Roasted Curry Vegetable Soup

It has been bone chillingly cold here.  Even with the furnace blasting away, I am cold.  Like shivering cold.  I know I am suffering more than most because of a mismanaged thyroid disease but holy moly it would be nice to feel my toes again!! Not only am I craving warming spices, like cumin, cinnamon […]

How to make Chicken Stock

 “Why is chicken soup superior to all things we have, even more relaxing than ‘Tylenol?’  It is because chicken soup has a natural ingredient which feeds, repairs and calms the mucous lining in the small intestine.  The inner lining is the beginning or ending of the nervous system.  It is easily pulled away from the […]

The Worlds Best Pot Roast (the secret is a little Balsamic Vinegar)

I didn’t grow up eating pot roast.  We didn’t eat tons of beef when I was a kid.  Maybe because it was too expensive on a single moms budget, maybe it was too time consuming, or maybe because my moms recipe lexicon of 7, one for every day of the week, was full….I don’t mean […]

Tom Kha Gai or Tom Kha Goong

I am officially completely obsessed with this soup.  I don’t mean in a ‘I like to eat it’ way but that I would bathe in it if you weren’t going to judge me.  I have made 3 batches of it since Sunday (it is Tuesday).  I love the smell, the sweet, salty, sour and bitterness, […]

My Good Morning Coffee

This road to recovery is so much longer than I anticipated.  I thought when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s Disease that it meant my health issues were solved.  That finally they would have a path and a treatment plan for my on-going symptoms.  It is almost 5 years later (since the diagnoses) and I am […]
