5 Soup Recipes to Warm You Up This Winter

January 9th, 2017

SoupRedwood City might enjoy some mild winters, but things can still get chilly every now and then. And nothing warms you up better than a hot bowl of hearty soup! Check out these five delicious recipes sure to make your winter days a whole lot warmer.

1. Creamy Tomato Basil

A grown-up version of a childhood favorite, this vegetarian soup combines a rich mouthfeel with some subtle Italian-inspired flavors. This wholesome helping of comfort food pairs great with the panini-pressed grilled cheese bites also covered in the link.

2. Andouille Sausage, Kale and Bean

For more adventurous tastes, this recipe incorporates a host of different veggies with flavorful sausage for a healthy easy-to-prepare meal. This is one dish that goes fairly light on the seasoning, with the major notes coming from the major ingredients. While winter doesn’t generally bring to mind fresh produce, all of the vegetables used here actually grow well throughout the season.

3. Cheesy Chicken Alfredo

What’s better than some tortellini and chicken smothered in cheese? The answer is that same dish transformed into a buttery winter soup. For a vegetarian option, swap in vegetable broth for chicken stock along with eggplant for chicken breast. Also, feel free to substitute the tortellini with any other pasta of your choice. This is a versatile recipe you can modify depending on which ingredients you have handy.

4. Bacon Beer Cheese

For another rich, creamy concoction to fill your bowl, take a look at this recipe for bacon beer cheese soup. While pretty much the opposite of what you could call a health food, it does make a perfect meal for cheese lovers. After all, this “soup” can be described as one big pot of melted cheddar cheese.

5. Tortilla With Black Bean

Tortilla soup is a traditional recipe that’s simple to make. Depending on availability and personal taste, you may choose to throw in fresh tomato and corn or simply use the canned and frozen versions the recipe calls for. This soup can also be easily modified into a vegetarian version by subbing in vegetable broth instead of chicken.

5 Tasty Recipes for National Chocolate Day

October 15th, 2016

National Chocolate Day is on October 28, and it’s going to be one tasty 24-hours for many. The best part about chocolate is that most everyone seems to agree that if you eat it in reasonable quantities, it can lower blood pressure, cholesterol and the risk of heart disease. Plus, it boosts your mood! If you live in the apartments in Redwood City, check out these 5 recipes and then enjoy in a few indulgences (with some milk, of course.)

1. Too Much Chocolate Cake

It almost sounds like a challenge, doesn’t it? It’s devil’s food cake, pudding, sour cream, with chocolate chips, and it’s incredibly easy to make. All you have to do is mix and stir and use your bundt pan to put it all together. It looks incredible and it will be a hit with both kids and adults.

2. Chocolate Top Crispy Bars

It’s basically a Rice Krispie Treats but with chocolate on top (and they’re better than what you’ll find in the store.) Butter, cereal, marshmallows and chocolate get a workout to turn into these gooey treats with a chocolate finish.

3. Chocolate Chip Cookies

Simple and classic, is there anything truly better than a warm cookie in your mouth? Baking fresh cookies from scratch may be a dying art, but you can bring it back with the ultimate recipe for cookies. These cookies are amazing, but you may have to give yourself a lecture to save yourself from eating all the batter.

4. Chocolate Oat Fondant

Anytime you want to feel fancy or French, you can tote these treats to your next gathering. It may take a little longer and a little more effort, but this combination of sugar, cocoa and dark chocolate is heavenly. And you get some oats in there to balance out the flavors (and make you feel slightly less guilty.)

5. Chocolate Muffins

If you’ve never had a morning that justified eating chocolate for breakfast, then congratulations. But if you’re like most people, and could use a bit of an excuse to have some muffin with your coffee, try these to put a little spring in your step and courage in your day.

Eating and loving chocolate is not something to be ashamed of, and those who live and cook in Redwood City apartments should celebrate this day in fine spirits.
