Cioppino - love the stuff and try it at most new restaurants we hit if it's on the menu. Also make it at home regularly and the contents can vary.

This one's super simple but yummy - chicken or veg broth with cheese tortellinis and fresh spinach and garlic.

And, well... I love the comfort food of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches, but upgraded! I've joked with my husband that I want to do a photo book of that from all the great places we eat. Can't throw my own food into the book cause I may be a good cook when it comes to flavor, but presentation was never my strong suit.

Charles is right! Did our first butternut squash with ginger last fall which was the first squash soup we'd done and loved it. Have squash in the pantry right now waighting for the right weekend!

Really the Thai and Vietnamese soups but haven't done them ourselves yet.

Grandma's turkey soup:


Start with a partially eaten turkey, best found after Thanksgiving, usually around Friday night

Remove extra meat and skin, set aside

boit the thing until the bones fall apart, strain, that's your broth

add back the turkey, also, potatoes, carrots, onion

add 1-2 cans tomato soup (undiluted), some ketchup, worchester (sp) sauce

Let it simmer until potatoes are tender.

We always look forward to this more than the turkey for the holidays!

Here's a quick and easy soup:


saute onions in olive oil

then saute zuchini or yellow squash

then add canned beef broth, some canned tomatoes (along with the liquid)

several cans Great Northern Beans (drained first)

Let boil and simmer, then add a package frozen Italian meatballs

Great on a cold night and quick and easy to make

Of all the soups I made last winter, this was my family's favorite. It's Alton Brown's easy recipe for Garden Vegetable Soup from the Food Network Website. I cheated and used frozen corn. And I always use canned tomatoes in soup. My favorite brand is Muir Glen Roasted Organic chopped tomatoes. That product gives a great depth of flavor to everything you put it in. More expensive than other supermarket brands, but totally worth it. One of the times I made it late in the year, I also used frozen green beans (I buy the french ones from Trader Joes). No one could tell the difference. I also made this with chicken broth once, vegetable broth once, a mixture another time. All were fine. I buy the organic broth that comes in the boxes. I'm not picky about brand, but if it's chicken, I prefer the organic. (You can buy Pacifica brand chicken broth at Costco for a reasonable price). I really don't use all that many organic things, but to my taste the chicken broth and the tomatoes are much better quality when they're labeled organic.

Crab chowder
Spiced Puy Lentil
Carrot and Ginger

I make all kinds of soups depending what I have in the crisper.. I used to favor creamy soups like butternut squash but now I prefer broth based soups.

New potato, green beans, and polish sausage chunks in a clear spicy chicken broth -- really hits the spot on a cold night.

Tortilla soup - made with chiles, zucchini, tomato, shredded chicken - served over avocado slices and under some melting jack cheese & tortilla strips -- really hits the spot on a cold night.

Tom Yum Goong - shrimp, ginger, lemon grass, lime juice, chile, those lovely canned chinese mushrooms... This is what I want when I'm sick.

Chili with lots of garnishes like cheese, sour cream, scallions and crackers -- really hits the spot on a cold night.

I'm sure more will come to me!
