With only six ingredients needed, this crockpot cream of asparagus soup might be the easiest soup you’ll ever make. This has been a strange start to spring.

I love the marathon but I love being warm and cozy and not catching a cold more :).Even with this bizarre cold spring weather, I figured I could still start to embrace spring by making soup with spring veggies; enter: crockpot cream of asparagus soup.

I made corned beef and cabbage in the slow cooker (my first time eating corned beef in 18 years!), my Irish soda bread (and if you want the recipe for whole wheat Irish soda bread, I’ve got you),…

Thanks for supporting the brands that make TFD possible and, as always, opinions are my own!

Currently curled up in my comfy chair with a bulky sweater on and sipping on my lavender almondmilk latte as I write this post. Doesn’t get much cozier than this.I know I’ve written a few odes to tea on this blog because I’m an avid tea drinker but what you may not know about me is that I’m a sucker for a mid-afternoon latte. I really do love the taste of coffee. Even more so, I love the haunting aroma of coffee. But coffee hasn’t always loved me back. As someone with a sensitive stomach, coffee doesn’t always agree…
