Moroccan Meatball Soup

If you’ve been trying to be healthy for the new year, this could be a good recipe for you. It was satisfying but full of vegetables and not full of the foods we should eat in moderation. With a bit of couscous and meatballs, along with some tasty seasoning, this dish is easy and yet so tasty! We all liked it and it is perfect for a cold day or even a warm day since it doesn’t need the oven.

Italian Wedding Soup

Look at me, making a soup! It’s a rare occurrence, and trickier now that the Fudgelet is eating our food (he can’t feed himself soup yet, so I need the soup to contain finger foods). The Fudgelet loves spinach, ground meat/meatballs, and pasta, so I figured this would be a hit for him. It took some convincing since the pasta was a new shape and the egg strands made the spinach look and taste different, but eventually he liked it. K was an even bigger fan. He would prefer a different pasta than orzo, as would I…I need to find a store that has a better pasta selection. I can’t seem to find certain shapes, like pastina (what I really wanted to use) or ditalini.

Corn and Chicken Chowder

Are you feeling soupy? I posted a soup recipe Monday, and here is another one. Both are quite different, even though both represent complete meals (with a couple additions–this one did well with some fresh baked bread on the side). Sure, it’s not corn season anymore, but I think you could modify it and do it with frozen corn. The extra steps for the roasting/corn juice did not make the soup any better. Because of this, I will share what the original recipe said to do, but also tell you what I would do for next time.

Mulligatawny Soup

This is basically a vegetable soup with some awesome seasoning. The name makes me think of the groundhog in Pennsylvania. What about you?

Lentil and Carrot Soup

Originally I wrote about a pet peeve of mine involving names. But…I decided it was a bit grumpy, and this soup deserves a happy introductions. So, long story short…I received this from a magazine that I didn’t care to read. But, I happened to flip it open and find a recipe for lentil soup. Having never cooked with lentils, I was intrigued.

Chicken and Coconut Soup with Mushrooms

K has requested soup, but he never has ideas for what soup he wants. So, I had most of the ingredients for this soup, and I made a few additions based on what I thought would taste good. It came together really easily, especially because I had the chopping done ahead of time.

Tips-y Tuesdays: Another Idea for Short Ribs

Let’s say you’ve made my short rib recipe and are looking for something else to do with it. You know about having it as a taco salad. You have tried it just with rice or other dishes, but you were intrigued by the idea that I talked about having it with noodles. Well, I went and did it!
