Soup! It’s what’s for dinner more days than not when the temperature begins to plummet and the busyness of October, November and December appear.

I tend to enjoy the same few over and over. [Read more…]
The calendar page swished over to September and zap! Warp speed running as we try to get back into the groove of a regular schedule. We have a looming cookbook deadline at the end of the month and that means craziness at our house with a capital C!

Just like clockwork every year, it happens. The temperature soars into three digits or at least it feels like the number is 3 digits and everyone begins counting the days until cooler weather. Dinner still needs to be prepared and this time of year, the easier the better. No one wants to heat up the oven and in turn heat up the kitchen.
