Frittata Soup

by Meghann on November 12, 2009

I wish I could take credit for this idea, but then I wouldn’t be serving the lovely Sarah at Suite Apple Pie any justice. It’s her creative mind that came up with the concept for Frittata Soup and it was her blog that I discovered it on well over a year ago. The idea had been lost for a while, but after meeting Sarah at the Foodbuzz Festival this weekend I suddenly remembered it and have since been determined to try it ever since.

The concept is so easy – take left over frittata, add it to vegetable broth, heat, and serve.

This was a great way of re-inventing left overs into another fun and unique meal. Plus, the hot soup was just what I was craving with the cool and gloomy weather outside.

With my soup I had a piece of Pumpkin Cornbread.

I believe the bread was even better today than yesterday. I am already planning how to incorporate another piece to my meal tonight. So good!

Christmas Cookies…

I can’t remember if a PR company had told me they were sending me a copy of the Betty Crocker’s Christmas Cookies mini magazine or not, but I was pleasantly surprised to see it in my mail box today.

I have been thumbing through the magazine all morning and all the beautiful, delicious recipes have me in the Christmas baking spirit!

A few of my favorites:

Is it too early to start frosting Christmas sugar cookies? 😉

Pumpkin cornbread sounds awesome. And it’s never too early for icing!

I actually made Halloween sugar cookies so I would have an excuse to frost and decorate in October 🙂

It is never to early to make Christmas Cookies! I make them all year round!

5 Julie November 12, 2009 at 5:15 pm

I feel like I think about Christmas cookies all year round! I LOVE to bake, and Christmas is perfect for it. I can’t wait to dive in to all the wonderful cookie recipes I’ve found recently 🙂

What a great idea! I would never have thought of that. Thanks to Sarah and to you for passing it on.

That pumpkin cornbread looks so good.

Enjoy baking your cookies! 😀

10 Amelia November 12, 2009 at 5:18 pm

You should make some croutons out of your cornbread for a fall themed salad! Or make a panzanella style salad?! So good!

11 burpexcuzme November 12, 2009 at 5:18 pm

Not too early at all! You need to test them out before you share it, right? 😉

Oh, and that frittata soup looks really really Asian!

12 Abby (Nibble, Nourish, Run) November 12, 2009 at 5:19 pm

Never too early! I’ve already got the Christmas music playing…

13 Leianna November 12, 2009 at 5:23 pm

That recipe book looks amazing!

14 Diana November 12, 2009 at 5:23 pm

Never too early, seriously ahah
Also, that cornbread looks so good!

15 Morgan @ Life After Bagels November 12, 2009 at 5:26 pm

No it is not too early!

16 Katie November 12, 2009 at 5:28 pm

That soup looks really good. So creative. Usually I just use leftovers as is.

Um never too early for sugary sweets? You have to PRACTICE before Christmas so you better get on practicing baking the recipes for any parties/events you may have coming up. 😉

17 Jen (Running With Cake) November 12, 2009 at 5:47 pm

It’s not too early for Christmas cookies! But if you’re still debating, you could always make a few and eat them really fast before anyone sees you 😉

18 Sammi November 12, 2009 at 5:51 pm

If you asked that question in July, my answer would be the same. NEVER TOO EARLY! Yummmm!

Cookies would be lovely right now.

19 Ashley November 12, 2009 at 5:51 pm

20 Kimberly November 12, 2009 at 7:22 pm

I got that christmas cookies mag today as well and can’t wait to put it to use! YUM!

21 rhodeygirltests November 12, 2009 at 7:31 pm

I mean, you HAVE to try out a recipe before giving cookies as gifts right? SO I suppose you really HAVE to try now haha

22 Erin November 12, 2009 at 7:50 pm

That pumpkin cornbread sounds phenomenal. 😀

And it’s never too early for Christmas cookies — year-round, I say! 😉

23 Jenna November 12, 2009 at 7:54 pm

Maybe, but it’s not too early for Thanksgiving cookies. 😉 Do they make Thanksgiving cookie cutters?

25 Kara November 12, 2009 at 8:40 pm

Oh man, I MUST find the recipe for those almond cappucino bars!!

I have to try the pumpkin cornbread too — did you add anything to the top? It almost looks like you have a streusel on top…

26 rebecca lustig November 12, 2009 at 8:49 pm
