Healthy Beef Bone Broth

Healthy Beef Bone Broth

This post contains affiliate links. If you purchase this product through those links, I may be compensated. Bone broth is a popular staple in many European and Asian cuisines. I’ve always wondered how unfamiliar bone broth still is in North America. Fortunately, bone broth is starting to gain mass popularity as one of the next big super foods. What makes bone broth different than typical stock is the cooking time. By covering animal bones with water and simmering for 12-24…

Beer and Cheddar Soup

Bear and Chedder Soup - All that's Jas

Drinking your lunch is fun, but nothing beats eating your beer. It’s a good excuse to have it before 5 o’clock, don’t you think? What kind of beer you put in your beer and cheddar soup is totally up to you and your beer preference. If you love robust flavor use ale or go with something lighter, like a pilsner, for a more subtle hint. Too dark of a beer can make the soup bitter. Crispy bacon and French fried…

Mediterranean Pepper Soup

Mediterranean Pepper Soup- All that's Jas

Mediterranean Pepper Soup I was setting up a game to entertain my not-even-three-year-old granddaughter Ava, and I guess she thought it was taking too long because she cocked her head and said: “Grandma, you don’t know how to play this game, do you?” I was floored. Kids say and do the darndest things! They are so smart. She made me feel self-conscious though (am I really slowing down without realizing?), but I couldn’t be prouder of her. My bloggy friend…

No Stir Bosnian Pot aka Bosanski Lonac

No Stir Bosnian Pot, Bosanski lonac, cabbage, stew - All that's Jas

    I don’t know the origin of this dish’s name – Bosnian Pot, but I assume it was hard to name the dish that is made of everything but the kitchen sink. Even though, cabbage is available throughout a year Bosnians associate this traditional dish with Spring, or maybe it’s just me. On cool and rainy Spring days, like we are having right now, there’s nothing more comforting and satisfying than a bowl of Bosnian Pot. There is also…

Hearty Sauerkraut Soup

This German-style sauerkraut soup is hearty, warm-your-soul good and perfect dish for fall and winter.     My husband’s ancestors are Irish and German yet he doesn’t like cabbage or sauerkraut! If he didn’t look exactly like his siblings I’d think he was adopted. Cabbage was often on the table during the summer months in my childhood home and mom would prepare enough sauerkraut to last us over the winter.   I always liked the process of preparing the cabbage…

Beef Soup with Semolina Dumplings

This simple clear beef soup with semolina dumplings cures everything, from a heartache to nasty flu.     The smell of onion browning right on top of the stove burner is one of my favorite aromas. If I could bottle it up and use it as perfume, I would. I swear.   This method for browning onions is used in Bosnian cuisine for all clear soups. It definitely adds to the flavor and keeps the soup clear.   Beef soup…

Chicken & Potato Stew

Chicken and potato stew | All that's Jas

Chicken & Potato Stew If you were growing up in Bosnia five of your main weekly meals would have been some kind of stewed meat with vegetables, like this chicken and potato stew, served with warm bread and fresh salad. The other two, usually on weekends, were preceded by clear beef or chicken soup with homemade wheat dumplings or noodles. That’s what I call comfort food. My daughter, who was six when we left Bosnia, thinks that stews and soups…

Creamy Zucchini Soup – Bosnian style

Comforting bowl of Bosnian creamy zucchini soup

This Bosnian creamy zucchini soup is perfect for cold weeknights. It’s comforting and quick to make.     The scenery outside is idyllic. Everything is covered in deep snow, the trees look like huge lace doilies sprinkled with glitter. But the reality is the frigid temperatures (-40F with windchill!) got us stranded in the house for two days. In my book, that calls for a hot soup.   My freezer is stacked with vegetables from my garden and the zucchini…
