Cauliflower Soup with Roasted Peppers and Feta

Cauliflower Soup with Roasted Peppers and Feta

More than a month has passed since I’ve written here, but that doesn’t mean I’ve left it to sit.  Okay, it appears as if it’s been abandoned.  But I’ve been searching for and learning about many things that will hopefully make it function better than it has in the past.
