Onion Soup

I’m pretty sure onions are at the heart of every recipe I make.  My standard is a sweet onion, but if I’m making a recipe that doesn’t use just the regular onions then I’m usually using leeks, green onions, shallots or chives. This recipe is fantastic because I used every version of onion I could get my grubby little hands ... Read More »

Recado Rojo Jalfrezi aka Mexican Jalfrezi with Refried Bean Pakoras

I’ve got so much to share in this post! Let’s start at the beginning.  I was contacted a few weeks ago by Johar’s Original Bollywood Chutneys asking me if I’d like to review their Hot Cilantro Chutney (maybe from reading my blog they noticed my love of spice and ethnic cuisines).

Cheesy Quesadillas with Roasted Tomato Soup

A bowl of roasted tomato soup with cheese quesadillas

It’s soup season! I’ll be posting a lot of soups/stews in the coming months and I figured I’d kick off the season with a basic – tomato soup. More specifically – this Roasted Tomato Soup and Cheesy Vegetable Quesadillas because what goes better with tomato soup but cheese? Completely randomly though, the weather in Cincinnati has been hovering in the ... Read More »
