Ginger Carrot Soup with a Touch of Orange

There’s been a lot happening behind the scenes of Sharing The Food We Love and much of it is unrelated to food hence the level of radio silence that has been going on. I’ve been very hesitant to blog about the biggest news that is happening with us for fear of turning into another blog…

Jane Grigson’s Gazpacho

This month begins a new year of The Cookbook Guru, an online cookbook club, where food bloggers from around the world share their cooking experiences from the same cookbook.  Last year by participating I discovered new recipes, learnt new techniques and challenged myself with recipes that I had previously found too intimidating to attempt.  This…

Chilled Carrot and Hazelnut soup

When I started making the Pea and Mint soup earlier this week I got into the chilled soup groove and decided to give this recipe a go too.  I didn’t find this recipe to be as successful in its execution or flavour balance, although I would definitely use it as a base inspiration for making…

Carrot and Blue Cheese Soup

Soup has been the dish du jour for me lately with the frosty days of winter upon us. To be honest though, I really shouldn’t complain about the weather living in Queensland.  Whilst my southern friends and family are shivering through this season, we are still being treated to sunny days of 20+C, although the…

Cream of Tomato Soup

I think we may have a winner! I talked earlier this month about my contributions for this month’s The Cookbook Guru and trying to decide which of my cookbooks on my shortlist should be my official nomination for next year’s list. Well I’ve been spending the past week or so flicking through pages, browsing and…

Sharing The Food We Love Right Now

So often I share food with you all that has been created for special occasions, for treats or as an experiment. Whilst we love all kinds of food, sometimes I feel as if I’m veering from the true spirit of my blog, which is to share food that is easy to make on a regular basis,…

Feeding a Healing Mouth

I have had the fortune of reaching the ripe old age of 36 years without needing to have much work done on my teeth…. this past month the situation changed when I found myself in hospital having all four of my wisdom teeth removed.   An adventure that is not at the top of most people’s…

Orange Vegetable and Ginger Soup

Somewhere in the back of my memory I’d retained the idea of this soup that I first read about on Frugal Feedíng’s Blog.   The idea sounded kinda cool, but given that his posting was in our summer, it wasn’t something I was keen to try immediately and so I forgot about it.   Fast forward to…

Chicken Congee

What a wonderfully healing dish this is to eat. This recipe was shared with me as an idea of something I might be able to handle when I was recovering from having my wisdom teeth removed this past week.   Whilst it has suited perfectly to this situation, I believe it may just become a part…

Quick Tasty Vegetable Soup

Cold wintry weather has descended on Brisbane for the year.  You’ve probably noticed my growing number of cosy foods being posted to compensate for the cold chill pervading my home and this city. This soup was souper quick (te he!) to put together and is an easy option for a work night dinner or a…

Chicken & Sweet Corn Soup

Unfortunately this time of year tends to bring with it cold’s and flu’s.  There’s been some particularly nasty strains doing the rounds and our household has not been immune.   Whilst there is a lot of remedy’s that are proven to be effective for recovering and preventing these illnesses,  there is something a little bit…

Creamy Cauliflower Soup

Soup is such a quick comforting food in the cooler months. It warms your insides and often takes the chill from your face (and if you happen to be drinking from a mug, your hands as well). I love soup for its simplicity, it’s cheap to make and great to freeze for last-minute can’t be…
