Soups & Sweet Treat 1.17.13

I am smitten with Deb Perelman of Smitten Kitchen.  I have been a bit late jumping on the band wagon.  I heard an interview with her a few months ago which sparked my interest.  I then received her cookbook for Christmas- which I LOVE.  This led to me checking out her blog, which led to me reading old posts, and older posts, and older posts still.  I like her food, healthy but not too healthy, interesting, but not “foodie” infused.  She cooks food that I like to cook and food that I like to eat.  In the introduction to her book she says she came by what she does because “I just like to cook”.  That is also how I came by what I do- I just like cook.  This weeks soups & sweet treat are all adapted from the Smitten Kitchen Cookbook and blog.  Enjoy~
