Ohh...homeade wonton soup and homemade chicken noodle soup (done the Italiano way with parm. and ditalini!!! Yum!) can't be beat on a cold day. Aaaaand? Don't forget potatoe soup and yes, as Mixing Bowl Mama mentioned: French Onion! Delish!


Just Yesterday I made a tomato soup, since I get a cold.
I don't know if the recipe is worth sharing because it was very simple, but I enjoyed.
I used 2 garlics, some basil, rosemary, oregano, black pepper and spinach, and put that in a pot with some olive oil and let cook for 15 minutes, than I add 3 tomatoes chopped and a little bit of water and cook all for some 20 minutes, then I put it on the blender with more water and then back in the pot and cook for other 10 minutes, and ta da, it was very nice.
Here are some pics if I didn't explain myself well.


I just discovered your blog from the comment you left at orangette. I will sure be back. I love your foodie photos and recipes.

hey! I haven't had a chance to check in to your blog since school started! I was curious what letter you were on! I'm glad you're still only at 'S'! I haven't missed too much!
The latest soup we have made is SO SIMPLE! (haha the letter S!)
I saw Giada DeLaurentis make it on her show... and it's so quick!

Italian Tomato Bean Soup

chop and fry one onion till golden
add one jar favourite spaghetti sauce
1 can white kidney beans (drained/rinsed)
1 litre organic chicken stock (we use President's choice organic stock)
bring to a low boil
add 1/2 cup tubetti noodles
cook until noodles are soft

Super quick and easy!


I am always looking for new soup recipes. We really love my Spicy Sausage and Lentil Soup and Roasted Tomato Soup. I have had a cold and unfortunately for me, I am our household's chef. No homemade soup for me:(


We are making a simple chicken noodle soup in the crock pot today and I let my toddler add the spices. She had about five to shake into a small bowl that I then dumped into the pot. She loved it. What a great idea! Thanks for the tip.
