Mofo 8: Gothic Purple Soup with Eggplant Chips

     Today's color scheme is "goth" inspired...I went with purple, since I happened to find a bag of organic purple sweet potatoes one day.  It was a very exciting find.  I've never tried these little guys before...I'm sure I'll love them just as much as their orange and white cousins!  Sweet potatoes are a… Continue reading Mofo 8: Gothic Purple Soup with Eggplant Chips

I've spent many a Thanksgiving wondering what to bake for a savory side to soak up excess mushroom gravy.  I always make something different every year.  I usually rotate between biscuits, cornbread, rolls, or mini croissants.  This year I decided to make a bit of it all (well, maybe not including the croissant part! ^_^').… Continue reading Butternut & Sage Olive Oil Muffins

MoFo Day 26: Caramelized Leek & Onion Miso Soup

For my rainy/snowy/generally dreary day meal, I'm going to make some broth and put stuff in it.     I love soups of all types, all year round.  The best time for soup, though is the fall and winter for me.  I love coming inside from the cold to a bowl (or sometimes cup!) of piping… Continue reading MoFo Day 26: Caramelized Leek & Onion Miso Soup
