Lasagna Soup

I have quite the love affair with both soup and lasagna. (My husband is fully aware of these ongoing affairs and he’s cool with it.) Even though my lasagna love is strong, I don’t always have the motivation or time to make it. So I improvise. Case in point, lazy ravioli lasagna,  individual spaghetti squash lasagnas, and now this delicious lasagna soup. […]

Italian Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup

  (New Years day, 2013)  While watching his beloved Stanford Cardinal lose in the Rose Bowl, our friend declares, “this is the best soup I’ve ever had.” (I can’t remember the specific below zero windchill day in the month of February, 2014)  My fiance came in from the cold to find this soup cooking. He […]

Leftover Turkey Noodle Soup with Homemade Turkey Stock

    Of all the life lessons I was taught, this is one of the most important. Never throw away the bones and carcass from the Thanksgiving turkey. I prefer to make my stock on Thanksgiving night.  Turkey bones, veggies, and aromatics are placed in a stockpot.  Simply covered in water, brought to a simmer, […]

Crushed Lentil Soup

  Of all the wonderful recipes my Lebanese mother has given me, this one is my favorite. Healthy, filling, and extremely flavorful, this classic Lebanese comfort food is something you can feel good about serving the entire family.  If you’ve never made homemade lentil soup, now’s the time to start. Lentils come in many colors.  […]

Roasted Vegetable Soup

High in flavor and low in effort.  At the end of the day, isn’t that what we all aspire towards? This soup achieves both.  Combine a variety of roasted […]

Southwestern Chicken Soup

  I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, I’m a soup girl!  I make homemade soup once a week.  Call me obsessed, go ahead, I won’t be offended…just make sure to be truthful and call yourself jealous at the same time. Soup is the quintessential one pot meal.  Healthy, comforting, and delicious…every time.  […]

Crock Pot Creamy Tomato Soup

  Tomato soup is nostalgic.  It always has been.  When the aroma of tomato soup fills my apartment, I am instantly taken back to my childhood kitchen table dunking a grilled cheese sandwich into my piping hot bowl of soup. This recipe is creamy and full of tomato flavor.  Made in the crock pot, it […]

Mom’s Homemade Minestrone Soup

  Those who know me well can attest to the fact that I am a soup junkie.  I could eat soup for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Growing up, my mom made this recipe regularly.  To this day, when I head back to Michigan, it’s no surprise to see that she has a big pot of […]

Summer Italian Sausage Soup

  Lately, Chicago weather has been throwing us a curve ball.  Last week was consistently ninety degrees, while this week has seen plenty of cool temperatures.  With this feeling of Fall in the air, I thought it a perfect time to post this delicious Italian sausage soup recipe.  I make multiple versions of this soup, […]
