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

Hearty Sauerkraut Soup 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 for pickling/fermenting/curing: coring the cabbage heads (and eating few cores which have mild horseradish flavor);…

Beef Soup with Semolina Dumplings

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 with semolina dumplings is my absolute preferable soup of all times. It’s simple and abundantly tasty. Sometimes I use homemade…

Roux Soup (Ajnpren Supa)

roux soup - ajnpren supa | All that's Jas

Roux Soup (Ajnpren Supa) When I was a child I have shed many, many…..MANY tears over this soup that I could easily title it “soup of tears”. Granted, the picky eater I was I have cried over almost every meal. Also known as “poor man’s soup” this roux soup aka ajnpren supa was my parent’s favorite soup (served too often, if you ask me), and for that, I resented the said soup for decades. I wouldn’t go so far as to say…

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

The scenery outside is idyllic. Everything is covered in deep snow, the trees look like huge lace doilies sprinkled with glitter. But reality is the frigid temperatures (-40F with wind chill!) 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 plant was especially fruitful this year, thanks to the organic soil my husband bought. Not wanting to leave the…

Leeks and Potato Soup

Leeks, with their mild onion-like flavor, are an important vegetable in many northern European cuisines. I’m still astonished by how much they’re overlooked in this neck of the wood and how many grocery store cashiers are unfamiliar with this veggie. Leeks and potato soup is easy to prepare and if you have never tried leeks, this should be your recipe to try. It is easy to make, quick, healthy and delicious too. It is light and creamy without using any…

Creamy Vodka Mushroom Soup

Once we hit forty, women only have about four taste buds left: one for vodka, one for wine, one for cheese and one for chocolate, said Gina Barreca and I couldn’t agree more. The smoothness of vodka in this creamy soup delivers silky goodness in every bite. We paired it up with turkey and apple wrap for our almost traditionally preferred autumn lunch – soup & sandwich. With this recipe I officially launch my new blog design and my new…

Spicy Cajun Crab Soup

Man, it is cold outside! Living this close to Lake Michigan has its advantages in summer, but that lake effect we often get in winter is not enviable. Ugh… But don’t get me wrong, I do love the season change. I mean, who wants Christmas under a palm tree and 80 degrees Fahrenheit? Not me. The things I love about each season: the smell of air in the spring, summer rain, autumn cloud formations and soup in winter.  Actually, I…

Apocalypse Chicken Gumbo

‘Tis the season to be jolly fat, fa la la la… I don’t have the willpower to resist all the goodies that come with the holidays, so I made a resolution to eat everything in sight. You only live once and according to Mayan calculations, the world will end this Friday, December 21. Might as well die happy and not deprived of anything. The office Christmas party was a good place to start overeating. It is funny how I don’t…

Butternut Squash Soup

I never throw away food. Just the other day my husband was making me a drink and he put too many ice cubes in my glass. When I attempted to put a couple of them back into the ice-cube tray, he looked at me like “are you serious?”, Ok, I placed them in the sink but the guilt was killing me. They were perfectly fine ice cubes gone wasted! When I made this Butternut Squash-Barley Risotto recipe and was left with half of…
