  1. Spring: Roasted Asparagus Soup with Spring Herb Gremolata

    If you haven’t figured it out yet, I like soup. I like it a lot. My grandfather would argue that vegetarian soup is not really a meal, but I beg to differ. Perhaps I could convince him with a little sour cream. After all, it is the condiment of my people. Spring has been naughty Continue…


  2. Creamy Carrot Soup and Plans

    Life doesn’t always go according to plan. It’s a concept I’m still trying to come to terms with. You see, this morning while having brunch with one of my oldest friends, we talked about the Enneagram Test and came to the conclusion that I am a ‘one’–which I immediately thought was either really bad or Continue…

  3. Matzo Ball Soup + Homemade Chicken Stock

    One of my new–and most amazing–food/recipe discoveries this year has been homemade chicken stock. It’s head and shoulders above any chicken stock you can buy from the store, and the best part about it is that it is incredibly easy to make! You can certainly make chicken stock by boiling a whole chicken, but I’ve Continue…

  4. Poached Chicken Soup, December

    Gluttony might be one of the seven deadly sins, but on Thanksgiving day and the few days thereafter, we all seem to be forgiven (or at least try to forgive ourselves). As we gorge on every delicious indulgence, we tell ourselves that come Monday, we’ll hit the gym and lunch on salad to make up Continue…

  5. Part II: Summer Goodies Dinner: First Course

    I have been waiting patiently, very patiently, to tell you about this chilled watermelon soup that left me ooo’ing and ahh’ing. I know we started with dessert, but this (hopefully) will get you equally excited. Despite foggy, cold and quite frankly, icky, weather we’ve been having, I’ve been craving some serious summer produce. And nothing Continue…

  6. Reclaiming My Chorizo: Tomato, Cabbage and Chorizo Soup

    A trip to Portugal a few years back re-introduced me to a cured meat that I hardly thought much of before: chorizo. While in Lisbon, I sampled so many different kinds, paired with delicious sheep’s milk cheeses (both soft and hard). Naturally, the day before I was to return home, I stocked up on both Continue…

  7. I Won't Let Go of My Soup: Curried Carrot Soup with Truffle Oil

    Last week, I Tweeted about a satisfying lunch that sounded much fancier than the sum of its ingredients: curried carrot soup with truffle oil. As you might have guessed from the banner on this blog and if you took the time to read its About page, I am lifelong fan of carrots. But I have Continue…

  8. A Tomato Soup, With Chickpeas, Smoked Paprika and Rosemary

    There is something to be said for simplicity–and something to be said for turning a classic like tomato soup, and giving it a twist. Every once in a while I’ll see a recipe, or hear of one and think to myself: I must make this (case in point: current cover of my new Saveur Magazine–look Continue…

  9. A Spring Awakening in A Chicken Soup

    San Francisco is finally, finally seeing some warmer weather. We haven’t had the worst of winters, but I’m always happy to bid adieu to rains and chilly temperatures (even if they’ll come back every once in a while). Spring to me is an awakening. A lengthening of the days that extends into late evening glasses Continue…

  10. A Turkey Meatball Comfort Soup (and The National)

    Comfort comes in many forms. It is a warming cup of tea on a rainy Sunday morning. A tight hug at the end of a long day from someone you love. Your favorite neighborhood bar, where you know exactly how strong your drink will be made. A stuffed animal with a tattered tail and a Continue…

  11. A Spring Minestrone in the Dead of California Winter (Not)

    Those of you who live in California are probably pretty thrilled to be enjoying summer temperatures in what’s usually the dead of winter (which usually involves temperatures in the 40s and rain). Like you, I’ve been dusting off my open toed shoes, pulling out my summer skirts and dresses, drinking more white wine and cooking Continue…
