Cook: Gorgonzola + Potato Soup

I think it’s safe to say that it’s officially soup season.  It’s been soup season up here for a while, but I’ve even heard from my Texas friends that it’s finally getting cooler down there, which means I can share this soup, encourage you to make it, and not have to make any disclaimers about … Continue reading

Sweet Potato Soup with Crispy Bacon

Don’t be mad at me.  I’m writing about soup in July.  I know! But if we can, for a moment, focus on the health benefits of soup versus the hot, comforting, not at all seasonally appropriate nature of soup, you’ll see that soup actually can be enjoyed in the height of summer.  Particularly when you are … Continue reading

Cook: Low-Fat Broccoli Cheddar Soup

Broccoli cheese soup is a classic.  It’s (mostly) universally liked, and why shouldn’t it be?  Most of the time it’s cheese soup with a little bit of broccoli.  Sign me up. That said, broccoli cheese soup is most of the time so loaded up with cheese and cream that it completely negates the healthy habit … Continue reading

Cook: Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Soup week continues with quite possibly my favorite recipe of 2013.  This creamy butternut squash soup is a dream; it tastes just like Fall, it is super healthy, satisfying, and the flavor is out of this world.  I’ve made it three times since I took these pictures and every time I swoon at how incredibly … Continue reading

Cook: Spinach, Tomato, and Tortellini Soup

One of my favorite things about this time of year is that it’s appropriate to eat soup at least once a week. Soup is one of my favorite foods–it’s flavorful, it’s light, and it’s endlessly customizable.  I’ve been known to order a nice hot bowl of tomato soup in the middle of Texas in July, … Continue reading
