Anyone who loves soup knows that there are thousands of versions of Minestrone. Loaded with flavor, it's a simple soup to prepare. 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.

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...

Moosewood Restaurant in New York. According to them, this hearty soup is usually made around the time that olives are harvested. I know I just wrote about Italy yesterday....One day, I hope I can make it there during the olive harvest. I heard recently that someone invented a machine that shakes the olives from their branches. That's not what I want to see. Instead, I want to go someplace where...
