This is my creamy Italian wedding soup. We love this soup and it's so so easy to make.
I made Italian Wedding Soup again, but this time I didn't do the low-carb one.
1 box (quart?) chicken broth
1-1/2 pounds peeled, sliced baking potatoes
1 pint heavy cream
3 strips bacon
1 pound sweet italian sausage
3 cloves garlic
1 big onion
a pot full of chopped curly kale
salt, pepper, shake or two of red pepper, a gig or two of datil pepper sauce
Here's what you do:
* Cut up bacon into bits and fry until crisp. Drain and set aside
*chop onion and garlic, set aside. Then chop the kale in big pieces like you'd cut romaine for a ceasar salad. It may feel tough now, but it gets limp and is easy to spoon once cooked.
*Fry in big pot: peeled sausages, breaking up into large chunks. Keep stirring so it doesn't stick and toss in a chopped onion and chopped garlic. Once this is cooked, turn down to low. Drain excess oil if necessary.
*Peel and slice potatoes, throw this into the pot with the italian sausage.
*Add box of chicken broth (or two cans) and add water to bring pot to 3/4 full. Bring to a boil.
*Add seasonings to taste.
*Pack kale in until no more will fit in pot. It will cook down! Cook on med heat until the potatoes start to fall apart and the kale is soft and cooked down into the liquid (maybe a half hour or more).
*Turn off heat and add a pint of heavy cream. Never allow any soup with milk product to boil! It will turn grainy.

Fruit and Oatmeal Breakfast Bars – Morning on the Go
Prep time: 15 mins, Cook time: 60 mins, Total time: 1 hour 15 mins
· 2½ cups rolled oats
· 1 apple, cored and relatively finely chopped
· ½ cup brown sugar
· ¼ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
· ¾ cup mixed dried fruit (I use a combination of dried mangos, blueberries and cranberries they sell at Trader Joe’s)
· ½ cup toasted slivered almonds
· pinch salt
· 1 tsp. ground dried ginger
· 3 cups milk
· 2 eggs
· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
· ½ teaspoon almond extract
1. Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9×13 Baking Dish. (I use Baker’s Joy or Pam for Baking, which include flour)
2. Combine oats, apple, brown sugar, coconut, fruit, almonds, salt and ginger in a large bowl.
3. In a small bowl or measuring cup, beat together the milk, eggs and extracts.
4. Pour the milk mixture into the oat mixture and stir well to combine (It will look more like muesli in milk than anything like batter). Pour into the prepared pan.
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes. Let cool, cut into bars, wrap and store.
