That looks great!

quart box of chicken broth?


Yes, Eleanor. The quart one. I forgot that they come in smaller sizes now.


Yummm. I just got an immersion blender (finally!) and the first thing I made was soup.

Do you listen to Splendid Table? I thought of you. You can stream in on NPR.org. This past weekend's show was on food in Hawaii.


Check out my scary breakfast incident:


Do you think this will work with with soy butter and rice milk ?

This is so well timed! I've been staring at a major over-purchase of broccoli and combing the web for the right soup recipe.

Then I came here looking for a meatloaf recipe..and behold...!

I love any creamy veggie soup, too. Now that Trader Joe's is here and I can get peeled, cubed butternut squash, I'm in heaven. It's a short distance from there to yummy soup.

I made this last night...it was yummy! The two year old actually ate broccoli. ;-)


This was dinner tonight, along with 9 grain bread. Here is the review:
Mom: Yummy, but not as green as in the picture. It did seem to be missing something, but I couldn't tell you what. One kid suggested it was missing ham. I am SO SURE that isn't it.
Dad: Mmm. It's actually good. I would enjoy having this again in the winter.
One kid would only taste it and said he didn't like it, another said she didn't like it but ate a few bites before proclaiming that she was full, two kids said it was good and ate it, one didn't say a word and a few bites, and another ate two big bowls and said he LOVED it.

Thanks for the recipe and the wonderful blog!

Cooking Gear To Spice Things Up

  • All-Clad cookware
    I use the stainless line. I love it because you can put it in the dishwasher. If you like to cook it is sooo worth it to have quality pots and pans. I recommend buying a set on sale and then filling in extras as you need them. (Watch for sales and specials.)
  • Cast Iron Skillet
    Please get rid of all your teflon-coated non-stick plans and get a cast iron skillet. I use mine for searing meat, poultry, and fish and then finishing off in the oven. In fact, get two cast iron skillets—one large enough to hold two ribeyes and a smaller, fried-egg-sized one for making...well...eggs.
  • Food Processor
    Quickly slice/shred veggies and cheese, make hummus or other spreads in a snap, and make pie crust without making a mess.
  • Global Knives
    I am partial to the 18 incher. Yep, I like big knives and I cannot lie. If you like to cook (or even if you don't) you deserve to have good knives. At least one.
  • Instant Hot Water Dispenser
    If you can't afford to have one built-in, this is a great alternative. It's nice to have boiling water at the push of a button to make tea, instant miso soup, or morning oatmeal for the kidlets.
  • Microplane Grater/Zester
    Use this to grate citrus zest, nutmeg, and cheese. You could get a coarser one, but you don't need to. I have one and I use it for everything.
  • Penzey's Spices
    A great resource for all your herb and spice needs.
  • Rice Cooker
    Every family should have one.
  • Silpat
    Silpat is a silicone mat used for baking. They come in various sizes. Items will not stick to it. It is a must for any home baker.
  • Stick or Immersion Blender
    It doesn't have to be fancy, but try and get the highest HP you can afford. I use my stick blender (+ attachments) for making salad dressing (weekly), pureeing soups, making babyfood, and whipping cream.
