Cheesy Cauliflower Soup

I promised I would do something with all the strawberries we bought, but instead I’m writing about soup. It’s a GOOD soup though, one of the best I’ve ever had! I think the mustard and croutons really make it… but more on that in a second. Somehow this week […]

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

I never really found black bean soup appealing. It didn’t look good, it never really tasted good (unless it was topped with so much cheese and sour cream you couldn’t really tell what it was), and I never felt any kind of urge to make it until this recipe. […]

Indonesian Corn Chowder

Is this really Indonesian? I’m not sure. Is it good? YES. (And I’m just calling it Indonesian Corn Chowder because Healthy Hedonist did.) Before we get to the recipe though, I have a really important topic to discuss: Lunch. I am a total leftover person. I think I inherited […]

Chorizo black bean soup

The first time I ate chorizo, I was staying with a host family in a tiny town in Spain. Every night after work (and before they ate dinner at about 10:30 PM), they put out bread, manchego (and other similar cheeses) and chorizo. I instantly fell in love with […]

Southwestern Pinto and Roasted Vegetable Soup

When we moved into this house back in December, Mike bought a GIANT bag of pinto beans. Since I didn’t think I really liked pinto beans, I thought it would just be that thing that is still sitting there when it’s time to move out (whenever that may be), […]

Cucumber-yogurt Soup

Reading The Language of Baklava by Diana Abu-Jaber has made me crave Middle Eastern food in a way I never have before. It’s a memoir about growing up with an American mother and a Jordanian father (who loves to cook and eat), and I can’t read a chapter without […]

Onion Soup

I love French onion soup. Not the way I love tomato soup (for the nostalgia) or vegetable soup (because it’s healthy). French onion soup is just on a whole other level. There’s just one problem: beef broth. The handful of recipes I’ve tried have all called for it, and […]

Trinidad Corn Soup

I love how so many things in life just seem to work out. I have to admit, when I signed up for Adopt-A-Blogger #4 I was a little skeptical. After all, how do I qualify as a mentor? Yeah, I’ve been doing this for over a year, but I’d […]

Posole

A new development since we returned from Asia is Mike coming grocery shopping with me every week. I definitely don’t mind it, I just had to get used to walking every aisle no matter what was on the list, and random surprises ending up in the cart. Like a […]

Tomato Soup

As a kid tomato soup meant two things: Campbell’s and cheese nibblets. I don’t know how many cans of Campbell’s soup I ate growing up, but I’m guessing it’s in the thousands. Tomato was my favorite, followed closely by cream of asparagus and cream of celery. Cheese nibblets are […]
