Yam Soup

What's better on a cold winter evening after work then a bowl of home-made warm soup? I love soup as it is healthy and comforting yet tasty. The other day I had some coworkers talk about Yam soup. So far, my grocery has never included Yam. But the conversation intrigued me to try out this vegetable.

1. 2 Yams, roasted and peeled
2. Onion, 1 large, slices
3. Garlic pods, 4, cut
4. Nutmeg, a pinch
5. Salt
6. Olive oil
7. Pepper

1. Heat a skillet and then ad olive oil.
2. Throw in the onions and sprinkle salt over it.
3. Stir fry for a few minutes then add garlic.
4. Caramelize the onions and lower the heat.
5. Add chopped roasted yam and mash with the back of a ladle.
6. Add 2 cups water and bring to a boil.
7. Simmer on low heat for another 10 mins.
8. Let it cool.
9. Blend the liquid to a nice consistency.
10. Transfer it back to the skillet.
11. Add pepper and nutmeg and warm it up.

Serve warm.

Bread Pizza

I know guys - I have been out of action. I don't know what is happening to my schedule. I think it's the end of daylight saving time that has thrown me off. LOL I know I am making excuses so let's get on with it.
I have been cooking the same ole recipes posted on my blog. There has not been a lot new going on in my kitchen. During this time I've been visiting some other blogs and tried a couple of their recipes. But I chose not to copy and post someone else's recipe. Hence, the lull.
Here is something original...
We recently bought a bag of Mozz cheese. I've never had bread pizza (or I don't remember having it). I was craving pizza at a budget but a quick and easy snack. This is what I did:

1. Salsa sauce (Hot)
2. Bread slices (I used brown)
3. Mozz cheese
4. Red onion rings

1. Spread salsa over the bread.
2. Sprinkle cheese generously.
3. Throw on some slices of onion.
4. Bake uncovered in the oven at 450 for 7 mins appx until the cheese melts and bread becomes slightly crusty.

Devour a snack and don't think about the calories :)
