The easiest mushroom soup ever

I don’t know if you are lucky enough to live in the Caribbean and enjoy great weather in October, but here in Montreal autumn already started its reign. Even though I like the beautiful colours out there, I should say that my husband and I would definitely prefer to be somewhere where there is still summer. We cannot change that, at least, for now, but what we can do is to cook us something both warm and comfortable, like hearty mushroom soup. Here goes one of my favorite recipes. I hope you enjoy it! :) :)

Hearty and comforting mushroom soup recipe with buckwheat cereal, potatoes and carrots, perfect for the autumn season and very easy to make.

"So, a banana really is a natural remedy for many ills. When you compare it to an apple, it has FOUR TIMES the protein, TWICE the carbohydrate, THREE TIMES the phosphorus, five times the vitamin A and iron, and twice the other vitamins and minerals. It is also rich in potassium and is one of the best value foods around. So maybe its time to change that well-known phrase so that we say, ‘A BANANA a day keeps the doctor away!’"

Chahohbili Chicken Stew

Here comes a traditional Georgian dish that also happens to be very popular in Sochi! Truth be told, there are many Chahohbili Chicken recipes out there, some of them having to do with game bird and what not, but we personally prefer this one for its simplicity (and also the fact that it doesn’t involve any hunting whatsoever – regular grocery store chicken will do just fine, bonus points if it’s grain-fed).

That being said, if you guys (and gals) have an interesting variation on this recipe (that doesn’t involve hunting), we’re all ears!

Russian Breakfast Rolls

We came across this recipe a few months ago somewhere on the Internet. And we fell in love immediately.

We love eating these rolls for breakfast, but you can also have them for dessert (with ice cream, say).
