Guiness & Dubliner Cheese Soup

St Patty’s day is soon upon us and what screams Ireland more that Guinness and Dubliner Cheese?  Answer is easy – Nothing!!!  Many years ago, in the early 2000’s, I took an amazing trip with my cousin to Ireland.  Two young women driving around in rental car, on the wrong side of the road (and…

Easy Chicken Dumpling Soup

I consider this a great cheater recipe.  One that can easily be made on a weeknight and still be in bed in time for a good night sleep.  The base is going to be the same as other chicken soups, but the dumpling is really the cheater part of it.  Instead of making your own…

Sweet Potato & Carrot Soup

We have had peaks of a little warmth over the last month, but mother nature is surely telling us right now that it is still winter.  What was needed was something that would warm from within and this soup was it! I am excited when I get to use my immersion blender – it made…

Mushroom Swiss Burger Soup

It’s cold and soup is where it is at for the next unknown cold months.  Trying to mix it up this year and make more soups.  The inspiration for this soup came from wanting a burger, but not really wanting a burger.  I know that doesn’t make too much sense, but stay with me because…

White Bean Leek Soup

One day while looking through the history of this blog, I noticed that I may need to diversify a bit on what I make.  I really do like making new things, but I’ve been noticing a lot of those new things involve the same old things…mainly chicken. There is a good reason for that and…

Grilled Cheese & Gazpacho Soup

A New Twist on An Old Classic… Who doesn’t remember Kraft singles melted between toasted bread and served with Campbell’s Tomato Soup from their childhood?!  This standby helped kids through colds, was awesome – if you cut the grilled cheese right (triangles), and I’m sure helped parents out on those nights where almost nothing sounded…

Minestrone Soup

Some recipes still manage to astonish me as to how easy they are to make, how little time they take and how truly delish they are.  This Minestrone Soup recipe is one of those.  I found the recipe out of a Better Homes & Gardens magazine from this spring.  And the thing that I like most about…

Cream of Mango Soup

I am going to start off with….I know this sounds rather weird – Cream of Mango Soup??? Really???The answer is yes! yes! yes! This is so refreshing and perfect for summer. It involves so little time to put together and pairs nicely with a refreshing salad. I will say that this soup alone does not…

Home Made Chicken Noodle Soup

It seems like just instinct…the weather starts getting a little cooler…or you look up and realize it is time to switch the calendar to October…and it’s when you realize – it has become fall. Your weekends are filled with enjoying every last day that might be above freezing. Usually at apple orchards or vineyards watching…

Baked Potato Soup

If you are looking for a hearty soup….look no further. Baked Potato Soup is thick enough, it can almost be eaten with a fork and has just the right amount of kick from the pepper bacon that will leave you wanting more. I once heard Denis Leary joke about Irish Cuisine consisting of putting everything…
