This tart sweet fresh cranberry galette is an easy alternative to a traditional pie. A little less waiting, great balance of fruit and crust, and ice cream's favorite fall friend. * Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

This tart sweet fresh cranberry galette is an easy alternative to a traditional pie. A little less waiting, great balance of fruit and crust, and ice cream’s favorite fall friend. This year has been very pie-centric for some reason. I don’t know if it was the move, living in a slower paced area, or what, but I’ve made more pies this year than the last 2 combined. And not just…

Soothe a sore throat with one of my favorite natural remedies, a ginger turmeric sore throat soother!  Early this year, I was introduced to cooking with fresh turmeric, and I now use it whenever possible in lieu of dry. Not only is it supposed to be super good for you and full of great anti-inflammatory curcuminoids, it tastes good. With seasonal colds starting to make the rounds in the Godfather’s office,…

A different take on romesco potatoes, my Romesco Potato Soup is creamy, comforting, and perfect for cool winter evenings! I keep my potatoes and onions in a teacup shaped wire basket on the counter. The garlic sits in the saucer section. It’s rather cute, until we have moments when I don’t realize I have three white potatoes sitting under a small mountain of onions and I buy three more potatoes, and then…

Tom Kha Gai Soup

Thai ginger lemongrass soup - Authentic Tom Kha Gai - A nourishing and healthy Thai soup recipe by GoodieGodmother.com

This month it was my turn to pick the ingredient for the Monthly Ingredient Challenge, and my choice was 100% based on this soup. I picked coconut, since the soup has coconut milk, and I knew it would be an easy ingredient to source for everyone; galangal and lemongrass aren’t always so simple. 😉 But this is the Godfather’s favorite Thai soup, his metric for all Thai restaurants we visit,…

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…

Southern comfort food at its finest - chicken and dumplings from scratch!

This post updated Oct 2015 as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project where I add pretty photos to pretty amazing recipes. 😉 Happy Veteran’s Day weekend! I’m not sure it’s necessarily something to celebrate, as the circumstances that make one a veteran are ugly, but it’s a good opportunity to say thank you to those who are brave enough to face the ugliness of combat so we can enjoy the…
