to do. to see. to hear. to love

haven’t been cooking much these days for the blog. between traveling, visitors, craft fairs, work, side projects, and ultimate life contemplation… just haven’t been all over it like i was.  i still feed myself, just nothing spectacular to photograph. i have been ditching my weekly dose of barefoot contesssa too.  i did make this soup though. simple, tasty, and healthy.  healthy…is always on my mind these days.  i was inspired from a martha recipe and added a few ingredients myself.  it is kind of somewhere between pho and mexican soup. you be the judge!


2 chicken breasts on the bone

2-3 carrots

1 white onion

2 garlic cloves

4 cups of water

1-2 cups of quinoa



green onion

1 tbsp salt and 1 tsp pepper


boil the chicken breasts with the carrots and onion, chopped up, with 4 cups of water. add the salt and pepper. probably need to boil for about 45 minutes…or until the chicken is done.  take out the chicken breasts and shred the meat.  discard the carrots, onion, and garlic from the broth.  cook some quinoa and add to the broth with the shredded chicken.  garnish the soup with as much cilantro, lime, green onion, and sriracha as you like! add more salt if desired.

i think tofu or shrimp would make a lovely soup here as well. just use vegetable broth as the base.
