The Best Mushroom Soup Evah!

Posted on Updated on

Mushroom SoupYesterday I went looking for a soup recipe.  I decided that I really wanted something with mushrooms.  I came across Chef Johnny’s Creamy Mushroom Soup.  There was this blurb:

“This is one of my favorite soups of all time. It is so easy. The secret to this deep, rich soup is a long slow caramelization, the key to unlocking the mushroom’s magic. This is just pure essence of mushroom.”

I thought that this sounds good and made it.  All I can say is that this is one of the best mushroom soups I have ever had.  Progresso and Campbell’s eat you heart out! Read the rest of this entry »

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with garlic

From Cooking Without Limits!

 

This is a wonderful recipe!  I have made this and this is the only way my husband will eat brussel sprouts.  The roasting seems to caramelize them taking away the sulphorous taste.  I do add rosemary to the this.  It has become a treat in our family.

Creamy Goats Cheese Tartlets

From Plated World!

 

I love finding recipes that are easy and fast.  The combination of goat cheese and tomato on a flaky pastry look absolutely fabulous.  And the ingredients are things that you can easily have on hand.  I always have goat cheese in the fridge.  And I keep puff pastry in the freezer.

Meatless Monday – Roasted Red Pepper and Red Lentil Soup

Posted on

From Good Mother Diet!

 

It’s going to be a little warmer today, but according to weather.com, we are going to start getting cooler tomorrow.  I have been browsing to find some soup recipes.  My husband loves soup.  I would eat it 3 times a day.  I know.  When he had charge of the menu, we did that.  LOL!

 

When we start getting cooler weather, I like to celebrate the new season with a soup meal.  So while looking for something different, I came across this recipe.  I love the flavor of roasted red pepper.  It makes any tasty dish a little more intense.

Tomato Basil Cream Sauce

Posted on

Tomato Basil Cream SauceSaturday was just one of those days.  Both Jim and I were rushed.  Jim finishing up work work that he didn’t finish during the week.  I having a meeting that I needed to be at.  Neither of us remembered to go shopping for the weekend.  Eek!   There is no way that I would let us starve.  So as Hercule Poirot use to say  “It is time to use the little gray cells!”  I have a perpetual pantry.  Items that I can take 3 or 4 of them to make a great entree.  I never have to worry about feeding us.  Read the rest of this entry »

Kitchen Sink Chickpea Salad

Posted on

From Sapid Cellar Door!

Did you know that the first day of fall was September 22nd?  Over the last week, you wouldn’t have known it here.  Summer was going on too long.  It was hot and sultry here.  Temps have been in the upper 80s.  Some days it got into the 90s.

As I sit here writing this, it’s raining.  With the rain have come the cool temperatures.  Fall has arrived to the Gulf Coast.

With that I have been thinking that it’s time to bring in the last of summer garden.  This soup recipe looks good for using some of that produce.  I love the name “kitchen sink” too!

Hot Sesame Garlic Noodles

Posted on

From Caro Crunch!

 

I have a confession to make.  I think that garlic makes almost everything taste better.  When a recipe says 2 cloves, I put in 4.  There is one caveat.  No garlic in ice cream or any dessert.  If you do have a recipe that garlic is an ingredient, please send it to me.  I would love to try it.

 

Garlic is also a great natural remedy.  Did you know that if you eat enough garlic on a regular basis, that your clotting time for your blood increases.  It can decrease your risk of stroke by 30%.  Garlic eaters have better cardiovascular health!

APRICOTS, THREE WAYS

Posted on

From Bewitching Kitchen!

 

I saved this post for apricots a while back.  Apricots are one of my very favorite fruits as a kid.  I think that I was the only one in my family who went nuts over them.  And they were one of the most expensive fruits out there.  Needless to say, my mom might by them once when they were in season.  They were a big treat for me.

 

I saw this post and saved it to have for the next time I see apricots for sale.  There is the recipe for a compote, sorbet, and ice cream.  Personally, I am going to make the compote.  There is nothing like warm compote over vanilla ice cream.   Mmm.

Zucchini Pound Cake

From Baked Northwest!

 

I don’t grow zucchini.  Jim doesn’t really care for it.  However, we do have some friends who are zucchini fiends.  They stir-fry it.  Can it.  Deep fry it.  And make zucchini bread.  When they get tired of the zucchini, we start getting little gifts of it.  The one way to get Jim to eat it is as a sweet.
