Moving on up

As I have packed up my entire life and headed north, I have also packed up my blog and headed to a new location.

Please head to www.asimpleloveforfood.wordpress.com

Due to certain difficulties I will be posting all new recipes there. You can find all the recipes on this account there too.

Love and thanks,

Soup Season

Fall is here!

Warm cozy sweaters. Tall boots. Falling leaves. Smell of colder air. Rosey cheeks. Mittens and scarves. Shorter days, longer nights. Fire side. Sipping hot drinks. Brisk walks and crunching leaves under toe.

Chilly weather means hearty foods that warm you up from the inside.

Here is a round up of the soups I have made over the last year and will be making again soon as we dive deeper into fall.


Tomato Soup with Lentils

 Sausage, Bean and Spinach Soup
 Loaded Potato Soup
 Spicy Coconut Chicken and Rice Soup
 Chicken Noodle Soup
 Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Mustard Croutons

Broccoli Cheddar Soup with Mustard Croutons

It is officially soup season!

Soups have become one of my favourite things to cook. They tend to be inexpensive to make, they tend to come together quickly and most recipes make a lot of servings so you have meals for days, or you can freeze them and eat when you don't want to cook.

I have had a lot of success with soups in the past (check some out here, here, here, here and here) and this one is another home run! If you do make this please do not skip the croutons (unless you hate mustard....) they send this soup to new heights. I added 3 or 4 to my soup but ended up dunking in another handful - I couldn't get enough!!

Pumpkin Cupcakes with Brown Butter Icing

Today we are welcoming the first day of fall with arms wide open!

There is a chill in the air, the wind is twirling the first fallen leaves around and it is definitely a day for a jacket and scarf.

To celebrate the new season, I made cupcakes, because every celebration is better with cupcakes.

And not just any cupcakes, pumpkin cupcakes with delicious brown butter icing smeared over top, because nothing says fall like pumpkin... and sugar!

Buttermilk Pancakes

There are certain recipes that people have that are their "go-to's". A recipe that they have found, over years of trying others, that works and is perfectly in line with what they were searching for from the beginning.

Go-to's are tried and true recipes that they know are crowd pleasers, recipes that are executed properly every time they are made and they are recipes that make that person proud to serve to people they love.

There have been many Sunday mornings spent with me in the kitchen trying a new pancake recipe. In the few years I have been cooking I have google searched and tried numerous recipes, but each one lacked that certain taste I was going for.
