Soup Dedication

To all my family, friends, and followers who still find themselves in the grip of winter – this recipe is for you!  If you have not had a good cauliflower soup, it might not be your go-to choice on a chilly day.  I admit the sound of it is a bit off-putting – however – I actually made it twice last week – I had forgotten what a great flavor, texture and warmth it offers.

So simple:  one head of cauliflower, a wedge of gorgonzola, a bit of heavy cream, chicken broth, salt and pepper to taste.




bring broth to a boil, add cauliflower and simmer until pieces soften and begin to break apart


add gorgonzola and salt and pepper to taste, and cream, whisk to desired consistency, and serve piping hot


– also offers a great excuse to dip a chunk of warm crusty bread –


A bit of chopped chives as garnish would have been lovely, but it was too cold to venture to the garden…..


PS:  Limoncello update

The simple syrup has been added to the lemon rind and vodka!

Bottling, tasting and serving suggestions coming soon.

Soup’s on

Yes, I know it was 73 degrees here today!  However, it is January and another cold snap is predicted later in the week.  So, a great time for soup.  Butternut squash soup not only provides a warm, tasty and nutritious meal, but is a feast for the eyes as well.

Peel and cube the squash.


Add one chopped onion.


Saute squash and onion for about 10 minutes.

Add 5 cups chicken or vegetable broth, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, 1 bay leaf, 1 teaspoon dried oregano and nutmeg to taste.


Simmer, uncovered for about 20 minutes.


Puree in food processor.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Garnish with croutons.
