Tortellini Zucchini Soup

I recently tried this yummy tortellini soup that surprised everyone with how good it was. I made lots extra, but even with the extra we ended up with barely enough to pack my husband a serving for lunch the next day! It was very quick and easy to prepare and could easily be made into […]

Chicken Barley Vegetable Soup with Herbs

This simple, hearty, and flavorful soup has a delicious combination of herbs and vegetables that is perfect for a fall or winter meal. For a vegetarian version, omit the chicken and use vegetable stock or water instead of chicken stock. This recipe, like most soup recipes, is flexible and can be adapted to use what […]

Tomato Tortellini Florentine Soup

Looking for a dressed up version of tomato soup? This delicious and satisfying version is perfect. You can serve it alone or add grilled cheese for more hearty appetites. Try a grilled cheese with a different kind of bread and a fancy cheese for a real treat.

Turkey Frame Soup

That turkey carcass leftover from your holiday meal is treasure, not trash! The frame from your turkey (or chicken) makes the most delicious broth you have ever tasted. Simply put the bones (and skin if you have any) into your slow cooker and cover it with water. Let it simmer overnight and in the morning you will have the base for a delicious soup.

Baked Potato Soup

It is starting to cool off with pleasant days and chilly nights – the perfect time for hearty soups and stews. Baked Potato Soup is one of our most requested recipes – it’s creamy and rich with the perfect balance of flavors. It’s a good way to use planned leftovers as well; have baked potatoes during the week and simmer a pot of this satisfying soup on the weekend. Start with 4 large baked potatoes, cooled. The recipe calls for scooping out the insides and discarding the peels, but I have long since abandoned peeling potatoes for anything. The peels are healthy so I include them in mashed potatoes, soups, potato salads, and just about everything else. Feel free to use only the white insides if you wish.

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

This soup, inspired by Olive Garden’s chicken and gnocchi soup, was a big hit at our house – I will definitely make it again. I served it with sliced whole grain bread and it was very filling. Ours ended up being a bit spicy and I can only deduce that when we chopped the onions and peppers for the freezer (I used sautéed onions and peppers from the freezer instead of chopping them when I made the soup), that we were also chopping jalapeno peppers with the same knife. Although unexpected, the extra kick was actually a nice addition to the soup.

Hash Brown Soup

This delicious soup is so easy that it is one of my "crisis meals" – meals that can be made in 20 minutes with ingredients that I keep on hand. If I have cooked ham in the freezer I often add a cup of ham to the soup.

Cheeseburger Soup

This delicious and easy soup is featured in our Busy Mom Menu.  

White Chicken Chili

This White Chicken Chili is delicious and a great way to use up leftover chicken. We are using cooked chicken from the freezer, but when I buy a rotisserie chicken, I make broth from the carcass (just simmer overnight with water in a crockpot) and use the broth and leftover chicken in soups like this.

Layered One Dish Supper

This one dish meal is perfect for a cold winter night and can be made in a slow cooker if you prefer. Allow at least 3 hours for baking time if cooking in the oven and 7-8 hours if cooking in a slow cooker on high.
