Soup is a very satisfying meal to have on a chilly night and it is always good to have a simple soup recipe on hand when you want something that is both satisfying and easy to make.

Creamy Leek and Mushroom Soup

Leek and Potato Soup

On a chilly fall day, the idea of spending a good amount of time in the kitchen preparing a roast or a slow-cooking batch of stew sounds like a wonderful one.

Last year, the soup course was some kind of potato soup that was uninspiring and perhaps a bit too ... Read More »

Hot and Sour Cabbage Soup

Soups can be beautiful in person, but unlike most solid foodstuffs, they can be extremely difficult to “style” for photographs. Soups that are a solid color and smooth in texture are usually the most photogenic. Soups that have a lot of components, such as lentil soup or chili, tend to look overly busy, like a jumble of random, mushy ingredients. This soup fell into the ... Read More »

Elise’s Gazpacho

When Alanna and Kalyn told me that they were going to make gazpacho today, I couldn’t resist joining in with my blogging buddies. As far as I’m concerned, gazpacho is one of the best soups that you can have during the summer.
