Butternut & Red Pepper Soup

Today I am empty.

I am completely empty of words for you today. So, instead of my usual ramblings I present to you images.   Little details, big details, things that have made me happy and filled with joy lately.

Like this soup.  This omg amazing flavorful rich bright colorful well you just have to make it and taste it for yourself soup.

Sometimes it’s the little experiences in life that bring so much pleasure.

Like standing on a mountaintop making friends with another landscape photographer, and literally feeling on top of the world high above the clouds:

Autumn in the Alps

Catching dew drops in the afternoon sunlight, amazed that they survived the whole day in the shade until this one moment to glisten in the yellowed glow:


Sitting on a bench enjoying the dappled light of an ivy blanketed tree and moss covered ramparts:


Leaning in close to admire some of the smaller details of life, thriving in even the most unlikely of habitats:


Admiring the sun glowing on an old church wall:

Eglise de Gruyères

But what always brings me happiness is getting to share meals with those I love.  My parents came to visit the past couple weeks, and I made them this soup.  Because cooking and eating with family/friends is just as much an act of love as it is an act of happiness.

I hope you enjoy this soup, and more importantly, I hope you are able to share with someone you care about :)

**On a side note, but to mention another event that has occurred that makes me happy, have you checked out the launch of the latest gluten free website?? Stuffed Pepper is a place to view/contribute recipes, articles, restaurant reviews and more – a great new up and coming hub of gluten free awesomeness! I may have contributed an article about food photography 😉
