Very Creamy-Potato Cheese Soup

This just seems like good comfort food. Just be careful moving the ingredients back and forth from the pot to the blender and back. Don’t burn yourself.   Serves 4 to 6 Ingredients 3 to 4 tablespoons butter 2 cups chopped onions 1 large garlic clove, minced or pressed 2 large potatoes, unpeeled and coarsely […]

“If It Were More Meaty It Would Wear Flannel” Chili

Our church holds a chili dinner once a year. I’ve been dying to get the smoker out a few more times before it snows and this seemed like a great opportunity. I’m using a Texas chili recipe I found online and improvising a little due to the fact that the Davis Rib Rub (posted here, scroll down) is […]

Mini Baguettes

I’ve always wanted to bake bread and this seems simple enough that you could do it yourself. One of the commenters in the original post says they use the whole recipe to bake one big loaf. I’ll include the link to the original as it has pictures to walk you through it. Also while this […]

Garlic Soup

While the kids took a dip in the pool I finally got some time to really tear into “Beard on Food.” Other than the fact that he and I bear a striking resemblance to one of my grandfathers…I love the way he cooks. When it comes to potatoes  and garlic he and I are kindred […]

Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana

Creamy Tomato Soup

So tonight I come home from work and sit down for supper. My wife was serving up bowls of this recipe. As I sat down to dinner the oldest–and possibly the first son to go to college–tells me, “Dad…this recipe better be in my college cookbook.” Son…I noticed your mom makes this with some booze. […]

Broccoli And Cheese Soup

Easy. Plain and simple. This is easy. I bet you could add some pre-cooked chicken. Or ladle the soup over a baked potato. Or dump the broccoli and add some ground beef and a few more onions to get some of that cheese-burger-noodle chowder.  Or…I could go on and on. I also feel the need […]

Miso Soup

This is a great soup. Very simple and easy to make. I find my wife likes it better than the miso at Asian restaurants. At first I thought she was just being nice. Then I tasted it. Not too shabby. I don’t have a weblink for this recipe. I got it out of a coffee […]
