Forgive me for having two back to back tomato soup recipes. The snowy cold weather has been hanging around my neck of the woods, and any kind of tomato soup always seems to pull me out of the winter blues. I want SPRING :)Actually, I was also looking to use up my store of bulgur wheat that I purchased for my Lentil Chili recipe. Bulgur wheat is a whole grain. The kind I use from Bob's Red Mill...

I was visiting with a family the other day, and all the kids were home because school had been cancelled. When my friend asked them what they wanted for lunch, they asked for "red" soup. Interesting. I realized that, since the mom and dad don't like tomatoes, they must not use thatname with their kids. It brought a smile to my face. What kid doesn't like a bowl of tomato soup, served up with a...

This version is adapted from one found in Twelve Months of Monastery Soups by Brother Victor Latourrette. He and his brother monks live at Our Lady of the Resurrection Monastery in New York.

I knew I was going to be hungry when I returned from today's first session of my ten week Fitness Challenge at the Y. Although it was a bit disorganized, all 36 of us got our marching orders for the weeks to come. It's going to be fun :)

I wanted something different, and I came upon a recipe for Lentil Chili. Wow, two of my favorites, together for the first time :)

Making chili using lentils,...

If you're lucky enough to have a few days off this week, try this recipe out. I made it for some friends on Christmas Eve, and everyone loved it. Being the cautious type, and since I had never made this recipe before, I made the soup the day before. Given the complexity of flavors, I'd encourage you to do the same.

It's always fun to visit a new place. I really enjoyed my time in Mississippi, although I only saw a small portion of the state. One thing struck me during my brief time there, however and it involves food. Mississippi has the highest obesity rate in the country, with over 33% of the population considered obese.Those who read this blog on a regular basis know that where there's obesity, Type...

This recipe is one of the first I posted on my blog, and it quickly became a favorite. I'm making some changes to the look and feel of my site, so I'm re-posting some older recipes in a single format, rather than all the recipes together in a running list. It will make it much easier to find recipes and other posts in the future.So, why lentils? First off, they've become a great staple in my...

I was craving a bowl of chili, and remembered that I had all the ingredients waiting in my kitchen.Since the summer, I've been stocking my pantry with lots of canned goods, and I pick them up whenever they're on sale. Be sure to get no salt added items whenever possible.I also have an assortment of dried beans, but they take an...
