• Instant Pot Cheesy Cauliflower Potato Soup

    From start to finish in under one hour, this potato soup has a delicious and creamy sauce, soft chunks of potato, and a secret ingredient. I guess if it’s in the name it’s not that secret. On Saturday while we were waiting for the winter storm, I was craving homemade soup. I tried this recipe with the thought that if it doesn’t flop maybe I would share it on the blog. Not only did it not flop, but I couldn’t stop eating it. This soup is the stuff my chunky potato soup dreams are made of!     Chunky vs. Creamy Most of the potato soups I’ve had and loved…

  • Creamy Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

      Today I have a recipe for you that is warm and hearty and perfect to combat all of the sweets that we have been eating. This soup comes together quickly, so it is perfect for those busy days around the holidays when you don’t have extra time to spend in the kitchen.     Tender bites of vegetables, chicken, and gnocchi are all encompassed in a light and creamy broth. This soup is delightfully flavorful and creamy, while not being too heavy. Another great thing about this soup is that it can be made, start to finish, in one pot. Which means fewer dishes to wash and more time to…

  • White Lasagna Soup

      Y’all, it’s officially soup season and I’m so excited! I have big plans to try lots of new soup recipes this winter. Today I’m sharing with you a soup that is full of simple and hearty ingredients because nothing warms you up on a dreary day like creamy homemade soup. And this White Lasagna Soup is creamy and tastes like comfort in a bowl.     Don’t be scared away by the long list of ingredients, they are mostly pantry staples. I find especially with soups that it is helpful to prep the ingredients before you get started, so you have everything you need ready to go.     I like…

  • Loaded Broccoli, Potato and Cheese Soup

    Now I know that soup season is almost over, but I needed to sneak this one in before spring officially or unofficially comes. You can thank me later. This soup is full of vegetables and unlike a lot of broccoli and cheese soups that are smooth, there are actually chunks of vegetables in there. But what puts this soup over the edge is a delicious cheese sauce that is made with real cheddar cheese…no processed cheese in this soup! This soup cooks quickly and you can do most of the prep ahead of time, making it perfect for a busy weeknight dinner. I like to chop the vegetables (except for the potatoes), shred the cheese and…

  • Classic Chili with Beans

    A couple weeks ago when we were snowed in during snowstorm Jonas I decided that we needed chili. Now the hubby doesn’t love beans, so I was the only one who actually enjoyed the chili, but it was delicious.     There’s something about the freezing cold weather that makes me crave warm and comforting soups and chili. For most of you, there is still time to enjoy this recipe before spring comes!     This chili is great topped with shredded cheese or served over macaroni and cheese like my grandma did. My grandma didn’t enjoy cooking, but one of the meals she would make when we came to visit was chili over macaroni…
