Mmmm, butternut squash is so good in so many ways. One of my favorite is to roast large pieces and sprinkle with brown sugar, butter and cinnamon, but today we are going to go savory and soupy! This is a great recipe that I found on good old Foodnetwork.com which always has a great selection of good recipes.
My suggestion with this soup is to roast some extra butternut squash and set aside to munch on! It is as good as candy-especially with some brown sugar and cinnamon! Click here to Read More
I love soups for many of reasons- one, they are cheap, two, they are simple to prepare, three, they are usually jam packed full of nutrients, and fourth, they are loaded with flavor!
There are a lot of soups out there, so it is a matter of finding which ones click with you and saving them as your go to recipes.
This one is full of deep flavor and loaded with vegetables. If you are vegetarian go ahead and eliminate the chicken, and you still have a beautiful soup. Click here to Read More
I want to quickly follow up the last ham hock soup recipe with a similar option. Similar but different. This soup is a childhood memory and I have nostalgic feelings when I taste it now. I’ve always adored the flavor of pepper, even at a young age, so this one was a highlight for me whenever it graced the table.
This soup is clean. It’s simple. It’s few components allow one flavor to stand out and shine: pepper. The ham hocks used give a rich savory base, the broth is thick but not to the point it’s creamy, and the pepper is left alone to be the star. You might see where additions are easily made, carrots and other veggies for example, but I like to keep it true to the cleanliness of it all. Click here to Read More
**Pre-Note: I don’t want to keep calling my husband My Husband, it’s boring. He needs a good identifying name. When I think of his food personality, it has to do with health, fitness, and all things to support his avid body building hobby. The first thing that came to mind was The Bod. I can’t really think of another way to adequately describe him when it comes to this aspect of life –he has other talents too like his photographic memory and perfect recall– but I think this name will certainly get the idea across of what I have to feed and keep happy every day. **
Okay, Andrea should get all the credit for this one. She shared her recipe for Split Pea and Ham Soup with us a few weeks ago and it hasn’t left our minds since. I brought home a bowl to share with The Bod, and after inhaling the entire portion he went running back to her house to interrogate her on how she could make something so rich and addicting! He was so extraordinarily enthusiastic about this soup that I knew it had to be the first thing made with the leftover ham hock from our Easter Ham Roast. Click here to Read More
