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 […]

This cauliflower flan is so good I think I might need […]
