Ginger Carrot Soup

Ginger Carrot Soup

This Ginger Carrot Soup is the best solution to the sniffles right now.  It's cozy and a little spicy and so delicious.  It also cooks in no time.  As you wait for the carrots to cook you can pour a glass of wine, help the kids with homework, or just take ten minutes to yourself.

Calzone Waffles with homemade Caesar Salad

Calzone Waffles with homemade Caesar Salad

Calzone Waffles are the most epic portable dinner.  If your month has been anything like mine - we've hardly had a night at home.  Sometimes it's for a party or dinner out - but other times we have just been so busy there is almost no time to eat dinner!  These waffles are perfect for popping in the car and running to practice, a movie out, or leaving for the babysitter!

White Cheddar Polenta with Roasted Broccoli

White Cheddar Polenta with Roasted Broccoli

I adore Broccoli Cheddar Soup, this is those same flavors - but a little heartier.  The creamy polenta is a great foil for the roasty toasty broccoli.

Curried Chicken Skewers

Curried Chicken Skewers

This is the ULTIMATE.  I adore this chicken.  I adore this couscous.  I adore this dinner.  I think this is a dreamy solution to entertaining this holiday.  So many holiday dinners are heavy and rich - surprise your dinner party with something totally unexpected.
