A Warm Nights Meal

Enjoying the winter weather?  Need a little something that will satisfy and fortify while the winds blow?  There's nothing that hits the flavor spot better in the throes of a deep freeze than a hearty soup.  We've serving up two different soups in the studio this week and another over the phone.

Love SoupI have to digress because all this talk of soup reminds me of a funny soup story.  I was at an excellent Italian spot in New York, Pepolino, a number of years ago.  A friend at the table, Stan, was talking about how he only ate soup if it was steaming hot.  When the waiter took our orders Stan made certain to tell him that the soup had to be HOT.  I took a good look at that cup of soup when it was brought to the table.  The steam was pouring off of it.  Stan sent it back saying it wasn't hot enough.  I'm not certain what they did to it in the kitchen to get it any hotter, but the second try satisfied.  That might have been one of those "you had to have been there" stories, but, trust me, it was hilarious.

Anna Thomas returns to GREAT TASTE this week, as our special guest to discuss soup recipes from her book, Love Soup.  The book contains 160 vegetarian recipes.  Anna is the celebrated author of numerous cookbooks including the classic, The Vegetarian Epicure, published in 1972.

KRUU wants thank all our listeners for an incredible 2013! May 2014 be the most successful ever. Happy New Year to all and thank you for the kind support this year and throughout the years. We wouldn't be here without you.

Kathy Snow and Janelle Jaspers Jones

This week on The Skinny, there's a 'tint of snow' in the air (and the KRUU studios) as Africa lends the reins to Kathy Snow and Andrew Tint.

Listen to their fun interview with one of Kathy's college roommates, teammates, and besties, Janelle Jaspers Jones. A 3-time state high school high jump champ, 1st team all-state basketball player, and one of Iowa's all-time Top 10-performing heptathletes--Janelle's now a busy mom and personal trainer in Minneapolis with her own wellness-based business called Functional Fitness. Janelle trains clients from all walks and ages. Whether they're in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and even 70s and 80s (who Africa fondly refers to as 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, and 8s)...Janelle encourages everyone to start making themselves a priority and do what they can to lead a healthier life. Listen and learn while Janelle introduces us to Tabata-style training. Founded in Japan by Izumi Tabata, the Tabata concept is an easily modified type of high intensity interval training that you can customize to your fitness level. Unlike a more complicated or multi-exercise circuit, one Tabata session could be simply two exercises...doing as many squats (or just getting up and sitting down on a chair as many times) as you can in 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest, and then 20 seconds of push-ups (or do them against the wall), followed by 10 seconds of rest...and repeat 4 times.
