Chicken Soup...

...for the soul.

I've heard that this allergy season is the worst in 30 years. I could be the poster child. I am miserable when my allergies kick in & I pretty much live on ClaritinD. Yesterday, I woke up with the water works and I don't know about you, but I can't tell if the onset is allergies or a cold anymore. At any rate, I wasn't feeling great & the only thing I want to eat when I don't feel good is chicken soup. After work, I pulled out my pressure cooker- dumped all the ingredients in, made some matzo balls-Boom...Instant feel good...from the tip of my head to the bottom of my toes. I swear, it's a cure all!

Remember those Gluten Free Double Cherry Streusel Bars I made?

We're talking MAJOR streusel! These are were so dang delicious! 

This is so random, but Wednesday I was driving home from dropping Austin off at a meeting & it's that time of day where you are driving straight into the sun. It's insane & blinding and I can't believe there aren't more accidents....especially when the driver is snapping random pictures...shhhhh! 

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend!
Happy Snapping!


  1. Feel better Kelly. My allergies have been horrible too, I'm sure it is due to this abnormal weather we've had. I love that second shot and all that steam you were able to capture...fantastic!

  2. Oh my gosh, yes! Same here. Allergies GALORE and sometimes I cannot determine whether I am coming down with a cold or not. I live on Allegra these days, but even still . . .

    Fabulous food shots, really love the bowls of soup and steam (Kathy is right, fantastic!), and those streusel bars, Ommph! YUM! Can you make them using apples I wonder? I'd be in flippin' heaven if you could.

    Hope you feel better soon. Matzo ball soup is the cure all to be sure!


  3. Hope you're feeling better .... allergies have hit me, too! I spent the day yesterday sneezing and blowin' my nose!!! Ugh!!!! Finally took a Claritin and it stopped the sneezing and blowin' BUT I got a wicked sinus headache! Can't win!
    Anyway, AWESOME shots!!! OMG! Your soup looks delicious! That second shot is to be framed!!!! Are you lovin' your new lens?

  4. Allergies are definitely bad right now, but your soup looks wonderful, and oh my goodness, those streusel bars!!!
    Those would cure anything for me!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by Lisa. 😃

  5. Now I need some warm soup. Your second image is amazing.

  6. Wow, look at that steam in the second shot, awesome! Your bars look delicious! I love that light in your road shot! I hope you get some relief from the allergies soon!

  7. Oh I hope you are feeling better, I know this is a terrible year for allergies with everything soooo early. Love your bowl and great capture of the steam rising, and I would like one of those bars, please!!!
