Red Lentil Artichoke Stew

Things with Maizy have been rough. She spent last Friday in the ICU trying to get her IBD under control. She’s stable for now and home with us. Her spirits are pretty good, and she’s been resting a lot at home. It was an emotionally taxing weekend for all of us. During stressful times like these, it’s nice […]

Rosemary-Sage Butternut Squash Soup

Apparently Thanksgiving is hurdling towards us quite quickly! I, for one, woke up this morning shocked that we’re already practically to mid-November.

Oh man, was […]

Potato, Leek, Fennel Soup

After we bought a bunch of leeks and fennel at the vegetable stand last week, I’ve been trying to figure out different recipes to use either or both. The beet, fennel, pomegranate salad was one recipe. This potato, leek, fennel soup is another. I’ve generally had an aversion to using leeks because of how sandy they […]

Basil Kale & White Bean Soup

In the middle of summer, I’m always looking for ways to use the abundance of basil we grow in our garden. Summer salads with basil are great, as are pestos, but it’s been quite a cool summer overall. My sister arrived on Thursday from Baltimore, where it’s been hovering in the high 90’s and low […]
