Years ago, I was introduced to Pumpkin Soup by a friend of mine. At the time I was actually kind of scared to try it. Writing that now sounds ridiculous. This soup is the savory incarnation of fall. It’s everything you want out of a soup. And it just so happened that week 41 of […]

Stew is one of those fantastic, magical meals. It’s typically one-pot, which cuts down on prep. And you can customize to your hearts content. For this weeks challenge, I made Gumbo. This is the recipe I learned from my Mom. I know what you’re thinking, “Marga where’s the roux???” Well, I don’t make my gumbo […]

This week has been freaking CRAY. I’ve had so much to get done, and Mike has too. So when I walk through the door and dinner is literally already waiting for us, it’s a reason to smile. I love using my crock pot. It’s so easy, and you can combine basically anything and you know […]

SOPA Azteca

January 18 , 2012 by Marga Munson - in Soups

Today, several websites are “dark.” What this means, is that they are protesting the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) legislation that will be voted on next week by Congress. And while I am not necessarily in support of pirated/copyright infringed goods, I think in the very least, this bill was poorly written. And the threat […]

National Soup Month

Back to work today after a wonderful weekend of doing, well, not much. I’m happy to report Mike and I  were in our PJ’s for the majority of the weekend, and pizza was involved. Also, we finally finished season one of The Walking Dead. Holy crap that’s a good show; can’t wait to dig into […]

For anyone that’s ever been to a Chinese restaurant, and seen the egg drop (also called egg flower) soup, with its bits of egg seemingly suspending in a slightly gelatinous broth….and actually ENJOYED it…this is a recipe for you. I was literally amazing at how easy this soup is to prepare. Even more so, Mike […]

Refried Bean Soup

December 19 , 2011 by Marga Munson - in Main Dish, Soups

Every once in a while I stumble across a recipe that, well, sounds completely terrible. And then I make it and I’m completely shocked by how tasty it turns out. This was definitely the case with the following recipe, Refried Bean Soup. Even the name seems a little odd to me. However, the end product […]

Here we go kids! I originally wanted to make this soup on Halloween night, but that didn’t pan out. So we had it for dinner the following week. It turned out so good. Really simple and delicious. I adapted a recipe from and made it my own. I wanted to keep lots of earthy […]

Making Time

Hey guys. Ok…I’m a bad bad little blogger and I deserve to be banished to the depths of Blogger Hell… Seems a little dramatic, no? But really..I’ve missed this. Finished my finals last week, and here I am. Hoping to share my thoughts, recipes and love of food again. So dear readers….if you’ll take me […]
