Veggie Sausage Soup

Potato Fennel Cheese Soup

Tuesdays are particularly fun at our house!  There’s piano lessons, and of course it is produce ordering night.  This particular Tuesday was a special sort of challenge.  It involved fence defying goats, hopping fences after them, trudging through recently irrigated muddy mosquito filled pastures, getting the little Ms. Special Pants, Long lost bucking bronco, rodeo … Continue reading “Potato Fennel Cheese Soup”

Naturally my stew pack was screaming at me to make a bowl of comforting soup.  We got a couple of fallish days (okay… maybe it was just the morning) in Central Texas recently so I promptly pulled out my boots, scarves and made this fabulous soup. This soup really hit the spot with some bread … Continue reading “Soul Soothing Creamy Chicken Soup”

Fennel, Tomato and Sausage Soup

I love to share my fennel recipes because fennel is one of those things that gets a lot of confused looks at pickup.  I think that fennel is especially yummy in Italian recipes so I whipped up this soup on a recently fall evening.  As soon as weather gets cooler AT ALL, I fully embrace … Continue reading “Fennel, Tomato and Sausage Soup”

Swiss Onion Soup…move over Frenchy!

This soup has been haunting me for just over 25 years. I first had it when I was working night shifts at a large hospital in the Midwest. How often can you say you look forward to hospital food? It has taken me a few years but I have finally duplicated it! Its nutty, sweet, … Continue reading “Swiss Onion Soup…move over Frenchy!”

Sunny California Blend Cheese Soup

When I saw the California blend of veggies (carrots, cauliflower and broccoli) sitting In the refrigerator, I knew it had to become a beautiful soup. I kept remembering a soup from my childhood called Normandy blend soup. I remember it having big chunks of the California blend of veggies, and a velvety cheesy base. I … Continue reading “Sunny California Blend Cheese Soup”
