Broccoli & Blue Cheese Soup {with chicken sausage}

by Lauren


I made a couple of delectable cheese boards for a NYE party last week and we still had quite the hunk of blue cheese left over. I had the urge to make something special with it since it’s rare that we have any cheese other than feta, cheddar, or parmesan in the house.

We haven’t been dishing out very many soup recipes this season in the LYK so I thought I’d indulge winter and make this pureed vegetable soup.

Spiced Sweet Potato, Apple and Kale Quinoa

Confession of a foodie: New Years Eve and I aren’t really getting along right now. All the planning, over priced parties and sequins sort of stress me out.

The only thing as of late that I enjoy about New Years Eve is the excuse to make and stuff myself with a lot more tasty, not-so-healthy, oober satisfying, holiday-type foods.
