Vegetable Broth

One of the staples in my pantry is good quality vegetable broth. Most of the time, I am too rushed to prepare my own, so I usually settle for Trader Joe's Vegetable Broth, which comes in a low sodium variety.Paying attention to the sodium content in any store bought broth or soup is very important, because almost all of them have way too much.As we move into the New Year, I thought I would post...

With so much going on during these days leading up to Christmas, it's easy to think that you're too busy to prepare a healthy meal. Wrong! Think Crock Pot :)This chili recipe, since it makes about nine hours to cook in the crock pot, might need to be made over the weekend, and then eaten during the week. However you do it, give this delicious recipe a try. I think you'll be surprised by the...

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...

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.
