Super Soups For Baby Boomer Family and Friends

Soups Warm You Up!
Soups Warm You Up!

I love soups. They feel good in the winter, satisfying and easy complete meals. So, I have decided to learn how to make more soups this winter.

The other great thing about soups is they are great for taking to someone who is sick and shut in. What a great gift for the family.

I am excited about pulling my old crockpot out and letting it go on auto while I am working away on the computer.

There are other great things that can be done with soups and please share them as a comment.

This will, I hope, be a series where you can share your favorate soup recipes. Be a guest blogger and I will post it. Not only will I get to be a boomer blogger that makes great soups but it will provide blog soup food for many days.

So, if you want to be a guest blogger just email me with your soup recipe.Email me, rosiehorner(at)

This is going to be fun

How Long Can I Keep Certain Food in The Refrigerator or Freezer?

If you ever wondered how long that leftover can be leftover or the salmon can stay in the freezer go to Still Tasty to find the answers.

I mean this site is a powerfully needed resource for every one that does store their food in the snow. (Although that can be an option at times)

The site already has a high page rank of 5 out of 10. It allows you to ask questions and get the answers. It is easy to navigate and has great website design.

Whereas, the site is still very new, I could not find any information about the true genius behind the site. But they do list their primary sources for information. Just go to the footer and click on “sources”.

So book mark Still Tasty and keep your self and family healthy. This will really be inportant during the holiday cooking season.

Chef Jesse Therapy

The other day I attended a cooking class by Chef Jesse at the Adult School in Maplewood, NJ. This class was great therapy after a long hard work day. My brain was tired, feet were tired and just plain too much life drama.

I joined others who enjoyed watching and listening to Chef Jesse as he prepared a special meal while teaching us tips about sources, gravy, marinades and grape oil.

I did not know the other folks but when the class was over I felt that we should all do this every week at different homes. I think that if we met just one more session ,instead of one night, it would have happened.

Well, the meal was awesome so when I saw this annoucement about his upcoming radio broadcast with Joan Hamburg I just had to share it with all my readers.

Chef Jesse’s Pumpkin Bisque will be featured on ‘“The Joan Hamburg” Show” for recipe of the week, Wed Oct 28, Listen live @ 12:25 pm  for phone interview with Chef Jesse talking about the recipe and hints and tips for the home cook. Wor radio 710 HD AM

Please note that I simple love listening to Joan Hamburg. She is refreshingly honest and informative. It is going to be a great show.

Now, I plan to cook plenty of soups this winter. I am not a soup maker but hey, I’m a baby boomer and it will be part of my boomer therapy. Fun, fellowship and fantastic hips. (I mean slimmer hips)

Seriously, soups are a wonderful meal and warms up the bones. If you get a chance listen to Chef Jesse. I think he is probably the James Brown of the kitchen. My dream is to one day I will be able to afford him as a personal chef for my family , folks sick and shut in,and seniors who deserve great food but no longer cooking much.

Trust me Chef Jesse is great and later I will share more. But if you listen to the show let me know how you liked it.

You can follow Chef Jesse on Facebook.
