Broccoli & cheddar, the ultimate merger of vegetable and coagulated milk solids. Just like everyone else in the Midwest (and everyone else in the U.S.), I’ve probably had a variation of this soup in every single chain restaurant (i.e. TGIFridays, Max & Erma’s, Chilis, Big Boy, etc). And the kicker is that I can’t think of … More Broccoli Cheddar Soup.
This isn’t a recipe. This is an “I have no clue how to use these stewed vegetable leftovers, let’s call it a soup base” thing. Here’s the backstory: Dad made a delicious braised pork shoulder with carrots and potatoes. Now while the carrots and potatoes were easy enough to fish out of the pot, the … More French Onion Soup.
Well, it’s the end of September, I’m officially in my late twenties, and I haven’t blogged since June. Many changes have come since then, the biggest of which is the news that I’m moving out the country in June 2016 to serve with the U.S. Peace Corps. So, that’s my excuse. If you’d like to … More Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
Monday morning I smirked in the mirror. I rolled my eyes as I covered a small love bite under my left collarbone with concealer. I was unprepared for the breakup Monday night. I didn’t think I’d be the one who was left. I knew this relationship wasn’t going the distance. If my google search, “I don’t think I’m attracted to my … More Grief and roasted cream of celery soup.
I’m leaving for Tennessee next week! Just six days after news broke that a nurse now diagnosed with Ebola flew into and out of Cleveland…yay. In all seriousness though, the chance of anyone picking up Ebola from the airport is slim to none, and Slim left town. Regardless of the health risk, my impending travel … More Roasted pepper and tomato soup.
I’m crediting this recipe to Twitter and day drinking. Both of which I recommend, as long as you do so responsibly and not while at work. Unless your profession requires Twitter, day drinking or a combination of the two. Vacation is a good thing. Either way this turned out a lot better than I anticipated, … More Southwest Chicken Rice Chowder.
November happened. I went to Tennessee and didn’t eat a single salad but I did eat a piece of Coca-Cola cake (chocolate cake w/ rich chocolate icing) as big as my hand. Seriously massive, right? It was a great trip. Nashville is a very fun city brimming with history. Of course it has a huge … More What’s up Doc? Carrot Soup.
Let’s talk about broth. Although I’m a fan of soup—see past posts for split pea soup, beef stew and chowder—I haven’t really mastered a good broth-based soup. But I think I’m on the right track. Brother-based soups are typically, though not universally, more healthful because they’re not laden with cream or butter, however, they have … More Ginger Shrimp Noodle Soup
This soup should start with bacon, but since it is Lent the pig must go. Any other time and…well, BACON. It is what I missed most when I was a vegetarian, although the veggie bacon I did eat wasn’t bad at all. Actually, it was a lot easier to make and way less messy. Moving … More Chow’dah time.
