Alfredo Cauliflower

Have you tried Alfredo Sauce on cauliflower?  If you haven't, you really need to do so.   It is wonderful! The sauce is easily made while the cauliflower cooks.   Broken apart in pieces, or mashed, this could easily be a new comfort dish!

Cream of Broccoli and Mushroom Soup

Two of my oldest son's favorite soup!  He loves broccoli and mushrooms and soup made from both.  I combined the two this morning and he has all but devoured it!  Keeping the bellies full and bodies warm as the temperature drops here in Florida.  Stay safe and warm, my friends!

Crock Pot Pork and White Bean Stew

My hubby, before we were married, made this wonderful meal for me the first time we ate together.  Yes, he cooked for me first.  ~smile~  He cooked it as a casserole (in the oven) and Oh. My. Goodness!!! If I wasn't hooked already...I was then. This still brings warm memories and smiles to my heart each time I make it.

Microwave Chili Beans Succotash

My middle son, my oldest twin and self proclaimed vegetarian (although will eat chicken strips and an occasion cheese burger) loves spicy food.  Anything with beans, chilies and a bite is just fine with him.  He even eats onions like potato chips, honest!  This recipe was thrown together for him..a little on the mild side tonight after eating raw onions by the handful!  He must have approved as he gobbled up two bowls.  Made in the microwave, this was a one dish supper.  You can easily cook this on the stove, in the oven or a big pot in the crock pot.  My advice...at least double the recipe.  You will be glad you did.

Potatoes and Ham Soup

This brings back memories of my precious Mama cooking newly dug potatoes from the garden.  I would have to wash the dirt off and place them on dry grass to dry, turning them over to ensure even drying.  There is nothing better than fresh potatoes that have simmered on the stove, either with a cream sauce..Potatoes and Cream Sauce, or with a hunk of leftover ham.  Mama always put a lot of pepper in her potatoes and would sometimes but garden peas in with the cream sauce.   I started out not making this to write down and just added a little here and more there.  Adjust the recipe to suit.  Do you have a potato memory?  ~smile~

Alphabet Soup

One of my twins is home sick today with a horrible cough and low grade temperature.   Being sick has not bothered his appetite in the least.  He asked for my Microwave Pancakes for breakfast.  A couple hours later and he was asking for soup.  While he was eating his soup, he asked for a milkshake.  If the adage; starve a fever, feed a cold, holds true...he's got a cold!  ~smile~

Alphabet Soup

8 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup onion, finely diced
1/2 cup celery, finely diced
1/2 cup carrots, finely diced
3-5 cloves garlic, 1 Tablespoon minced
1 to 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, finely cut
1 to 1 1/2 cups alphabet pasta
1 teaspoon olive oil

In a heavy stockpot,  heat oil on medium.  Add onion when hot, stirring for 2 minutes.  Add celery and carrots.  Stirring for 2 minutes.  Add garlic, stirring for 1 minute.  Add chicken broth.  Simmer 10 minutes.  Add pasta, 1 1/2 cups makes a lot of pasta...you may want to use 1 cup if you want more broth.  Stir occasionally.  Simmer 6 to 8 minutes or until tripled in size.   Add rosemary last 5 minutes.   Serve with crackers or One Hour French Bread.  

Feel better sweetie! <3 and="" hugs="" nbsp="" p="">

Roasted Asparagus Soup

This soup was so delicious and easy to make.  I roasted two bundles of asparagus we ate one...okay a little more than one, and I made soup with the rest.  This was enough for hubby and I.  You will definitely want to  make more.  Love and HugS!

Chicken Noodle Soup

It's cooler, I want soup!  Hubby, one of the twins and I just love soup!  Homemade soup that is. Soup that is made with love and not from a machine.  Although they do come in handy every now and then when hubby cooks for the boys.  It's just too easy to make soup from scratch.  A little this, some of that.  What's left in the fridge, in the pot it goes and you made a new favorite!  This one, however, is an old classic.  Super easy and ready to eat in 30 minutes.  Enjoy!

Chicken Noodle Soup

2 chicken breast halves
12 cups chicken broth,  homemade or bought
1 1/2 cups celery, sliced
2 cup carrots, sliced, I cut up baby ones
1/2 cup onion, diced
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper, or to taste
1/2 to 1 teaspoon sea salt, to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground garlic
1 16 oz package thin egg noodles, make your own egg noodles
thyme, optional

Rinse chicken breast.  Put in large stock pot along with broth, celery, pepper, garlic, salt and onion. Bring to a boil and simmer, to low boil, 20 minutes. 
Take chicken breast out and cut into bite size pieces if done, not pink inside. Raise heat to boil broth. Add egg noodles (whole package makes a lot of noodles) , carrots and chicken pieces to pot.  Cook according to directions on egg noodle package.  
Sprinkle with thyme before serving if desired.

Cookin' Won't Wait...Time For Soup

I Love My Boys and I Love To Cook!  However, some days…sick days, I am not thrilled to be cookin’.  My Boys are barking and not acting sick at all.   ~exhales~   I am absolutely thrilled that they don’t act sick even when they are.  I, feeling sick as a dog…not certain where that came from but have always said it, would like nothing more than to go back to bed, watch cooking shows and read cookbooks all day! 


So, What am I doing?  You guessed it…in between the nebulizer and kleenex, I am Cookin’!  Seeing how I am the one that “feels” sick and HAS to cook.  It is my choice.  I want comfort food!   Food like My Precious Mama would make.  I made Potato Soup.  Hearty with skins and pieces of potatoes, dices of ham and celery in it.  Very peppery, buttery and creamy.  I am also cheatin’ and got a loaf of frozen bread out so I can bake it later to eat a huge piece covered in butter.  Hey, when you are sick…you get an off day of watching the diet.  My rules! 


Next time you are sick…drag out the soup pot and start cookin’…<3 and Hugs!






 Hearty Potato Soup



Ingredients 

1 1/2 lb potatoes
I used little buttery ones and left them whole with skins on.  Use whatever you have and cut smaller if you need to.
Water, or broth, to cover potatoes an inch or so.
1/2 stalk celery, diced
1/2 cup onion, diced, if you want.  I didn’t today..wasn’t in the onion chopping mood. :D
2 cups ham, diced
1-2 teaspoons salt, depending on your taste
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper…more or less depending on your taste
1/2 cup milk
1/8 – 1/4 cup flour…start with less and add more if needed. 
just enough water to mix flour with
1-2 Tablespoons butter or margarine

Directions

Bring potatoes and 1 teaspoon salt, to a boil and cook until tender.
Smash and mash in pot.
Add celery and ham.
Add enough water to flour to mix and get lumps out.
Add slowly to pot..boil at least 3 minutes to get the flour taste out.
Add milk.
Simmer and keep stirring to keep from sticking. 
Add more milk, broth or water if it gets too thick.
If you aren't going to simmer for awhile, add the celery with the potatoes


Note....I think I should have made more!  ;D
Next time I will double this.

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

My Precious Mama would make this soup during the cooler months.  Starting Fall we would look forward to this great, yet simple,  soup!  I would come home from school to smell of this simmering on the back burner of the stove.  Served with hot, right out of the oven, corn bread…Oh My!  Y’all enjoy this and think of your Mama…cooking away in the kitchen, while you make it.  <3 and Hugs!
