Thanksgiving has come and gone and I am sure we all ate our hearts out, but now comes the question of what to do with all that leftover turkey. One of my favorite soup recipes has always been Italian Wedding Soup. I like it so much because it is usually very hearty but doesn't leave you feeling weighed down. Normally the meatball is made of a beef and pork mixture, but I always make mine using ground turkey because it contains less fat and is healthier for you. So feel free to use your leftover Thanksgiving turkey or buy some ground turkey from the super market!
So I managed to burn my hand while cooking last night, and of course it was a completely mindless accident - I grabbed a pan that had just been in a 400 degree oven (ouch!!). Yup, it put a damper on the night, but the worst part is that I felt so dumb about it. If only I had burned my hand doing something kind of cool - like fire-roasting some eggplants (or even some marhsmallows?) - I could have at least felt some sort of dignity or satisfaction about the whole ordeal.Anyway, I did end up fire-roasting some eggplants last night. And I didn't burn my hand doing it. Turns out it's a pretty tame activity that… continue reading a little fire-roasting can't hurt.

I think that these adorable mini grilled cheese sandwiches are perfect to serve with the soup instead of croutons. You still get the "grilled cheese" flavor, but none of the butter and excessive fat that goes with it. I used freshly grated parmesan cheese because it's so flavorful, and one tablespoon (which is how much I use in each sandwich) has only 20 calories and 1… continue reading roasted tomato soup and mini grilled cheese sandwiches. | 6 Comments
It rained for the first time last night and of course I wanted something warm for dinner, so I made my favorite soup growing up: chicken noodle soup! However, the way my mom made chicken noodle soup was slightly different than the way most people are used to it. In middle eastern culture their version of chicken noodle soup uses a boiled onion and lemon juice to flavor the broth rather than the traditional celery and carrots. This was my favorite soup growing up and it still holds a special place in my heart, so I hope you guys like it as much as I do.
