Minestrone Soup

I made this soup because my daughter loves it so much.  She asks for it all of the time, which is great.  It is super healthy and really cheap to make.  It cost me less than $5 for the entire pot and there is usually enough for more than one meal.  We ate it with homemade bread that had just come out of the oven.  It was delicious!


Spicy Eggplant



This recipe is for my cousin Larkin.  We went to a Chinese restaurant a few weeks ago and ordered spicy eggplant.  It was so good, but I felt terrible after eating it because of all the salt and oil.  I felt even worse when I looked up the nutritional info and found out it had over 40 grams of fat and 3 days worth of sodium.  Larkin wanted to me to come up with my own version, so here it is.
