Spring Vegetable Soup

Baugher's. Initially a 60 acre farm, now Baugher's has morphed into a restaurant, market, and nursery. Because of all the chain stores and restaurants that have popped up in our area, this 100-year-old establishment is struggling.I was there to buy a pie, which are also famous in these parts, and ended up with a bunch of very ripe, on-the-vine tomatoes. Since my tomato plants are only just now...

There were slim pickings at the farmer's market today. Maybe I got there a bit late...Well, today's soup is just right for a light and easy meal, perfect for this long holiday weekend. You may not be able to get your ingredients at the farmer's market near you, but I found the zucchini in abundance at my local grocery store. I had the basil at home.My basil is doing great, and I've got it...

Spinach Soup

Although it wasn't the main ingredient, last Saturday's Lentil and Rhubarb Soupcalled for six cups of spinach. Today, it seemed like every vendor at my local farmer's market had plenty of this super-nutritious veggie, so I decided to pick up some more, but this time for a soup where it could stand alone.This is a very simple soup that shouts spring. I hope you'll give it a try.

I saw a version of this recipe the other day, and set off this morning for my first visit to the local farmer's market intending to pick up some key ingredients.Farmer's Markets are a great place to get local produce, and although the pickings were a bit slim today, I was able to get rhubarb and spinach. I've never been a big fan of rhubarb, probably because I never had it prepared properly. It...

I recently had the chance to visit the beautiful new home of one of my friends. After a tour, we sat down for bowls of this delicious and filling soup. Colleen took the basic recipe found on the bean and barley package and enhanced it by adding her own ingredients. The results were terrific, and we kept going back for more. I bet you'll do the same.

Well, Holy Saturday is upon us. Even though I've had to do quite a bit of running around this morning, the afternoon has been quiet and peaceful.I'm putting this soup together today, so that some friends and I can have it as a first course tomorrow. It might not fit into your plans for this weekend, but give it a try sometime soon. It's a nice spring soup, and I hope you enjoy it.

Last Saturday, I went to a Farmer's Market near my mother's house in California. Their planting season is several weeks ahead of us here on the East Coast, so it was great to see so many wonderful fruits and vegetables laid out on rows and rows of tables.Now that farmer's markets are slowly opening again after a long winter, please take advantage of them. It's great to be able to meet and speak...

Roasted Red Pepper Pita Pizza

This past weekend, I tried this recipe with some friends over to celebrate the Feast of St. Joseph. As I sometimes do, I made some changes to the original, and since the weather was nice (but cold), I decided to cook them on the grill.

They were fantastic, and, even though the rest of the food was good, they would have preferred if I just kept making this little pizzas.

Last night, I was asked to...

Lima Bean Soup

I'll be the first to admit I wasn't always a fan of lima beans. I guess it was something about the consistency, but who knows.Recently, my next door neighbor sent a container of this soup over and it was actually quite tasty. Here's a version I think you'll like. Somehow, it reminds me that spring is coming:)

Sweet Potato Soup

Growing up, I don't remember ever eating a sweet potato. I'm not sure why, but it was only recently that I started integrating them into my diet. Sweet Potatoes are a great source of nutrition. High in fiber, they are loaded with vitamins A and C, iron and calcium. I hope you'll give this soup a try, even if you've never had sweet potatoes before :)Don't be afraid of the peanut butter. It adds...
