Between getting the cookbook My Father's Daughter recently, along with the new camera lens, I've been cooking & photographing in the kitchen a lot lately. It's usually dark when I start dinner (courtesy of winter), so the photos don't always turn out pretty, but I like documenting the process for myself to look back on and am considering printing a little booklet of all of my favorites...someday. Here is one favorite (from the cookbook) that I make frequently: French-onion-style bean soup (recipe here). It is so delicious, and best of all, easy to make.
(star of this dish: fennel bulb - so fragrant - along with garlic & onion)
(hearty, white cannellini beans)
(served, with crusty bread...or cheesy toasted baguettes)
