A Simple Carrot Soup Recipe

One I love, in part, because it's an example of how a beautiful meal can come together with a bit of care, and an impossibly short list of ingredients. Carrots and onion form the base, which is spiked with dollop of red curry paste, and then pureed into silky oblivion. Once pureed, you can flare it out with whatever you have on hand for the toppings. This is a soup we make often, and it was my special request after a tooth extraction this week. I'm short one wisdom tooth thanks to a brawny, bee-keeping oral surgeon, and I ate a lot of this soup in the days following. . - Carrots: You can use bushy-topped farmers' market carrots or regular orange carrots. . - To peel or not: Part of what I love about this soup is the silky texture, and there are a few things you can do to go from really good to exceptional.

It is also naturally gluten-free. Can I tell you one thing that makes me unreasonably happy on a day-to-day basis? Strangers smiling at me. Even better? Strangers waving, or nodding, or offering a pleasant hello, or even (my favorite) the ol’ one-finger-raise-on-the-steering wheel.

Broccoli & Cheddar Soup

When I hear the words “Broccoli & Cheddar Soup”, I think of lovely little broccoli florets swimming in a sea of creamy cheese soup. I don’t need much else in there. Sure, I like a little seasoning, some roux to thicken and a dash of colour when served, but I don’t need anything else. I hate to see peppers or potatoes, kale or other such foreign things. I don’t mean to be rude, if that’s your thing than, well, that’s your thing. Lately, in the Guilty Kitchen, there’s been a need for more simple fare.

Bacon makes everything better! I love BLT sandwiches, but when I have them they are BLTP sandwiches. BLTP stand for bacon, lettuce, tomato and PICKLES! My perfect BLTP is white bread (Bunny bread if you have it), thick and crispy black pepper bacon, fresh garden tomatoes, sliced dill pickles and Blue Plate mayonnaise! My mouth is watering as I type! In honor of BLT month, I thought I would share with you a delicious recipe, that that combines two of my favorites, BLT and soup into BLT SOUP! “I’m always inventing new recipes or improving on old ones,” says Sharon Richardson of Dallas, Texas.
