Pumpkin Coconut Soup

pumpkin soup

This was an experiment that worked out. Real, REAL good. I needed to use up some pumpkin puree after shooting my homemade pumpkin puree video. I remembered a recipe I made several years ago, a butternut squash and shrimp soup with a coconut milk base, that was AB FAB. And you know, pumpkin is so similar…

Butternut Squash Soup with Coconut Relish

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe Video – scroll down for recipe card A while back I made an everything-wilted-goes-in-it soup for dinner and pureed that mother up.

How To Make Chili (Texas-Style!)

Chili (AKA chili con carne) shouldn’t be difficult! Let’s keep it simple and radical! Here’s my old man’s Texas chili recipe and it’s ultra-good. Make it as spicy as you like. Then make a Frito pie and tell me Texas isn’t the best place on earth. As far as chili goes, anyway.
