Soup

I know what you are thinking. It’s about dang time I shared a beer cheese soup recipe. What? Has it been over 2 years that this blog has been live, and I still have yet to post a beer cheese soup recipe? I know, I know. I should be ashamed of myself. I love, love, …

Happy Monday, everyone! How many of you have a full week off!? I remember growing up wondering why they didn’t just give us off from school the whole week. It wasn’t until college, that we finally got this “fall break” we all craved in our early school year days. It really didn’t make any sense. …

I don’t know about you guys, but I LOVE the leftovers from Thanksgiving dinner almost more than I love Thanksgiving dinner itself. It’s sort of strange actually, since I normally don’t love leftovers in general. Thanksgiving leftovers are a whole different ball game though. I don’t know why, but for some reason the food just …

I’m on quite the gnocchi kick lately. Can you tell? I go through obsessive phases, and this is just one of them. I’m sure it will dwindle out in a couple of weeks, but for the time being, I’m embracing all kinds of new ways to prepare gnocchi. Besides the normal douse gnocchi in sauce …

  When I make minestrone, I like to literally throw everything I have on hand into the pot. I don’t care what it is, I usually just throw it in anyway. This recipe makes a great use out of those leftovers. Minestrone is basically the Italian version of vegetable soup. Traditionally, you would not throw …

  I like the idea of serving soup for Thanksgiving dinner. It’s a great starter to a great meal. This soup will serve about 12, but it won’t serve 12 itty bitty bowls. I’m talking 12 SUBSTANTIAL bowls of soup. If you are serving this for Thanksgiving, I would most certainly suggest keeping it to …

  This soup blew our minds. Blew…our…minds. Maybe this was because I was expecting it not to come out so great. So glad that didn’t happen! Really though, this soup will blow your mind. It is surprisingly simple. It’s literally a “one-pot-meal,” and I don’t know about you, but I really like the sound of …
