Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Yesterday was a bit of a surprise snow day. It was supposed to snow a little bit, but not all day long. I took half the day off to work on some projects around the house, so I knew I wouldn't want to spend a lot of time making dinner at the end of the… Continue reading Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato & Tortellini Soup

I tried to make a tortellini soup in the slow cooker a few years ago after seeing it on one of those Facebook videos. The recipe called for cream cheese, which never really did anything but become a chunky mess. It was definitely a fail. I've wanted to make my own version (that would actually… Continue reading Slow Cooker Creamy Tomato & Tortellini Soup

Southwestern Tomato Soup

A friend has surgery recently and was really craving a flavorful soup, but it had to be entirely pureed (cheese in the photo was my test bowl - cheese is optional.) At first, I was going to try to make something similar to my chicken tortilla soup, but I didn't have all of the ingredients.… Continue reading Southwestern Tomato Soup

Ma’s Ham & Bean Soup

I posted my mother in law's ham recipe the other day, and I recommended saving the unused sauce, the leftover ham, and pan juices for later. This is why! You can make this on the stovetop in a large pot of dutch oven, or in an extra large crock pot. I'll admit we've sometimes had the… Continue reading Ma’s Ham & Bean Soup

Improvised Two Bean Soup – Saved from Disaster

I ended concocting this yesterday when I needed something to bring to a potluck event. I made potato salad, but I didn't like how it tasted. It ended up turning out fine, but I needed to get something else together in case the potato salad was a total fail. It seemed like my normally stockpiled… Continue reading Improvised Two Bean Soup – Saved from Disaster
