Soups, Salads, Dips, & Savory Recipes

Last week I posted about the Delicious Desserts and although I naturally gravitate to sweet over savory, it’s not fair to neglect savory in my weekly roundup of great food and recipes I’ve seen in the sphere.  Hopefully there’s something for everyone here: Soup, Salads, Dips, Savory Fare


Jenna’s Coconut Curried Sweet Potato Soup

Brown Eyed Bakers’ Classic Egg Salad

From my last post about Just Noochy & Food Trivia, I had no idea that my little mention that I had learned that Oreos were vegan would cause as many comments as it did.  I agree, they are filled with chemicals but many of you seem to like them anyway.  It’s okay.  I do, too.

Glad to know many of you love your nooch as much as I do.  Glad you liked my nooch recipes and yes, order it online as I suggested to save money.


1. Have you seen, made, or wanted to make any really awesome looking recipes from the blogosphere recently?

Do tell!

2. Weekend plans?

Nothing other than what I mentioned already:  Working, working out, taking care of Skylar, carrying on, business as usual, and possibly the farmer’s market on Sunday morning.  If I can wake up in time.

I am going to enjoy the wonderful weather we’re having.  80F and sunny, and the flowers are alive.  Yes, I will rub it in.  It’s why I pay through the nose to live here and don’t mind.

The hibiscus I saw on my running path today made me go back with my camera and snap a few pictures.

Enjoy your weekend!

  3. Wow, these are amazing pictures. I vote for second one Leanne’s Light Quinoa and Avocado Tabbouleh Verrines really looks great.

  5. Wow! I’m so honored for the shout-out! Thanks so much, Averie!

    I just read about Kath’s cookie dough oats shake, and that sounds nothing short of incredible! Too bad I have a leaky blender, or else I’d try it!

    • Well your post struck a chord with me…the pressure to keep up, to be better, have more views, to churn out post after post, the comparisons that inevitably happen…I love you for blogging about what you want to blog about and not getting too wrapped up in the rat race!


  6. Thank you, Averie!!! I am filled with sunshine myself to see the salad featured among so many other lovely recipes. I also was reading back on posts and was happy to see that your nooch arrived–what would life be, I ask you, without the stuff?


  7. The rain came early yesterday, but we still managed to get 3 hours of work done at the paintball field.
    Having to leave early allowed us to spend more time with family celebrating my SIL birthday. Woo-Hoo!

  8. There are so many great recipes around the blogosphere it’s hard to know where to start! I recently made ravioli with wonton wrappers and that turned out really well.
    As for weekend plans I took my son to his first baseball practice this morning, then late we went for dinner at a friend’s house. Tomorrow I don’t have much planned, just housework and errands, and I might make hot cross buns if I have time.
    Nice blog by the way! I can’t wait to read more.

  9. What gorgeous photos and recipes to boot! I am so grateful I came across your blog!

  10. Isn’t photography awesome?? And food + photography = bliss. I need a better camera, though.

    I have a “recipes to try” list a mile long. We have a few favorites, but other than that we have something new nearly all the time.

    The flower pics are gorgeous. My weekend plans are to stay warm lol. It’s back down in the 40s! I do think it would be worth a lot to live somewhere warm and pleasant!

  12. thanks for the comment! i will not give up on the nuggets, when i called (yes, i called trader joe’s), they said it was a manufacturer issues, so as soon as they find a new source they’ll make them again.

    i think my view would be much different if i lived in san diego. i live in loma linda, in the heart of the IE, aka pretty much the worst part of california :). while i do like it in jan-feb, i don’t like running my airconditioner from april onward. that’s funny you’re from minnesota, my boyfriend is from there and i’m from ohio….so I’ll be moving back to wisconsin for internal medicine residency in a few months, then he’ll join me next year when he’s done with his residency out here. what can i say, we’re both loyal midwesterners and want to be closer to home (plus avoid paying the CA cost of living! :) )

    i just got a vitamix for my birthday! can’t wait to try some of your recipes once it arrives this week.

    • have fun with your Vita! and yes, san diego is the creme de la creme of CA, well, IMO it is :) That, and the wine country and San Fran. But I like the weather down here better.

      Good luck w/ the move back to WI. One of my closest bloggie friends just finished her PhD and is moving back to WI this summer! She’s from there and ironically is ending up back there.

  13. Oh, I just love your blog! The photoes are incredible, and the food oh-so-tempting! Thank you so much for all your lovely recipes and ideas!

  14. Did you see this gluten free naan on the aartiparty blog?

    This is actually the last recipe I made from a blog. I’m woefully behind on my blog reading, obviously! (It was delicious!)

  15. All of those recipes look so good! Thank you for showcasing them on your blog :)
