Hi!

It’s been a while.

Sarah came to visit and we made gluten-free beet ravioli. It was delicious. A lot of you asked for the recipe on Instagram. And Sarah promises to share it and when she does, I promise to share it with all of you. Then Haley came to stay. She shot footage of my Early Summer pop-up dinner. More scenes {and a video!} from that night are coming soon. I also have about three hundred images from my May trip to Italy to share with you. I’m thinking about sharing a guide on Bologna/Emilia-Romagna. Do you dig it?

And I just spent four days in Las Vegas for some Big Heart Tea Co. things. It was rough. For the obvious ‘I was in Vegas for four days’ reasons. I’m exhausted. And I’m dehydrated. My body needs nourishment. And my mind needs rest. I shared some of my favorite Vegas spots with you last fall, and I’ve updated the list to reflect a few new places I found this time around.

So today I’m sharing two really quick, super simple, small batch soup recipes. Because soup in both hot and cold form soothes every inch of my soul. Made in a small skillet and transferred into my Wolf Gourmet blender, both of these recipes come together in ten minutes. Using fresh corn as a base you can keep things naturally creamy and light and vegan. They are intended to serve one or two. I like to make them for dinner when I’m eating alone and feeling uninspired to cook. Because they’re fresh and fast and more delicious than takeout.

The first is a creamy corn small batch soup, served with fresh oregano oil. Get those recipes below.

The second is a spicy corn small batch soup and you can find this recipe on Wolf Gourmet’s blog.

I always have an abundance of oregano because I have a giant patch in my garden. But if you wanted to use a different herb in place of oregano, basil or parsley would be great options. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.

    I had SO much fun visiting you and filming your gorgeous event. I hope you get some time to recover from Vegas, and I can’t wait to try this soup. You’re a soup wizard. xoxo

    This soup sounds incredible and exactly what I need while feeling under the weather. I will be asking my husband to pick up the couple of ingredients I don’t have on hand so I can make this tonight.
