In the Kitchen with Luanna Stewart
Thank you, Darlene, for inviting me to visit with your readers.
Comfort in a Bowl...
I don’t know about you but I’m ready for this winter to be over. Especially after that brief taste of spring we enjoyed a couple weeks ago. Temperatures hovering around 50F for several days lulled us all into thinking we could pack away our parkas and gloves and dust off our sandals.
Now, it could be that where you live you’re already wearing short flirty skirts and sleeveless tops, and if so I don’t want to hear about it. Up here in Maine we’ve been hit with daytime temperatures in the single digits. Not pleasant. And even though I’m starting to hunger for salads and grilled steak, what my body is craving is warming comfort food, the kind that sticks to your ribs, fills your belly, and makes you feel cosy and toasty.
This soup delivers every time. I got the recipe from my friend Julie more than ten years ago and it has been a staple in my meal planning ever since. One pot, half an hour, and boom! Supper is on the table. Serve with crusty bread to clean the bowl.
GIVEAWAY!Do you have a favourite soup recipe? One that you turn to when the day, for whatever reason, demands some comfort?
One commenter will receive a hand-knitted (by me) washcloth and a bar of handcrafted soap. (USA and Canada only.)
Let's get to know chef, Luanna!
Here's a peek at Lunna's book, If Wishes Were Earls
When a mysterious note directs Miss Miranda Large to a tiny village in Cornwall to find her heart's desire, she has no choice but to go. An enchanted keepsake heightens her curiosity. A snowstorm forces her to accept the hospitality of a sullen, albeit sexy and handsome, earl and Miranda's wish doesn't seem so out of reach.
Edward Penhallion, the 12th Earl of Claverlock, is not in the mood to start his search for a new wife. He wants to be left alone with his books and his dreams of revenge. But the arrival of a headstrong, sharp-tongued spinster forces him to play the charming host. Not a difficult task, given her intelligence and beauty. Suddenly, he’s not terribly eager for her to leave.
But as the snow falls and the winds blow, Edward discovers there’s more to Miranda than a lively wit and a lovely face. And Miranda wonders if the trappings of wealth are enough for true happiness.
