Garlic & Herb Whipped Potatoes

I served these under braised short ribs on Christmas. I went heavier on the red wine and lighter on the beef stock than what I have previously done for braised short ribs, so I will have to post that recipe soon, too.

Southwestern Tomato Soup

A friend has surgery recently and was really craving a flavorful soup, but it had to be entirely pureed (cheese in the photo was my test bowl - cheese is optional.)

Improvised Two Bean Soup – Saved from Disaster

I ended concocting this yesterday when I needed something to bring to a potluck event. I made potato salad, but I didn't like how it tasted. It ended up turning out fine, but I needed to get something else together in case the potato salad was a total fail.
