Slow Cooker Polish Pickle Soup

No, I'm not pregnant again, thank you very much. I just love pickles. And soups. And this brilliant combination of the two. My Polish friend M. is the one who introduced me to this dish. M. is a medical professional, a talented musician, a great cook and an all around funny guy. He has this… Continue reading Slow Cooker Polish Pickle Soup

Cream of Mushroom soup

  I have made this soup 2 weeks ago, just before falling sick. It was a spur of the moment, what-do-I-have-in-the-fridge kind of thing. The result however, was gold. A definite keeper. Easy, economic, good-looking and delicious ( Sounds like a personal add now, doesn't it ). This soup is soooo much better then your regular salty, chemical, canned… Continue reading Cream of Mushroom soup
