Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
This recipe is absolutely amazing. I heated some up for lunch today at work and got compliments on the delicious smell. This will definitely be a staple in my recipe box, it is so good. The softness of the potatoes mixed with the saltiness of the bacon and sausage is so satisfying. The broth is really savory and the soup eats like a meal. I made two changes. I included fennel seed, which MAKES the flavor of this soup. I can't imagine it without fennel. Also, I substituted kale for spinach. The kale softens in the soup but does not become mushy. I added the kale at the same time that I added the potatoes. I used pre-cooked, pre-crumbled pork sausage which was a big time saver. I didn't add red pepper flakes, and I didn't miss them. This is a perfect recipe!

Chilled Cucumber Yogurt Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I made this soup after trying a version at a local restaurant. It is delicious and refreshing. I used fresh mint and dill (which makes the flavor, I think.) I also added cayenne pepper for an extra kick. I do think this recipe could use something additional to round out the flavor, maybe something sweet, but I am not sure what. The version I had the other day may have been garnished with feta. I think I will add the avocado next time to thicken it out a little bit. This is a great, healthy summer soup to try!
