Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup

January 25, 2018

We’ve had some cold weather so far this winter and I really don’t like it. When it gets below 32 degrees I like to stay inside, read, watch movies and make lots of soup. I typically make a double batch so my family gets some and a container goes into the freezer. It’s always good […]

Hearty Cabbage and Beef Soup

November 15, 2017

Many years ago my friend from college introduced me to cabbage borscht at a Jewish deli. I love beets but I am not a fan of  borscht soup. So when my friend told me I must get the cabbage borscht, I was a little hesitant. Her grandmother made the best cabbage borscht and the deli […]

Gluten Free Chicken Noodle Soup (Easy and Quick)

January 25, 2017

Whenever I hear that someone is sick, I immediately think I should make them chicken soup. That is what I have always eaten when not feeling well for as early as I can remember. So when I found out one of my neighbors had bronchitis, chicken soup it was. Today I was a little short on time. […]

There is a little chill in the air. This morning it was a sunny 52 degrees out. I love how it will still get in the 80’s during the day but cools way down by dinner time. This means low humidity and that it’s time to make a big pot of soup. It’s been a while […]

Easy Pasta Fagioli

March 26, 2015

Say this with me. Pasta Faaaaaa Zooooool. Easy, right? I just wanted to make sure you knew how to pronounce this dish. Every Italian family has their own version of this peasant dish. It traditionally is a hearty soup of pasta and beans but I make mine meaty and add some ham. Any type of leftover […]

I was a really odd child. I liked going to school and there were years where I did not miss a single day.  I loved getting the perfect attendance award in sixth grade.  That’s what you call a really nerdy twelve-year old, right? Considering we didn’t have cable TV, there were no reality TV shows, no cell phones […]

Raise your hand if you like making new year resolutions. I don’t think many hands are raised. My hands are right on my computer keyboard.  I think new year resolutions stink. And if you really want my opinion, I think having January 1st as the first day of the year is not as good idea. Who wants to start the […]

Ten Great Winter Soups!

January 8, 2014

Brrrrr, it’s freezing out side. How cold is it? Well… It’s so cold that I have been drinking my coffee on a stick. It’s so cold that I go in my fridge to warm up. It is so cold that the Botox people are not needed this week.  Just walk outside for a frozen wrinkle […]

Instant Mirepoix

November 6, 2013

The clocks were changed back the other night and it is dark and dreary at five o’clock. Somehow that caused a switch to go off  in my head (and stomach). I have been constantly dreaming about all the soups and stews I will be cooking and winter hasn’t even hit yet. In order to make […]

My size 6 jeans are getting very lonely. They feel neglected sitting in the drawer by themselves. They wonder why no one has  put them on. The reason is that they are very tight. So tight that they might cut off my butt circulation.  Is that even possible? In order to give these jeans the […]
