This holiday season, if you’re wondering what to buy the fellow foodie in your life, look no further than Amazon Handmade. I picked up this gorgeously handcrafted cutting board¬†featured in this post via Amazon Handmade and spent entirely too much time browsing through all the categories while adding items to my wishlist.¬†Amazon Handmade brings convenience, including Prime two-day shipping, and everything else I love about Amazon to the world of handmade items. I am able to search and discover a diverse selection of giftable and beautifully customizable items on Amazon Handmade.

The warm grain of the maple wood on my new cutting board reminded me of the feeling of warmth you get rushing over your cheeks when coming in from a cold winter’s night. Or how it feels to fill your belly with a comforting soup. There are few things better than a piping hot bowl of soup on a cold day. My Pasta e Fagioli Soup is the perfect warm-you-up dinnertime meal that satisfies the belly and delights the tastebuds. It’s a rich soup filled with beans, ground beef, and a combination of mouthwatering flavors. I love to cook mine in the slow cooker to ensure the flavors marinate together all day long. Inspired by my new kitchen tool, I wasted no time whipping up a batch of this delicious soup.

I start by adding some olive oil to a pan and brown some ground beef. Once the ground beef is no longer pink, I transfer it to my slow cooker.

Then I add in a few diced carrots, some celery, and a finely diced onion.

Next I add in some crushed tomatoes, a couple cans of beef broth, two Bay leaves, some oregano, some basil, some thyme, and some salt and pepper to taste.

Finally I add in a can of white beans and a can of kidney beans (both drained and rinsed first).

I turn my slow cooker on low and let it all cook together for about six to seven hours.

About thirty minutes before serving, I add in about a cup of ditalini pasta and remove the Bay leaves.

Once the pasta is tender, this Pasta e Fagioli Soup is ready to be devoured. I love serving this warm soup with biscuits and salad. It’s one of my favorite wintertime meals.

This large Ambrosia Maple Wood Cutting Board was handcrafted by a company called Specialty Wood Designs located in North Carolina. Not only is it a practical addition to my collection of cutting boards, but it’s also so gorgeous, it doubles as a serving tray, cheese platter, and a variety of other entertaining uses. Using Amazon Handmade allowed me to find a carefully cultivated handmade item for my holiday cooking while offering the convenience of my usual Amazon Prime benefits. Amazon Handmade is a total gift shopping game changer!
