It’s SoupTime!

Pin It
It’s so cold here in Chicago, which means it’s time to get the kitchen warm with a hearty beef-barley-mushroom soup.  After warming up with the soup, I need to go out and finish my last minute Christmas shopping.  If you have a favorite winter soup, I would love to hear about it! 
After last minute shopping today, I want to make an Italian nougat called “Torrone” that is filled with hazelnuts and almonds.  It’s a traditional Italian Christmas treat that I have been wanting to try for a long time.  Watch for a photo and the recipe later!
P.S.  A special birthday wish today to my friend Roxanne, who I miss very much!

    The only thing I like about winter is the excuse to make lots of hearty soups. Our favorite is an Italian sausage and tortellini soup. It contains Italian sausage and tortellini, obviously, but also onions, carrots, garlic, tomatoes, red wine, beef stock, and zucchini. It’s a delicious meal in a bowl. Leek and potato soup is a close second, followed by lentil soup with smoked sausage and lots of vegetables.

    Can’t wait to hear how your attempt at torrone goes. I love it, but I’ve never tried to make it myself.

    Completely agree with you – and your soups sound wonderful. The torrone will probably be made tonight. I’ll post about it!
