When I started blogging about food here I had one baby and dreams of beautiful exquisite food that was half sustenance half art. Now I have three babies and dreams of dinner getting on the table in 10 minutes. These recipes are easy and delicious. And sometimes, they involve a microwave.
I made this roasted asparagus soup with lemon thyme crème fraîche a couple of weeks ago. My three year old refused to eat it. Eventually he did (read about it in the blog). Despite my son’s imprudent belief that the asparagus soup would kill him, it did not. And it’s delicious to boot. I don’t know what more you want in life than soup that doesn’t kill AND tastes good.
Are you looking for a fall soup recipe that isn’t butternut squash? There are so many delicious fall squashes to be enjoyed and butternut squash has been hogging all the attention! Or at the very least, trying sharing it with the pumpkin. The acorn squash isn’t the most neglected of the squashes, but it definitely isn’t getting the attention it should. So, here is my attempt at highlighting one of fall’s delicious squashes.

And you also don’t feel like you just left a sauna when you’re finished.
If you like mushrooms then you’ll like Paris. There is a plethora. But finding new ways to prepare them can sometimes tricky and sautéed mushrooms are yummy, but boring after three days (or so my husband tells me). Below is a recipe for cream of mushroom soup.
