They are a must have in my pantry and the best part is that if…

Cauliflower and Chestnut Soup featuring Theresa Freund

I always love when I can find unique ingredients that have never before been featuring during Thirty Days of Food and today I have one of those: chestnuts!! I am not super familiar with chestnuts outside of that Christmas song we all love about them roasting on a fire, so I was excited to experiment and try something new. I paired them with cauliflower in a soup and melted some smoked gouda in at the end. Holy yum! Today Theresa…

Curry Roasted Carrot Soup

Fall is upon us and there is nothing that screams fall to me like soup! I honestly love soup, I could eat it three times a week and be happy. My husband isn’t much of a soup year-round type person, but lucky for us we live in the frozen tundra six months out of the year so we get to enjoy soup quite a bit!  This soup combines some of my favorite things: carrots, squash, and curry! It is the…

Zuppa Toscana Soup

I would love some traditional and authentic Italian food every night of the week if I could. But there’s something about Olive Garden that I can’t shake… Those breadsticks, the veggie filled salad with tangy dressing, and I can’t forget… the soups. Their Zuppa Toscana soup is to die for delicious.  A mixture of italian sausage, potatoes, bacon, and kale in a comforting creamy broth. Since I live more than 100 miles away from the nearest Olive Garden, I love being able…

Cream of Asparagus Soup with Ham featuring Carilynn Coombs

Nothing like the farming community to come out in full force when you need them. I’ve had an overwhelming response from dairy farmers this go around for Thirty Days of Food. While I probably single handedly keep most of them in business every time I go to the grocery store (we buy a lot of dairy products), I was having a really tough time coming up with some creative ideas to feature these awesome farmers who volunteer to share their…

Sweet Corn Chile Chowder

This weekend, our weather took a dip in temperature and suddenly it felt very much like fall. I tried to fight saying goodbye to summer, but eventually I gave in… It helped that I got my boots out which have been hibernating over the summer. As much as I love summer here on the prairie, I think I love fall even more. In my kitchen, fall means the beginnings of soup season!  We are literally up in ears with sweet corn right…

Wheat Berry Chili

Last month my husband and I traveled to one of our favorite states, aside from the one we live in of course, Montana! It’s no secret we love Montana, I mean we got married in Montana. Anyway, we haven’t been back there since we said “I DO” so we figured a trip was in order.  During the trip, we happened to stumble upon Wheat Montana Farms & Bakery. Actually, I think I smacked my husband and told him we MUST stop. I…

Knoephla Soup: A Germans From Russia Tradition

While many parts of the world have traditions based on things like grits or rice, this part of North Dakota – the Iron Curtain as we like to call it – was raised on dough. You could feed a family well on flour, water, salt, and a little leavening and the Germans from Russia recipes prove it. Dough and bread were an all purpose food that was used in soups, casseroles, breakfasts, desserts, made into noodles. You ask any good German…

Clam Chowder

** Don’t forget to enter the Thirty Days of Food Le Creuset Giveaway, it ends Thursday December 11th **  So I am going to be honest here… I am not a big clam fan. Or oysters. I love shrimp, fish, and lobster but something about those gooey little molluscs in the shell sort of makes me gag. HA! So for a long time, I avoided clam chowder. Until my uncle made some and I got brave and tried it. It wasn’t at…
