#SundaySupper: Spanish Garlic Soup

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back super around the family table in every home.  This week Susan at The Girl in the Little Red Kitchen is hosting and the theme is dishes that keep you warm.

I have a wonderful book called The Soup Bible.  When sunday supper decided on this theme I went straight for that book.  There is a section called winter warming soup!  Perfect!  I want to try all of them, but this one really stuck out to me.  It has a rather interesting process.  It is very simple.  However, it gets unique at the end.  You ladle the soup into single serving bowls and then crack an egg into it and put bread on top of that and bake it for a few minutes to poach the egg.  It’s brilliant and makes for a full meal.

Roasted Pumpkin and Coconut Soup

I love soup!!!  And I have never made anything with real pumpkin.  Therefore, last time I went to the farmer’s market I decided to buy one.  For some reason I was really nervous about cooking with a real pumpkin, but it was so easy!  Just like squash, except bigger.  I don’t know what else I am going to make with pumpkin.  But, I definitely am going to use it more this fall!

#SundaySupper: Chicken Chowder

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is comfort food.

Whenever I think of comfort food I always think of soup.  Soup always makes things better.  If I have a cold or if I am homesick I want soup.  Soup always makes me feel better; always warms my soul.  I use to have to go out for soup.  But I am working on it.  I have been collecting soup recipes and slowly but surely attempting to make them.  Some times they are horrible, but lately I have been making some really delicious soup!!!

Sweet and Spicy Mushroom Stir Fry

 

I love this so much!  It has so much flavor.  I have never made mushrooms that taste so good. And you have to have rice or something to soak up all of the wonderful sauce.  It takes a little while to make.  But it isn’t hard, just a little time consuming.

Gorgonzola and Porcini Mushroom Risotto

This was fantastic!!  My friend Leslie, who I cook with all the time, has been wanting to make risotto.  It takes a bit of time so we wanted to make sure we had a lot of time to make it.  I plan to make this again soon!  Or another type of risotto, I mean it was amazing!!

Slow-Roasted Turkey Breast

This was our Easter table, there is so much food!!  It was delicious!  Today I am going to talk about our favorite turkey recipe.  Before cooking turkey this way, I never really like turkey, especially white meat.  I thought it was dry and bland.  This turkey is none of those things!!  It is absolutely delicious!

Irish Carrot Potato Soup


Last but not least the soup!  This soup is pureed, so there are zero chunks of anything.  My friend, Leslie, has been to Ireland and is partially Irish.  She told me this is how it is done in Ireland.  Pureed soup.  Works for me.
