These are recipes for simple, easy, homemade dishes. I make no promises about portion size or fat content, etc., but they are dishes that I have prepared and liked. I don't post pictures because I don't have fabulous lighting, nor a great camera. I can promise that I haven't just made things up without trying the recipe and this is all stuff other people have tried and no one spit anything out in disgust. Not yet, anyway! I don't take cool supporting photos of the steps along the way (but wait, are you telling me you are going to cook those nuts in the microwave in that METAL bowl?) but these are real recipes that a regular cook/baker should be able to figure out. I love the work of Deb at Smitten Kitchen - she provides the whole package!!! Good food, witty comments and lovely photos. If you want to see a REAL food blog, check her out.

Pasta Cheese Soup

Any pasta shape will work, although the original called for macaroni.  This is about enough for two.

2 oz pasta
1 T olive oil
1 small onion, minced
1 small celery stalk, minced
1 medium carrot, minced
2 T flour
2 c broth
3 oz shredded cheddar
2 T Parmesan
1 c milk

Cook pasta, drain and put into bowl.  Put oil and three veggies into pot and saute until soft but not brown.  Add flour and cook a minute or so further.  Add broth and bring to a boil, stirring well.  Remove from heat.  Stir in cheeses until melted.  Add milk and pasta, then serve.
