Shrimp Creole

January 30, 2012

Here’s a healthy weeknight dish for you… My mom-in-law made it over the holidays and it was so easy and tasty that I nabbed the recipe and whipped it up for dinner as soon as we got home. It’s super easy and yields a good amount of food that reheats nicely (if you’re into leftovers…which […]


Simple Carrot-Ginger Soup

April 11, 2011

I can see!!! Sort of. If you haven’t been following along, I had a corrective eye surgery a week ago called PRK and my vision has been slightly impaired since then. Everything went well, but this particular procedure has a lengthy recovery time- so while it no longer feels like someone scratched my eyes out, […]


Kale and White Bean Soup

March 21, 2011

I wore a skirt this weekend and my legs saw the light of day for the first time since October. They were sort of glowing in a bad way. Spring officially arrived yesterday, and it totally felt like it until I emerged from my cavernous walk-up this morning to a day that feels more like […]


Homemade Marinara Sauce

March 10, 2011

I was a tourist the first time I visited Carmine’s, a popular Italian restaurant here in the city (that happens to be very popular with tourists). That was almost ten years ago, and I’ve been there countless times since then. Since everything is served family-style, I have many fond memories of gathering with friends and […]


Baked Potato Soup

March 1, 2011

It’s March! How did that happen? Yesterday we had to crack our apartment windows open because it was so warm and today I had to bundle up with a hat and scarf. What’s up with that? At least the lingering cold provides an excuse to eat more soup. This is a good one. If you […]

Red Lentil Soup

February 10, 2011

There’s a grocery store called Fairway Market out here that is tremendously popular. Until recently, I could not figure out why the place was always filled to the brim; the prices weren’t that great and the masses of pushy shoppers made the experience of choosing groceries an unpleasant one. What I did not know (for […]


Potato-Leek Soup

January 13, 2011

This leek and potato soup is hearty and healthy and takes very little time or effort to prepare. It’s also very inexpensive to make. I made a batch this morning and downed a few helpings before tromping through numerous snowbanks on the way to work.┬áIt was incredibly filling and I was actually a little toasty […]

Cauliflower Soup

January 5, 2011

I make this soup often. It’s simple, quick, and there’s a lot of room for variation. It only takes around 10 minutes to prepare. As a bonus, it’s super healthy. You can eat bowls and bowls of it and not feel guilty at all.


Butternut Squash Soup(s)

December 1, 2010

Soo…I made some more soup. I’m all about the soups this week. I knew that I wanted to make one with pureed butternut squash and since I couldn’t decide between two different recipes, I made them both. They are distinctly different and both are fairly easy to prepare. One is spicy and savory and the […]

White Bean Chili

November 30, 2010

All I feel like eating this week is soup. It’s warm and mostly free of flour, butter and sugar, all of which I’m trying to avoid until I start making holiday goodies next week… This recipe is hearty and comes together quickly (I also use a lot of shortcuts). I use chicken, but I think […]
