Carrot Ginger Soup with Hot Chili Cilantro Oil

Carrot ginger soup with hot chili cilantro oil recipe

It's been 211 days since I last posted on, Care's Kitchen.  Life's been busy.

First off, I hope those of you reading are well!  It's nice to be back!  Over the past few months we've celebrated holidays, birthdays, graduations, new schools and new jobs!  Like so many families, we've had our hardships too...medical scares and loved ones passing.  There was a super storm that wreaked havoc on our state and an unspeakable national tragedy in Newtown, CT.  (My heart...and I'm sure you agree...will never stop breaking over this.)

So here we are...now what?  In 2013 I want to do better. I want to be a better mom, a better friend, a better sister, daughter, wife and neighbor.  What's it all for, if not for those around us we love. I want to remind myself to be thankful for every day and to (at times) stop and take in the little things that make an otherwise ordinary day ....special.

On a very positive note, I'm excited to let you know I was contacted by the editors at the website, SheKnows to be a contributor to their Food and Recipes section.  It's been a wonderful opportunity for me to make some extra money doing what I love to do ~ cook and photograph food!

Thanks to those of you who have stuck with me during my months off. From here on forward, I will post when I can and link to my posts on SheKnows.  Let's start with this Carrot Ginger Soup with Hot Chili Cilantro Oil.  I've made it four times over the past month ~ it never disappoints!

Here's to great things ...and great food in 2013!  Thank you all!

Cheers xo
