The weather has been rather miserable the past few weeks. The rain hasn’t seemed to stop for more than the occasional half hour, and even when it does, they sky is still grey and dreary. So naturally all I have been waiting to do is curl up inside with a blanket and eat nothing but soups and stews for dinner.
This week I was feeling a little under the weather, so I decided to make a big pot of my favourite Flu Fighter Chicken Noodle Soup! I discovered the recipe for this soup a couple of years ago, and it has since become a staple of mine to help me make it through the cold and flu season.
I think split pea and ham soup might just be my favourite soup. It’s not a particularly pretty soup, but it’s packed with flavour and doesn’t require a bunch of fancy or complicated ingredients.
While visiting my family over thanksgiving weekend, a lovely friend of ours gave us a heap of vegetables fresh from her garden including some leeks, a big bag of potatoes, squash, eggplant and some fresh bay leaves. The first thing I made with them was this creamy potato leek soup with bacon.
This hearty hamburger soup is the ultimate comfort food. It’s simple, easy to make, and a perfect way to warm up on a chilly fall day. I didn’t even know hamburger soup was a thing until I tried it at my in-laws for the first time.
