At the end of what I hope was a fruitful and relaxing Saturday, you may be getting ready for a night out and not at all thinking about what you’re going to eat on, say, Wednesday night after a long day.  Good for you.  Keep at it. Come back here, though, when you get there. … Continue reading

I bought myself a birthday present. I bought this beauty of a braiser; it’s huge, it’s heavy, and it’s orange!  I had been wanting one for a really long time, and knew that I wanted it to be the second piece I would add to my life-long Le Creuset collection.  When I just happened to stop into the outlet … Continue reading

Cook: Gorgonzola + Potato Soup

I think it’s safe to say that it’s officially soup season.  It’s been soup season up here for a while, but I’ve even heard from my Texas friends that it’s finally getting cooler down there, which means I can share this soup, encourage you to make it, and not have to make any disclaimers about … Continue reading

Sweet Potato Soup with Crispy Bacon

Don’t be mad at me.  I’m writing about soup in July.  I know! But if we can, for a moment, focus on the health benefits of soup versus the hot, comforting, not at all seasonally appropriate nature of soup, you’ll see that soup actually can be enjoyed in the height of summer.  Particularly when you are … Continue reading

Valentine’s day is upon us and if you’re like me, you’re planning a nice, special meal at home.  (Well, if you’re really like me you’re in the process of packing up your kitchen and are planning a nice special meal at home in a couple of weeks…) I’ve never been one for reservations; I’d rather … Continue reading

Cook: Low-Fat Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli cheese soup is a classic.  It’s (mostly) universally liked, and why shouldn’t it be?  Most of the time it’s cheese soup with a little bit of broccoli.  Sign me up. That said, broccoli cheese soup is most of the time so loaded up with cheese and cream that it completely negates the healthy habit … Continue reading
