Thai Red Curry Chicken Soup

After the hurricane when we came down with colds, I had an impulse to make chicken soup. But being congested, I really wanted something I could taste. I always love Asian soups, and a little spice sounded like a great idea. And it was. But next time, I won’t wait to be sick to make … Continue reading »

Thanksgiving Side Dishes

Well, it’s been a challenging couple of weeks on the M&M front; first the hurricane and then my computer decided to die on me. Consequently, I feel like Thanksgiving has snuck up on me. I don’t think I will be making a full Thanksgiving meal this year, however I will do a Thanksgiving-inspired menu. I … Continue reading »

Roasted Tomato Soup & Grilled Cheese

We survived the hurricane without any damage beyond getting a little stir-crazy, so I have to feel pretty grateful. We didn’t lose power or have any terrible flooding, but all we could do for days was watch the damage on TV. Of course, one of my first plans of action was to get to work … Continue reading »

Asparagus, Ramp, and Leek Soup

It’s that time of year where everyone goes crazy over ramps. I tend to like them best in pastas and risottos or with eggs, but I decided to try them in this soup. It’s the perfect spring soup, which I like to leave a little chunky by using my immersion blender. If you can’t get … Continue reading »

Ochazuke is one of my favorite comfort foods and I’ve been craving it this week as I’m sick with a cold. A nice, light broth combined with salmon for protein and rice for substance makes it a perfect one bowl meal. I may be congested, but thankfully I can still taste this. It’s traditional pub … Continue reading »

Beet Soup

Last year we tried Urban Organics, who brought us a box of produce every week. I had no idea how many beets we would end up getting, and I kept trying to come up with new things to do with them (and the beet greens). It seemed there’s a dearth of good vegetables in winter, … Continue reading »

Moroccan Lamb Soup

After more than a week of eating healthy, this soup tasted so great with just a little ground lamb. I’ve started craving carbs, but not meat– until I started smelling this meat cooking. Because it had been a while, the soup was even more satisfying. I don’t cook a lot with all these spices, so … Continue reading »

Shrimp Bisque

While this soup is not necessarily Italian, I think it works very well with all the other flavors. You could substitute marsala or another sweet Italian dessert wine and it would be maybe a little more authentic, but I’m a big fan of the Sherry with the shrimp. I served this in little glasses because … Continue reading »

Pappa Al Pomodoro

  Pappa al pomodoro is an Italian tomato soup that uses up old bread to thicken it. I usually make it vegetarian, but you can add in some bacon or pancetta if you want something heartier. This was a special request for the blog a long time ago, I just haven’t made it in about … Continue reading »

Fall Butternut Squash Soup

It’s officially fall, although it may not feel like it yet. And that means apple picking and finding all sorts of ways to use the 30 pounds of apples we have in the fridge. I always go straight to butternut squash soup because it’s an easy and healthy soup and you can make it with … Continue reading »
