French Onion Soup

I really, really love soup. Usually my preference leans towards spicy soups, packed with different, complex and intense flavors like a pozole or a kimchi-tofu jigae, but every now and then I crave nothing but a simple French Onion Soup with bold yet clean flavors. I realized the other day that we didn't have a recipe for this awesome soup, so I set out to ... read more

Green Curry Noodle Soup

It's been raining here in LA! AND a storm is supposedly coming again which means even more rain! It's almost as if right now we are having seasons, and it's awesome. Raining days equal cozy and warm food. For that, I always turn to soup or pasta, which makes this Green Curry Noodle soup just perfect because its noodles and soup. Although this soup is ... read more

Roasted Sweet Potato and Leek Soup

Happy New Year Everyone! As I've been saying for the last few days..."it's a New Year!....with a not so new me!" lol. I'm not being cynical or negative, I promise. This year there isn't anything specific I'm trying to work on...not that there isn't plenty for me to work on, because oh boy there surely are LOTS of things for me to 'work on', but ... read more

Garlic Ginger Beef Noodle Soup

This time of year gets me so excited because of how cozy everything gets, especially the food! I love soup in general, but when the weather is chilly and crisp I have to have it multiple times a week, no questions asked. One of my favorite things in particular is a hearty noodle soup and today we have a simple, but totally satisfying Ginger and ... read more

Creamy Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

This is my new cozy soup. Creamy, potato-y (gnocchi! YES!) and with chicken. So you get all the good stuff, in one bowl, AND it's soup, which means you must serve it with crusty bread, and dip the heck out of it. Not much is better than dipping crusty bread into creamy soup on cold days. Right? Probably best to make a big batch. ♥ ... read more

Pumpkin Beer Cheese Soup

Hi! We know everyone is thinking "ok, enough with all the pumpkin stuff," and yes, I agree. When you start having a whole section dedicated to pumpkin stuff at the grocery store, it's starts to get overwhelming. Which is why we thought this was a good time to remind you of this pumpkin beer cheese soup recipe we have, because it's a good one. And ... read more

Spicy Red Curry and Coconut Noodle Soup with Shrimp

As usual the weather in LA has been really funky, from 80˚F and sunny skies one day to a brisk 60˚F and overcast weather the next. It's always changing, day by day. Lately I've been craving noodles like crazy, specifically of the Asian variety (and nope, not preggos!). So with the combination of fluctuating temps and my weird noodle cravings, I've been making a lot ... read more

Creamy Chicken and Farro Soup

I hope everyone had a lovely holiday season! Whether you celebrated it or not, I hope it was a relaxing time for all. I got to see my new nephew again and it was AH-MAZING! It's incredible to see how big he's gotten in a short 1 1/2 months! Dexter (my dog) is still not thrilled about losing his spot as the only "child" in ... read more

Hearty White Bean and Kale Soup

I’ve been semi-living off this hearty white bean and kale soup for the past two months. I know it’s probably annoying to hear someone living in warm, sunny weather to complain about the weather, especially when the rest of the nation is going through subzero temperatures, but I can’t help it. I miss the chill of the winter season. Yes I do. It’s hard to ... read more

Shanghai Soup Dumplings

Soup dumplings are one of our favorite things to go and eat. These little babies really melt in your mouth, and the trick for that is such an easy one. Geletanized stock...or Aspic! When we realized this, our minds were totally blown. What a good trick!! These dumplings are really easy to make, so don’t let the folding and crimping situations of the wonton wrappers ... read more

Spicy Black Bean Soup

It has been unbearably hot in Los Angeles the last couple of days. I get really angry when I’m too hot, and my face is in a permanent state of red, and I sweat too much. I hate it. Hate it bad. Ironically, we are posting a soup recipe today. Something I would totally not eat during this weather. So I would like to dedicate ... read more

Roasted Cauliflower and Parsnip Soup

Did everyone have a good Christmas? I was in Idaho, where it wasn’t as cold as I would have thought. There was snow on the ground, but nothing fresh. It was the kind of snow that was crunchy, and for some reason I always think about freezer burn when I encounter this kind of snow. My favorite part is this beef rib roast my step ... read more

Egg Drop Soup

There are two kinds of people, people who turn red when they are embarrassed, and people that do not. I can feel the blood travel from torso into my face when I am embarrassed enough to turn red, and I know it is happening. There is nothing I can do about it, and it sucks. The thing about turning red is you can’t just act ... read more

Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Hi hi hi! It's been one of those weeks for me where you run around and wake up in the middle of the night with thoughts of things to do and things to buy. I just moved into a new studio that is super awesome, and it makes me feel important. I will post pictures soon. The new studio is where all the new SFB ... read more

Creamy Roasted Tomato & Basil Soup

Hi All! The very first time I had REAL tomato-basil soup for the first time at The Noodle Cafe when I was about 12 or 13. This little gem is in a small suburb of Chicago (where I grew up) and to this day it's still one of my all time favorite restaurants. There are a few reasons for this: 1) The food is amazing. ... read more
