Homemade Corn Chowder

I have been making a copycat recipe of the corn chowder they serve at Mimi’s Cafe in California for years.  Years.  I have only recently started adding and changing some things with the recipe, and I’m sharing the new and improved version of the soup today. Mimi’s Cafe is a chain, and there is one… Continue reading Homemade Corn Chowder

One Pot Lasagna Soup

We have a Halloween tradition.  Our great friends come over.  We have a tummy-warming dinner of soup or chili (I try to make a new one each year) with fresh bread or cornbread and salad, and then we head out with all the kiddos into the (usually rainy) weather for a night of trick-or treating.… Continue reading One Pot Lasagna Soup

Sicilian Chicken Soup

I have a husband home sick with a man cold today and that means two things: Nyquil and chicken soup.  I made a creamier chicken orzo soup last week, but today I wanted something a little brothier, but with enough substance to be our meal for the evening. I found this wonderful recipe on A… Continue reading Sicilian Chicken Soup

Winter White Root Vegetable Soup

I got this recipe from my Aunt, so I’m not sure what magazine or cook book it came… Continue reading Winter White Root Vegetable Soup

Black Bean and Steak Chili

Serve it up with some cornbread,… Continue reading Black Bean and Steak Chili

Weeknight Chicken Noodle Soup (still as good as Grandma’s)

This is one of my very favorite recipes, because not only is it quick and easy to make, but it seriously tastes like it has been simmering over a stove the entire day.  Chicken noodle soup doesn’t need to do that to be amazing.  It is homey and comforting, and one of my very favorites.… Continue reading Weeknight Chicken Noodle Soup (still as good as Grandma’s)

Chicken ‘n Dumplings

Confession: Before tonight, I had never eaten or made Chicken ‘n Dumplings.  Not only that, but I wasn’t even sure EXACTLY what it was.  I’m from Seattle.  We don’t see many chicken ‘n dumplings in these parts.  I guess it’s more of a Southern or Midwestern dish. I have pinned a recipe here and there… Continue reading Chicken ‘n Dumplings
