Kale & White Bean Soup with Sausage


This simple, delicious, freezer-friendly soup recipe was inspired by the fresh kale, carrots, and parsley I harvested a few weeks ago, and it is JAM-PACKED with flavor!  Both my kids and husband couldn't get enough, and I know this is one I will be making all the time. As an aside, I can't even tell you how [...]

Easy Slow-Cooked Split Pea Soup


It seriously does not get ANY easier than this delicious, hearty split pea soup.  My family loves it so much that we have started buying whole spiral-cut hams on a regular basis just so we can make it more often!  It actually ends up being a pretty good value, though, since an eight pound ham will provide [...]

Easy Freezer Ham & Bean Soup


Nothing warms up a cold winter day faster than a steaming bowl of delicious homemade soup!  Of course there's not always time to put in a full day of cooking to get that homemade soup just right.  I'm always looking for ways to make our family favorites faster and freezer friendly, and this "cheater" version [...]

Quick and Easy Taco Soup


It is always good to have a few recipes that you can whip up out of the pantry staples you already have on hand.  It's even better if those recipes also happen to be freezer friendly so that you can simply throw the ingredients together in a bag and freeze them for a later, busier [...]

One Pot Beef Stew


My husband and I often take turns cooking, but the rule is that the one who cooks also has to clean up.  And while I love to cook, I'm not always quite so enthusiastic about having to clean up afterwards. Enter the Dutch Oven, the lazy, er efficient chef's best friend.  Just one amazing pot [...]

Cream of Cabbage Soup {Recipe}


It is Worden Farm time for us again which means lots & lots of yummy fresh veggies all season long.  This year I opted for on-farm pickup rather than box delivery.  I love able to choose, and the girls absolutely adore going out to the farm.  It is quite a drive which means we don't [...]

Spicy African Sweet Potato & Peanut Butter Soup–YUM! Love this flavor combination! #vegetarian #soup #recipe

When it comes to soup, I just love unique flavor combinations.  I first tried a version of this African sweet potato & peanut soup many, many years ago out of this Vegetarian Times Low Fat & Fast recipe book, which was--back when I still used actual cookbooks instead of the internet--my very favorite cookbook ever. [...]

Creamy Dill Vegetable Soup


There is something about soup that is just good for the soul.  I made this soup last week Sunday after a very rough mommy day.  I don't even remember now what I was all atwitter about, but I was stressed and crabby, with too much to do and not enough time to get it done, [...]

Cheesy Cream of Broccoli Soup


First of all, I just have to say a huge thank you to all of you for being so incredibly sweet and encouraging and well, just plain wonderful in response to Wedneday's post.  I was overwhelmed and deeply touched by all your kind comments.  You guys are the best and after a few days of [...]

Winter Diet Soup


Am I the only one that ate a few too many goodies during the holidays?  This week I finally admitted to myself that the 7 or so pounds I put on during the month of December isn't going to just melt away on it's own like it did when I was in my 20's and [...]
