Crazy for 'shrooms

If I had to pick one of my grandma's soups to be my favorite, it would be one tough decision. Born and raised in Russia where lunch is the biggest meal of the day consisting of three entrees (soup, main plate, and drink), I've certainly had my fair share of soups! My grandma's soups are always vegetable based and fill me up!

My favorite would have to be her mushroom soup, immediately followed by her borscht!

Today's lunch was perfect.

First course: Mushroom soup.

Second course: Salad with roasted sweet potato (I recently learned that if you slice the sweet potatot in 1/4" thick slices, it takes just 20 min in the oven!)

Third course: My favorite fruity tea - Teavana's "Weight To Go".

Do you have any sweet potato recipes to share? It's my new healthy foodie obsession.


  1. i love my granny's borscht too!!

  2. That mushroom soup looks so delicious!!! By any chance would you be able to post the recipe? I never know how to use mushrooms in soup and I LOVE mushrooms!

  3. Absolutely! I'll post it as soon as I can. It will depend on my grandma, who is the master chef of soups in our kitchen :)
