Easy Peasy Summer Minestrone

soup

I love making soup in the summertime because it means I don’t have to do much. Aside from a little chippity-chop-chop of a few vegetables, the pot does all the work! This really works to my advantage, you see. This gives me more time to focus on which Ross and Rachel milestone we’re crossing. It […]

I know it’s 100 degrees out. I know it’s mid-June. I know the staple outfit these days is a bikini. I know most of you are firing up your grill tonight. I know. I still wanted soup for dinner. It’s my kitchen, I can soup if I want to. Yeah, that only sort of works, […]

Well, we wanted the heat. Mama N listened and we GOT THE HEAT. That didn’t slow us down though.

Tonight I’m going to an Italian cooking class and I am so so SO excited. It’s even located at my most favorite Italian restaurant in town. A friend of mine organized it and the guest list is tiny, so it’s going to be intimate and perfect. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to sob the […]

Last week I saw a post from my bestie, aka Flyer Foodie on her Facebook page of a most tantalizing black-eyed pea and sausage soup. I immediately lost my balance, went blind and started licking my computer screen when Aaron walked in, jaw dropped and holding a piece of paper with the Charter phone number […]

If there is one thing in life that is absolutely certain, it is that fish + wine + saffron + garlic + tomatoes = a love like none other. Remember the feeling you got when you stared for hours on end at Joey McIntyre on your New Kids On The Block poster? This is going […]

Healing Soba Noodle Soup

We’ve suffered through day two of the raging flu at my house. While subtle moans of what sound to be human agony resonate from the sofa, I’m constantly trying to keep the house decontaminated by hosing down the walls with sanitizer and attaching a tube from my husband’s mouth that leads out the back door.
