Welfare Soup, Good for You AND Your Budget

This entry is part of a series, RdJ Marathon»

Many of us have changed our lifestyles in the continuing travails of the economic downturn. I know, the government says we’re recovering. Unemployment’s still high too. Oh, we’re buying more specialty foods, which is a good sign.

Some of us can’t afford those specialty foods, though. […]

Can You Spell Avgolemono? A Spicy Greek Soup…

This entry is part of a series, RdJ Marathon»

Greek food isn’t a popular cuisine in most of America. Oh, it’s got its fans, and they’re unwavering in singing praises for dishes from Greece and the Aegean area. Still, in many locations it’s very hard to find any Greek food, let alone stuff that’s […]

A Creamy Cheese Soup That's Good for You

This entry is part of a series, RdJ Marathon»

Until I got to graduate school, I detested broccoli. In any form. It was often bitter, and usually overcooked. Even butter or cheese sauce couldn’t hide the taste or the texture.

Recipe du Jour: Slow Cooked Chicken Rice Soup

This entry is part of a series, RdJ»

Everybody “knows” chicken noodle soup is good for you, especially when a tough ol’ winter cold has you by the sinuses. Chicken rice is about as good, in our experience. With soups and stews being classic cold-weather comfort food, why not combine the two? Boost your […]

Fish 4 Friday: Roasted Red Pepper and Crab Bisque

There are a lot of definitions attached to the word “bisque.” One that certainly doesn’t make any sense for this article is “unfired earthenware.” Sure, you could go get some slipware and paint it red, put little pink crabs all over it and get “red pepper and crab bisque” that way. It’s not good […]

Welcome to September! Too Bad It's Not Really Fall Yet...

September has snuck up on us, it seems. “Time sneaks up on you like a windshield on a bug,” John Lithgow once stated. Seems he was right, at least this once…

Of course, the start of September (or any other month) is a man-made delineation, and the seasons usually ignore such artificial markers and go […]
