Beef Stew

Beef Stew

There are a few things in this stew that make it extra special–fresh leeks and the BBQ 3000 seasoning blend from Penzeys Spices (http://www.penzeys.com/). I cannot rave enough about the amazing spices at Penzeys! If there isn’t a shop near you, you can order their spices online. Worth the extra effort, in my opinion. I found this recipe...

Cream of Mushroom and Barley Soup

This creamy, yet healthy, soup will wow you! My toddler literally gobbled it up. Serve it steaming hot along side fresh baked bread. (Of course it’s even better with a dash of Tabasco!) The original recipe comes from Eating Well magazine, but I added my touch to this recipe quite a bit! Ingredients: 1/2 cup...

Beef Barley Soup

I recently found this recipe in Martha Stewart magazine. I was looking for a hearty-stick-to-your-bones-winter-day-kinda soup. And this is it! I changed a few things, but most of the recipe still belongs to Martha. Serve this fabulous hot soup with a crusty roll on a blustery cold day. Ingredients: 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive...

Minestrone Soup

This is THE BEST minestrone soup recipe I’ve ever tried! My Mom gave it to me years ago (thanks Mom!) It’s a knock-off recipe from a well known Italian restaurant in Michigan, called Lelli’s (thanks Lelli’s!). Use the freshest ingredients you can find–it makes a big difference.  I love the method of pureeing a...

Smoky Cabbage Soup

Forget plain old cabbage soup–try this smoky version made with bacon and smoked paprika! It’s packed with flavor and veggies. Look for smoked Spanish paprika in the spice aisle of your grocery store–it has more depth of flavor than regular paprika. This soup is fantastic served with fresh bread smeared with cream cheese. Ingredients: 4 pieces...

By now you must know how much I love Mexican food. Well this KP original soup is no exception–I love it! And if you go lightly on the toppings, it’s a fairly healthy way to enjoy Mexican. This soup cooks up in less than an hour and is equally delicious right away or as...

This was my first attempt at lentil soup and I gotta tell ya–I’d enter this soup in a contest. It’s that good!!! It’s completely vegetarian, and you’ll never miss the meat. This soup fills you with hearty lentils and Indian inspired spices. Be sure to serve it topped with creme fresh and chopped chives....

Split Pea Soup

Did you know that the Dutch are famous for split pea soup? I didn’t learn that until I lived there. “Erwtensoep” is served seasonally, when the weather turns cold and a thick, hearty soup is just what you’re in the mood for. In Holland the soup is served with a few slices of dark wheat...

Baked Potato Soup_ss

Rich, creamy, comfort food! This soup has all the flavors of a loaded baked potato and is ready in about an hour. I found this recipe in a magazine years ago, but don’t know which one. To re-heat leftovers, stir in a few drop of water to eliminate thickness. Recipe makes 8 servings. Ingredients:...

Cauliflower and Cheddar Soup_ss

Here it is–my Aunt Lori’s famous cauliflower soup recipe. And it’s famous for a reason–it’s scrumptious! (I only tweaked a few things Aunt Lori!) This creamy soup is easy to make and ready in under an hour. If you want an extra burst of flavor, top each bowl of soup with freshly chopped chives...
