Oooooo Lawdy, LAWDY what a holiday weekend. I counted my fingers and toes, and from what I can tell, they’re all there. How did you manage? Did you come out alive with all of your limbs as well? Nicely done, chap! (chap?) All right, so do you remember this chili? Well, while I am doing […]

17 Bean and Barley Soup

I think it can happen to anyone. I wouldn’t call it a BAD thing. I just think it’s common and we shouldn’t read too much into it. Or judge. To my face. I bought a bag of dried mixed beans soup thingy from Trader Joe’s. Uh huh, the one with the instructions printed on the […]

Cookbook Review and Mushroom Soup

Something really cool happened. Yes, I washed my hair, but that’s not what I’m talking about. Do you want to guess? Do you like guessing games? See, I do, but it seems like anytime I crave a good guessing game, everyone around me groans, rolls their eyes and would rather discuss oral hygiene. On turtles. […]

I would watch her in sheer amazement. “How is she that pretty?” I would ponder. “How can I get my hair to look that incredible while trussing a chicken?” I wondered. “Who is the contractor for her kitchen and can I get his number?” I would […]

Do you remember the moment in Twilight when Edward is showing Bella his glass bedroom for the first time? And they nervously exchange glances of brewing desire? Remember how DeBussy’s “Clair de lune” is playing softly in the background? Remember the slight brush against Bella’s arm before he led her into a gentle, sexy twirl? […]

Easy Peasy Summer Minestrone

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 […]

Smoked Cod Soup

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, […]

Spring Vegetable Soup

Well, we wanted the heat. Mama N listened and we GOT THE HEAT. That didn’t slow us down though. After a gratifying day of gardening, gutter cleaning, gutter fixing, hedge pruning, rose bush training and even buying a new bed (aka “saving my marriage”) it’s turned into one heck of a pleasant spring evening.
