First stop: Chicken and Gnocchi Dumplings

Who loves a weight loss journey???   The answer is simple.  ONLY the people on the outside looking in, at first.  After a little bit, it becomes more fun for the ones that are actually living the journey.  With that being said, my fiancée (here on out known as my King) and I are going…

Gruyere Butternut Soup? Yes, please!

   I do believe that one of the many beauties of food is that we are constantly able to have new experiences by either trying new foods while out or cooking something new. Now, I don’t remember the first time I tried Gruyere, but it was a beautiful moment. It’s the cheese I tell others…

You’ve Got to Believe

I wonder sometimes if we really think about what we put on hold in life because we aren’t prepared to take the risk it requires. Maybe it’s not even the risk, but it’s the belief in ourselves that we don’t quite know how to harness these days. I can’t even begin to count how many…

Sundays with Friends: Kelli and her Crawfish Soup

I’ve had this one in my back pocket for a long time now, and frankly, I have my usual story about being incredibly busy in life.  However, I’ve also been waiting for colder months.  A very dear friend of The Onyx Plate sent in this recipe back in June, and I couldn’t wait for it…

Nothing soothes the soul better than good ol’ Chicken Noodle Soup…wait…what did you say?  Someone already made that publicly known?….with a book?  Darn, I thought I was on to something…oh well…a book doesn’t taste this good though…*smiles* I have been feeling a bit under the weather the past couple of days, maybe more so today…

Taco Soup for Dummies…

No, I’m not calling you guys dummies.  I am simply using this as a reference to say that I think this is one of the easiest soups I have ever put together.  I can’t begin to even tell you how easy it is to make.  Let’s just put it this way….EASY!  You can adjust the…

Potato Soup Bar…

Let’s face it people, you can’t beat a good homemade Potato Soup!  It’s an easy to personalize soup for each individual.  Every family makes theirs different with their own special touch.  But, basically it’s the same base: cream or milk (I use 2% low-fat milk), potatoes, butter, and salt and pepper to taste. I’m all about…

A Warm and Fuzzy Moment

We all have that longing for childhood memories to come bounding back into our lives with full abrupt force to shake us to our core and remind us we are still breathing.  It helps to come home to a wonderful moment of clarity when warming up a homemade treat from a parent or grandparent.  My…
