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 […]

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 […]

Pioneer Woman’s Corn & Cheese Chowder

1

I’ve already shared with you Pioneer Woman’s Corn Chowder with Chilies, which is, as to be expected, delicious. PW excels in comfort food; and as with most comfort food, the more fat, the better. Her Corn & Cheese Chowder is no different. Not even remotely health food, but delicious and perfect for a crisp autumn […]

Cream of Tomato Soup — fast and easy!

83

Today is one of those transition-to-spring days.  Warm enough to tantalize you, but cold enough that you wouldn’t want to stay outside for long.  I thought it seemed like a soup-for-lunch day.  JR thought it seemed like a sandwich (with melted cheese) day.  What’s the perfect meet-in-the-middle lunch?  Tomato soup with grilled cheese, of course!

Curried Split Pea Soup

81

Split Pea Soup is not photogenic; there’s no question about it.  That doesn’t mean, however, that it doesn’t have other very laudable attributes. I’ve blogged about this soup before, but I made it the other day and thought it was worth mentioning here for several reasons.  One is that it’s a very, very tasty soup: […]

Creamy (creamless) Zucchini and Potato Soup

62

I still have part of the biggest zucchini that came out of my yard this summer.  In the last two months, I’ve made two types of zucchini bread, stuffed zucchini, grilled zucchini pieces, added it to other soups and stir fries… and still it remains.  Good thing zucchini is so delicious and healthy … and […]

Fast Chickpea Stew

50

Hey!  Remember that one time when I started a soup blog?  And I made a couple of posts and then disappeared for about 5 months?  Let me tell you “the rest of the story:”  I got pregnant and that little baby made me so sick from April to June that I really wasn’t doing any […]

Asian Chicken and Chili Soup

72

Sorry, friends; JR took our camera to work, so instead of a picture of this soup, you get a picture of an Asian rice field.  I guess you get what you pay for. What you DO get [totally free, I might add], if you can use your imagination and picture it in your mind, is […]

Roasted Tomato Soup

56

This was one of those “hmmm, hubby-wants-tomato-soup-for-dinner-since-he-stayed-on-the-couch-sick-all-day,-and-I-don’t-have-any-in-the-cupboard,-and-I’m-too-lazy-to-go-all-the-way-downstairs-to-get-a-computer-to-look-up-a-recipe-but-I-think-I-can-fake-it” soups.  What, you don’t have those days? So here’s what I did:
