By Katie Mills - Contributing Not A Model Blogger
Hello Not a Model readers!
I'm thrilled to be a fashion and food contributor to my lovely friend Amanda's blog. We'll get to the fashion a little later on, but for now let's talk about food. As a frequent food blogger, I thought it would be appropriate to share some of the recipes I make at home on Not a Model, in a Recipe of the Month column. I want the recipes to be classic (perhaps sometimes with a twist) but also seasonally appropriate. What better way to kick things off than with a very traditional and delicious, French Onion soup.
As I've shared on my blog many times before, soup is one of my all-time favourite foods; you really can't go wrong with a delicious homemade soup. I had never actually made French Onion soup before but this one had a lot of good ratings so I thought it was safe to try. Minus the long caramelizing and boiling down process with the onions, this recipe is fairly straight forward and doesn't call for a lot of ingredients, which is always a nice thing. I didn't bake my bowl of soup in the oven with the bread and cheese like they do in restaurants, mostly because I didn't think I had the appropriate dishware to do so, but broiling the cheesy toast and adding them on top afterward was an equally appealing (and necessary) option. If you're a fan of French Onion soup, I would definitely give this a try. It's the perfect meal after a busy day at work/school, and warms your belly up in an oh-so-delicious way.
