Or […]

Spicy Stuffed Pepper Soup

I’m drowning in ground beef.  That sounds really disgusting and terrible, sorry for the unappealing visual image.  But we have A LOT of ground beef in our freezer, like I’m talking 30-ish pounds.  We went halvsies on a half of a cow with our friends, and man, that’s a lot of meat. I’m trying to […]

Hearty Vegetable Soup with Farro

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, this has been the winter of soup in the Cheater Bites kitchen.  Could have something to do with the fact that it’s been snowing non-stop in Pittsburgh for 3 solid months… I recently made a big batch of vegetable broth, so I had lots of veggies in my fridge.  Then […]

Potato, Corn & Ham Chowder

It has been super cold and I’ve been hibernating.  I like to stay snuggled up on my sofa in comfy clothes and eating comfort food.  In an effort to stay away from carb-heavy foods, my comfort food craving has translated into lots of soups.  I needed to use up some things in my fridge and […]

Barbecue Chicken Gumbo

On my glorious days off with my little man, I often watch some daytime television…yes, I’ll admit it.  I love me some Kelly & Michael.  So sometimes, I just keep it on that channel throughout the morning and do my thing around the house, checking in every so often.  Right around Thanksgiving, I saw an […]

Southwest Turkey & Squash Chili

We recently visited friends and they made this delicious chili for us for dinner one night.  Matt and I loved every bite and couldn’t wait to make it ourselves.  It’s a pretty easy chili and perfect for a cold night.  This recipe makes enough for 6 large helpings, or just a lot of leftovers…and it’s […]

Roasted Carrot Soup

I’ve been on the hunt for healthy and wholesome recipes this fall.  During the colder months I constantly crave pasta, breads and carb-heavy meals, which isn’t so good for the waistline.  I’m making an attempt to do “clean eating” where I limit the amount of gluten and dairy I am using in my cooking.  I’d […]
