Potato soup is the perfect meal for those cold, blustery, winter days. Add a little spice via Pepper Jack cheese and you’ve got a real winter winner! This is a recipe I got back in 2011 from a friend of ours, Kim. It originally came from her sister, Martha, and we’ve just sort of adopted it as our own. So, let’s make some pepper jack potato soup, shall we?![Read more…]

I have an obsession with all things cheeseburger. It’s a problem sometimes when it causes me to wake up at 3 am and seriously consider traveling somewhere to get one… And I’m always dreaming up ways to create dishes that taste like cheeseburgers…things like Cheeseburger Pizza and Cheeseburger Meatloaf,or the Pioneer Woman’s Cheeseburger Salad. And of course, this amazingly delicious Crock Pot Cheeseburger Soup.[Read more…]
I love soup…that should be evident by all the soup recipes on here. And I have to warn you – more are coming. It’s inevitable. Something about a hot and spicy, or thick and creamy, soup just gets me all excited. I’m a huge fan of enchiladas, so putting them in soup form just makes get all giddy. Add in the crock pot and I don’t quite know what to do with myself. I’m not sure where this obsession with my crock pot might take me…but wherever it is, I hope you’ll visit me. Put this crock pot chicken enchilada soup on your next meal plan. You’ll thank me later. 😉[Read more…]
Is there a particular recipe that you’ve ALWAYS tried to make and it never, ever tastes as good as your mama’s? You can follow her instructions to a T, and something is still missing? And it makes you stamp your foot and swear off making the recipe? Yeah…well for me, that recipe is Vegetable Beef Soup.
Not only does my Mama’s Vegetable Soup kick butt, my Grandmother’s is even better. And I’ve tried for YEARS to replicate it to no avail. They put something in there and they’re not telling me – the little boogers (I’m sure that’s not the secret ingredient, though). [Read more…]
I love lentils. I love soup. Therefore, I love lentils in soup. I also love lentils buttered. But then again, I love anything buttered. Bread. Muffins. Veggies. Dirt. Babies. Etc. Butter makes things better. And as Pioneer Woman says, “If some is good, more is better.” Amen.
Anyway, this is a good, cheap meal. Lentils are excellent for replacing the meat in recipes. They’re high in fiber and they still give you the protein you need to be full. They also give you something else…buy Beano. Ahem. [Read more…]
Let’s be honest…there are times when I’m just lazy. I might run out of Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup and be too busy to make more…or too lazy. I try to always keep some in the freezer, but sometimes I run out. I know it’s quick and easy to whip up a batch, but I’ll be honest again. If I see a recipe that calls for it and I know I have to make some because I’m out – I pretty much nix that recipe. Can I get a witness?!
While I just love cooking, and don’t mind making the homemade cream of soup, sometimes I just can’t get around to it…and for those times, there is this lovely stand-in made with dried ingredients. Having this in the cabinet makes me feel like I can conquer any cream-of recipe! It also makes me feel like I need a casserole – casseroles are where it’s at. [Read more…]
You didn’t think I’d leave pumpkin out of my crock pot day, did ya? No. I’m up to the challenge. I accept!
I’m usually a meat and potatoes kind of girl when it comes to soup. I don’t really like weird things in there – like those soups that call for clams and they leave the shell on? Ew. Totally not for me. I don’t like to have to work around a shell to get to my food, but thanks anyway.
This might qualify as a “girly” soup…it’s pureed. BUT, my manly man who doesn’t like his food pureed (weirdo) liked this soup just fine. And so did I. And so did Annie – she ended up eating out of my bowl. And for those of you who know me, you know this is a BIG step for me. Normally someone who eats out of my bowl or off my plate loses a finger.

For as long as I can remember, my Mama has made this soup. She has spoiled me. I can’t even touch the “tomato soup” in a can. What is that stuff anyway? It tastes like a big bowl of nothingness to me. Yuck! (No offense to my husband and dad who actually like that stuff.)
This recipe is SO easy and SO frugal that I just had to share it. I’m tickled that my mom is letting you in on some of her awesome recipes like this and Sausage Macaroni. Can you tell that I was fed well as a child? Annie loves this soup now too! She gobbles it down and begs for more. So, pull up to the computer with your grilled cheese and let’s make soup!

Today we have a great post from my colleague, Debra, from Sweet Kisses and Dirty Dishes. Just the name of this soup makes this pregnant mama happy. Chow down! Thanks Debra.
When Stacy asked me to do a guest post for Fix-It-And-Forget Friday, I was smile-from-ear-to-ear-and-giggle-a-bit excited. I immediately started to think about what I would make… and failed three attempts in a row (though don’t worry, the recipe below is a winner!) That lead to three *cough* interesting meals. The food would have been fine if it had been cooked correctly, but I did not know how to use the crockpot for those recipes.
It never occurred to me that I could not just pick up my slightly dusty crock pot and make an amazing meal. I tend to think I can do anything, which leads to a lot of humbling experiences. Ooops. Chicken and broth. Chicken and broth. My crock pot did not realize it could do anything else. Except that one time it cooked meatloaf in a hotel overnight, but that was unusual circumstances.

I’m just going to tell you, the name of this soup is really weird….and kinda gross. If I had seen it in a cookbook, I would have made a nasty face and passed it by as quickly as possible. Curried? Sweet Potato and Carrot curry? EWWW! My great friend, Erinn sent me this recipe with the recommendation that it was awesome. I trust Erinn. I trust her enough to make her nasty sounding Curry Soup – that’s love. And guess what? I loved it! It has an amazing blend of flavors and they all pair together wonderfully! [Read more…]
