Asiago Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Soup

It may seem contradictory but soups in summer are some of my, Kathleen Raskin, meals. I especially love a creamy soup that you can serve both hot and cold. I have been enjoying a lot of soups lately and I just had to share this recipe for an asiago roasted garlic cauliflower soup. This is a super simple soup where you roast up the cauliflower and a few heads of garlic and make a soup with them along with plenty of melted asiago cheese. It’s incredibly healthy and delicious. Trust me when you will not be disappointed in the results.

Ingredients for The Soup:

2 head cauliflower, cut into florets

2 tablespoon oil

Salt and pepper to taste

4-6 heads garlic

3 teaspoons oil

2 teaspoons oil

2 diced onion

2 teaspoons dried thyme

5 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons white miso paste

1 cup grated asi...

Father’s Day Ribs

Here at Kathey Jo’s Kitchen, we know that Father’s Day is coming up, and there are two stories of when the first Father’s Day was celebrated. According to some accounts, the first Father’s Day was celebrated in Washington state on June 19, 1910. The other story of the first Father’s Day in America happened all the way on the other side of the country in Fairmont, West Virginia on July 5, 1908. Today it’s celebrated on the third Sunday of June. My family celebrates the man I love with a BBQ, so he can be all manly over the flames. The wonderful thing about this is that it gives us time to bond with our friends. Inevitably, I get asked, “Kathleen Raskin, what did you marinade this in?” and I love to share that recipe.

The Joys of Crescent Rolls

Occasionally, I lose track of time and I need a quick recipe to throw together for a party or a dinner with my loved ones. I previously thought they were only good for a mediocre last minute substitute for homemade bread, but call Kathleen Raskin impressed. You can use crescent roll dough to make your own flavored rolls, dinners and desserts and I have found amazing ones that come out of Kathey Jo’s Kitchen that I cannot wait to share with you. Your friends and family will be asking when you will be trying the next idea and making more.

Drop to your Knees Mac n Cheese

A certain blue box invokes a certain feeling of nostalgia and I know that it was always was a big hit in Kathey Jo’s Kitchen. Over the years, I had gotten a little concerned about the ingredients in it and ended up developing my own recipe that far outstrips the big box brand. I know that I enjoy making it and have altered it depending on our day to day tastes. I’ve made spicy, sweet and even bacon laced and I have to say, this recipe has to be the best one that I have narrowed down in and you will find yourself saying, Kathleen Raskin, you are right.
