Growing up, my dad was the cook. He is amazing at mixing this and that, not measuring a thing, and having a beyond awesome dinner ready - usually in 30 minutes or less. My mom on the other hand, made the grilled cheese, macaroni-and-cheese with hot dogs, and hot dog potato boats. (Never had one?? First, I'm terribly sorry. Second, here is the recipe so go make one!) Funny thing is - my siblings and I always looked forward to those simple, "mom-made" meals. One of my favorites she would make is this Creamy Black Bean Chicken Soup. All you do is throw your ingredients in the crock pot, go to work/school/church, come home and voila - one of the easiestand tastiest soups I've found yet!
