There you have it, folks!  26 soups from A to Z, spanning what, 3 mths (or has it been 6? lol)  I've learned a lot about soup making...  One surprising thing is that they go together so quickly.  Perhaps slow simmered all day over a low flame would improve the taste of a pot of soup - at least I would think so!  I can't say however, that by making a soup start to finish in the morning, and eating it for lunch detracted from the flavors.  I'm also happy to have found a couple of recipes calling for Anchovies/paste (which I ABSOLUTELY hated, until I first tried one a couple years ago!)  They certainly do lend a unique flavor!

Where will CrazyCook's adventures lead next...?  Who knows, I canned jam yesterday (it was only 108 outside!)  It's the time of year for cold side dishes, from garden salad to coleslaw, potato salad to cold beans...

Have a great summer, be happy, be healthy, cook crazy!

Perfect - I saved the whole blog post to my recipe box. That better be marvelous jam at 108 degrees. It has been 90 here for the last two days and I am wilting...of course, the humidity has also been about 75%. Still better than being cold IMO. Thanks again for the list.

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
