Chicken Noodle Soup {a classic}

by Lauren

chicken noodle soup 4

There are about as many versions of chicken noodle soup recipes as there are cute puppy videos online but this is my favorite version. Simple, healthy, and determined to knock out your cold or flu.

My mom used to give me chicken and stars soup as a kid. I loved that stuff. The best reason to be sick was to have Campbell’s chicken and stars soup. I haven’t had it for a very long time but I’m sure that salty … Read more...

I’d love to show you something really impressive and totally unique that I’ve made in the recent days but to be honest, there has been little to no time for cooking.

It’s a little bit sad but with good reason. Cooking and yoga are my daily release and recharge, but lately other things in my schedule have taken precedence. Mainly wedding/marriage prep!

Chicken & Cannellini Soup with Kale

by Chrissy

If it wasn’t for consuming a large bowl of this soup before writing this post, I am fairly positive that my fingers would be icicles. When it drops into the 30’s by Southern California’s coastline, I know that it has to be absolutely frigid everywhere else.

Fear not! There’s nothing like a little homemade soup to warm up the body & soul…and restore to functional use in no time at all.

The pleasant mixture of sage and leek, kale and … Read more...

Sweet Potato Gnocchi & Roasted Butternut Squash

by Chrissy

 

News flash: I actually felt a little chilly sleeping with the fan next to my face, last night. It looks like San Diego might just be giving into the arrival of Fall. Although it was still perfect beach weather, I thought I’d steal this opportunity to make a lovely Autumn dish.

My brother, Mike, was staying with me for the weekend so it was the perfect time to go all Fall “gourmet”. Him and I have the same love … Read more...
