A Parade of Soups to Warm You Up

Is it freezing where you are…literally? So much of the country right now is under so many feet of snow…and a nice, hot bowl of soup may be just what is called for, and perhaps a Hot Buttered Rum to boot or a one way ticket to somewhere warm.  If I were near you, I would gladly bring you over a pot of one of my soups…I love to make soup. It’s therapeutic if you ask me.

So here they are in all of their glory, my semi-famous S&C soup line-up…
Sausage and Kale Soup with potatoes and carrots…so full of heartiness that it will surely knock you out of your winter blues.

A Cinco de Mayo Inspired Taco Party

Need some South of the Border inspiration to celebrate in style this Sunday? Then you have come to the right place my friends! We are having a taco party, and of course, Sweet and Crumby wouldn’t be Sweet and Crumby, if we didn’t add a few sweet treats as well.

I think your Cinco de Mayo party would be a hit if you served a platter of these delectable Grilled Fish Tacos with mango salsa!

A Book Review: Roots by Diane Morgan {And Raw Beet Slaw!}

Roots, deep below the ground, burrowing and then sprouting and finally like the ugly duckling, becoming something quite beautiful even if only from within. Roots are the beginning of everything, connect us, keep us hooked to our past as we gingerly step out into the world.

Grandma’s Noodle Kugel

Every Jewish cook needs a tried and true old family favorite Noodle Kugel recipe in her (or his!) back pocket…one that is easy to make and even easier to eat. A Kugel that conjures up either festive Shabbat dinners, or in my case, Sunday dinners with my grandparents.

Mock Hollandaise in a Real World

I live just outside of Los Angeles, and I actually love it—minus the stand-still, mind numbing traffic. There’s absolutely nothing good that can be said about that. I am someone who needs action to be happy, a life that is constantly on the go, and living near LA gives that to me, in spades.

British Inspired Jam Scones and Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Typical Saturday morning at my house: Five a.m. rolls around, and my eyes slowly open up to glance casually at the clock. BIG MISTAKE! Once my eyelids move, my Golden Retriever, Sadie, trots over to my side and sits down, waiting to be petted or scratched. If I don’t acquiesce quickly enough, she begins scratching herself or biting at a paw and jingling her maniacal collar until am I forced to pet her, hoping it will quiet her down. Continue reading

Fourth of July Round-Up

Cuz I have been in the lazy groove of summer and living life large a little too much lately, I don’t have a new post for the Fourth of July holiday but I do have some tried and true faves and I also have seen some pretty snazzy stuff around the blogosphere. So enjoy…and have a wonderful, tasty and SAFE Fourth. BTW…all the gorgeous photos you see below are stolen from the blogs mentioned and linked to in this post.

How about starting the day with my Red Velvet Pancakes and cream cheese dipping sauce (that’s breakfast code for frosting). These would surely wake up the family and begin the celebration on the right foot.
