Does anyone know how to pronounce 'gnocchi'? I've been saying it like 'no-key' my whole life and I have no idea if that's right or not. I'm just assuming the 'g' is silent. I've heard people pronounce it like 'noque-ee' before, with a more French-like annunciation on the 'no' sound. Who is right? I was… Continue reading Chicken & Gnocchi Soup
Who need chicken noodle soup when you can make it better? And I mean MUCH better. Season chicken in Greek seasoning and cook this soup with orzo, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and kalamata olives. Soup has never tasted better!
New Year's Day wouldn't be a holiday without these four things: Pork Greens Cornbread Black eyed peas Ever since I was little, my mom has been making pork & black eyed peas for the holiday.

I'm glad I made this soup this weekend, though. I had my final (!!!) deep cleaning on my teeth yesterday and… Continue reading Chile Relleno Soup
Happy New Year's Eve! I've never been a huge fan of NYE (probably because I don't really drink), but it feels refreshing to have a new beginning. 2016 hasn't been particularly excruciating for me as it has to many around the world, but it wasn't the most pleasant either. I'm definitely glad to see it… Continue reading Chorizo & Sweet Potato Soup
With the weather gradually turning cold, all I can think about cooking are soups, stews, and chilis. Anything that is hot and liquidy sounds perfect to me on a windy, cold day in Oklahoma. I can't believe that when I was a kid, I loathed soups and stews. I still, to this day, can't stand… Continue reading Thai Potsticker Soup
