Snow is falling here in Israel. Harmless flurries, not the kind of storm that just hit the East Coast, or the one that hit us a few years ago and left us without heat and power for days. Since that storm, I have to say that I have not been a huge fan of snow. The idea of it just scares me.

How do I keep my mind off the impending doom? I cook. Soups are always my favorite things to cook in the winter. I don’t care for them thin, liquidy soups. Give me a soup that sticks to your ribs and you’ll have a happy Rena.

I love my hand blender. I use it every chance I get. In case the electricity goes out again and you can’t use it, a potato masher works well too.
