Potato Leek Soup

October 9, 2012

Today was one of those dreary days.  The kind of day where it is raining but only a drizzle. It was a damp, cloud covered day that makes you want to go back to bed and hide under the covers. The kind of day where you don’t feel like cooking, cleaning or being Martha Stewart. […]

Chicken Soup

April 27, 2012

Chicken soup is not just for winter. I’ll admit I am not a big soup fan in the summer especially the thick creamy kinds.  But I can eat chicken soup at any time of year. No, I am not going to serve it at my next summer barbecue but there is nothing better than a […]

Spicy Tomato Soup

December 21, 2011

I interrupt my cookie baking to profess my love for canned tomatoes. I constantly use canned tomatoes in the winter for stews, sauces and Italian gravy. But today I decided to use a can of Red Gold Tomatoes for a tangy tomato soup. Instead of having a boring grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, I spiced […]

Red Bean, Sausage and Pasta Soup

November 1, 2011

Beans are a big staple in my pantry. At any given time, I usually have five different varieties of beans in the cupboard.  I use them for many comfort food dishes but they also work well in salads. While comfort foods can be high in calories and fat, beans are low fat and filled with […]

Potato Leek Soup with Crispy Kielbasa

January 10, 2011

In the winter, I crave comfort foods such as soup, stews and bread. It’s hard to eat light when you want something hearty. Even though this soup isn’t low calorie diet food, there are no heavy creams or butter involved. It contains “good for you” ingredients such as olive oil and leeks. I put my […]

Smoky Lentil Florentine Soup

November 18, 2010

Once the weather gets colder, I get on a soup kick. Yes, it is that time of year! I could eat a hearty soup every night for dinner. It is a nice meal that can be made in advance and kept on the stove so that everyone gets a hot meal depending on their activity […]

Chicken Tortilla Soup

March 1, 2010

We had another snow storm last week and the kids had off from school again. We’ve had so much snow that the kids didn’t even want to play outside anymore. I guess they are finally bored of making snow men and snow forts. But I am not bored of making soup! I could make this […]

Lightened Up Broccoli Cheese Soup

December 21, 2009

Here in NJ, we had the snow storm of the decade this past weekend. So what do you do when you’re housebound for two days because of 2 feet of snow? You stay in your pajamas, cook, bake, eat, watch football and watch movies. Not so good for the behind though. But then you shovel […]
