I know I have been rambling on about soups and stews, and how many I have planned for the upcoming season. Are you tired of it already?
No way right?
Good!! Because I decided that I wanted to share with you the 10 favorite soups and stews from this past year.
Some of these are family favorites, some of them are recipes that you all have told me that you loved and wanted to make again and again. So I wanted to put them all together for you.
Slow Cooker Campfire Stew
A flashback to my days as a girl scout. Of course the only thing I remember from those days is food. Well food and the silly songs. But I will save you from my singing and just share the food with you. This is a keeper! I mean soup + slow cooker = easy peasy heaven in a bowl.
I love this soup. If you are looking for something to fill you up and make you feel all warm and comfy inside you have GOT to give this one a try!
When I came up with my Turkey Sausage and Orzo Stuffed Peppers there was a little voice in the back of my head that told me it would make a great soup. Why it took me so long to actually make it is beyond me! It is all of those stuffed pepper flavors in a bowl!!
So this is the deal. Kevin doesn't like pot pie. I know, what is wrong with this guy? But he really isn't a big soup fan either. Why I decided to put two things that he is not that fond of together? I like to live life on the edge! Shock of shocks.....he loved it!
Cream of mushroom soup is a childhood favorite of mine. But of course it was the Cambell's soup version. Nice and fatty and salty woohoooo! So I knew I had to come up with a healthier version. This one actually came from a friend of mine that lives in England, and boy is it good!
Cream cheesy broccoli soup in a toasty bread bowl. Be still my heart!!
I had seen Paula Deen make a lasagna soup that made me drool but knew I didn't want it to be as heavy. So I set to work and this is what I came up with. The result is a soup that I want to slurp from the bowl. Who needs a spoon?
OK this is me trying to get fancy. It is my newest treasure in a bowl. It uses a whole bottle of red wine. Ummm hellooooo!! Over some nice creamy mashed potatoes, it is beef stew heaven!
One of my first stew recipes, it has become a family favorite that gets made as soon as the temperature dips.
Seriously, you have heard of Jewish penicillin right? My Grandmother used to tell me that is what this is. Every time I had a sniffle, out came the soup pot. It makes all the bad stuff go away and now makes me feel like Grandma is right here babying me.
