Hi everyone!! I hope you all have had a nice week! For those of you who are curious about how my argument on Monday went, Sarah and I successfully argued for the defense and won!!! High five!!!
So I know “The Best Black Beans Ever” is quite a cocky title, but seriously – this recipe makes THE BEST BLACK BEANS EVER!!! I have always loved black beans, in fact when I was younger I got made fun of for ordering black bean soup as an entrée at a Mexican restaurant. What can I say? They’re awesome!
I originally saw this recipe in my new favorite cookbook, It’s All Good, but I made a few changes. Mostly, I just reduced the amount of oil to bring down the overall fat content! Believe me, you don’t need a ton of fat to make these beans awesome – the trick is to cook them over low heat for at least fifteen minutes to get a deeper flavor.
Congratulations on surviving your first week to everyone who headed back to school and work this week! Getting back into the swing of things and adjusting to new schedules can be hard, but I have faith that we’ll all adapt! This week was super busy for me, mostly trying to figure out how to balance working full days on Monday and Wednesday with school work. I had planned on making something more elaborate for you guys, but instead I’m sharing what I like to call a “nothing in the fridge” easy weeknight meal.

Happy Friday everyone!! So.. something has happened… I finally gave into Goop. I’ve been reading about our friend Gwyneth’s diet for some time and I finally tried one of her recipes.
Even though I made my own alterations, the result was fan-freaking-tastic.
