Roasty Toasty Carrot & Squash Soup

I don’t share soup recipes with you all that often, which—quite unfortunately—has been sending the wrong message, I think. Because in reality, there’s nothing I love more than soup on a cool autumn or winter day. I make some kind of soup or stew or one-pot/skillet meal at least twice a week. And truthfully, I […]

Mighty Minestrone Soup

With soup season at its peak, what better time than right now to set supper on simmer and warm up with a bowl of nutritious minestrone? You can find my favorite minestrone recipe over at The Balanced Platter—I’m a regular contributor. Of course, a soup like this simply wouldn’t be as tasty without a crunchy […]

Turkey & Winter Vegetable Chili

December 6th, 2011 at 2:02 pm · Post a comment · 2 Comments

I hope you’re not too turkeyed-out from Thanksgiving, because this chili really deserves a place on your cold weather menus. When the first cold snap sends me into my dresser to dig out my favorite bulky sweater and hand-knit scarves, I know that it’s time to pull out the old Dutch oven and get busy making soup. As the snowflakes […]

How to Make Chicken Broth

January 7th, 2011 at 2:02 pm · Post a comment · 11 Comments

Up until a few years ago, I had myself convinced that making homemade chicken broth was a laborious and time-consuming task fit only for professional chefs or diehard home cooks. Simmering and simmering and simmering some more, then straining and skimming and straining some more…the mere idea of homemade broth tired me out. But several years […]

Coconut Corn Chowder with Chicken

Corn Chowder

The concept of delayed gratification has always been a struggle for me. I’ve never completely grasped the adage, “Good things come to those who wait.” If I want something now, why can’t I have it now? Over the years I’ve tried to come to grips with the fact that, in life, you simply can’t always get […]

What I’m going to say in just a few sentences may upset some of you. But please keep reading. Because this story has a happy ending. Here it goes. For most of my life, I didn’t like tomatoes. For you die-hard tomato lovers out there, this may be tough to stomach. But let me explain. […]

Red Lentil-Vegetable Soup

June 11th, 2010 at 12:12 pm · Post a comment · 2 Comments

I told you last week that I was going to explore Deborah Madison’s Vegetable Soups this week. I suppose that’s only half true. I just couldn’t hold back from diving into both Madison’s cookbook as well as 5 Spices, 50 Dishes by Ruta Kahate. I ended up creating a recipe that merged elements from both books. […]

Two weekends ago my farmers’ market reopened for the spring and summer. After browsing the booths on a Saturday morning amidst the rain and wind, I made a pot of this warming soup for supper that evening with the parsnips and potatoes I picked up. For a flavorful garnish, I whipped up some pesto to […]
