Coming Up for Air…

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Apr 4, 2009 at 2:38pm

After a week of being too sick to cook or eat much, I’m finally able to taste food again.  Yes! I’m not interested in anything complicated or rich, but am definitely ready to venture beyond soup.

And talk about a fast, nutritious meal – abracadabra, lunch is ready in 10 minutes, and yay! It’s not yet another sandwich….

French Onion Soup

Posted by Stephanie Meyer on Dec 6, 2008 at 6:18pm

Good on a cold Saturday night. And not nearly as decadent as it looks – onion broth, dry croutons, and a slice or two of Gruyere cheese. That’s it. Enjoy. French Onion Soup Adapted from Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child Serves 6 1 ½ lbs. or about 5 c. of thinly…
