    Today I went to a Peruvian restaurant and had my absolute favorite soup of all time. Parihuela. You can see the soup I had in the pic below. It is composed of shrimp, clams, mussels, prawn, crab, calamari, octopus, and special chilis. The liquid is a reddish color. The bowl I had was very large and had enough seafood in it to make a complete meal.

    My husband and I live in a delivery food 'desert'. All around us are areas where almost any kind of food can be ordered; but it seems all we can have delivered are mediocre Chinese restaurant food, and Pizza. We're generally tired of both; and I think our Friday nights are going to start including a stop for carryout from someplace interesting. BUT: I never tire of the *soups* from Chinese restaurants, and decided to try making my own egg-drop soup. This is a very simple recipe, and you can add things to it - I usually add a little...

    Ted Cruz showed up Wednesday for a CNN town hall—or what Gawker frames as "another glimpse into the waking hell that is Heidi Cruz’s daily life"—with his wife and two young daughters in tow, and Heidi offered up a personal, if bizarre, nugget of life with the GOP presidential candidate. She dished on what her husband did right after they got back from their honeymoon: bought 100 cans of Campbell's Chunky soup. "I never bought 100 of anything," she told moderator Anderson Cooper. "This was shocking to me, so we had a tough conversation about it. I said, "You don't...

    You’ve carefully stuffed, cooked, and carved the turkey. You’ve sliced up all the extra pieces, packing them in tin foil for leftovers. And you may think you’ve used every possible aspect of that turkey. You’d be wrong. Before you toss that last bit, Michael Dukakis would very much like your turkey carcass. For decades, inside his tidy kitchen in Brookline, the state’s former governor and onetime Democratic presidential nominee has had a quirky but endearing tradition that is legendary among family and friends. The man is renowned for his thriftiness — he drinks coffee bought in bulk at Costco, at...

    This week, it's Soup and "Bread" (It's freezing here; and Soup's my favorite thing to cook anyway!) When I first developed a serious interest in cooking, my favorite cookbooks were the original 'Laurel's Kitchen' and a Shaker cookbook whose name I've forgotten and can't seem to find cited anywhere. One soup recipe that has stuck with me and remained a favorite is the "Favorite Green Soup" from 'Laurel's Kitchen.' Here is an adaptation of it, a really great soup, very nutritious, with plenty of room for variations. (In our house, it has the undignified name of 'Green Slime Soup' because...

For some more adventurous eaters, spicy foods are often an exciting dish to try.

That is why doctors in the Hubei province of China were dumbfounded after seeing the case of a 26-year-old man whose spicy food, they say, burned a hole...

    A bill recently introduced in the California Legislature may strip shark's fin soup from Chinese-restaurant menus for good. The move shouldn't come as a shock. Environmentalists have long fought for a ban on the sale and possession of the fins, which are largely harvested by slicing them off live sharks, and then dumping the shark back in in the water to die a slow, painful death. (Read Dave's post, "Why Is Shark's Fin So Controversial?" for a thorough rundown.) And yet it does. Called the "Rolls-Royce of the sea" in a front-page New York Times story on the issue, shark's...

    Hospitals in Russia's far-eastern city of Vladivostok have seen an influx of patients with a rare form of fish poisoning. Several people have died. The culprit is the fugu fish – a traditional and popular Japanese delicacy. The catch is you have to cook it very carefully because just one fish contains a poison capable of killing over 30 people. In Japan, only very experienced, specially trained cooks are allowed to dress fugu. Fugu fish are not usually found off Vladivostok, but the warm summer saw their numbers grow. Hungry anglers took it upon themselves to make what they thought...

    Sacramento has been churning out Campbell's tomato soup for 62 years, and through all that time, the goal has remained the same: Keep the iconic soup tasting the same way it has since 1897. That just got a lot harder. In late July, the Campbell Soup Co. began shipping a new formulation of its oldest and often best-selling brand with a 32 percent cut in sodium that brings it in line with federal health guidelines. In the processed-food business, that's a huge risk. Salt is an effective and cheap flavor enhancer with no known substitute. Even a 10 percent cutback...

    Despite being pressured by traditional family advocates to stop, Campbell's Soup Company, maker of Swanson's brand broth, has vowed to continue spending its advertising dollars in pro-homosexual publications. As WND reported earlier, the American Family Association objected to a Swanson's broth magazine ad that depicts a lesbian couple and their son. The ad was placed in the December 2008 and January 2009 issues of The Advocate, a magazine that touts itself with the line, "For 40 years, setting the standard in LGBT journalism." Campbell's Soup, however, has brushed off the AFA's complaint. MediaDailyNews quoted a company spokesperson explaining, "Inclusion and...
