I have a new favorite soup.  Since posting my cajun shrimp soup recipe in February we’ve had that soup almost a dozen times and I usually make way more than the recipe makes because we love it for leftovers too.  I’ve moved on though.  Seriously, this is now my favorite soup.  Good news, I don’t […]

Clean out the Fridge Vegetable Soup

This is my favorite soup.  It’s not really a big deal.  In fact it’s pretty simple, and every time I make it, it’s different.  I’ve even posted about it before using lentils and with pasta mixed in with very slightly different seasonings.

Today is just one of those days.  You know those ones when you have a reasonable sized list of to-do’s but mid afternoon you look at the list and realize that almost none of it has been done?  I don’t know where the day has gone, although I can’t complain too much, I have got […]

You know when things start to crash and burn and you think they can’t possibly get any worse?  It’s hard to focus on anything else or to get other things that need doing done.  And then all of a sudden things turn around, everything that went wrong gets fixed, progress is made and it feels […]

Even in the spring I crave soups and stews.  I love any kind of soup.  There’s something about it that’s so comforting and while I made this and finished it a few days ago I’m wishing I had more of this soup because today is a rainy and gray day – perfect for soup.  But […]
