Most of us are really busy these days. After a long day at work, we try and pick up a gift or two for under the Christmas tree, and then, exhausted, we think about dinner.Believing that we're too tired to make something, we stop and pick up some fast food, even though we know it's not the best for us. Don't do it! Instead, try this quick and simple recipe, which is not only easy, it's also...

My mom loves soup (that's her above), and I guess I picked up my year-round craving for all kinds of soup from her :) It's been quite awhile since I updated my Soup on Saturday page with links to all my soup recipes, but I took some time this morning to do just that.

I saw this recipe in a magazine while I was waiting for a doctor's appointment. I'm really glad I found it, because the final result after making it was a really good soup for a cold day.I altered the recipe a bit based on what I had on hand yesterday. I didn't have a piece of parmesan cheese rind, but I did have a pretty good size piece of parm, so I threw that it. I didn't have any small...

Yesterday was a beautiful day, and I'll admit that I was pretty lazy. I did get some things to Goodwill, and I was certainly happy about that :)Probably like you, I munched on leftovers for lunch, and then some friends invited me out to dinner. Their college-age sons where home, and it was good to spend time with them. A few friends of the boys joined us, and all of a sudden, it turned into a...

Thanksgiving is almost here. The calendar seems to be flying by, and some days I scratch my head and wonder what just happened.This is a very easy soup to prepare, and more than likely, you already have most the ingredientsaround your kitchen, especially as you prepare for the big day on Thursday.I enjoyed the simplicity of this soup, and I hope you will too. Adding smoked paprika adds an...

Well, the predictions were right. Snow, snow, snow. It's been coming down since early morning, and the worst of it is due in this afternoon.Luckily, I went to the store last night and stocked up. It's been awhile since I've made a lentil stew, and I thought this recipe might be a good choice. Now that the mint growing wildly in my garden will be dead and covered with snow in a few hours, I...

On that cold and rainy day in California last week, my mom was in the mood for soup. After searching through some magazines and cookbooks, I came across this recipe.Since mom had some tomato puree in her freezer, the remnant of a bumper crop, I wanted to whip up something that would highlight tomatoes. This did the trick, and I'm sure you're going to enjoy it.

The weather is starting to get colder, and today is a combo of cold and rain. Summer has left us too soon :(Today's soup is pretty simple, and if you're looking for something that is hardy and will warm you up, give it a try.I used a small bag of frozen cheese ravioli, and they were perfect.

Tomato and Bread Soup, but with all the wonderful tomatoes ripe for the eating, I thought I'd give you an even easier recipe, this one dating back centuries. Pure Tuscany. :)Right now, we're awaiting Hurricane Irene. The clouds are low and heavy outside my window, and its pretty breezy. The main part of the storm will come later tonight. So, my rationale for making this soup, which is more like...
