Easy Creamy Tomato Soup

Easy Creamy Tomato Soup

This was today’s lunch, at the request of The Clone (my youngest daughter). We still have lots of tomatoes coming in from the garden and we have a huge bowl of them on the table. We have sliced tomatoes or salsa with almost every meal and still, it seems like we’re not making a dent…

Fresh Turnip Greens Salad – COOKED

Fresh Turnip Greens Salad – COOKED

This is the second version of my Fresh Turnip Salad experiment. This time, instead of keeping the greens raw, I briefly cooked them by steaming them with just the moisture from washing them.

Curry Noodles

Curry Noodles

We had this as a quick weekday meal last week. Whether you have it over rice or noodles, it’s delicious in either case. I also realized, just before I started cooking, that I was out of coconut milk which is what I usually use when I make chicken curry. Even without the coconut milk, it…

Pasta Primavera

Pasta Primavera

There is nothing that says spring than fresh vegetables and what better way to welcome spring than a huge bowl of Pasta Primavera which simply means pasta with vegetables. From Essential Pasta Cookbook , this is what we had one night when The Clone was again begging for her favorite spaghetti. Since she was the…
