Sausage Noodle Soup

I threw this sausage noodle soup together on a whim a couple of months ago. It has beef broth, chicken broth, vidalia onion, egg noodles, kielbasa sausage, and spinach inside. For a basic soup, it is very hearty and quite tasty. My husband loved it, although next time I will use fresh spinach instead of […]

(From Scratch) Chicken Noodle Soup

I have made chicken noodle soup countless times over the years, but this was the first time making my own stock. It is much simpler than it sounds, and all you need is some bone-in chicken breasts and a large pot of water to get you started. Bring the chicken to a boil, and simmer […]

Butternut Apple Vegetable Harvest Soup

Two weeks ago, I bought a huge butternut squash at the fruit market. My initial intentions were to make oven baked fries out of it, but I changed my mind when I found a soup recipe on allrecipes.com. I knew my butternut squash had way more than two cups of flesh, so I doubled the […]

Slow Cooker Vegetable Beef Chili

This chili is a play on one of my favorites: hearty & healthy turkey chili. Other than adding extra peppers and using some different beans, the base is basically the same. Ground beef is featured this time around in lieu of the ground turkey. (Both meats are easily interchangeable for this recipe).   5.0 from […]

Slow Cooker Cream Cheese Chicken Chili

I love trying out new slow cooker recipes. When I saw the cream cheese chicken chili on Plain Chicken and then again on Six Sisters’ Stuff, I couldn’t wait to try it. I have a very large slow cooker, so when I make recipes in it, I often double the ingredients to make a huge […]

Olive Garden Pasta e Fagioli Soup (Copycat recipe)

When I saw this recipe on Food.com, I just knew I had to try it. My parents and I are big fans of the soup and salad special at Olive Garden (although they go more frequently than I; my husband prefers Red Lobster when given the option). For the price, there’s not much beating an […]

Fresh Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Here is a wonderful recipe for Slow Cooker Corn Chowder. Not much could taste better than amplifying the taste of this chunky soup by using FRESH corn kernels straight off the cob. Use half and half instead of whole milk, good quality bacon, and you will have the richest, freshest, most satisfying corn chowder out […]

Slow Cooker Hearty & Healthy Turkey Chili

Hearty & Healthy Turkey Chili It may be late April, but here in western New York we are experiencing a lovely phenomenon known as a nor’easter. It’s hard to believe we had sixty and seventy degree temperatures last week, as today is a chilly thirty-two degrees out. Speaking of chilly, nothing warms me up better […]

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder

Slow Cooker Corn Chowder If you are a fan of vegetables and like thickened soups, then I have a great recipe for you. This corn chowder is chock full of beautiful red potatoes, sweet pepper, and two types of corn (creamed and kernels). Freshly crisped bacon and a hint of brown sugar compliment each other […]

Slow Cooker Cream of Mushroom Soup

Slow Cooker Cream of Mushroom Soup      I love making soups in my slow cooker, especially on freezing cold days like we’ve been having. This was the first time trying my hand at homemade mushroom soup. I’ve made the kind out of the can for years, but after having this it’s like comparing apples […]
