My new favorite recipe blog...

I'm sorry for having been so negligent of this little blog lately. I have lots of yummy stuff I want to put up--it's just that this precious tiny chub of love has taken over my life! I wouldn't have it any other way though :o) I promise to get some recipes up soon...

In the meantime, I wanted to let you know about a new recipe blog I've found that I LOVE. It's from a fantastic restaurant out in Utah that makes fresh, healthy salads, soups and sandwiches called Zupas. I guess they have guest bloggers that post their best/favorite recipes, and the ones I've made so far have been fabulous! Here are some:

The best caramel sauce: I made this to go over apple crisp and vanilla ice cream last week. Ummm, it was sort of heavenly. Reminded me of the caramel sauce on Copper Canyon's "Chocolate Uprising", fellow Marylanders... yeah, it's that good!

Ratatouille: I am trying to learn more about real French cuisine, because in less than 60 days I will have a real French sister-in-law! This one is so so so good, especially as a side to salmon, as the author recommends...

Oven-dried tomatoes: I love sun-dried tomatoes, I could (and do) honestly eat them plain. But they always stored in so much OIL! So I loved this idea of making your own in the oven. You can throw them in pastas, salads, whatever :o) Enjoy!

This one is on my menu for next week. I absolutely adore Indian food, but with nursing I have to be really careful about how much spice I take in. Making my own will enable me to cater to my spice-less needs :o)

Anyway, check the blog out HERE. They posted something about Butternut Squash Soup yesterday--yikes, I am SO excited that it is finally Fall...

I love this recipe ! Reminds me of you making soap at home, Mom.
And it's fun to see photos of your house there and see
Dad in that comfy chair we sat in when we visited,
attempting to use the slow internet :)

I can't wait to hear how the soap turned out in terms
of using it. Does it smell different since it is made with
animal fat? Any other differences from vegetable-based soap?

Love you!
