Poblano Corn Chowder with Shrimp is a fantastic new soup that I’m happy to have in the dinner rotation. I love soups that simmer all day long or cook in the crock pot, making your house smell great. However, we are all busy people so I need soup recipes that cook in minutes rather than […]

Carrot Coconut Curry Soup might not be the recipe you were expecting to see the week of Christmas, but it might be the recipe you need. When life gets busy and crazy, I tend to make soup. Not just because it’s comforting and warm (hello, I just turned my AC back on today after what […]

Sorry that posting here at Idiot’s Kitchen has been a bit light lately. I have a couple of times in the orchestra season where my schedule gets completely crazy. This is one of those times. There’s not a lot of time for anything other than flute playing, driving to and fro, and in the case […]

You might remember that my friend Barb gave me this cookbook and I happily used up all the post-it tabs marking recipes. Like the first recipe I tried, Perfect Chickpea Salad and a recipe […]

Beef Stew with Brandy & Dijon is the dish I WISH I had made for Christmas dinner. Yes, this beef stew is better than prime rib. In fact, it blows prime rib away. I’m a big fan of stews and braises and slow cooked foods. It’s usually pretty simple to get some good ingredients together […]

My family has a tradition of having soup for Christmas Eve Dinner. Usually we have Kansas City Steak Soup (recipe from the Plaza III for those of you KC folks) but this year we celebrated early and in Florida. To change things up a bit (which I’m allowed to do since I’ll probably still make soup on […]

We’ve reached that critical time of the year….Crazed Schedule Season! Yes, you might call it fall or autumn where you live but since it’s still quite warm here, we’re going with CSS – Crazed Schedule Season. Everyone I know is insanely busy. That goes double for my friends who have kids. Some of us (especially […]
