Doesn't roasting bring out the best flavors and natural sweetness? Everyday Foods Magazine had an article on roasted soups this fall. They were wonderful.

I enjoy your blog. I grew up in San Clemente and now live in San Diego. Wondering if zone 23 is San Juan Capistrano?

Your blog is inspiring. I started one recently and then found yours during some web wandering. In case you'd like to see... it's
