I would make a wretched vegetarian, but I’m cooking/preparing food for a client doing the Standard Process Cleanse this month. The general idea of this cleanse is consuming all vegetables (at least 1/2 consumed raw) and fresh fruits with a few allowances for small servings of psuedo-grains (lentils or quinoa only), scant amounts of healthy […]

Winter is here, and with it comes my favorite, soup season.  Second only to cooking with cognac season.  The best soups start with bones, so as  you bake those holiday hams, chickens, and turkeys – be planning your best soups yet!  Beans are another food group I didn’t consume until at least 25, so in […]

No picture sadly, but I’ve missed writing recipes.  I have a backlog of photos without recipes written down and recipes without photos.  At this point I find I’m killing myself with wasted time, trying to remember how I came up with that delicious dish 3 months ago.  So while it may not be pretty, the […]

With Soup Swap 2011 right around the corner, I’m back to blogging with my recipe for Cream of Mushroom Soup.  Mushroom Soup may well come in in more variations than any other soup outside of tortilla.  My recipe creates a thinner more broth than cream based soup packed with fresh mushrooms of many varieties.  While […]

A good pot roast has seen me through the worst of times.  In our family, in times of major life crisis, we turn to the purest form of love and comfort – a pot roast.  Somehow the stewed chuck roast and vegetables provide a warm hug to dry up your tears and help you find […]

Turkey Chili is new to my repertoire this year, but it has been extremely well received by both family and guests.  I like that this one serves equally well as leftovers both in taste and presentation.  Plus the bonus of it being a one pan, one dish meal. Chili, like tortilla soup, seems to be […]

Happy Holidays my dear readers!  I hope this season fills you with love and warmth and your kitchen feels like the happiest place in your home. This year has flown by me.  I know that’s trite and ridiculous,  and I’m showing my age but seriously.  That’s how it has felt.  It feels like it *should* […]

Fall is fleeting, and winter is closing in on us.  One of my favorite things about this part of the year is most people consider it acceptable – even gratifying – to eat soup at least once a week.  National Soup Swap Day will be somewhere towards the end of January.  I’ll be hosting one […]

French Onion Soup Recipe

French Onion Soup has always been one of my favorites.  It’s warm, comforting, and a perfect accompaniment for everything from Caesar salad to a giant Ribeye Steak.  Traditionally it’s served topped with a crouton then shredded Gruyere as shown in the picture.  I’m not a huge fan of soggy bread, but I love dipping so […]
