4 Hearty Soups for the Season

In our neck of the woods, we've started the new year with heavy snowfall and below normal temps.  I know many of you are also experiencing harsh winter weather, so this seems like a great time to exchange soup recipes.  With the busyness of the holidays I indulged in the occasional can of Progresso, but now it's time to break out the big soup pot and go homemade!

Here are 4 of my favorite winter soup recipes.  Enjoy and please share a link to your favorite recipe in the comments below!

The best thing about Italian Wedding Soup takes the most effort - all those homemade mini meatballs. But it is SO worth it! And don't even think about substituting ordinary pasta for itty bitty stars or similar.  It won't be the same with bigger pasta, so make the extra trip to the store that sells mini. Delicious!

This is a simple and very tasty recipe for a winter chicken stew.  You can easily substitute other vegetables to suit your taste.  Make a double batch and eat it all week.  Great for lightening up your diet after all those holiday goodies too!

This is one of my all time favorites, and it gets included anytime I write about favorite recipes! It's a hearty winter soup that's easy to make.  You'll want to double up on this one too!

If you're looking for meatless or a tastier way to eat your vegetables, this cauliflower soup is the answer.  It's made a little heartier for a cold winter's night, but can easily be lightened up with a few substitutions. Very tasty either way!

Have a happy day!
