Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

Vegetarian Tortilla Soup

We’re coming upon the season which is no longer referred to as soup season. As the temps warm, it’s harder and harder to for me, at least, to pour over a steaming hot bowl of something.  Mom, on the other hand…grandma, too, could eat the […]

Back in the kitchen, taking it slow.  I got the post-move ball rolling in the easiest way possible with this kettle corn recipe, and I’m building myself up towards a multi-layer cake extravaganza (maybe).  Until I get there, here we have the second easiest thing you could […]

Poached eggs over leftover Thanksgiving stuffing topped with a rich Béarnaise sauce Of all the Thanksgiving goods, stuffing is hands down my favorite. Mom’s is, in my opinion, the best. It doesn’t have a lot of hoopla- no meat or sausage, no cornbread, nothing with pizzazz- […]

Orange Almond Green Beans

Green beans sautéed in orange juice with marcona almonds and rosemary and topped with manchego crisps Dudes and dudettes. The election. We’re almost there. I’m scared to live in this country, whatever the outcome.  I mean, think about it. Moving on to happier thoughts like […]
