Lentil Soup with Lemon

Lentil Soup with Lemon

[Edit: See the actual, updated recipe here.] I want to like lentils. They’re inexpensive, healthy, and quicker to cook than any beans around because you don’t have to soak them. I don’t use them often in part because I don’t know what to put them […]

Green Pea Soup

Green Pea Soup

As I’ve been trying to pack up my house since we move in a couple of weeks, I’ve been trying not to buy any more food. I must use up everything in the fridge and freezer. It’s simply not worth the hassle of trying to […]

Smoky Black Bean Soup

Smoky Black Bean Soup

Today I was tired after lunch and needed to have a Diet Dr Pepper this afternoon. This reminds me that I haven’t told you about the black bean soup that I made with coffee that helped keep me wide-eyed and alert in the afternoons. I […]

Meals, meals, and more meals

Although I’m lumping these several recipes together in this post, I didn’t actually make them together. I just realized that I hadn’t blogged about any recipes since last weekend, and I want to get a couple more out there while I’m thinking about it. I […]

Mexican Chicken-Hominy Soup

Mexican Chicken-Hominy Soup

I made Mexican Chicken-Hominy Soup for dinner last night. It was pretty easy to make. You can see the specific ingredients at the link above, but the recipe included chicken (which I’d cooked earlier in the week), broth, onion, jalapeno, garlic, and hominy. I garnished […]

364: Minestrone

364: Minestrone

I decided to make Minestrone for Christmas Eve dinner. This recipe took a lot of chopping time, but it was mostly hands-off following that. I used bacon in place of pancetta, frying it pretty crisp. I sauteed all the vegetables in the bacon grease, to […]

337: Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

337: Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup

Southwestern Bean and Barley Soup was a part of a recipe section from Eating Well magazine on food gifts that you could make. Before I made the soup mix to give to other people, I had to try it myself. The soup mix was simple […]

299: Super Quick Minestrone

299: Super Quick Minestrone

I wanted soup to go with the rolls that I made, so I made Super Quick Minestrone. Although it says “super quick,” it still took about 50 minutes from start to finish. It’s definitely quick for minestrone, but it’s not particularly quick for dinner. I […]

273: Steak and Portobello Stew

273: Steak and Portobello Stew

I had portobello mushrooms that I needed to use, so I decided to make the recipe for Sirloin and Portobello Stew. In retrospect, this may not have been the best choice of recipes to make, since I’d just made a beef and mushroom soup the […]

271: Beef and Barley Stew with Mushrooms

271: Beef and Barley Stew with Mushrooms

When I’m sick, I really just want comfort food. I had bought some mushrooms, so I got it in mind that I wanted to make a stew with beef, mushrooms, and barley. This sounded filling and satisfying, and very homey and comforting. Since I’m still […]
