Cozy and creamy, you’d never guess this butternut squash soup recipe is dairy free and compliant with many clean eating dietary guidelines! No nuts or crazy ingredients, just a really good soup. Looking at the title for this post with all the dietary qualifiers, I feel like I don’t even sound like myself. Where is the baker Godmother, the cheese-loving Godmother, the Godmother that rivals Paula Deen and Ina Garten in her love of good-quality butter? She’s here. She just started making this soup several years ago by piecing together a few things in the fridge and never really stopped making…

Stay warm when it’s cold with nourishing food like this veggie packed winter kale beef soup recipe! * Recipe updated with new photos as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project. As I watched my daughter happily shove fistfuls of kale into her mouth, I couldn’t help but feel a mix of horror and delight.

Slow Cooker Chili

I have a confession to make darlings. I nearly got into an altercation, at the farmer’s market, over the crockpot. Not really, but it sounds more dramatic if I tell it that way. What actually happened was that the Godfather and I ventured out to the farmer’s market last Saturday to pick up some local produce. There was a poultry vendor at the market, and so we stopped by to…

Roasted Butternut Squash Pumpkin Saffron Soup

Happy first day of Fall darlings! After a warm weekend the Virginia weather is setting the stage for the change in season with just the slightest chill in the air, and I am “celebrating” with my first head cold in years. We are not amused in the slightest. Thankfully, the bug seems to be disappearing as quickly as it appeared, but I am limiting my kitchen time until I am better.…

Chicken Pesto Slow Cooker Soup

Delicious, healthy, comforting, and filling! This slow cooker chicken pesto soup is a hearty meal perfect for chilly weather!

This post updated October 2015 as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project. There are no old photos because apparently I was so embarrassed that I removed them previously and left the post without pictures.  Baby Girl entered our lives just under twelve weeks ago. Some things have changed dramatically, and other things have stayed the same, but the one thing that absolutely floors me is how quickly the time is passing. I saw…

Make Your Own Soup Stock

I will admit to rolling my eyes a little years ago at Ina Garten when she pulled out homemade stock for the recipes on her show. “Store bought is fine” was definitely my mantra and I couldn’t understand why someone would take the time to make something purchased so easily. That is, until I realized how much easier it was to make your own! It’s also less expensive, more flavorful,…

Weeknight Matzo Ball Soup

After a few beautiful “California winter” days, the weather just turned rainy and gray and cold and ick. Even with a vacation coming up and the intoxicating smells of challah bread coming from the kitchen, I couldn’t get over the funk I was in and I really wanted some comfort food. Had those days? Comfort food for me isn’t always about calorie-laden foods, but about smells and experiences that evoke…
