This was a lot of fun! Most of my artist endeavors have fallen to the wayside now that the kids are out for summer. I was able to squeeze out a little time for myself. I needed a few backgrounds to scrapbook our trip to Florida this year, so I created the backgrounds and elements below. Enjoy!

I had the most amazing vegan soup at Revolutionary Soup the other week. I haven't stopped thinking about how delicious it was... and that was two weeks ago. I wondered if I could come up with something similar on my own. I scoured the web and found some delicious looking recipes but none of them were quite right. I ended up having to play around quite a bit.
While experimenting, I tried versions with lite coconut milk. I figured if it worked, I'd then work on finding a lower fat alternative but it really didn't add much at all to the dish. I ended up omitting it all together. By contrast, the curry powder was absolutely critical. It added incredible depth to the soup. I used Tandoori seasoning (my favorite curry powder blend by Penzey's).
I was able to reduce the fat in this dish quite a bit by using PB2 in lieu of full fat peanut butter. Powdered peanut butter has all of the flavor of peanut butter but 85% less fat. You can find it at the link I provided or…
