One of the things I've noticed as I've gotten into food blogging is that individual cooks have flavour profiles, ingredients, and cooking techniques that they turn to again and again.
And I am no different.
But one of the things I want to do with this blog is stretch myself past my own boundaries to experience new techniques and flavours.
As such, it has become important to try the recipes of other food bloggers while I integrate new uses of flavours and ingredients.
I am, however, on the perfectionist side, and if taking the time to cook a beautiful meal, the recipes of any old blogger will not do.
So today, I'm going to start with Jinx at "Stuff We Eat A Lot" a recipe blog she created for her son after he left home so he would have access to the foods he grew up with.
It goes without saying that I love that.
I have tried many of her recipes over the years and they have all been amazing.
So it came as no surprise that, tonight, when I made her Chipotle Tortilla Soup, the PB and I were over the moon!
I don't say this lightly when I tell you this is one of the top five best soups I've ever made.
My recipe differed slightly because I had no tomato sauce on hand. Instead, I added a can of diced tomatoes.
I also had to add tortilla rounds as, sadly, I could not find any strips. The rounds, however, with the cheese were D to the Licious!
In the tradition of Jinx's blog, my son will be coming home for Christmas and this particular meal will be on the menu!
Happy cooking all!
