Well, the world has come a long way since my husband’s Great-grandmother was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 100 years ago (or thereabouts, I don’t now the exact date). In those days the only way to go gluten free was to simply stop eating breads, cookies, cakes, or anything that was made with wheat, barley, rye, […]

If you have been reading my blog a while you know that I love soup. I really just adore it and I don’t know why. It’s a vague term and can encompass anything from New England Clam Chowder to Consume, but there’s rarely been a soup I haven’t loved. This one is a nice addition […]
This soup was such a lovely surprise. I was looking for something low-fat that would contribute to a soup and sandwich lunch and I think I found something that’s a lot more.
Have I mentioned that I’ve developed a deathly fear of letting things go to waste? Well, recently my parents, before going out of town for a bit, gave me a bunch of random things from their fridge so that they wouldn’t (say it with me) go to waste. I felt compelled to do something with […]

Remember I mentioned that you could save the leftovers from the twice baked potatoes and make something delicious? Well, here it is.
So, by now you can probably tell that I’m a soup junkie. Except for gazpacho (which I think of as glorified salsa) I’ve never met a soup I didn’t like. They are warm and soothing, hearty and satisfying, generally pretty healthy, and easy to make ahead of time. Pop the pot onto the stove to […]
This soup is delicious but not what I would call “light”. The recipe reads pretty healthy until you hit the part where you’re putting in nearly 1/2 pound of cheese! But, it’s a great way to get kids started on veggies when their palates are telling them that anything bitter is a poison they need […]
