Panera Broccoli Cheese Soup

1

My kids are on a broccoli kick. A few nights ago, they both refused everything else that I had on offer; Tito munched on a bowl of buttered broccoli like it was a bowl of popcorn while he was watching soccer with daddy. Lili ate her tiny broccoli florets by the fistful. So when it […]

Cheeseburger Soup (gluten-free, Velveeta-free)

60

You guys, this soup was such a pleasant surprise, although after making it, I can’t imagine how the original poster of the recipe managed to make it photogenic. The recipe caught my eye on Pinterest and I’d planned to make it for a Happy Hour night a few weeks ago, but then T got a […]

Chipotle Chicken Soup

66

What do you do when you unexpectedly end up with a Costco box of tomatoes? When you have a soup blog and a crowd of people for whom you make soup (and chips, salsa and margaritas) every Friday evening (click here for more info), you decide to make those tomatoes into soup! This is a […]

Chicken, Cabbage and Apple Stew

57

“You need to put this on your soup blog:” a good way to tell when a soup has hit the spot. Another way to tell is when the pot of soup is literally scraped clean by the guests. I think we have a winner, folks.

Cream of Spinach Soup

86

Does anybody else feel like they’re being tossed around in a storm at sea when they read information on the Internet about what to eat and what not to eat? I read a great satirical post a few weeks ago about that phenomenon – check it out here if you’ve ever been like, “I eat […]

Slow-Cooker Chili

42

Serving slow-cooker chili to guests (along with chips and salsa and margaritas — what a perfect meal for a 0-degree day!) almost seems like cheating. You throw everything in the pot and, viola! dinner is ready when the guests show up. Just be sure you have cheese and tequila on hand.

Creamy Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

75

You can make anything in the slow-cooker if you’re lazy enough. This soup is probably supposed to be “quick and easy,” but sometimes even quick and easy isn’t enough because dinner time happens to be precisely when everything else in this house goes to, um, well, when everything deteriorates and it’s impossible to do much […]

Martha Stewart’s Chicken Posole

68

Now that I am a mother of two, I have several more reasons to love soup. One is that it can be made in steps depending on when you get windows of opportunity throughout the day. So if, for example, one child wakes up and needs to be nursed right after you put the chicken […]

Pumpkin Soup with Sage and Bacon

69

I’m not a pumpkin person. I can eat maybe one or two pumpkin items per year, and then I’ve had my quota (this is a 2x increase over the number of pumpkin products I used to eat each pumpkin season). So bear with me even if you’re not a pumpkin person wither; this soups taps […]

Spiced Lentil Soup

51

I’ve made two soups lately … one was pretty good and the other was really good. This one was the “really good.” I’ll post “pretty good” later, since it’s still worth sharing, especially with a few tweaks that I would recommend. Lentils are such a great ingredient. They are amazingly good for you, they are […]
