Today was my day off and I had important things to do (read: finish up Broadchurch on Netflix). It’s also really damn cold, so I wanted something quick and easy that would warm me up. This soup definitely hit the mark.
What’s better than a nice, hot bowl of soup on a cold winter day? And what’s better than stuffing your face with chocolate when you’re 100% done with cold winter days? Fortunately, we here at Persephone have got you covered for both scenarios. In case you missed them, here are all of our soup of the […]
Here’s my recipe for Hearty Winter soup (named after this episode of Frasier). I use no-salt added or low sodium canned products to control the sodium content. I like making this soup because there’s not much preparation involved and I can smell it cooking while I watch TV or read a book. It’s good for […]
I get the pleasure of closing out the month of soups. I hope you’ve found some tasty treats to warm up your winter, and I hope you’ll like this one as well.
January is the long, long Monday of the soul. Everyone is sick, the days aren’t noticeably longer yet, we’re all buried under a few feet of snow, and temperatures are hovering around bone-chilling. On top of all that, I got four impacted wisdom teeth removed last week (the former homes of which have now turned […]
Bean soup and cornbread is one of my favorite winter meals. One, it’s easy peasy, especially when you use a crockpot. Two, one day’s cooking ends up being a week’s worth of meals. That’s a win/win, as far as I’m concerned.
This soup is a simplified version of the Shiitake Rice Soup they served at The Peaceful Dragon, a now closed vegetarian restaurant where I used to waitress in Charlotte, NC. The soup was a customer and an employee favorite, and I ate many bowls of it as both. It’s got a wonderful, rich, and savory […]
I like chicken and dumplings. My husband likes chicken and rice. What to do? Carb compromise! This is a versatile dish perfect for the pickiest of eaters (such as me and my husband) that’s warm and comforting. Cooking in my house is about guidelines, not rules, and if you don’t like it, don’t eat it. […]
Melkam Gena, everybody! Today Christmas is celebrated in Ethiopia, so this seemed like the right day to do a recipe on how to make Misr Wot (also written as Misir Wot or Misir Wat).
My grandmother and other elders have made corn soup for me, friends, and family for years. But, I never learned how to make it myself. As luck would have it, my grandmother called a week before Christmas to tell me she planned to make a batch of corn soup for the holiday for eating and […]
This recipe for lentil soup came to me in a bit of recipe-related serendipity.
This week I am trying something new. Instead of posting one of “my own” recipes (in quotation marks because I know I did not come up with them out of the blue, I’ve just been making them for so long that they are probably nothing like the original source material that I’ve forgotten by now […]
So we all know fall is pretty much here: It’s getting darker and colder at night, even if it’s still warm during the day. And with fall approaching and winter coming after that, it’s only natural to want eat something warm to help beat the cold outside. So from The French Women Don’t Get Fat […]
There are, at last count, four dictionaries sitting on my kitchen table. A Collins, an Oxford, an Aberdeen University Press edition and a Chambers. All for the sake of trying to find out exactly what a broth is, and in particular, a Scotch broth. The basic definition that they all just about agree on, is […]
I know “seitan” has a totally inoffensive pronunciation, but in my household, it is always pronounced “say-tan.” Yep, just like El Diablo himself. I’d expect myself to grow out of thinking that calling texturized wheat gluten the same name as the Dark Lord (wait is that Satan or Voldemort? Or both?), but given my “advanced” […]
