Leftover Turkey Gumbo Recipe with Shrimp and Brown Rice

Every year after thanksgiving I have a ton of leftover food.  Whether it be mashed potatoes, vegetables or turkey, it’s a mess of food that could feed the entire neighborhood.  I usually eat a few turkey sandwiches or make turkey pot pies, but man this year I’m totally going to change things up!  I’m going to make a turkey gumbo with shrimp, andouille, ham, and brown rice!  I’m sick of eating the same old thing, in fact if our family wasn’t so married to turkey I’d be eating a big ol’ prime rib roast!  What I need to do is…

Classic French Onion Soup Recipe with Crostini and Gruyere Cheese

 There is not much out there that makes me happier than a delicious warm pot of soup, and more specifically French Onion Soup.  If you make it you appreciate the robust flavors even more knowing you spent at least 15 minutes crying over peeling and slicing onions and then again when caramelizing them over an hour while constantly stirring.  Onions in there raw form are great on a burger, in ceviche or possibly with tartar, but onions that are caramelized belong on just about anything, including a soup. The first time I made a classic French Onion Soup I was…

Hickory Smoked White Chicken Chili Recipe

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of BUSH’S Beans. The opinions and text are all mine. There are few cooking techniques I’ve enjoyed lately more than the art of smoking food. Not only does the food come out so flavorful, tender and juicy, I literally get a standing ovation from my neighbors from the wonderful smells that fill our block. Smoking food is one of the oldest forms of cooking, and it was mostly used to preserve meats since back in early centuries of the world there was no refrigeration. Nowadays it’s used to incorporate delicious…

Homemade Italian Wedding Soup Recipe with Moroccan Cous Cous

I say it all the time, but soup is hands down my favorite thing to make across any cuisine, cooking technique, or course.  This Homemade Italian Wedding Soup Recipe with Moroccan Cous Cous is as classic as it comes with a small twist using some baby spinach and the smaller cous cous.  One of my favorite things about soups is how incredibly versatile they are with the opportunity to swap out or enhance a few ingredients without skipping a beat in the flavor category.  Often times changing out ingredients in soup can make things better and more customizable for someone’s…

Ribollita Soup Recipe with Chicken and Kale

RRRRRRibollita, say it with me!!! You have to roll those r’s if you’re going to be making this Tuscan Italian soup sometime in the near future.  I know I say this like all the flippin’ time but honestly this Ribollita soup recipe was one of the better soups I’ve made/had in a minute.  It was hearty, it was tasty, and if I do say so myself it’s pretty dang healthy…  I’m sure though that my version of healthy is different than yours so take it for what it’s worth.  In any event this soup is indigenous to the Tuscany region…

Lentil Soup Recipe with Sausage and Kale

Soup is and has always been my favorite thing to make so now that Fall is setting in, this Lentil Soup Recipe with Sausage and Kale hit the spot.  I go on a soup making hiatus throughout the summer because really there isn’t much to make during those months that is satisfying when it’s hot out, outside of gazpacho.  I even tried to do a cook book recently that is about all things soup, but unfortunately as you may have guessed that concept has been beaten passed a pulp.  However, that won’t stop me from making it! I’ve been into…

Mulligatawny Soup Recipe

I Remember the first time I had a Mulligatawny Soup Recipe.  My mind and more importantly my taste buds were absolutely blown away.  I was playing sous chef at a really nice restaurant in St. Louis, Missouri called Cardwells.  Our chef loved to make soup and dang was he good at it.  After about 2 months of working there he made Mulligatawny and I lost it…  I would try a small cup of his soup everyday and everything was always delicious, but when this came along I didn’t know what to do with myself. These were flavors I had never tasted…
