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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Butternut Squash Soup in the Crockpot

80

“You have a food blog?”  Yes, and I start updating it, and then I get pregnant and stop cooking due to nonstop vomiting, and then it’s summer (too hot for most soup), and then I’m busy with a newborn/toddler. Rinse and repeat. But, I made soup today, and I’m delighted to share it with you. […]

Spaghetti Squash Soup

78

I had half of a spaghetti squash that I needed to use up, and I didn’t feel like going the traditional marinara route. So I googled “spaghetti squash soup” and came up with a handful of recipe options. This is the one that I decided to try.

African Sweet Potato Soup with Peanut Butter and Black Beans

63

This is a unique soup. The flavor combinations are very unexpected, but it’s the kind of surprise that, after I pondered it for a bit, I decided was a very good one. Especially if you happen to like peanut satay, which we both do, very much. Poor Titus couldn’t weigh in on the whole combo […]

Curried Coconut Butternut Squash Soup

56

It’s soup season again!  Which, hopefully, means that I will be back at the soup blog more regularly. I have, in fact, made a number of soups recently, and I have a super easy one simmering in the crock pot now. This one, however, I made about a month and a half ago, and it’s […]
