Years ago I stored away the recipe for a beautiful parsnip soup. Creamy, smooth, and white as the driven snow… it was almost art. But when I made it, it had little flavor. Not so this Miso Winter Vegetable Soup! If you aren’t a miso initiate, you should find a nice recipe and give it a try (Miso Salmon Pasta … Continue reading
Looking for a nice cold remedy? Chicken soup is an oldie but a goodie! But how about shaking things up with a traditional Greek Egg Lemon Soup (Avgolemono). Even better embellished with dill and some healthy shredded spinach! My husband has been suffering from a bad cold for the past week. A fever of 102F. Sniffles. Even pink eye!
With winter moving on and my carrot supplies shrinking, it is time to focus on another neglected CSA vegetable—cabbage. Although red cabbage is clearly my “favorite child,” green is delicious too and today I am using it in Cabbage Roll Soup. Almost in time for World Cabbage Day! Did you eat cabbage rolls growing up? I remember my mother rolling … Continue reading
The winter of 2015 may forever be known as the season of soup. Yup… with two kids having impacted wisdom teeth surgery, the blender was my very, favorite, appliance! Of course in some ways the timing was handy—soup is always part of my Christmas Eve dinner! This year a Tomato Stilton Soup made its debut, along with an old friend, … Continue reading
It seems like just yesterday when I announced I wasn’t ready for fall. And now fall is preparing to move on–a burst of color and host of pumpkin recipes later. Thanks goodness for warming, fall-into-winter recipes like this Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup. I recently attended the harvest party that my CSA throws every year. It’s beautiful to walk along … Continue reading
Last Sunday, in honor of Father’s Day, I posted the some lessons I learned from my father. Today’s post will complete my list—and provide a recipe for baked French Onion Soup. Baked French Onion soup and I go way back—and it has a special tie to my father. During my senior year in high school, I had almost daily ballet … Continue reading
This mushroom soup is a remake of one I made on Christmas Eve, based on a recipe from Jamie Oliver. Of course, with the lovely flowers popping up revisiting Christmas does feel odd! I’d like to say I decided to make it again because I loved it so much. But in truth, I made it again since it disappeared before … Continue reading
We have a fall joke in our family. It dates back to when our oldest was around three and declared to her auntie, “Fall is the best time of my year.” Whenever we are really loving the season, someone spouts out the now familiar words. We are certain to hear them at the annual Rare Earth CSA End of Season … Continue reading
Sitting on your counter top, that is. What did you think I meant? Right now I am in the process of getting ready for a mini-vacation to New York City. In honor of this (okay really due to tomato overload) I have made Manhattan Clam Chowder, the other clam chowder, which actually did finish off all my ugly tomatoes.
Don’t you love all the great cooks on PBS? I was shopping recently and right in front of me stood two copies of a cookbook from the series Daisy Cooks! I couldn’t resist so now I have one copy of Daisy’s Holiday Cooking for me (just in case I need some Latin flair in my holiday cooking) and another for … Continue reading
