Roasted Turkey Soup


It is coming to that time of year when colds and flu are going to be everywhere. I love having a big batch of soup on hand in the freezer to pull out on those days when my family is starting to feel a little yucky. This soup freezes well, tastes and smells amazing when…

Slow Cooker Beer Cheese Soup


It is Octoberfest time and Slow Cooker Beer Cheese Soup is a great addition to your menu to help celebrate. This is also great to serve at a football party and for a simple meal on a busy night. It is flavorful and simple to make. Verdict:. This is a family favorite. With a loaf…

Ham & Potato Cheddar Chowder


I love soup. It just warms me inside. If I have to pick a side I will choose a soup, especially a chowder or stew. I love the textures and flavor of just about any soup. Especially with warm bread and butter to dip in the bowl. Yummmm. We have a Zoup and Panera Bread…

Italian Sausage Stew


Confession time. I still have my Christmas tree up. We decided in January we were going to leave it up all year. We love looking at the lights at night. We don’t light it every night but decided to decorate if for the holidays. I just ordered some green lights for St. Patrick’s Day. Which…

Middle Eastern Chicken Soup


We had a bit of an ice storm yesterday afternoon. I went to my car about 2 pm and it was enclosed in a nice coating of ice and the sidewalks and roads were smooth ice.  So, I cancelled both of my meetings and we all had a nice night in. I’m so glad my…

Italian Tortellini Soup with Sausage


We needed something quick and easy to make with our Italian sausage. I love sausage but get tired of peppers and onions or pasta sauce with Italian sausage. I ended up making a loaf of herbed bread in the bread maker and thought that soup would be perfect to go with it. Verdict:  This was…

Slow Cooker Zuppa Toscana II


This is a throwback Sunday recipe. I went back into my earlier blog posts and looked for something I hadn’t made in awhile to see how the recipe held up. Do I make it differently now, and have the ingredients changed for us? Like I encourage you to do I make these dishes according to…

Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato Basil Soup


Last weekend while we were in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, my daughter ordered tomato soup and grilled cheese. She mentioned how I never make tomato soup. She could not remember the last time I made it so I decided it was time to make some again. When I pulled up my Slow Cooker Tomato Basil Bisque recipe…

Swiss Potato Soup


Yesterday I shared a recipe for Zopf bread (Swiss braided bread – click for link to recipe). When we make bread the first thing we want to make to go with it is soup! Hot fresh bread dipped in a creamy soup is pure heaven. So, we went with the Swiss theme and made Swiss…

Bratwurst and Beer Cheese Chowder


As I plan my menus for the month I try to take into consideration what we have going each day and what ingredients I will have leftover to make into other dishes. Or I also look at when I have extra time the day before to do prep for the next day’s meals when possible….

Meatball Ravioli Soup (aka Stone Soup)


Both of my children loved the story “Stone Soup” when they were little. It is a story about making the most delicious soup from nothing more than water and a stone.  The man convinces everyone in the town to bring whatever they have to add to the soup and in the end he ends up…

Slow Cooker Turkey and Wild Rice Soup and a Thank you


Thank you to all of you for the kind words and thoughts yesterday on my post President Trump (click for link to post). Last night the chin came up and the resolve kicked in. I don’t like it, I will work to change it. That is what I want from my kids. Resiliency. If you…
