As a fun way to raise awareness, the 50 food bloggers have created an incredible “progressive dinner” which is running between 12/6-12/14.

Take advantage of the fresh vegetables that are in right now, and then use great quality vegetable stock and canned tomatoes….

Summer Vegetable Soup This is a delicate summer soup that I made for my daughter. She has been asking for soup, and I thought I would use up some of the gorgeous summer produce that I have been stock piling. The base of the soup (onions, celery and carrots) is spruced up by using the…
