#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!!!

Squash Stuffed with Mushrooms, Brown Rice, Pecans, and Dried Figs

I had leftover figs from when I made cheese stuffed figs.  I did not know what to do with them, until I found this recipe that originally had dried cranberries in it.  But I think figs are much tasty than cranberries, so I changed it.

#Figlove: Cheese Stuffed Figs with Toasted Walnuts

October is #figlove month!!!  I am hosting this month.  In the past I participated in #peachlove, #tomatolove, #icecreamlove, #pastalove, #berrylove, #greenslove, #chocolatelove.

This month was #figlove.  I have never cooked with figs before and I can’t even remember if I have had figs before.  So I was a little concerned.  I did not want to make some large dish and then not like the figs.  Then I found this appetizer/side dish item.  With cheese and walnuts.  I love cheese and nuts, so I thought this would be a place to start with figs.
