Grandma’s Cream of Tomato Soup

My husband wanted his grandma’s cream of tomato soup, and no other recipes I could find met his needs. So he made the soup himself.

I like it because it is so simple: the soup is very thin, but this suits it. It’s also very easy to whip together.

Brown Sugar Bacon

Paula Deen’s food on her Food Network show are usually not too appealing to me, with all the fat. When her friend made Brown Sugar Bacon, though, I thought I’d give it a try. I don’t like bacon, normally, but I hoped the sugar would make it tasty.

It was good, although I let it get a bit too dark in the oven.

Orange Sorbet

If you have an ice cream maker, why not make some sorbet? It is so easy and good. I made it the first time last weekend. (It didn’t last long.)

  1. Boil 2 cups water and 2 cups sugar until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Let it cool a little and then add 2 cups orange juice.
  3. Put it in an ice cream maker and let it freeze.
  4. Eat and enjoy.

The other day, Simply Recipes shared a tangerine sorbet recipe. It also sounds good!

If you don’t have an ice cream maker, here are some tips from David Lebovitz on how you can still make ice cream.
