Last week

I made this yummy sweet potato and carrot soup for dinner last Monday – and ate it throughout the week. 4 servings when you live alone… it’s either eat it until you’re sick of it – or have a decent-sized freezer.

Cauliflower soup

Growing up, my mother had her share of stand-by recipes. We were (and to this day some of us still are) a family of picky eaters. Tomato soup, spaghetti and minced meat, home-made pizza, tacos, and cauliflower soup were all things that we’d all eat. Whenever I eat either of those things, I am transported… Continue reading Cauliflower soup

Broccoli & cheddar soup

So, again, the snow is falling outside. Snow. Snow. Snow. It means that it is a pretty good time for making this creamy, cheesy, warm  soup. Plus, there is broccoli in it – so despite the cheese, not totally unhealthy. I rummaged through some old bookmarks, and found this version from the Pioneer Woman. Her… Continue reading Broccoli & cheddar soup

I peeked at the comments, and I ended up substituting their spice mix for a similar to the one mentioned by larsen.kris at their site. I added the spices to the mix just before I added the… Continue reading Chili con carne soup

Carrot and cheddar soup

When I realized that the Olympics were coming, and I had freezer space, I decided to make some meals ahead of time. One of my favorites both to make and eat is this soup from BBCGoodFood.  Carrot and cheddar sounds like an odd combination, but it works perfectly. I made it exactly according to the recipe,… Continue reading Carrot and cheddar soup
