43. Yearning-for-Summer Zucchini-Corn Soup

In its schizophrenic way, Portland's February weather has turned from typical (gloomy and grey) to balmy (temps in the 60s, clear blue sky) without giving much notice. And since this weather is only predicted to last a day or two … Continue reading

42. One of two soups made yesterday: Sopa de Pollo Veracruzana

37. Pinky-Crooking Garlic-Kale Soup

Coming from possibly the most unsophisticated person in this ZIP code: this soup seems kinda sophisticated, somehow. (See picture for reference.) It's delicate, brothy, light–the polar opposite of the robust, meal-in-a-bowl, rib-sticking soups I tend to feature here. This was … Continue reading
