Leek and Cauliflower Soup

Leek and Cauliflower Soup (4)

This soup is so light and flavorful. It's great as a starter, a snack, paired with a salad for a light lunch, etc. It freezes perfectly! I freeze mine in pint sizes mason jars for single sized portions that I can reheat quickly on the stove. We've has quite the week here at our house....I'll spare you the details but will tell you, we were all pretty under the weather (I actually think this is the first time in our 10 years that my husband has had a fever).  After a week like that I'm left with … [Read more...]

Portuguese Kale and Chorizo Soup Slow Cooker Recipe

So, the weather's finally turned freezing here in Chicago so it's time to get the kale out of the ground. I still feel like a really crazy new mother without a ton of time to cook or eat, so I've decided to make some soup. Amazing because I can dump everything a pot, and I can eat it one bite at a time as I have time :) This can be made on the stove top, but I decided to make it in the crock pot because I just don't have the time to watch a pot on the stove. The soup is great the day it's made … [Read more...]
