Beef Stew

Beef Stew

If I turn down the air conditioner temperature low enough and watch the Hallmark Channel Christmas in July movies then I can pretend it’s not 96 degrees outside.  To complete this clever ruse, I also make a winter supper of beef stew with dumplings.  As I have said multiple times recently, I don’t really care […]

Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup

I enjoy eating soup and I am also happy to have an excuse to get out these pumpkin soup bowls I purchased from Williams Sonoma a couple of years ago.  I love the time in September when fall starts to show up but we’re not quite ready for Halloween yet.  These bowls and tureen are perfect for that. Tonight I made […]

Fresh Herbs and a Hot/Cold Supper

Fresh Herbs and a Hot/Cold Supper

I planted an herb pot on my deck with fresh basil, oregano, and dill. I bought these at the grocery store so they probably aren’t very hardy for deck life but I will give it a try. Tonight I made our favorite bean soup which uses the oregano… …but since it is still so stinkin’ […]

Velvet Tomato Soup

Yesterday on the Savory Tomato Tart post my friend Phyllis asked if I had a recipe for cream of tomato soup.  Why yes I do.  First, though, I want to take a quick trip down memory lane.  Phyllis and I met in high school.  We also went to church together.  I did a little scouting […]

French Hillbilly Heater and Chicken Soup

After trying the Hillbilly Air Conditioner and not being particularly successful, I was a bit skeptical of this heater find on Pinterest.  I saw a video tutorial with some French artist living in the eaves of a gothic loft heating his studio with only three tea light candles per day.  Could that be possible? Just like […]

Cheesy Potato Soup

Cheesy Potato Soup

  Dinner tonight was Cheesy Potato Soup.  I turned it from a hamburger soup to a vegetarian soup and it was delicious.  Less grease and more taste.  I am curious to try that with some other hamburger recipes I have.  I think I will just leave out the hamburger and have a vegetarian recipe without […]

Sorta Sledding and Meatball Soup

The snow wasn’t exactly the best for sledding but it was fun to try anyway.  Davis spent some time outside today and I joined him with the dog. Most of his friends live in other neighborhoods.  He was a lone wolf today. We came inside for a friendly game of Risk.  Davis achieved world domination […]

White Chicken Chili

White Chicken Chili

My friend Gina has made this recipe several times for gatherings always to rave reviews and I have missed the boat so to speak each time and have never gotten to try her chili. Today, I suffer no more.  I made my own batch this afternoon. I can now join the loyal white chicken chili […]

Broccozini Soup

It is finally getting a little colder in Atlanta so soup was a good choice for tonight. I was Christmas shopping earlier and it got colder and colder each time I came out of a store. Then, disaster happened.  My car broke down.  Triple A came and carted the poor beast away. Anyway,here is the […]
