Cheesy Potato & Italian Sausage Soup

Tis the season for...SOUP! I love the comfort of a warm bowl of soup on a cloudy and cold evening. Plus, you HAVE to have warm bread with soup, and that's really my downfall. I love fresh warm bread/rolls/breadsticks. 

This is a family recipe. I first had it this past Summer after I had my emergency surgery for my ectopic pregnancy. My cute sister-in-law brought it. Yes, it was summer, but I was in need of some real comfort. I don't think soup has ever tasted so good. It warmed my soul and filled my stomach with food that I hadn't had the emotional energy to eat up to that point. 

This is also a pretty fast soup to pull together. Your family will love it this cold season. Especially on those evenings after a hectic day of shopping.


1 lb. Italian seasoned sausage, browned
3 c. chicken broth
4 c. red potatoes (cleaned & cubed)
3 T. butter
1/4 c. flour
1 1/2 c. milk
8 oz. Velveeta cheese
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 c. sour cream

In a large stock pot combine chicken broth & potatoes, bring to a boil and then reduce. Allow to simmer until potatoes are tender about 20 minutes. (this would be a good time to brown the sausage)

In a separate saucepan melt butter and stir in flour. Cook for 1 minute until four is fully incorporated. Slowly whisk in milk and allow mixture to thicken over medium heat. Add Velvetta cheese and pepper. Stir until mixture is melted and mixed to a smooth consistency. 

Add the cheese mixture and cooked sausage to the broth & potatoes. Warm through for about 5 minutes. Just before serving, mix in sour cream.

Pumpkin Delight

Ok, we're going to try this. I'm slowly starting to appreciate food again, and not just force feed myself every couple hours.

This is a favorite pumpkin treat in our family. And I had completely forgotten about it until my brother started talking about it a few weeks ago. 

My husband is a pumpkin fanatic, so I'm always looking for pumpkin recipes. This is a sure winner!

And to be quite honest, I DON'T like pumpkin pie. I don't like pie actually. Crazy I know. I try every year to change my mind, because pies are so pretty. But I just don't like the crust. So this pumpkin delight is like pumpkin pie but with a cake crust instead of a pastry crust. WINNER!

I hope you enjoy! 

The crust:
1 pkg. yellow cake mix with 1 c. mix removed.
½ c. butter, melted
1 egg

Mix together and press firmly into a greased and floured 9x13 inch pan.

The filling
In a bowl mix the following:
1 large (30-oz) can pumpkin pie mix (not plain pumpkin!)
2 eggs, slightly beaten.
1 can evaporated milk

Pour onto crust.

The Topping:
Mix and crumble on the top:
¼ c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ c. cold butter
1 c. reserved cake mix.

Bake 350° for 50-60 minutes. Serve with whipped cream. This is great served warm or cold.

What I've been cooking & why I hate food

To all of my die-hard Some Kind of Delicious fans out there

Just kidding.

Well, I've obviously been MIA lately. And a lot of you may already know why. But it's because this is what I've been busy cooking instead.


Which means I'm spending most of my time here.
(this is not actually my bed, after all the time I've spent in it lately, there's no way I'd post an actual picture of it!)

Oh, and here. 
(yep, also not my toilet, but you get the idea)

A few weeks ago I was crying to my husband saying (all hormonal-like), "I can't think about my blog. I can't think about food. I HATE FOOD. And I can't imagine I EVER liked food."

Yep, that was pretty much devastation for him. And then he laughed nervously, "Oh honey, you will like it again, I'm sure. Just be patient with yourself."

And with that, I've taken a hiatus from thinking about food....and cooking...and eating anything other than crackers, fresca, and gum. 

But I hope to like food again. I really do. And when that desire comes back, you'll know it! I'm just praying that by Thanksgiving I'll like food at least. How tragic would that be? Almost as tragic as my poor sister who got braces two days before Thanksgiving. Who planned that? 

Anyway, hopefully I'll be back in the swing of things soon. Who knows if anyone is still really out there and cares anyway. Any thoughts, words of comfort, or complaints?


Ok, back to the bed.
