This Blog Has Moved!

I moved my blog on New Years Day, 2010. If you haven't come to see my new blog, head on over HERE now. This blog will be available for archive reading but I won't be posting here anymore. I hope you'll join me at my new bloggy home!

p.s. I am slowly but surely moving all the blogs I follow over to the new blog, so if I haven't come to visit you for a while, my advice is to leave a comment on my new blog, so I don't miss you in the shuffle!

About Me

My photo
I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...

Recipe: Roasted Red Pepper Soup

I just love this soup, especially right now with fresh Farmer's Market veggies.

This is a combination of two recipes which I tweaked to my own liking.

I usually don't measure, so you might have to play around with your measurements. The measurements below are just estimates since the size of the veggies vary based on what's available at the market each week.


Roasted Red Pepper Soup

4 red peppers, chopped
2 large tomatoes, chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 large cloves garlic, chopped

2 tbsp olive oil

1 can chicken broth

1 tsp thyme
1 tsp paprika
2 tsp sugar
salt & pepper (to taste)
dash hot sauce
2 Tbsp butter
1 1/2 tsp flour

dollop sour cream
Parmesan cheese, shredded.

Place Peppers, tomatoes, onions and garlic in roasting pan and drizzle with olive oil. Place in 450 oven for approximately 40-50 minutes until softened. Remove and cool.

Puree in food processor. Transfer to pot and add remaining ingredients except Parmesan Cheese and Sour Cream.

Heat through.

Serve with Parmesan cheese and sour Cream on top.


Serves 3-4.
