For the second edition of Magazine Mondays (oooh – this is so exciting!) I decided to finally put the November 2006 issue of Food & Wine magazine out of its misery. This particular issue has been languishing in my magazine basket for almost a year thanks to two recipes that I’ve wanted to try, but haven’t until now.

For starters, I give you one of the most delicious and satisfying soups I’ve had in a long time: Spicy Grain Soup.

While the soup took some time to make (and considerable effort), it was all worth it in the end as I had a filling, warming and completely comforting soup. I also had lots of leftovers, which is great for weekday lunches!

And because one must always end a comforting meal with dessert, I decided to finally make the Double-Chocolate Bundt Cake with Ganache Glaze.

Wow!

You’d think this cake would be very sweet but it’s actually quite subtle in the sweet department. It does, however, pack a big chocolate whollop. I’m glad I finally had the chance to try these recipes.

Here’s hoping you tried some bookmarked recipes of your own. If you did, let me know.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Ciao!
