Slow Cooker Monday, this week in FAIL

Cream of Leek and Potato soup I wanted to make something that could be made for meatless Monday or could be made Vegan. I decided to make Julia Child’s recipe. I made a few small changes. Instead of water I used homemade veggie stock, I used little potatoes instead of large russets and I did …

Slow Cookin’ Monday

One of the fun things about cooking is experimenting. The more comfortable you get in your kitchen, and with your kitchen tools, the more likely you are to get really creative. I’m fairly comfortable with my slow cooker.  So, I mess about sometimes. On December 1st I cooked another turkey.  We’re “tentatively” calling it December …

Olive Garden has this amazing soup. …

Red Tortilla Soup with Chicken

I love soups…love them…gobble them up. Soups freeze well, they taste better on day two or day three, I love soup. If it’s a Tex-Mex soup….even better. Tex-Mex is one of my true food loves. Maybe it’s because I’m from Texas, maybe it’s just because Tex-Mex is Awesomesauce. If you’re in the northern part of …

Freezer cooking on a small scale…

When I say freezer cooking…you say? Eek! No way! You’re a crazy lady! Okay, maybe not, but I’m sure you’re not giddy. Freezer cooking to some sounds like a whole day, 30 meal affair. It does not have to be….. Don’t be scared, it’s not so bad. Freezer cooking does not have to take up …

Meatless Monday: An altered soup recipe, for my love.

We had a lazy weekend.  I am recovering from a sinus infection and ear infection, so I am feeling a bit cruddy.  When I feel cruddy I usually want soup.  Soup or cake.  Cake….no 😦 soup.  It’s more filling and won’t cause a sugar high. I know, it’s summer…and I am posting soup recipes?  The …
