Crockpot Buffalo Chicken Soup

I cannot believe that this post is my one-hundredth blog post. It seems like yesterday I was writing my first, second and third posts earlier this spring. I think it’s incredibly impressive on how far I’ve come with my confidence in cooking, not to mention I’m a pretty good food blogger. I am extremely proud of myself.

Chicken + Soup + Buffalo sauce = A Buffalo fanatic’s
dream come true lol. 😀 But no seriously this soup is savory, creamy and cheesy, that I promise you will be immediately addicted to it when you finish your first bowl. Enjoy! 🙂

Parmesan Roasted Cauliflower

My effort to eating more vegetables is slowly improving, thanks to the magic of roasting veggies lol. I had fun roasting and eating cauliflower for the second time, and I’m happy to say that it’s my new favorite vegetable. Lol, I have to admit though that the parmesan cheese is like the cherry on top and made it even more delicious.
