Coconut Pumpkin Curry Soup

November 3rd, 2011

I didn’t take a picture of this one, but trust me…..it was yummy. If the name sounds scary, the coconut flavor really doesn’t come through in this, but it adds the creaminess I like in soup without the dairy component!

1 14 oz can Chicken Broth
1 14 oz can Coconut Milk
1 15 oz can Pumpkin Puree
1 Tbsp. Grated Fresh Ginger
1 Tsp. Fresh Ground Pepper
1 Tsp. Mohini Tandoori Blend
1 Tsp. Todd’s Crabby Dirt

Toss everything into a pan on medium heat, bring to a boil, then reduce and simmer for 45 minutes or so. As usual, feel free to vary ingredients as you desire!

Enjoy!

Soft Pretzels

November 2nd, 2011

Lately, I’ve had a craving for those big, chewy salty soft pretzels. I halved the recipe found here: http://allbetzoff.blogspot.com/2011/03/soft-prezels.html although, since it took most of the day, I really should have just made a full recipe and stuck half in the freezer. They were really yummy. The most difficult part was getting the dough thin enough by rolling it between my palms.
