Winter Squash Soup with Gruyere Croutons

Winter Squash Soup with Gruyere Croutons

Each year, my pal Kelly over at BarbaricGulp has an anti-Valentine’s day party. The idea is to bring something that would never show up at a romantic dinner – the more garlicky, spicey, date-ending the better. I always have trouble picking out dishes that are appropriately themed the bring, so this year I decided I […]

Daube Camargaise (Beef Stew with Olives)

Daube Camargaise (Beef Stew with Olives)

Since I’ve been spending a lot of time with this whole October 1976 Gourmet project, many things have struck me about the food magazine market in 1976 as compared to now: Back then, if you wanted to either find a recipe you read in an earlier issue that you no longer had, or if you […]

Vegetarian Corn Chowder

Vegetarian Corn Chowder

As you can imagine, the spirits of Cardinals fans are about sunny as the weather here in St. Louis – after two tough losses in the World Series, the mood here is decidedly glum. And the weather today seems to be taking it’s cues from the fans – overcast, cold and on the verge of […]

White Bean and Red Cabbage Soup

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a soup recipe here on the blog, but this semi-cold weather has made soup seem like a good idea. On Saturday I went to the farmers market looking for vegetables, but since it was cold and rainy I came home with potatoes, asparagus, and some ham hocks for […]

Creamless Tomato Soup #2

Sometimes I feel like I should change the name of this blog to “comfort foods that Jon likes” because honestly that seems to be the majority of dishes that I like to make. Aren’t I supposed to be experimenting with new and interesting foods instead of learning how to master dishes that I already love? […]

Chicken Rice Soup Recipe

I haven’t really left the house since Monday when we were supposed to have a three days of world ending ice and snow. I went out Monday morning after deciding that I’d better be safe than sorry and came back with four gallons of water and canned chili (which we could eat in the event […]

Poached Egg and Beef Bouillon Soup

Poached Egg and Beef Bouillon Soup

After a fun night out on the town with some friends, I woke up on Sunday morning to broken internet and a slight hangover that needed something tasty. As a side note, the sad thing about growing older is that I find that I tend to get hangovers even if I haven’t been drinking that […]

New Year's Black Eyed Pea Soup

New Year’s Black Eyed Pea Soup

After a long food and drink binge week in New York, I thought it would be good to do something light and healthy for dinner. Black eyed peas are a traditional new year’s good luck food, so I figured I’d make a simple bean soup. I love beans – they are both tasty and healthy. […]

French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup

I’ve been vetting a membership to Cooks Illustrated online (one of those dreaded trial memberships) which is why a lot of my recipes recently have been based on their stuff. This week’s soup dish is another cold weather favorite of mine and of Dr. Fiance. I love French Onion Soup, but quite frankly I hardly […]

The No Cream Creamy Tomato Bread Soup

The No Cream Creamy Tomato Bread Soup

Sunday night the lady and I were supposed to try out a new-to-us Vietnamese joint in Dutchtown, but then this whole winter thing happened. Here is what I’ve found when I ask people around here the question “Is this weather typical?” Or, “Is it always this hot/humid/wet/cold/frigid?” No matter which variation of this question I […]
