~ With the onset of cooler Fall weather I’ve been making different soups, some to eat now and some for the freezer for those colder winter days.  A new soup for me to try this year was parsnip and apple soup.  I found this recipe at The English Kitchen and there is a link to the printable recipe there.  As usual I tweek recipes to suit me.  This meant leaving out the salt and pepper, only using part of a really big sweet onion, and adding a veggie stock cube to the water.

Zucchini Bread

Categories: Recipes.

It’s that time of the year when zucchini are starting to be plentiful in the garden,  this year I didn’t grow my own, instead I’m relying on the farmers markets and farm road side stands.   I use a tried and true recipe from a Hasting County International Plowing Match cookery book from 1986.  These types of books are usually sold as fund raisers for various churches and organizations.

It’s time for another “Soup”er Sunday recipe. There is nothing like comfort food on a really cold day. I recently made a sausage and bean soup.  This really isn’t homemade soup as most of the ingredients come right from the can and just get all mixed in and cooked together.  But sometimes you just need a quick hearty meal to make.
