Honestly to-die-for soup. Romanians from Transylvania have a saying: ‘asa’i de buna, ca-ti vine sa-ti bati copiii cu lantul ud, sa-i sui in pod si sa le furi scara’ (so good, you feel like you want to tie up your kids, stick them in the attic, and steal the ladder). Not that the Transylvanians will do anything like that… Serve in bowls topped with extra sour cream.
Best Ever Pinto Beans
I learned to make pinto beans from my Grandma, who came from Oklahoma. I’ve added to the recipe, and my Mother used to say mine were the best beans she’d ever tasted. Serve the Southern way – with cornbread and steamed greens.

Curried Chicken Soup with Chickpeas and Cauliflower

With a little creativity you can easily make two varieties of these soul-satisfying meals.
