Book tip November 2018: Souped up

Souped up

During the warmer months I'll always make sure to have salads for my lunch as much as possible, but when those colder months hit I find myself craving warmer lunches as well so I make myself a nice homemade soup every Sunday evening, so I can enjoy some nice soup at work at the start of the week. So far I've made butternut squash & carrot soup, roasted tomato soup, white…

We've had another really cold spell these last few weeks here in Tipperary, with snow and ice on a few of them and today is yet another very cold day so I thought it was the perfect chance for me to share this Irish potato & leek soup recipe with you all to keep you warm throughout the weekend.

Creamy white asparagus soup with parsley & turmeric

Asparagus season is usually the highlight for a lot of foodies each year, and I am no different! The 'white gold' season usually runs from mid-late April until June, and during those few months a year, I try out as many asparagus recipes as I possibly can. This year I tried my very first white asparagus soup recipe ever! Though it's not that cold anymore outside, a lovely hot cup…
