I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Carrot Apple Soup

"Beta" you're looking for ways to up your beta carotine intake. "Orangcha" glad you found this recipe?!?


1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 medium onion, cut in chunks
3 garlic cloves, sliced
2 tbsps fresh ginger, unpeeled
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp turmeric
12 large carrots, unpeeled and thickly sliced
1 apple, unpeeled and cut in wedges
6-8 cups vegetable stock or add a bouillon cube to water
1-2 tsps sea salt
juice of 1/2 lemon

Give the ginger, carrots and apple a good brushing to clean but leave the peel on for maximum nutritional benefits.

In a large pot heat the vegetable oil and add chunks of onion. Cook until onions begin to soften, then add the garlic, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg and turmeric. Sauté 1 minute. 

Add the carrots and apple, toss to coat and cook 3-4 minutes.
Add the stock or water and bouillon cube and bring to a boil. Then lower heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until carrots are soft.

Add the lemon juice for a pop of flavour and sea salt to taste then whirl everything in a food processor. This texture was with 6 cups of liquid but if you want a soupier soup use more stock.

Bugs Bunny would love this!

Serves 6-8
