carrot, coconut and ginger soup

I made dinner this past weekend which had carrots as a side dish, and they were the best carrots I had ever had. That’s a huge statement since… It’s just a carrot; nothing to get too excited about. I steamed them first and then sautéed them in dried herbs till they softened and got all…

creamy summer squash and cauliflower soup with dill

I love soups when the flavors sound strange together but come out beautifully. Summer squash? Sure. Cauliflower? Sure. But together? I decided I wanted to continue to lower my histamine levels while also having something low carb and filling – soup it is. You Will Need: Summer Squash (yellow squash – Depending on how many…

roasted vegetable soup with ricotta and kale

I have been trying to add more healthy options to my diet, things that I may have passed over in the produce isle. They say to stick to grocery store perimeters; stay away from the interior… Produce is a great place to start getting creative. We all know the benefits of kale, but have you…

sweet potato and kale soup

We’re hanging onto colder weather here in Franklin for as long as we can… We had snow, then it was 70 degrees and then it dropped back down to the 40’s and I’d be happy if it just stayed put for a while. I’m not done making soups and snuggling up under blankets! This soup…

roasted butternut squash soup with cashews and ground sage

Soup again? Yes. Never gets old in my opinion, especially during this weather. I was told Franklin, TN hadn’t had a snow “storm” in over five years. Now today, stores, local offices… all closed for the second day in a row due to what’s happening outside. We’re expecting more snow tonight through tomorrow… What is…

shrimp bisque with mushrooms, cashews and low carb dunking chips

Shrimp bisque was something I was dreaming about for days… Thinking this was because I was about to have it at some obscure new restaurant I had yet to discover (we only just moved here) or that I would manifest it into existence by just obsessing about it. I realized instead… In the end, what…

christmas table-setting and dinner, our still-unpacking-style

This was my first Christmas with my husband in our new town of Franklin, and we were only a month into living here. Boxes everywhere… I did the best I could using what we found. I’ll outline the menu and then just show photos, as well as where I got some of the things you’ll…

cream of zucchini soup with onion and cilantro

When I was diagnosed with an egg yolk and nickel allergy I was… pissed. Tell me what’s good that doesn’t have yolk in it?! So, I did the elimination diet (did you know food and meds also have nickel in them? Not just what you cook with?) and, I noticed a big change within just…

cream of mushroom soup with thyme and parmesan

I love cream of anything. And as we continue to be brave and creative with our culinary exploits, I want to make sure I publish recipes that feel decadent but not be considered real cheating. Soups are a great way to accomplish this. You will want to play around with the amount of each seasoning…

asparagus and sage soup

Making a lot of soup lately… It calms me drinking soup during this quarantine. I can feel the bone broth nutrients hitting my system and I’m immediately calmed knowing that I’m putting ingredients in my body that are good for me. Good for my gut, for my mind and took no time at all to…

chicken and roasted broccoli soup with toasted sesame oil

I had wanted to find a way to use up what we had at the time in our home: a half empty box of broth and some broccoli. Of course that would be fine but, my husband would have said he was still hungry and hour later. And then into the keto snacks he’d go……

cream of broccoli soup

Whenever you read “cream of” anything, you don’t think *healthy*. But this soup is very low in calories and carbs, while filled with nutritious ingredients in a filling warm concoction. I had missed soups… I used to make them creamy with potatoes or cashews. Then we started Keto and I would dress up our favorite…
