Soups On! A Dozen of Winter’s Best Soups

During the winter months I try to make a pot of soup each week. Here are some of my favorites.  Our all-time family favorite is the lasagna Soup.  If you haven’t ever made it … now is the time!

What is your favorite soup? If you send me the recipe I will share it!

Have a Souper Week!

Saturday’s Soup: 9 Can Vegetable Soup

I am a soup snob. There, I’ve said it and it is true. I don’t like soup out of a can.  I never use to even eat soup, unless I made it myself. (Snob) Not Campbells, Progresso, just-like-home made, none of it.
Then one day I received a newsletter from my health insurance carrier.  Inside the newsletter was a recipe for 9 Can Vegetable Soup with the advertisement: Try this simple and delicious vegetable soup

I scanned the list of “cans” and wasn’t interested until I saw this nutritional info.
Servings per recipe 12
Per Serving:
Calories: 127.8
Total Fat: 0.8 g
Cholesterol: 2.4 mg
Sodium 602.9: mg
Total Carbs:  25.9g
Dietary Fiber: 4.9g
Protein: 5.1g

In my book those stats make for a pretty healthy main dish. I also started thinking about the convenience of keeping these 9 cans on the pantry shelf and having a meal ready in the flash of a can opener!  During the holidays — after a long day at work, a super long day shopping, an ever-so-late dinner after picking up the kids, attending at least one ball game on the way home and still having homework to do.  These 9 cans can sit on the pantry shelf and are easily dumped into the crock pot in the dark of the early morning.   Oh, but what about the taste? That is after all, MY priority.

I bought the cans, opened them up (in about 5 minutes) and placed them in my crock pot.  I cooked the soup on low for 8 hours.  Oh my gosh, what a surprise! You are going to have to just trust me that this soup will rival any homemade.  Buy the cans, sit them on the shelf — then make this soon!  You won’t be sorry.

The Weekend Round Up


Welcome to the Weekend

Whew! It’s December and I am thrilled about the prospect of my first giveaway coming next Monday! What better time of the year to start a free cookbook giveaway than December? Do you like cookbooks? Do you have a cookbook collection? Do you buy a cookbook just to look at the pictures? I have four different wonderful cookbooks that I want to giveaway in December. But, I need your help! In order to be registered for the drawing, I need you to subscribe to this blog and then leave a comment on the designated drawing day. For instance, next Monday (December 5) I will post a picture of the first book to be given away. All you need to do is leave a comment that day to be entered in to the drawing. The “catch” is that we need to have 25 comments in order to give the book away. Monday’s post will have a question you can answer in the comment section.  Once you send in the comment you are automatically entered in the drawing.  Drawing will be done by Random.Org and winners will be notified via email.  Please get your friends, co-workers, mom, neighbor, anyone connected to cyberspace, to also leave a comment so that we can get at least 25 and give away the book!!! Easy as that! I hope you will share this blog with family and friends and help make the giveaway a big success this month. All giveaway drawings done by Random.Org.

Looking back over this week we started out with Chili Three Ways and ended with Sugar Cookies as a way to kick-off the holiday baking season!

We said good-bye to the last of the Thanksgiving Turkey with my all around make-it-anytime favorite What Have You Turkey and Rice Casserole.

And don’t forget about the Brussels Sprout Slaw that I got from The Brown Eyed Baker!

But there is no doubt in my mind this is the recipe we have all been waiting for!  Seriously, you should make these cookies this season, they are truly the best sugar cookies I have ever made!  Thanks again Sandy!

Oh wait … there’s more!

Have a blessed weekend and Happy Cooking!

The Weekend Round-Up

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.  John 14:6

I am so thankful that God closes doors no man can open AND  God opens doors no man can close!  Thank you Lord!




Have you recovered yet from the feasting of yesterday?  We certainly had a blessed day spent in beautiful fall weather and lots of good food.  I hope your day was everything you wanted it to be also.

One of the cutest things I have seen this Thanksgiving came from the ladies at Our Best Bites.  These two women have a great website filled was fabulous pictures and recipes.  But this season their little turkey family made a bit hit all over the internet.  I didn’t make them but I am totally counting this recipe in for next year! Aren’t they just darling?!!

Looking back here is my blogging week in pictures.  If you click on the picture it will take you to the day the recipe was posted.

When everything turkey gets too much:  Kickin’ Chili Soup

It’s not too late for a fun and delicious “big breakfast” this weekend!

Many Blessings & Happy Cooking
