Simple Tomato Basil Soup

Soup is good for the body and the soul on cold wintery snow days when all you crave is comfort food. Canned tomatoes are one of my absolute favorite items to keep stocked in my pantry (especially for soups and stews) because they are super healthy and also convenient when making quick meals. This tomato […]

Beef and Noodle Soup

Anyone else feeling like they need a light meal? While the holidays aren’t quite over, today I was craving some veggies (something to balance out the cheese and desserts…). We had some leftover prime rib in the fridge and I knew that would add wonderful flavor to soup (any beef will do – pot roast, […]

Oh warmth, how I need you. Soups are just what the doctor ordered with all this snowy weather. This soup is so tasty and celebrates all kinds of fall flavors.

West African Chicken and Peanut Stew

Anyone who knows me well knows that I am obsessed with peanut butter. In fact, I’ve taught cooking classes that are completely centered around it. Most of us only think about using peanut butter in breakfast dishes and desserts, but I’m here to change your mind on that. The peanut butter and crushed peanuts in […]

Rainbow Veggie Italian Chicken Soup

Soup is one of my favorite things to make ahead because I like it better one or two days later. This soup is chock-full of delicious veggies and the ground chicken adds flavor and a satisfying bite. The magic of this soup comes from the Parmesan rind – while the soup simmers, that nutty, cheesy […]
