Rice noodles

My mom makes a great tomato soup from scratch, but since my parents eat it so often, sometimes it is fun to put a spin on something so familiar. She adds long rice noodles; they need to be cooked prior to adding them to the soup. Although challenging while dishing the soup, the noodles add a little surprise to the dish.

Favorite thing about Grandpa

My favorite thing about my grandpa is that he owns a Nespresso machine. Just kidding! That's only my second favorite thing! We sit around his huge round table, drink espresso, eat cake and look through old photos. These are truly the best times.

My very own Panera

Lunches at Panera Bread Co are one of my favorite things to do when visiting friends in the Twin Cities, although I do realize that Panera Bread is a chain... But I love their soups so much! Who knew they have recipes posted on their website, so close within my laptop's reach!
Here is Jeffrey enjoying his share of the tasty Tomato, Cheese and Bread soup. Yums!
