Thai Curry and Coconut Butternut Squash Soup

In Soups, Vegetables on November 6, 2009 at 8:23 pm


I have a bit of a problem. I don’t think it requires a twelve step intervention, but still, it complicates my life sometimes. I really can’t pass up a good sale at the supermarket. Laugh, giggle and find general amusement at my predicament all you like, but don’t judge me until you’ve walked a mile with my grocery cart and have 4 butternut and 6 acorn squash in your refrigerator … [read more]

Swiss Chard Artichoke Soup

I like to think of myself as an adventurous eater. I always look forward to delving into the local food scene when I’m away from home, whether it’s a couple hundred miles or a couple of continents away. I’ve eaten everything from bowls of black rice pudding in Bali to a bag of fried okra at a gas station in Louisiana … [read more]

The season for comfort food has started.  Just as comfort means different things to different people, comfort food is different for everyone.  For me, the thing that jumps to the top of my list is grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup … [read more]

Curried Pumpkin Cashew Soup with Cilantro Gremolata

In Soups, Vegetables on October 22, 2009 at 8:21 am


We spent the evening by the fireplace, cozying up, watching the rain, and listening to old songs. Dinner was by the fire place too – a silky pumpkin and cashew soup, scented with fennel and coriander and finished with a little fresh orange juice. This was a filling, warming, comforting meal; perfect for a dreary fall day … [read more]

Chicken Tortilla Soup

When I first moved to Chicago, I created my gmail account under “Whitney in Chicago” because it just felt like such a change for a Texan like me moving up to the cold Midwest. It was only logical that I would name my blog the same thing. Although I will forever remain a Texan at heart … [read more]

Tortellini Sausage Soup

I have a confession to make: I’m in the midst of a weather identity crisis. I’m a girl who grew up with 4 distinct seasons, who craves that change every couple of months. Well, now I live in a land where if it’s not too hot to go outside, it’s too rainy to go outside … [read more]

Early Fall Soup of Zucchini and Broccoli with Horseradish Crème Fraîche

Every year, without fail, there is a certain door in our house that becomes stuck. It’s only one door, and it’s not irrevocably jammed, only enough to make its presence known. And not for all that long, only a week or two tops, when the combination of heat and humidity comes together in such a way that either the floor heaves or the door swells – we’re not exactly sure which … [read more]

Summer Papaya and Halibut Soup

My freezer resembles a graveyard. Jagged bagfuls of chicken carcasses, veal bones, and prawn shells pile up and leave little room for ice cream sandwiches. These precious refuse are eventually transformed into wonderful stocks … [read more]

Chilled Yellow Tomato Soup with Savoura Mini-Cucumbers

In Soups, Vegetables on September 8, 2009 at 7:23 pm


Giant, yellow tomatoes are splitting their sides with juice in my little kitchen garden because I’ve been too busy to pick them. There is this little side project going on around here called “Moving House” and it’s taking up every ounce of energy and attention. It was with mixed excitement and trepidation that we placed our home on the market, but the real work is keeping the place presentable with two little monkeys tearing around all day long! … [read more]

roasted tomato soup

Homemade tomato soup is good, but roasted tomato soup is even better. With the abundance of tomatoes right now in the markets, this makes great use of all those tomatoes and may be the best tomato soup you will ever have … [read more]
