Easy Mushroom Ramen

Easy Mushroom Ramen is my cure to the common cold, being cold and just being plain miserable. Easy Mushroom ramen was really not my first ramen I planned on making.

Cream of Tomato

Cream of tomato soup is such a retro retro. Cream of tomato soup is not something that I grew up with. I can imagine my mom presenting her meat-eating husband with a bowl of cream of tomato soup and call it supper. Maybe that would have caused somewhat of a hiccup in their 50+ years […]

Mushroom Soup with Smoked Paprika for Meatless Monday

Posted on May 1, 2011 by in vegetarian

I love using mushrooms in meatless dishes, because they bring a certain meatiness to the meal, so for those of us who are still carnivores by nature, are  fooled into eating a meal without meat. Last year while developing a series of recipes for a company that grows exotic mushrooms, I was exposed to shiitake, […]
