Puréed Vegetarian Mulligatawny Soup

Guys, I’m sick. I caught a beast of a cold earlier this week and I am one grumpy Sara. I’m achy, I’ve been sneezing, and if I’d known this was coming, I’d have purchased stock in tissues. I’ve been spending a lot of time in bed, but I’m awake now and before I head backContinue reading “Puréed Vegetarian Mulligatawny Soup”

Green Soup

If you’re anything like me, you tend to overindulge during the holiday season – we’re not even to New Year’s, yet – and then regret it later.  I know that after rich, decadent meals and equally sinful desserts, all I want is a Big Salad, à la Elaine Benes.  My body craves vegetables, leafy greens,Continue reading “Green Soup”

White Chicken Chili

This semester has been absolutely hectic and my absence from blogging has been weighing on me.  I apologize to those of you who follow and read my musings and recipes; hopefully this delightful and hearty soup will make up for my inability to keep more than a few plates spinning at the same time. We’veContinue reading “White Chicken Chili”

Chicken Laksa (Southeast Asian Chicken Noodle Soup)

Last weekend it was really rainy and overcast here in Omaha.  Yes, it’s June, but because of the weather, I was craving chicken noodle soup.  I didn’t want to do the expected noodle soup; I wanted to do something spicy, tangy, something that took me to another place when I ate it. To the internetContinue reading “Chicken Laksa (Southeast Asian Chicken Noodle Soup)”

Roasted Carrot Soup

The weather here in Omaha is on the fence.  It doesn’t know what it wants.  Sunny?  Overcast?  Chilly?  Rainy?  Make up your mind already and move on!  Yes, it is Spring, but my brain wants nonstop sunny weather.  Anyway, I woke up the other morning unsure of what to make for that night’s dinner.  IContinue reading “Roasted Carrot Soup”

Too Busy To Cook??

Yes…it’s true.  The past two weeks have been two of the busiest weeks so far this year.  School is really throwing down and it seems like just when I have it all under control, my classes knock me down again.  Oh, and I should mention our furnace died earlier this week and it’s winter inContinue reading “Too Busy To Cook??”

Hog #50 (Pork Chili)

Going to the market is one of my favorite things.  But so is not going to the market. I love looking in the fridge and pantry at dinner time and realizing that I have everything I need to make a dish.  Especially after the day I had yesterday. 6:45 a.m. came way too early yesterdayContinue reading “Hog #50 (Pork Chili)”

Asparagus Soup with Sausage (in photos)

Last night I whipped up a batch of one of my favorite spring and summer soups: asparagus soup!  It really is the quickest soup to make and it lends itself to interpretation.  This time, I added some red pepper flakes, coriander, and cumin.  I also added fresh parsley, cilantro, and some cutting celery we hadContinue reading “Asparagus Soup with Sausage (in photos)”

Battle of the Blog

Hello there.  Remember me?  I haven’t forgotten about you.  It’s just that I’ve started a new semester at school and, well, things are a bit busy for me.  I’m not making excuses…just stating the facts, ma’am.  Don’t worry, we’re still eating, still taking photos, and still making notes.  Consider it a stockpile if you will,Continue reading “Battle of the Blog”
