  • Ome of the first soups that I ever learned how to make was French onion.

    Although it contains few ingredients, French onion is one of the most complex and satisfying soups out there. 

    The combination of a rich onion soup paired with crunchy bread and melted, gooey cheese creates a dish that is better than the sum of its parts. 

    The ratio of soup to cheese to bread is a very important concept in a good French onion. 

    The earthenware crocks that French onion soup is commonly served in helps keep this ratio in check.

  • No, you are not seeing double –  these pretty calicos are named Twisted and Sister. They are 7 months old and spayed.

  • What do you say to a family whose loss has given you a second chance at life?

    That’s a question Bedford resident Carla Boyer, 46, has been asking herself since she received a kidney transplant just over two months ago.
