Roasted Broccolini Soup #FreshTastyValentines #sponsor #giveaway

Here we are at day two of my multi-day, multi-blogger event Fresh Tasty Valentines. This recipe is so fast and so tasty. And I love that it can be on the table in less than thirty minutes. So it's perfect if Valentines were to fall on a weekday. I was inspired by the fresh broccolini from one of our event sponsors - Mann Packing - and herbs from another event sponsor - Gourmet Garden. Don't miss the giveaway at the bottom of this post for a chance to win prizes from these two great companies. Additionally, after #FreshTastyValentines is over, I will be hosting a second giveaway for Gourmet Garden. Love them!


  • 1/2 lb broccolini (that was one 8 ounce packages from Mann Packing)
  • olive oil
  • juice from 1 organic lemon
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper
  • 6 C chicken stock
  • 2 T parsley (I used lightly dried parsley from Gourmet Garden) + more for sprinkling
  • 1 T garlic (I used chunky garlic paste from Gourmet Garden)
  • 1 t lemongrass (I used lemongrass paste from Gourmet Garden)
  • 1 t ginger (I used ginger paste from Gourmet Garden)
  • crème fraîche for serving
  • Optional: broccoli flower for serving

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Slice broccolini into 2" lengths and lay them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle the broccolini with olive oil and lemon juice. Roast for 15 minutes until tender.

In batches, puree the broccolini in a blender  with chicken stock until smooth. Return the soup to the pot, add in remaining ingredients, except for the crème fraîche and broccoli flowers, if using. Bring soup to a simmer to heat through. To serve, garnish with a swirl of crème fraîche, broccoli flowers, if using, and another sprinkle of parsley. Serve immediately.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
