Cream of Baby Bella Mushroom Soup

I love cream of mushroom soup, especially baby bella or portabella mushroom soup.  Of course the heavy cream tastes fantastic but I wanted to cut down on the fat so I used half-n-half.  FYI, heavy cream is typically 38% fat and half-n-half is 12% fat.  Quite a reduction in fat and still have the wonderfull creaminess of the soup.  I hope that you give this recipe a try sometime, it is really creamy and delicious.

White Asparagus Soup

White asparagus is a spring time delicacy in Holland and Germany.  It is different than the green in that you have to peel each asparagus stock to remove the fiberous outer layer before getting to the goodness inside.  It's taste is a much milder flavor that its green cousin.   You should give this a try if you can find the white asparagus in your local market.  It is so delicious!

Peppered Steak

Peppered steak is an old standby meal.  When you have soccer or any activity after school and need to come home to a home cooked meal, just thrown this is the oven or a crock pot before you leave.  Dinner is ready when you get home!
