Oxtail Soup or Stew

My paternal grandmother used to make oxtail soup.  When I was 6 or 7 years old I remember thinking that her “oxtail soup”  must be just another name for beef  vegetable soup because no one had oxen anymore.  Afterall, I had seen old pictures of my maternal grandfather with his oxen pulling trees that had been […]

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

Today’s post is brought to you by my husband.  He loves French onion soup and has had time recently to play around with making it in a slow cooker.  His biggest lesson learned about making any kind of French onion soup is to TASTE EACH OF THE ONIONS YOU USE IN THE SOUP TO MAKE […]

Roasted Tomato Soup

There is something wonderfully comforting about a bowl of soup on a rainy day, particularly tomato soup. Tomato soup is heart-warming on a few levels. First, the rich red color with its acidic kick can brighten the dreariest of days. Second, tomatoes are a heart-healthy food full of lycopene, vitamins E and C, potassium, and […]

Stuffed Pepper Soup

I love stuffed peppers, but I need to make a confession: I love the stuffing much more than the peppers. In fact, I usually only eat a little of the pepper. I have tried making the stuffing without the peppers and it just did not work. It needed the pepper flavoring permeating the dish to […]

Dairy-Free Condensed “Cream” Soup Alternative

Some of those classic casseroles that call for canned condensed cream soups have been absent from my table for years. The primary reason is my milk-allergic family members (primarily my husband who loves those classic casseroles and has a difficult time not eating them when they are available).   Another reason is my attempt to […]

Beef Shank Stew

My memories of homemade beef stew are kind of fuzzy. I remember my paternal grandmother making it, but I think I was too young to really pay much attention to how she did it. I remember my mother making it in a cast iron skillet, but it was not something she made very often. She […]

Easy, Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Easy, simple homemade chicken noodle soup is great on a cold day and/or when you have a cold. If you have cooked chicken and homemade stock/broth in the freezer, you can easily have truly made from scratch chicken soup whenever you want. If not, you can either cook it all that day or supplement with […]

Black Bean and Ham Soup

On a cold, dreary day warm soup can be so comforting. It is even better when it is a delicious, healthy, and inexpensive soup. Black bean and ham soup is surprisingly easy to make especially considering how splendid it tastes. I made a few changes to a recipe I found in The Greenbrier Cookbook. Like […]

Chicken and Dumplings

What image comes to mind when you hear the words “Chicken and Dumplings?” Well, my image looks something like this: Your image of chicken and dumplings may be very different. Not only are there many variations on what else should be included in the dish besides chicken and dumplings (or if anything else should be […]

Strawberry Soup

My seven-year-old daughter wanted to enter a soup/stew contest that they were having at church. Although she wanted to create her own recipe using some avocados I just bought, my husband talked her into making a recipe for cold strawberry soup he found somewhere on the Internet. She loves strawberries…so she agreed. They had to […]
