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 • Read More »

I’ve seen recipes for chicken in a pot but had never tried it myself until last week.

This Chicken and Orzo Soup is easy-to-make, tasty, and a great recipe for whipping up a pot of something comforting without spending hours in the kitchen. Orzo, rice-shaped pasta, is available in most grocery stores. If you can’t find it, substitute another small-shaped pasta.

This delicious, Southwestern-inspired chowder is hearty, slightly smoky, and a little spicy…perfect for a chilly Autumn evening! I made a few changes to the recipe but nothing that drastically altered the final dish. Instead of a jalapeno chile, I used a little more chopped chipotle chile (which adds both heat and smoky flavor to the soup), a • Read More »
