I’m not sure why I waited so long to get this soup up on the blog. I love one pot meals and this dish definitely fits into that category. It’s a staple at our house all through the cold weather season. Not that you need convincing, of course, but here’s why I can’t stop eating the stuff:…
Greek Inspired Peppers
I may not be a fan of cold weather, but if there’s one thing I can say in favor of the dog days of winter it’s that the comfort food is worth the chill. For me, soups, stews and nourishing whole grain dishes all rank up there with hugs and warm blankets. I simply love to bite into a warm hearty bowl of cold weather food. It’s the kind of goodness that thaws you from the inside out….
White Bean Chili
Can you believe that Thanksgiving is less than a week away? I love the holiday season but dang if it doesn’t feel like time speeds up with all the excitement going on. This year we’re hosting the big day which means we’ll have seven additional mouths to feed including this precious little one. Meet my new nephew Alden Jacob….
Ginger Scallion Soup
As I sat down with the intent to compose a post all about the glories of soup this morning (more on that in a minute), it came to my attention that I never formally introduced our new family member on the blog. He’s been glorified on facebook and I even dropped a shot or two of him on instagram and twitter, but the blog has been surprisingly baby free.
Hearty Lentils and Beans
First off, I want to give a heart felt thank you for all the incredible comments and emails that people sent with regards to Alex. The fact that you took the time to share your experiences, support and love really touched my heart. I was especially stirred by the tribute that my friend Julie from Willow Bird Baking did over at her site. If you haven’t had a chance to stop by and check it out, you should definitely do so. Her class of 7th graders is one amazing clan of kids. I had a hard time seeing clearly through all my blubbering and tears, but I know it involved teenage boys dressed in pink and a rainbow tribute from the entire class to Alex. THIS is why the internet is so incredibly amazing. People you’ve never even met can lift your spirit and make a difference in your life with the single touch of a button. Thank you so very much.
The Three Cheese “More Please!” Onion Tart
As I sit here sipping on a hot cup of coffee, cat purring lightly by my side, toddler still swimming in the pleasantry of dreams upstairs, I’m struck by the quiet stillness of the crisp morning slowly welcoming the sun on it’s horizon. This is my favorite time of the day. Just me and the sunrise. No diapers to change, no groceries to garner, no runny noses to wipe. With my feet up on the table and my computer strategically positioned across my lap, I click away at the keys and gaze out the windows of my warm, cozy family room to the wide open world beyond. Small thoughts flit through my mind. What do I need to get accomplished today? Will chicken or fish be on tonight’s dinner menu? Will the boys have a good day at school today? I slowly feel my body waking up as a first and then a second gulp of caffeine goodness permeates my being.
It’s the simple pleasures that have the most meaning after all. This tart is a compilation of simple pleasures for me. Caramelized onions meet cheese meet egg meet crust. One warming bite can put a smile across my face and ready me for whatever the day might bring.
