This is my favorite recipe for potato soup. It's a copycat of the one they use to serve at the St. Louis Bread Company (Panera). The recipe originally called for shredding your potatoes, but I never could get them to cook that way. I know they should cook faster, but I never could get it to work.
This is the best chili recipe I have ever tried. I'm not sure where the recipe originated, but it is amazing! Sometimes, I don't bother adding all four cans of the kidney beans and it still turns out wonderful. Once anyone tastes this chili, they will be begging for the recipe!! Enjoy!
You will not believe the deeply satisfying flavour of this stew. This is our favourite wintry stew dish - comfort food to the max. The cooking time is more or less accurate, but it really depends on the cut of meat used - not everyone used chuck, and then, not all chuck is the same! You really have to poke and prod and taste to get it to where you want it...but that's what cooking is all about, isn't it? ;-)
One of St. Louis's favorite soup recipes was recently printed in the Post-Dispatch. I remember going to St. Louis when I was young and my family going into the department store's restaurant for this famous soup. Enjoy! Famous-Barr's French Onion Soup
Adapted from Semi-Homemade Cooking with Sandra Lee, this is easy with yummy results. Put it on in the morning and come home to a soothing, comforting dinner. Crackers or bread and a salad finish off this meal.
I call this "rescued", because so many people throw away the turkey carcass after a big meal. Don't! Rescue it! Making stock is not hard or complicated. You'll be rewarded with delicious soup, and an amazing aroma will fill your home as you make the stock. And you don't even have to make soup right away -- just freeze the stock!
This IS a WONDERFUL SOUP. And look at the list, just a few ingredients! I came up with lots of GREAT ideas for the contest, but when I asked my friends what they liked best, they always mentioned this humble soup! How funny is that? The rum really makes a difference. It is added at the very end, so if you have kids at the table and you're worried about it, just serve them first and add the rum later. You may want to leave it out altogether, but just let me tell you one more time that the RUM IS a LOVELY ADDITION. I use Patak's curry paste which is available in Asian stores where I live. Madras is labelled as a hot paste and Korma as mild. I've also tried a Patak's paste called HOT/TRES EPICE which I do NOT RECOMMEND.
This is a fabulous potato soup recipe. I have been making this for years. It is an recipe from a restaurant called The Machine Shed. I am always asked to make it by my family as well as for big gatherings. We also have it on Halloween every year before the kids go Trick-O-Treating. Our local store makes individual bread bowls that are orange and look like pumpkins. They love the soup in these festive bread bowls. It is a bit of a time consuming recipe to make, but well worth it once in awhile.
I couldn't find a recipe that looked good and I didn't want to puree the soup, so I combined 3 recipes and came up with this one. It was delicious which I found hard to believe with so few ingredients. It also came out a nice golden colour.
The most charming place I have ever eaten was the Inn On Brushy Creek in Austin when I lived there in the mid 80's. It was a small house converted into a dining room and kitchen that only served 12 tables at a time and they were only open on the weekends. It was BYOB and the family cat was always basking on the hearth of the fireplace but would occasionally patrol the room looking for attention. The proprietors were a charming elderly male couple who would visit you tableside to make sure dinner was perfect, which it always was. You never knew what was on the menu for the evening because they changed the menu every weekend but the meals were always world class. You would have your choice of the fish, chicken, or beef. But- they always served this soup as a first course. After months of pleading and an impromptu performance of "Stand By Your Man" to a stunned but enthusiastic dinner crowd, they gave me the recipe and a standing ovation. Delighted but humiliated, I asked what the name of the House Soup really was, and they said, "Two Old Queens Soup!" The dining room roared with laughter. That was the most enjoyable meal I ever had.
This is a meatless (not vegetarian) Borscht, and even my husband, who MUST have meat with every meal, loves this! Sometimes we make it in summer and serve it cold. It's very tasty! It came from a cookbook many years ago, but I can't remember which one. And I've changed it over the years and I do my own thing, there is no need to measure any of the veggies, it always turns out wonderful. So eyeball it! (Your food processor will come in mighty handy for shredding all these veggies!) Enjoy!
