Japanese Ramen Noodle Soup. Broccoli Cheese Soup - What Megan's Making. I decided it was about time I actually cooked something for the blog, rather than the baking I tend to do a lot of.

Broccoli Cheese Soup - What Megan's Making

This couldn’t quite be classified as healthy (although I don’t think it’s too terribly bad for you…), but at least it’s an actual meal, as opposed to the cakes, cookies, and bread I’ve made recently. And it’s delicious. Broccoli cheese soup has intimidated me for awhile. I’ve always thought it either had to be difficult to make, or contain lots of cream and/or processed cheese cubes. This recipe (from MyKitchenCafe) contains neither, and was quite simple to make. You make melt the butter and mix it with flour, add in a few other simple ingredients – chicken stock, onions, milk, cheese, broccoli, and you’re done! Ingredients:1 can (14 oz) chicken broth 1 small onion, diced 1/3 c. flour 1/4 c. butter Pepper to taste (*1/2 tsp?) Basil, chicken & orzo soup. TGIF, friends.

Hope that you all have had a lovely week, and that a relaxing weekend lies ahead. I’m looking forward to some friend’s-birthday-celebrating, farmers-marketing, coffee-(friends)-dating, cake-baking, church-enjoying, and sleeping-inning here in my little corner of the world this weekend. OH, and the thing I’m perhaps most excited about — choir-directing. Did I mention on here that I’m leading an Easter choir at my church?! I’m kind of over the moon about it. Anyway, warm wishes coming your way for a good weekend ahead. Read more Ever since my friends and I met for a tapas happy hour at our neighborhood Spanish restaurant a few weeks ago, I’ve had sangria on my mind. So of course, when I found myself in the fruit section at the market this week trying to decide what kind of sangria to make for our weekly neighbor night, I immediately thought of sangria. …oh good grief, why had I never thought of this before? Sangria with All The Colors. The only reasonable solution, of course. ;)

A Cozy Kitchen » French Onion Soup and Pretty Nails!

On this episode of A Cozy Kitchen, I, Adrianna, will show all of you how I turned three onions (and a few other ingredients)… Into this cheesy, amazingness… All while painting my nails a pretty Christmas red. Yes! This French Onion Soup (by Julia Child) is super easy; it just takes a little bit of time…approximately, like, 3 hours or so, but most of it’s downtime. Which means you can do other stuff like paint your nails in front of the TV! And plus, I’m guessing you have holiday parties to go to and you want pretty nails.

Preparation Wash leeks in a bowl of cold water, agitating water, then lift out leeks and drain in a colander. Cook leeks, carrots, celery, garlic, and bay leaf in butter in a 4-quart heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes. Add cheese by handfuls, stirring constantly, and cook until cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes (do not boil).
