This was another recipe that I tried out for the autumnal get-together back in November. It was the first time I'd ever attempted to make a potato salad, and I feel that the end result was reasonably good.

The original recipe came from Penzey's. I was IM'ing with a friend of mine while making it, so there were a number of modifications and changes suggested and I improvised quite a bit.

With the overblown failure of an overspicy glazed ham on Christmas, I found myself with an overabundance of leftover and somewhat too spicy ham. I put out a request for soup suggestions to use it in, and got more than a few suggestions for ham and potato soup. A little bit of Google-fu later, I had a printed out recipe. I tweaked it, added a few spices, and came up with the following very tasty recipe.

Savory Ham and Potato Soup )

Savory, thick, and tasty soup -- perfect comfort food for a cold winter's night. I am definitely making it again.

Last night, as the chill of autumn was starting to set in, I found myself in the mood for something satisfying yet not too difficult to cook up. I tinkered this together off of the foundation of a similar recipe from a soups-n-stews cookbook I bought some time back, and despite the dumplings just turning out OK (I always seem to have trouble getting dumplings just right, alas) the broth was pleasantly flavorful -- definitely not too bland.

So, without further ado, here's my recipe for Chicken Soup with Vegetables and Herb Dumplings. )

All in all, though, a very savory and tasty broth, with plenty of protein and veggies. Definitely a good thing to warm up with on a chilly day or evening.
