Grandma Carol’s Chili

First of all, Happy Birthday to my little sister!  We love you lots and hope your day has been amazing 🙂

On a cold winter’s day, there’s not much like a pot of chili simmering away for dinner.  Add a side of corn bread, and you’ve got a meal!  It’s an easy soup to toss together, and the longer it cooks, the better it tastes.

French Onion Soup

When I first set out to make French Onion Soup, I didn’t know where to start.  And my husband has never been a fan, so I haven’t made it much.  I looked at just about every resource I could find on the internet (recipe collection sites, food blogs, etc.) and several cookbooks in my kitchen.  What came to be was, in my opinion, some pretty tasty French Onion Soup.  Now, I would like to say that this was the soup that turned my husband back on to French Onion Soup, but, alas, he wouldn’t even try a spoonful.  Still, if French Onion Soup is your thing, you’ll have to try it because I think you’ll find it very good.

Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Soup

Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese Soup should be in your soup rotation.  Even my 2 1/2 year old (who doesn’t like many vegetables) will finish a bowl.  It makes an excellent accompaniment to a hot sandwich, but is hearty enough to stand on its own as a main dish itself.  Serve with some Garlic and Cheese Biscuits or a loaf of crusty French bread and you’ve got a meal!

Taco Soup

Taco Soup is one of those recipes that is so simple, yet tastes so yummy!  This soup is great for a cold, blustery day, when all you want to do is wrap up in a blanket and eat a big bowl of a hearty soup.  And, it’s simplicity makes it a perfect weeknight meal.  Brown some ground beef with onions, open some packets and some cans, heat it all up, and “ta-da!”  Dinner is ready!

Chicken Tortilla Soup

I’m so excited that the weather is finally starting to cool down.  I don’t know about the weather where you are, but here in Kansas things have been, well, HOT.  And then hot a few days more.  Many cities approached or broke records for the number of 100-degree days.  I think it’s a little sad when I started getting excited about the weather report… “Hey, it’s only supposed to be 90 tomorrow!!!”.

Now, things have begun to cool down a little.  Most nights the low is around 40-50 degrees, and it makes for beautiful fall evenings.  “Soup weather”, I call it.  And it’s one of my favorite seasons of the year!
