French Spring Soup
I make this during asparagus season when my husband's patch is producing a lot. It is very fresh tasting, and the longer it sits, the better it is.
Fresh Asparagus Soup
A creamy asparagus soup accented with yogurt, lemon, and Parmesan cheese. Everyone loves it! You can substitute soy products to make this recipe vegan.
Granny's Homemade Noodles
These are what my grandmother made. I love them. You can add chicken or beef and whatever vegetables you want.
Rich Make-Ahead Turkey Gravy
If you're like me, I can't stand the last-minute rush and expectations in making the turkey gravy. You have one shot and it better be good! Well, this takes out all the stress of that mad dash. This gravy base can be frozen or refrigerated for five days and is honestly the best turkey gravy I've ever had. You dirty a few pots and pans, but it sure beats the rush of preparing it on Thanksgiving Day. Let me know what you think. Bon appetite!
Split Pea Smoked Turkey Soup
For those who don't like pork — this slow cooker split pea soup has a nice smoky flavor when you use a smoked turkey leg.
Bratwurst, Potato and Cabbage Soup
Italian sausage or regular pork sausage also work well with this soup. Serve hot with chunks of good crusty bread, if desired.
Chef John's Creamy Mushroom Soup
Mushroom soup is creamy, rich, and flavorful with caramelized mushrooms.
Simple Cucumber Soup
The most simple yet one of the best soups I had so far. A simplified version of my mum's cucumber soup. No need for salt, pepper, or seasonings, just a good vegetable broth. I like to have it with a good slice of toasted bread and some good cheese.
Slow Cooker Onion Soup
This is about the best onion soup I've been able to come up with. Tastes better than any restaurant onion soup I've ever had.
Husband's Grandmother's Shrimp Gumbo
My husband's grandmother taught me this recipe. She actually cooked for Cajun festivals. She used 40-gallon trash cans for her stock pots. People would line up for this authentic Cajun specialty. This recipe serves eight but multiplies well. Serve gumbo over cooked white rice.
Karyn's Cream of Crab Soup
This simplified crab bisque uses shortcuts for an easy, rich bowl of soup.
