Dairy-Free Creamy Roasted Asparagus Soup

It used to be that I would not eat any asparagus. Then, my sister convinced me to try roasted asparagus…I have been eating it roasted and grilled every since. This spring, I had an abundance of asparagus…so much so that after eating it roasted, grilled, and wrapped in bacon, I decided to make it into […]

My Brunswick Stew

I enjoy eating Brunswick stew when I find it on the menu of barbecue joints/restaurants here in the South, but my sensitivity to acid (and being wimpy about spices) usually leaves me with a half-uneaten cup of stew and an allergic reaction. Thus, I decided to make my own and just not included as much […]

Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Soup

I love this soup! Yes, it is very delicious. Yes, it is full of vitamin C (and rather high in vitamin A also). Yes, it is creamy. Perhaps most importantly, it is versatile, like a good black dress. It can be dressed up and placed in espresso cups, shot glasses or similar elegant appetizer size […]

Dairy-Free Potato Soup

I thought I would share one of my new favorite soups–a potato soup. Granted cream of potato soup and loaded potato soups have always been some of my favorite soups, but this soup is different. This potato soup is not a cream of potato soup and it does not use any dairy substitutes. It does […]

Chili with Bison and Beans

Living in the eastern half of the United States, what used to be called buffalo is almost always referred to as bison now. However, I discovered while traveling in the western half of the United States several months ago that bison is still often referred to as buffalo. This difference has totally confused my six-year-old […]

Homemade Vegetable Alphabet Soup

What kid doesn’t love vegetable alphabet soup? Okay, I guess there are a number who won’t touch anything that looks like a vegetable. In fact, I was surprised as a child that not all my friends liked it because alphabet soup was my favorite. I loved making words and was always excited to see what […]

Corn Chowder

The sweet taste and yellow color of corn can add some sunshine to a soup on a dreary day.  While I love it in Vegetable Beef Soup, corn chowder can really lighten my spirits on a rainy, overcast day. This particular recipe  is a very creamy chowder uses the traditional bacon and potato base. I […]

Quick, Easy Butternut Squash Soup

There are many butternut squash recipes on the Internet. I have a couple in my cookbooks. All of the ones I read require you to cook the squash (usually by roasting it) before constructing the soup. While this is not difficult and does guarantee a fresh flavor, it does make the soup more time consuming. […]

Delightful Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

I have gone and done something totally crazy. No, I mean really crazy. I decided to make Cream of Mushroom soup. What is crazy about that?  It is one of those dishes that my mother-in-law makes, everybody loves, and often requests her recipe. It is bad enough that I once again tried to replicate her […]

Hearty Vegetable Beef Soup

January is National Soup Month. I have no idea how it came to be National Soup Month. It appears also to be National Oatmeal Month, National Tea Month, and National Slow Cooking month. Really, I had no idea. In honor of National Soup Month, I decided to make a few soups. I thought I would […]
