oh and DKM – her food, crochet, knitting and stuff


We’d though we’d do a 13 things in DKM’s kitchen she always has on hand (thanks for the idea Millie’s Mum).

1. Garlic
2. Italian Parsley
3. Arborio rice
4. Onions
5. Thyme
6. Lemons
7. Anise Bulb
8. Sherry
9. Veggie Stock
10. Parmesan Reggiano
11. Romaine
12. Saffron
13. Whole grain mustard

And her favorite fall soup

DKM’s Onion Soup


DKM's Onion Soup

Olive Oil

4 cloves garlic, minced

3 large onions, sliced into rings

2 T. sage, chiffonade

¼ c. sherry (I use Dry Sac Sherry for cooking)

4 c. veggie stock

Salt & pepper to taste

Sautée garlic in olive oil on med high until golden (be careful not to burn of the soup will be bitter), add in the onion, pinch of kosher salt and a pinch of sugar. Sweat the onions on med high for about 10 min. Reduce heat to med and sautée until all onions are golden brown. Add in sage & sherry. Cook until the liquid evaporates. Add in stock, salt and pepper to taste and simmer for 10 min or so. While simmering, toast a hunk of fresh bread. Serve over toast with a sprinkle of Parmesan Reggiano.

  3. Sometimes my humans have onion soup, too, but I won’t touch the stuff. Onions are very bad for cats.

  8. Oh my goodness. I think I remember you sharing a photo of this before … maybe?

    It looks so goooood. Unfortunately, I can’t cook. Good thing for me: My husband can! I’m going to pass on this recipe. Right now I’m eating his butternut squash soup. Soup is the best part of fall.
