Potato & Cilantro Soup

By Thursday, December 4, 2014

An oldie but goodie! I first made this soup in second year university, and blogged about it way back when I first started blogging. And since I'm going through all my recipes and re-photographing them (so my readers like you have pretty pictures to look at), I made it again recently. LOVE THIS SOUP! You see, I ...

Lentil & Spinach Soup

By Friday, August 1, 2014

I'm trying to be healthy. It's hard. First world problems. I get asked a lot of questions about the blog. You can check out my FAQ page for the answers to the most common ones. But there is one question that I did not include on that page because I feel so weird answering it. Although, it's ...

Thai Butternut Squash Soup

By Wednesday, October 16, 2013

The perfect fall soup. Things that mean fall to me: Soup Squash Pumpkin Chrysanthemums Fall colours/leaves Did I miss anything? I decided it was an appropriate time to make a delicious squash soup. Normally I gravitate towards my go-to soups, like my Mama’s spicy squash soup or the carrot squash soup I tried last year. But I actually ended up combining three different ...

Peanut Butter & Tomato Soup

By Tuesday, February 19, 2013

This post was updated with new photography in December 2015. As I’ve said many times before, I love me some peanut butter. But, sadly, My Other Half thinks I’m hoarding it. So I’ve been on the hunt for recipes to use up my stash. I was totally sold when I stumbled upon this “pantry superstar” Moroccan Tomato Soup ...

Guest Post: Mama’s Spicy Squash Soup

By Thursday, January 19, 2012

I am really excited about this post! Lately, I've been wanting to have more guest bloggers featured on my site, just to keep things interesting. When I asked my Mama (Barbara Kent) to write a post, she was more than happy to oblige. I've learned a lot of my kitchen tricks and secrets from her, so ...

Julia’s Five Favourite Soups in 2011

By Thursday, January 12, 2012

Eventually I will stop recapping my favourite recipes from 2011 and write about some of the new stuff I’ve been making, but in the meantime, I wanted to give my readers what they like best – soup recipes! I also need to play some  serious catch up… I have about six blog posts sitting in my ...

Broccoli & Blue Cheese Soup

By Tuesday, May 10, 2011

This post was updated in February 2015 with new photography! I am writing this not long after my parents have hit the road and are off to Toronto where my Dad has some speaking engagements. It’s very sad to see them leave, but I am happy and feeling really satisfied with their visit. We did everything ...

Cauliflower Soup

By Friday, February 11, 2011

Before I start, I can confirm that this is, indeed, yet another soup recipe. This recipe is simple, healthy and basic is every sense of the word. And I needed to use up my cauliflower. So it was good for that. And I spruced it up! I added some cayenne pepper and some fresh cilantro (not shown in my ...

Roasted Red Pepper & Sweet Potato Soup

By Tuesday, January 25, 2011

Note: This post has been updated with new photography as of January 2014! This is for those of you who loved my Sunshine Soup! It seems like every soup I make keeps getting better.

Chinese Five-Spice Soup

By Monday, October 18, 2010

This post was updated in February 2015 with new photography! So I am more than a little behind with the blogging, but to be honest, I've been on a bit of a cooking drought. My Other Half has been traveling for the past 6 weeks, pretty much non stop. On top of that, I've been all ...

Pea & Mint Soup

By Thursday, August 26, 2010

As a little girl, my Mama called me the "soup kid." Every single time we went out for lunch, supper, whatever, I ordered soup. I didn't care what kind, I just ordered it. I also always remember having soup for lunch after church on Sundays. In addition, soups were the first things I learned to ...

Slow Cooker Spicy Cheese Soup

By Tuesday, August 10, 2010

My very first job (other than babysitting and eldercare) was at the Cole Harbour Heritage Farm, as a waitress in their Rose and Kettle Tearoom. I was 15. I had visited the farm and museum countless times as a kid, and I knew it well. I also knew I wanted to eventually be a server ...
