French Onion SoupFrench Onion

Oh baby, I love onions! I could eat them raw, baked, blanched, battered, fried, grilled, barbecued you name it. But French onion soup is at the top of my list of onion recipes. The warm gooey cheese sinking the crusty bread into the savory, beefy, oniony flavored broth … MMM! This is my favorite winter soup!

Roasted Cauliflower SoupRoasted Cauliflower Soup

Don’t be afraid, I know it sounds fancy but this was a hard one to put at 2nd place. This soup changed my mind about cauliflower. Every other time I have eaten cauliflower I just did not enjoy it. This soup is absolutely delicious. I omitted the prosciutto for bacon and left out the almonds and it was perfect for my taste buds. This is a crowd pleaser and if you want to impress someone with your cooking skills this winter but with little effort and big reward this is the recipe to use!

Butternut Squash SoupButternut Squash Soup

Squash is kind of a foreign food to me. I have not experimented much with squash but acorn and butternut are the ones I always go for. The first time I had butternut squash soup was when my mother brought home a store bought container of it on a “no cook” night. It was amazing! This recipe is delicious. If you have never tried butternut soup this is the one to try. It’s easy and will warm your belly right up!

White ChiliWhite Chicken Chili

Chicken chili doesn’t sound very hearty. At least that’s what my boyfriend thought before this recipe. When people think of chili they almost always think of beef chili. But boy I’ll tell you this white chicken chili will change your mind! It is superfast and the left overs are just as good as the first day. This is a must try recipe!

Cocunut Chicken SoupCoconut Chicken Curry Soup

I don’t know about you but my boyfriend and I are in love with Thai food. I mean we have been to probably all of the Thai restaurants around our town. This soup has a creamy coconut flavor that just doesn’t get any better than paired with rice and a few lime wedges! I use curry paste instead of powder and microwaved some carrots, chopped them and threw them in to add some more color and crunchy. Superb!

Baked Potato SoupBacked Potato Soup

I had to put this recipe on the list because it is just the best winter soup to eat curled up under a blanket with your honey. We love this recipe because its hearty and cheesy and we always have the best night sleep after a huge serving! Try this recipe please, it will become a favorite, I just know it!
