when it’s organic. If it’s GMO it will be contaminated with glyphosphate.

One of my favorites is Lima Bean soup (made with frozen Lima Beans). Slow simmered with onions, carrots and real meaty, smoked ham hocks.
Cook until the meat falls off the bone. Toss a couple whole cloves in there too! Cornbread works really well with this!
Baked apple for dessert!

I had a lot of greens in my garden last year and made wedding soup all winter long. This year, not so much.

Italian food is really popular around here. Almost all restaurants offer some version of Italian wedding soup.

43. Tomato soup is best homemade

The canned versions are too sweet and flat. Too thin, too. Also, goes so well with grilled cheese sandwiches made with cheddar and good bread. The panini press does a good job of building an outside crunch while melting the cheddar.

63. Back in my childhood we only had frozen Red's tamales...

and they were basically just a heaping amount of seductively spiced chili wrapped in mesa. They were a surprisingly good gut-bomb, but don't hold a candle to the tamales made by our local women and sold out the backdoor (to Hell with health codes) of many businesses in town. One quickly learns to get you order in early because they go fast!

Just didn't want people having to search for the recipe.

I'm not French but both of my 1st husband's parents and families were. My MIL taught me how to make meat pie and other good stuff. She passed away years ago but my kids still stay in touch with their aunt, uncle and cousins. I remarried so I only see them once in a blue moon.

We have meat pie at Thanksgiving, Christmas and every time we want meat pie! Instead of ketchup, we smear it with gravy. We also make meat stuffing for our turkey. Every family makes it differently and the best tasting pie is always yours!

One time I was in a restaurant with future son-in-law and he ordered the "Five-Alarm Chili". While we were waiting, there was an extremely loud "BANG!" (turns out a car ran into the kitchen wall). I turned to him and with a straight face said "Your chili is ready!"

68. Well - if you're Dutch, like my parents - you

make “Stamppot”. Kind of a shepherd’s pie, all in one pot mixed up - mashed potatoes, bacon, onions, diced up fried pork chops or smoked sausage, and well-rinsed sauerkraut. Use ALL the bacon grease and the pork chop butter to stir in with some heavy cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Sometimes kale instead of sauerkraut.

Heaven. The best memories of snowy Indiana winter nights, snug and warm around the dinner table.

We go to a restaurant in Aruba and they have a delicious entree called Sucade Lappen. Of course we eat it while the temperature is in the seventies and when we were talking to some Dutch women where we were staying they laughed because to them it is a dish for cold weather. Don't care, it tastes so good.

92. Cioppino, around the bay area it's a tradition. nothing like a big pot bubbling on the stove,

food, the aroma of tomatoes, garlic, fresh fish and shell fish. My family tradition is to make enough for a couple of days. You can also freeze it with out disastrous results. I took over cioppino duties from my father.

"This Cioppino recipe is undeniably a San Francisco original, made famous in the 1850s by Genoese immigrant Giuseppe Bazzuro at his eponymous restaurant. Derived from the traditional ciuppin—which means "little soup" in the Genoese dialect—the dish was originally a puree of cooked vegetables and leftover fish scraps. Over the years, Bay area chefs transformed it into a luxurious stew using local delicacies such as dungeness crab, as in this version from the city's legendary Tadich Grill."

This recipe is similar to the one we work with:
