Mediterranean Soup from Cooking Light

I love me some good soup and this recipe is one I always fall back on during the cooler months.

It is from a decade old Cooking Light magazine and is called Mediterranean Chickpea, Tomato and Pasta Soup.

Ingredients:Recipe:The smell of this soup from the cinnamon is so fragrant and this soup is so comforting.Some changes I made to the recipe are as follows:
1 - Instead of ditalini, I used elbow macaroni.
2 - I eliminated parsley.
3 - Very important - I used two cans of chicken broth because if you don't, this won't be a soup but more like a stew.

I really love this soup and hope you do too.

What are some soups that you love to make?

"Anyone who tells a lie has not a pure heart,
and cannot make a good soup."

The Case of the Missing Vases has been Solved!

I found them!

I have solved The Case of the Missing Vases.

You may remember this post about my missing vases.Well, I searched everywhere and today, while passing a chest of drawers in my guest room, I got this feeling, "Open up the bottom drawer."

And there the beauties were! In a totally empty drawer that I never put anything in because it always sticks.

Woo hoo!

Blog Writer Block

I've got nothing.

I really don't.image

I think I am all tapped out from the creative swell of Christmas that I am at a loss for anything crafty and for my blog in general.

How do you break your blog writing block?

Martha Stewart Show Canceled

Not sure if you heard but The Martha Stewart Show has been canceled.

As someone who has been to her show three times (you can read about all of my visits on my blog), I am a bit sad.I found her shows to be fun and her staff, some of the nicest people.

You can read more about this here.

So, weigh in. What do you think?

Will you miss Martha?

Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres Handbook and Blue Cheese Popovers

Happy New Year everyone!

I'd like to share with you an hors d'oeuvre I made for the new year from a cookbook I have had for several years; Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres Handbook.
This is a really comprehensive cookbook for all things hors d'oeuvres.

I decided to make Blue Cheese Popovers.Ingredients:

My take on this recipe:
1 - Super easy to make
2 - Tasted horrible and said popovers are now in the trash. I followed this recipe to a tee. They were so bland. Because they were easy to make, I will try to savor-up the recipe and see what happens.
3 - The recipe instructs using a mini muffin tin and will make 48 popovers. I used a mini muffin tin and you can see from my photo that they only made 18 popovers. I guess not all mini muffin tins are made the same.

I will certainly make more of the recipes from Martha's book but not this one, this way.
