    Mark it in your calendars: it is officially soup weather. I love to stock my freezer with fresh soups and enjoy them as the temperatures continue to drop. I recently tried a cauliflower soup made with sweet potatoes, yielding a lovely autumn-orange color, but any potatoes you have on hand will do.

    1 large head of cauliflower, cut into florets
    2 yellow potatoes, chopped
    2 leeks, white parts only, chopped
    4 cups chicken stock
    ¼ cup heavy cream
    ½ stick butter, divided
    1 teaspoon each salt and pepper, plus more to taste

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350 F.

    In a baking sheet, toss cauliflower pieces, potatoes, 2 tablespoons melted butter, salt and pepper. Bake for up to an hour, until cauliflower and potatoes are easily-pierced. If necessary, tent with foil if vegetables start to brown.

    In a large saucepan, heat remaining butter and cook onion and leeks until soft and translucent, about 10 minutes. Add cauliflower, potatoes, and chicken stock. Simmer another 10 minutes until vegetables are soft.

    Let cool slightly and working in batches, purée in a blender or blend with a hand-mixer to desired thickness. Return to pan to re-heat and stir in cream. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

    In my house, summertime means fresh vegetables and great salads. Salads are a quick and easy way to add splash to just about any meal, and to add extra nutrients to your diet. They are packed with fiber, vitamins and minerals, and can brighten your palate, along with your meal.
    Here's an easy recipe for one of my favorite, delicious summertime salads. It is quick, easy and very flexible. It can be made as is, or adapted to your favorite vegetables, or to what you have on hand. However you make it, it's sure to help keep you and your guests happy and healthy and smiling all summer long.
    Ingredients:
    Red leaf or green leaf lettuce Heirloom tomato wedges Organic carrot, shredded Red bell peppers, sliced thin Avocado, peeled and sliced Sunflower seeds, roasted Cucumber, peeled and sliced Cilantro, in small sprigs (as desired) Directions:
    Rinse lettuce and pat dry with a paper towel or spin it in a salad spinner.
    Tear lettuce into pieces of desired size and toss into a large salad bowl or individual serving bowls.
    Place desired quantities of other fresh ingredients into the bowl(s). Top with sunflower seeds. I've found that adding some cilantro sprigs to my salad really makes it pop with flavor. If you don't like cilantro, feel free to skip it.
    In fact, you can feel free to add and subtract any ingredients at will. Add your favorites, or skip what you don't like. This particular salad offers numerous variations, all delicious.
    Serve with honey-mustard dressing on the side.
    Honey-Mustard Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
    Ingredients:
    1 cup olive oil 1 clove garlic, peeled & sliced in half 1 tablespoon dijon mustard 1 tablespoon honey 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar salt pepper Directions:
    Rub the sides of a bowl with garlic, then discard. In the bowl whisk together mustard, honey and vinegar. Slowly whisk in the olive oil. Season with salt and pepper. Scale recipe as needed.

    Celiac.com 02/11/2015 - Broth is the new black. Read the food magazines and blogs and you will inevitably come upon an article about the benefits of broth. But, unlike so many health foods, broth is not an overhyped fad food.
    Broth can be digested by every body, and broth is healthy for everyone.
    For people with celiac disease or gluten-intolerance, broth can be part of a diet that promotes healing and wellness of the gut, the immune system, the bones and more.
    From baby to granny and from sickest to healthiest, broth has something for everyone.
    Ingredients:
    4 pounds beef marrow and knuckle bones 3 pounds meaty rib or neck bones 4 or more quarts cold filtered water ½ cup cider vinegar 3 onions, coarsely chopped 3 carrots, coarsely chopped 3 celery stalks, coarsely chopped several sprigs of fresh thyme, tied together 1 teaspoon dried peppercorns, crushed l bunch flat parsley, chopped Directions:
    Place the knuckle and marrow bones into a very large pot with vinegar and cover with water. Let sit for one hour.
    Meanwhile, place the meaty bones in a roasting pan and brown at 350 degrees in the oven.
    When well browned, add to the pot along with the vegetables. Pour the fat out of the roasting pan, add cold water to the pan, set over a high flame and bring to a boil, stirring with a wooden spoon to loosen up coagulated juices.
    Add this liquid to the pot. Top with water, if needed, just enough to cover the bones.
    **NOTE: Remember to keep the liquid no higher than one inch below the rim of the pot, as the volume expands slightly during cooking.
    Bring pot to a boil.
    A large amount of frothy scum will rise to the top, and it is important to remove this with a spoon or mesh skimmer. After you have skimmed, reduce heat and add the thyme and crushed peppercorns.
    Simmer stock for at least 12 and as long as 72 hours. Just before finishing, add the parsley and simmer another 10 minutes.
    At this point, the broth will look more like a scary brown liquid with globs of gelatinous and fatty material. It won’t even smell very good.
    However, all you need to do is to strain it properly to get a delicious and nourishing clear broth that you can use for myriad soups and stews and other dishes.
    So, remove bones with tongs or a slotted spoon, and strain the stock through a sieve or mesh strainer and into a large bowl.
    Refrigerate the bowl and, once it’s cold, remove the hardened fat from the top.
    Transfer to smaller containers, and freeze for long-term storage.
