Chicken Soup for the Soul

Hi everyone!
My babies are a little under the weather today. So I made them some chicken soup.
Dusty loves it. Ever since he started pre-school he gets sick, people keep telling me it will only make his immune system stronger and I know that but, a mother always hates to see her children sick.

I love cookbooks from William Sonoma.  I started buying them when we got married.  Every recipe I try comes out delicious and full of flavor.

This book is a must have for those cold winter days.
When I cook I like to cook using ingredients that are in season.

Photographing in season is fun too. I like the warm moods you can

I got inspired to use bok choy as my back drop for this image
from a magazine.
It not only looks great it tastes great when sautéed. 

We planted some frisee lettuce
mesculin, and bok choy for spring.
Can't wait for those spring salads.

    This looks delicious!
    Thank you for your lovely, encouraging comment on my boys post! The crazies sure came out of the woodwork on that one! I finally started Pinterest too but I am afraid that it seems like one more thing to keep me in front of the screen - it's so fun.
