You are not alone, I can not eat sweet things like that, sweet potatoes, peas, cooked carrots,

if the peas and carrots are in a nice stew that is different, i can tel myself that they are not peas and carrots.

So you are not whacko!!

I'm definately going to try out that Oysters Rockefeller Stew recipe when the temperature gets a little more brisk and the leaves on the maples have turned completely.

Last night's supper was oyster soup for us, and did it ever taste good. We hadn't had oyster soup for ages so this just hit the spot, on a really cold evening after having snowflakes swirling around throughout the afternoon.

Had enough left over for my breakfast this morning. I like most everything for breakfast as long as it isn't cereal or bacon and eggs!

Oyster soup made with Plugra (real butter), half and half, salt and pepper. How simple to make, how delicious to eat.

I was browsing through this book at my father-in-law's last weekend. (He had invited us down for beef stew - actually, it was the Potato and Beef Soup recipe in said book.)

Practical Cookery Soups
Parragon 2000
Dempsey Parr (may be a British publisher?)

It may be out of print, but a quick online search looks like it won't be too hard to get ahold of. I haven't ordered one yet, but plan to.
He got his on a bargain/closeout table.
The wonderful thing about this book is that each recipe gets a whole page to itself, with pictures!

this is something handed down from my russian grandma's side of the family, but there is no recipe with measurements to record - all amounts are approximate, please forgive and make according to taste! (it should be sweet/sour)...this is real eastern-european peasant food, warms the soul as well as the body!

Cabbage Soup

2 lbs. lamb neck bones/stewing meat, or combo
cooking oil of some kind
paprika(sweet hungarian kind)
1 large head of cabbage,shredded
3 onions, chopped
2 lemons, juiced
3 tblspns sugar
1-2 28-oz cans diced tomatoes in sauce
1can chicken broth
salt, pepper

put a small amount of oil in a heavy stockpot on medium-high heat,put
lamb meat/bones in pot, and season with salt, pepper, and a good amount of paprika. brown meat on all sides. add onions halfway through browning process. when meat is browned (about 8 min), add cabbage on top - let it cook for about 5 minutes, then add lemon juice, sugar and one can of chicken broth, stir well. let it cook for about 10 minutes more, and add 1 can of tomatoes. at this point you should have some broth and alot of cabbage/other stuff - turn the heat down to simmer, cover partially, and let it cook for another 30-45 minutes or so. if the soup is too thick for your liking, add some tomatoes, more broth, or water and let it simmer some more.if it is too thin, let it cook down some more, and remember to add less broth next time! add salt and pepper to taste, and serve with my mom's sticky rice...

My Mom's Sticky Rice

4 cups cooked white rice
3 tblspns butter
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tblspns sugar
salt and pepper

mix all ingredients together, add salt and pepper, and put in a buttered glass casserole dish. bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until top is browned. (we used to fight over the crunchy top of the rice as kids!) serve on the side with cabbage soup, or put cabbage soup over it...

hope this works out for some adventurous soul!

Here's a new favorite of mine. I've made it about ten times since last year.

Sausage, Bean and Broccoli Rabe Soup

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 pound Italian bulk sausage -Half hot, half sweet
1 medium onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 large potato, peeled and chopped into small dice
2 cloves garlic, chopped
2 cans of cannelini beans, drained
Salt and pepper
4 cups chopped broccoli rabe and greens
2 quarts chicken stock
Ditalini or other small pasta shape
Grated Parmigiano-Reggiano to pass at table

Heat medium soup pot over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and sausage and brown. Add vegetables and beans. Season with salt and pepper. Cook mixture 5 minutes to begin to soften the vegetables. Meanwhile, cook ditalini until al dente and drain. Add rabe to the vegetables and wilt. Add stock and cover pot. Raise heat and bring soup to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook 10 minutes, then add cooked ditalini and continue cooking for another 5 minutes. Adjust seasonings and serve soup with the grated cheese, for topping.

Johnnymolson, do you make Emeril's oysters Rockefeller soup? That comes close to the one I got from the chef in NOLA at the airport Hilton. I think this is one of the best soups that ever came down the pike. Rather than the liquor, I use a little tarragon in mine, since the flavor is so close (anise.) I have a pint of Maryland oysters in the freezer. They will be soup by tomorrow.

Ann & everyone else,

I think I did it. I think I perfected my beef and barley soup. Here it is let me know what you think.

10 cups beef broth
1 1/2 - 2 pounds beef bottom round, cut into 1 inch cubes
1 (28oz) can diced tomatoes with juice
1 large onion, thinly sliced
2 medium carrots, sliced
2 celery stalks, sliced
1 pound corn (I used the corn from this summer I put away)
1 pkg frozen lima beans or peas (I think about 10 oz)
1/2 cup pearl barley
1 bay leaf
1 pkg frozen green beans (again appx 10 oz)
1 TBSP worcestershire sauce
salt to taste
cayenne to taste
black pepper to taste

In a large stock pot over medium heat, combine the tomatoes, 9 cups of the broth, beef, onion, carrots, celery, corn, limas, barley and bay leaf

Cover and bring to a boil

reduce heat to medium low, simmer partially covered, until the meat, barley and vegetables are tender, about 1 1/2 hours

Using ladle remove any foam that forms during the cooking time

add more broth if too much has evaporated

add the beans and stir, add more broth if necessary simmer for 15 to 20 minutes more.

add worcestershire and seasonings, simmer another 5 minutes

serve and enjoy

Donna, Donna,

Could I please have your oyster soup recipe? It sounds wonderful. And tell me, would it still be all right as long as I used unsalted butter? I'm afraid Plugra is a little bit out of my reach.....

I took this picture when I was at the farmers' market this morning - my idea of a perfect beginning for split pea soup.

Hello All,
I'm not a soup maker, but my wonderful wife is super at making and creating soups.
Last week she made a soup that was a delight...her it is...
3 tbs. of olive oil
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 to 2 cups of mushrooms, chopped (your choice of mushrooms)
1/4 pound or so of prosciutto, chopped
1 head of escarole (or other bitter green) roughly chopped
2 or 3 cans of chicken broth
optional: 1 can of cannellini beans (drained and rinsed)

Heat olive oil and saute garli. About 1 minute, add mushrooms and prosciutto, and continue
to saute for about 1 or 2 minutes. Add escarole, ( and a little more oil if necessary)
and saute until escarole is wilted. Add broth, (and cannellini beans if using); heat through or
bring to boil. Serve with grated parmesan cheese or romano on top.

Enjoy,
Fieldthistle

How about some homemade Pasta e Fagioli.

White Navy or Great Northern Beans
One can Italian Stewed Tomatoes
Three Cloves Garlic
One Large or Two Small Carrots
One Large Stalk of Celery
Basil
Oregano
Red Pepper
Salt & Pepper
Olive Oil

My mother would buy raw beans and start from scratch. I use three cans of Bush's beans rinsed in a colander, cover with water and add a can of chopped Italian Stewed Tomatoes. Throw in a little Olive Oil, finely chopped Garlic, Carrots, Celery, a dash of Basil, Oregano, Red Pepper, and S&P. Simmer for an hour, cool it down, and put in the refrigerator for at least one day. When you’re ready to eat it heat the beans, boil up some thin spaghetti, and mix together. Make a small salad, cut up some crusty bread, and you’re good to go.
