Pumpkin & Wild Rice Soup

I've been having trouble nailing down a spot for photos in our new-ish place. The windows in the studio room are both blocked by our front porch so we don't get much, if any, direct light in that room which has been both frustrating and also a refreshing challenge for me to try out other places of the house. Although most of the photos have been taken in our kit[...]

It's getting to be that time of year where all the produce is so fresh and abundant but it's also so nice out that it feels like a crime to spend all day in my kitchen.

All of these things are exactly what we neede[...]

This is the obligatory 'kick off the year with a healthy start' post. We just got back from Marco Island and going from 80 degrees and sunny to this 17 degree weather is really messing with my body.

Vegan Corn Cream Soup With Cornbread Croutons + National Chicken Month

Curried Carrot Soup With Maple Roasted Chickpeas

I'd like to start off by apologizing if this recipe looks faintly familiar. I may have made a super similar one over here but its been slightly updated for an even more delicious experience. I guess I could have omitted the chickpeas or swapped them out with croutons for more of a variety but, if we are being honest here, the maple chickpeas are what made this d[...]

French Onion Soup [Revisited]

Soup?! Really? But it's SPRING. Soup season is over. Or so I thought. This past rainy and chilly Saturday sparked my desire for one last soup for the season. My stepfather and Ma had dropped off a 10 pound bag of onions from Shriners earlier in the week week. TEN pounds. Do you know how many onions that is for two people? A lot. I racked my brain trying to think of[...]

Maple Sweet Potato Soup with All Spice Greek Yogurt

At the time, the idea of consuming a big bowl of hot soup after sitting on the be[...]

Leblebi // Chickpea Stew

The fascination with my Tangine has really morphed my cooking this past month. I didn't even use the tagine for this recipe but was drawn to it since the recipe is so similar to the other Tunisian dishes I've been playing around with. Who knew 2013 would be the year of preserved lemons, harissa paste, and spicy stews? Well, the first few months of 2013 at least. C[...]

Rosemary & Vegetable Soup with Rustic Bread

Well, I think I've finally accepted that winter is here and we won't be experiencing any more 70 degree days. Ah, this a very bittersweet realization.

On the other hand, this means six more months before lake adventures, cross[...]
