I am a big believer in eating foods that are in season. Summer is all about fresh from the garden vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, squash and berries galore. During the winter I search for warm stews, soups, and roasts with root vegetables and leafy greens. One of my go to winter soups is a little different take on the classic Chicken Noodle Soup. Instead of egg noodles, I use tortellini and I also add some sweet potato. It acts as a thickener and gives it a sweetness that my four year old son absolutely craves.
Today is the official launch of the Helen’s Kitchen website. This has been a long time coming and I am so excited to share my delicious cookies with the world and also write about all things kitchen and food! This is a two in one entry because I wanted to share with you one of my favorite food blogs where I found just about the best chocolate cake I have ever put in my mouth.
