Soup

You might not think I like to cook since I don't blog about it much - but I do. With Fall and Winter coming I'm looking for good soup recipes. My favorites are those that are a meal by themselves and broth vs. cream based (I am still trying to lose a few pounds after all). Any good recipes or sites you'd like to share?

Tonight we'll eat homemade Tortilla Soup and cornbread. Yep, there's a piece missing - since the cornbread is from a mix, I had to taste test it before serving it to Keith!

Later, I'll probably load the HeartStrings top finished the other night - it will be #10 of 10 once it's quilted!

Your soup looks so yummy! We eat a lot of crock pot soups and stews this time of year. I just posted a recipe for stuffed pepper soup on my blog. You can find the recipe here... http://hangingonbyaneedleandthread.blogspot.com/2008/09/as-promised.html

I love soups. I love to use barley in my winter soups. I just use stock, & plenty of vegetables, with some lentils, split peas, or barley.
I see cornbread in American recipes, & ideas. Not sure what it is?

I have found that by saving the broth left over from baking a ham, it makes a great base for vegetable soup. I add some water, a can of corn, tomatoes, and some chopped celery, carrots, and onion. Maybe a bit of seasoning. Very simple, but it makes great soup.

Cooking was my passion until I discovered quilting. I like to find recipes in "Taste of Home" and "Southern Living" magazines and www.Allrecipes.com
