Smooth Summer Squash Soup

Call me crazy, but sometimes even in the middle of summer a bowl of soup can be quite nice. I had the most amazing summer squash soup on our California road trip (when it's 60 degrees in the evening hot soup doesn't sound as crazy too).

Coconut-Curry Chicken Soup

I bought the herb turmeric months ago after reading about it's healing powers and thought I'd give it a try. It's hailed as a digestive aid, inflammation fighter and cancer defender. It can also be applied directly to the skin to heal wounds and eczema. But until a few weeks ago all it had done… Continue reading Coconut-Curry Chicken Soup
