Recipe: Vegetable Vegetarian Soup

As a little kid, I remember many a lunch that consisted of a can of Campbell's soup and a sandwich. One of my favorites was the Vegetable Vegetarian that had ABCs in it. A bowl of that and a grilled cheese made for a pretty happy me. Seeing that I

It's the beginning of June, which means technically it's still spring but mentally we all view it as summer. If you live in New Hampshire, as I do, Mother Nature likes to provide reminders as to what season it truly is. Last week I had an evening alone and

We are starting a new way of organizing recipes on Think Tasty. For the past year we have focused on a different type of recipe each month, e.g. desserts. I think we did a great job, but change is good. We now will be focusing on different biweekly food

Broccoli “Meat”balls- an Oxymoron

As I started typing the title of this recipe, I realized it sounds kind of funny to call this appetizer a meatball.  You see, there is no meat in this recipe.  I would say that it is a vegetarian delight, but my rather carnivorous husband enjoyed this dish just

Sometimes in the summer I just want a dish that is completely cold.  I don't want to turn on the oven or even reheat in the microwave. I simply want to take ingredients from the pantry and refrigerator and create a cooling meal.  That can be done quite simply

When our daughter decided to become a vegetarian a few years ago, I wasn't opposed to the idea.  I have chosen a vegetarian lifestyle at different points in my life.  Although I haven't done so for years, I do enjoy many vegetarian dishes, such as tofu stir fry or

I may not like the feel of cold weather, but I do love that it changes the way I cook.  When temperatures dip, it becomes time to make soups, stews, and chilis.  With several months of chilly weather ahead of us, I like to have a variety of recipes

As I've mentioned previously, our fourteen year old daughter is a vegetarian.  In fact, she's partaken in this lifestyle for almost two years.  The good thing about her eating habits is that she adores legumes of all varieties.  Thus, I don't worry about her intake of protein.  She also

Having one person that is vegetarian in our house doesn't make meal planning difficult, usually.  When there are four or more of us for dinner, I simply substitute the meat item with a non-meat protein, and everyone is happy.  In fact, quite often I make two of the non-meat

A recent Sunday was filled with a nice combination of events:  a few hours of work in the morning, a few hours of back to shopping, a little bit of cooking, and finally, hanging out with the family while eating and watching the Patriots game.  Although it may not have

Canning and freezing season is in full swing at our house.  A few weeks ago, we spent the weekend making one batch of canned tomatoes and creating all sorts of peach items: peach and tomato salsa, peach jam, pickled peaches, peach-infused vinegar, peach-infused vodka, and peach bread.  Our basement shelves

Although I am not a vegetarian, I am a huge fan of produce.  Some of my favorite meals are based around fruits and vegetables.  So, this time of year is quite exciting for me.  After a long winter and spring with almost no freshly picked produce, it is a delight
