Loaded Baked Potato Soup

I’m a big potato fan, so I’m not sure why it took me so long to get around to making this Loaded Baked Potato Soup! I’ve ordered this kind of soup many times at restaurants and each time I did I thought, “I really need to make this myself!” So here it is, finally! It turned out as good as I hoped it would and if you’re a potato lover, I think you’ll enjoy it! It’s like a “comfort food soup” and it’s especially good on a cold day!

Lentil Soup with Bacon

I first made this soup on a very a cold, cold, cold, cold day a few years back and it’s definitely a hearty soup that will warm you up! On that particular day, I had some lentils, and I found a soup recipe over at MarthaStewart.com that not only had lentils, but bacon, too—and that sounded really good!

Creamy Pumpkin Soup

I first made this Creamy Pumpkin Soup on a chilly, rainy day a few autumns ago and it was just what I needed to warm up! Not only that, but it felt great to enjoy a creamy soup that was healthy, too. So often, creamy soups are made with high-fat ingredients, but this soup has lots of healthy things in it, as you can see in the recipe below. The recipe is from a cookbook that I had previously reviewed called The Everything Vegan Meal Prep Cookbook by Marly McMillen Beelman. This Creamy Pumpkin Soup seemed like the perfect recipe to try, since the days were getting colder.

Chilled Cucumber Soup

Chilled soups are perfect for summer! And if you like cucumbers, you’ll want to try this one! It also has Greek yogurt, green onions, fresh dill, and parsley in it. Lemon juice and salt give the flavor in this soup a little punch and I also added some garlic powder to the original recipe that I found in Country Living (you could also use minced fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder). The croutons on top are a nice touch, too! It’s a great summery soup to serve for a light lunch or dinner!
