The deep flavor of this soup belies how easy it is to make. Simply sauté onion and garlic, then add crushed tomato and chicken stock. Once the soup simmers for 30 minutes, it’s ready to eat. If you like your tomato soup rich and creamy, stir in a cup of heavy cream. That’s all the work required for a pot of the best homemade tomato soup you’ve ever tasted. Add some grilled cheese sandwiches and you’ve got the ultimate comfort food meal. Click here for the recipe.
You need only one mixing bowl to make this banana bread, so cleanup will be minimal. For a classic banana bread flavor, use melted butter. For a twist, or if you follow a dairy-free diet, use melted coconut oil. The faint taste of coconut enhances the banana flavor, making a mouthwatering bread that everyone loves.

The combination of chocolate chunks and chocolate chips makes these cookies extra special. If you want, mix up a batch or two, scoop the dough into balls and freeze. When a cookie craving strikes, preheat your oven and bake the dough from frozen. Click here for the recipe.
