Vegan Curried Lentil Soup

Vegan Roasted Vegetable Soup

Vegan Roasted Vegetable Soup I’ve made roasted vegetable soups before, and none of them came out very good, and I’ve made several pumpkin soups before, too.

How to make the most delicious popcorn I’ve ever had

The most delicious popcorn I’ve ever had was not in some movie theater. It wasn’t some exotic flavor in a gourmet restaurant. It was, of all places, in the remote jungles of Indonesia.
