Secret Combinations

If you are Mormon you are probably envisioning the Gadianton Robers right now…. but this is a different kind of secret combination.

I probably do more online research for recipes than I do for just about anything else. School included. I love it that you can search for a recipe and come up with countless ways to make it. I usually end up reading about 10 recipes and all the reviews and then making it my very own. After I make my combinations I usually try to write it down for my recipe collection so that it can be duplicated. Something my Dad wishes my mom did… LOL. She would cook stuff all the time and my Dad would be like this is great you should make it again. But my mom had a hard time duplicating because she never measured anything and just liked to throw in a little of this… a little of that. Still my mom made countless delicious meals.
The last time I made Butternut Squash soup I stumbled upon this video. It has three variations to make the soup All American, Thai or with a Mexican kick. I love this soup in the wintertime and yesterday we tried the Thai version… Chuck loved it and so did I. We served it with hot Naan (Which is Indian flat bread and oh so delicious).
I am still trying to master Tofu, yet all my research has not produced a winner yet… maybe I’m doing it wrong. My next attempt is this peanut butter coconut tofu recipe. Wish me luck.

    I'm not a huge fan of squash. This might be a dumb question, but does the soup taste really "squashy"? I've really been into making soup lately, so i may consider making this.

  2. There are no winners in tofu, only squishy loosers. I'd say skip that and make more squash! I'm the same way, I think I should move it over at That place is a gem!

    Toni… no the soup does not taste squashy to me.. butternut squash is really sweet and mild. I bet you would like it with the Ancho Chilies in it. And perhaps just because you like it on everything, you can put Chipotle in there too 🙂

    Oh you know me well! I'm gonna try it then. With lots of chipotles. Cause we all know chipotle makes everything taste better!
