Happy New Year! The first post of 2015 so clearly we have some end of 2014 recapping to do before moving on, right?

In case you missed it, be sure to check out the top 10 recipes from in 2014!

I have to say, I’m glad vacation is over and school is starting back up. Not because I’m over vacation but this vacation was a major downer. Everyone was sick for the entire time, right up ’till the last moment. Brutal colds and ear infections. Fun fun. I’d officially like to live in a bubble. I swear I’m not going to turn into a germaphobe, but being sick is the pits and happy to put all of that behind us… until next time, because it’s inevitable.

And in entertainment news – I started binge watching White Collar from the beginning. It took me until half way through the first season until I realized one of the main characters is the most recent Superman. What?! (Edited to add: wrong guy, but they look so much alike they could be brothers!) Also, we’re giving True Detective a try. Of course we’re only an episode in so I don’t have much to say about that yet. It always takes a few episodes for me to decide if I really like something or not. That’s what happened with Orange is the New Black. Strange show and definitely takes at least a few episodes to get into, but then you’re hooked on the characters and quirkiness. And of course now I have to wait until something like June for that to start back up. But, in the meantime I have White Collar and all of the new shows starting back up. I like my night downtime, what can I say?! It’s quiet and relaxing. What shows are you most looking forward to starting back up… Downton Abbey, Scandal…?

    Love this recipe.. already made it once and will be making again..

    The most recent superman (Henry Cavill) isn’t actually on White Collar though (thats Matt Bomer although they could be siblings).. if you want to see Supermans TV chops, check out the Tudors

    • Rachel — January 19th, 2015 @ 11:44 am

      So glad you’ve enjoyed the soup! And you caught me… I meant to go back and edit that out after realizing it and completely forgot! But, they really could be brothers they look so much alike.

    I can’t wait to try this soup out! Also, I was wondering if you could perhaps tell me where you got the bowls pictured here? They are ADORABLE :)

    • Rachel — February 6th, 2015 @ 7:28 am

      I hope you enjoy it! As for the bowls, they’ve been discontinued and are no longer available.
