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!
