Butternut Squash Soup

October 9, 2017 by andrea | Comments Off on Butternut Squash Soup | Filed in Autumn, Soup/Stew, Thanksgiving, Winter

October here in Portland can be a mixed bag of weather changes. One day the sun is out and we’re blessed with Indian summer warmth. The next day may bring overcast skies and rain showers. Some days we even get to experience a potpourri of all that: sun, clouds, rain, fog. Yes, the weather here is fickle…some might […]

Posole (also spelled pozole; pronounced poh-SOH-lay) is a hearty, meaty Mexican soup or stew that includes hominy, although there are vegetarian versions out there, too. This recipe for Green Posole with Chicken is delicious, super easy to make and perfect for entertaining! The recipe calls for 1 cup of bottled green salsa but I used one 12-oz. jar of Trader Joe’s […]

Cauliflower and Cheddar Soup

January 12, 2013 by andrea | Comments Off on Cauliflower and Cheddar Soup | Filed in Quick Cooking, Recipes, Soup/Stew, Vegetable

Before you turn up your nose at a cauliflower recipe, this easy-to-make soup really is delicious. It’s similar in flavor to potato cheese soup but lighter in texture and not as rich. I love cauliflower but I didn’t pick up much cauliflower flavor…mostly the sharp cheddar. Is there anything more comforting than a hot bowl of […]

Heartland Turkey and Vegetable Chowder

I’m always on the search for new ways to use up leftover turkey, which is what led me to this delicious soup. It’s loaded with fresh veggies and herbs, and you can substitute different veggies depending on what you have on hand. For instance, I used green beans instead of zucchini. Serve with crusty bread […]

We spent last weekend at a friend’s house in Newport, Oregon. Since we were at the coast I thought it would be fun to make this delicious cioppino — a tomato-based fish stew that originated in San Francisco — for dinner. It was a perfect meal after a day spent walking along the beach and searching for hidden […]

If you like Thai curry then you’re probably going to love this super quick and easy-to-make dish: tender beef and fresh veggies simmered in a flavorful coconut-infused red curry…YUM!  I had a rib-eye in the freezer so I substituted it for the sirloin steak, and used light coconut milk. I also added some sliced mushrooms and onions […]

It’s officially Spring but it’s still a bit chilly here in the Pacific Northwest. In fact, we got a surprise couple inches of snow last night so school is on a two-hour late start this morning. While the kids are out playing in the fluffy white stuff, I’m thinking about what soup I’ll be making today. Here’s […]

Plus, it’s super easy to make and is great with grilled cheese or panini sandwiches. Yum! After the soup has simmered, puree it in batches in a blender. Blender Tip: If the soup is […]

Although it hasn’t been as rainy here in Portland as it normally is in the winter, it’s definitely still soup weather. I made this delicious ham and bean soup today and took it to a lunch gathering. I’m happy to say that there was hardly enough leftover for a photo. The recipe (from the fine folks […]
