As a New Year's tradition for having good luck in the coming new year, my family would enjoy a meal with black-eyed peas, ham and a dark leafy green like Jamaican callaloo leaves. I created this soup recipe when my children were sick over New Years Day, so that they could enjoy our family's tradition while getting lots of nutrients.
Three Sisters Soup starts in the garden. Maize (corn), beans, and squash were planted close together, like sisters, because each one helps the other grow and thrive. After harvesting, the squash is roasted, and then all ingredients cook and simmer on the stove until the flavors develop. It’s hearty, yummy, and a perfect meal for cold winter weather!

Steamed Fish Cantonese Style (Mom’s Recipe)
1-2 lbs whole fish (fresh or flash-frozen)
2 stalks scallions (cut into 4-5 inches long)
2 stalks scallions (thinly sliced)
2 inches fresh ginger (peeled and sliced)
3 Tbsp soy sauce
1 Tbsp sugar
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1) Prepare the fish. Pat dry cleaned and descaled fish. Optional and not necessary: Season fish gills with white pepper and rub outside of fish with corn starch.
2) Line a heat proof plate with scallions that were cut into 4-5 inches long. Place fish over scallions. Place ginger over fish.
3) Prepare the steamer. Use a wok or a large pot with lid. Fill pot with 1 inch of water. Place a steaming rack inside pot. Bring water to a boil.
4) Carefully place plate with fish on steaming rack and cover pot with lid. Steam fish for 10 min or until cooked through. Cooking time will vary slightly based on size and thickness of fish. Fish is done when knife cuts through easily. Add additional cooking time at 2 minute increments if necessary. Do not overcook or fish will become chewy.
5) While fish is steaming, heat up soy sauce with sugar until soy sauce is warmed and sugar melted. Set aside. Heat up vegetable oil and set aside.
6) When fish is done steaming, remove plate from pot and drain any excess water from plate. Remove ginger. Place remaining thinly sliced scallions over fish. Drizzle warmed oil over fish. Drizzle warmed sweet soy sauce along sides of fish. Serve immediately.
I didn’t quite know what I was getting myself into the first time I happened upon a Chinese hotpot restaurant, but the deliciousness is something everyone should experience! Hotpot has everything you could ask for in a great meal - a shared dinner filled with a variety of fresh ingredients that you get to cook yourself right at the table in a simmering pot of perfectly seasoned broth while socializing with your friends and family. Yes, please!
The origin of the name Cullen Skink is a bit obscure except that Cullen is the name of a village on the north east coast of Scotland. Purists would say that you shouldn’t use just any smoked haddock, but rather “finan haddie”, which is haddock smoked over green wood and peat.
BORSCHT is a winter soup.
It differs from other soups by presence of Red Beetroot.
In the summer, BORSCHT can be vegan, but in the winter it is cooked in a fatty bouillon or with pieces of bacon (also a cabbage, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes or tomato paste, sweet pepper, herbs, onions, garlic)
To prevent the beets from losing their red color, it is better to rasp a cooked one at the end of cooking ( or marinated beetroot).
Add sour cream for taste!

Fave Memory: My Dad – an excellent cook – did most of the cooking in our house, and this was a favourite hearty lunch or dinner with some nice crusty bread and cheese. He rarely followed a recipe, though – just went by instinct and experience. We lost him earlier this year and I still can't believe I can't just call him up and confirm the ingredients or instructions – so this is to the best of our recollection. He loved everything to do with the sea and I can't think of another dish that reminds me more of my Dad.
This soup was my favorite during childhood and I have sweet memories about pulling the letters to the rim of my plate and making up words and phrases... It was also a fun way to say something nice to my mom and thank her for the delicious soup.
When I was home sick as a kid, I usually spent the day at my grandparents. I have fond memories of my grandma serving Campbell’s tomato soup, and grilled cheese—Velveta and white bread of course😝—and The Price Is Right (Bob Barker thank you) on tv mid-morning. Tomato soup and grilled cheese remains one of my favorite comfort foods, but I prefer homemade soup and gourmet cheese and bread these days!
Fave Memory : One of my favorite memories of food as a kid was spending Saturday afternoons around the kitchen table with my mom, my sisters and my brother making wontons. There is some skill to wrapping wontons perfectly the way my mom did and we all attempted but it we never quite matched it. What we loved was being creative with the wrapping - making egg roll shaped wontons, special delivery envelope wontons and anything else we could think of. The best part was when my mom would take a batch and make wonton soup as we finished up wrapping. I still gather around the kitchen table with my sisters to wrap wontons with my nieces and nephews wrapping wontons in creative ways.
Fave Memory - This recipe always makes me think of my grandmother. Her soup was one of my favorites when I was growing up. After we moved to the States from Finland I missed her cooking and asked her to write down some recipes for me. As a vegetarian, I haven't made this soup in years, but now it might just be fun to try it with temped instead. This is a traditional meat and potatoes soup from Finland.
