Miniature pumpkin whoopie pies filled with bourbon cream. Yum! This Halloween, go ahead and tell your kids you won’t be sneaking any of their chocolate. You have something better, and it’s for grown-ups only: mini pumpkin whoopie pie with bourbon cream. Because a touch of bourbon is definitely in order if the trick-or-treaters in your […]
This tender spice cake studded with apples and crystallized ginger is perfect on it’s own or layered with lemon yogurt, parfait-style. I really, really wish there was a way to transport smell over the internet because this apple gingerbread cake smells DIVINE. Standing over it and inhaling deeply is almost as good as actually eating […]
Nutty farro and crispy chicken thighs pair perfectly with sweet and spicy roast tomatoes. So good, the tomato-hater in your house might even ask for seconds! Are you ready to spice things up? For the next five days, I’ll be sharing some awesome new recipes that I created for the Tabasco 10 Ingredient Challenge. For […]
Now, you didn’t think I’d be able to make it through the party without making a soup recipe did you? Obviously, not. Seriously, sometimes I feel like I should start a second blog devoted entirely to soup, since I’m sure you all get sick of it sometimes. I can’t help it though!
This Red Pepper Bisque is surprisingly easy to make, featuring just a few simple ingredients, but it’s incredibly rich and satisfying. Asiago crisps and a hunk of crusty baguette make the perfect accompaniments.
Yeah, so remember how I said all I wanted to do was curl up on the couch with a blanket? Apparently it’s not because it’s fall… it’s because I’m sick! Ugh. I have a terrible cold – the worst one I’ve had in years. Three of the last four meals I’ve eaten have been soup. Luckily, I have a big pot of this roasted eggplant and lentil soup in the fridge, so all I have to do is heat it up (which is about all I have the energy for right now).
This soup is just want I need though. It’s rich, earthy, and slightly spicy, with a subtle Middle Eastern flavor from roasted eggplant, tomatoes, and ras el hanout. A dollop of coconut yogurt finishes it off and balances out the spiciness.
I feel like I’ve been posting an overabundance of desserts lately – that was definitely due to a very poorly planned editorial calendar for this month. I have a few more sweets planned for next week but I have some great savory recipes planned for early October. (And I promise, what I have in store for next week is definitely worth it!)
But for today, let’s eat soup. I took a quick facebook poll to see what people wanted me to post next and soup won by a landslide. I love that you all love soup as much as I do! This chicken tortilla soup is one of my new favorites. It’s rich, spicy, and super satisfying.
