Minestrone Soup

Something special has been happening in our house recently. Max has been eating the same food we do (for the most part)!  It is so exciting to, A.) see him feed himself handfuls of cheese, cheerios, bread, pretty much anything you put in front of him. Not to mention his ability to take huge bites…

Butternut Squash Soup

A few weekends ago I went to a great brunch with great friends. On the table (which was a refurnished wood farm table. I’m not sure why I had to add that detail, but the host’s boyfriend refurbished it! I’m always impressed with crafty people.), we feasted on zucchini bread, a fritatta, fruit salad, corn bread,…

It’s called the ‘The Meat Lover’s Meatless Cookbook: Vegetarian Recipes Carnivores Will Devour‘ by Kim O’Donnel….

French Onion Soup

As the seasons transition from winter to spring, we’re met with some funny weather. The difference between the high and low temperatures each day are wide and it seems we get more rain. Over this past weekend it was drizzly, chilly and perfect for soup. In the coming months we may turn to gazpacho and…

Roasted Tomato Soup

“Baby, it’s cold outside…” but it’s the perfect temperature for a tomato soup and grilled cheese. I realize that the song is actually about a girl needing to go home so her parents don’t worry and the neighbors don’t raise an eyebrow, and the guy is trying to get her to stay, but I promise…
