25 BEST Soup Recipes

 When the cold weather hits, I crave a good bowl of soup. Read on to find easy and delicious soup recipes, I'll be making all winter long!

The cold weather has finally made it's way to Canada. When fall hits and the temperatures start to drop, I crave the warmth only soup can provide. It soothes my soul, warms me up from the inside out and is a delicious way to get some healthy veggies into my kids! 

There's nothing better than simmering a soup on the stove, to cure what ails you. There's just something therapeutic about making stock, adding veggies and herbs and letting it simmer until it becomes liquid perfection. Not to mention, soups go a long way and are very budget friendly. 

Before I share some of my favourite soups, I'd like to share a few tips to use when making soup at home. 

  • Don't forget to taste as you go and season as needed. Veggies and pasta need salt, but not all stocks are seasoned the same. So make sure you taste as you go and add salt and pepper if needed. If your soup ends up too salty, peel a potato and throw it into your soup to simmer, until tender. The potato will soak up some of the salt!
  • Soup is always better the second day (the flavours get to meld together), so don't be scared of making a BIG batch of soup! Leftovers are delicious and can come in handy, on nights you're too tired to cook.
  • Get creative with what you like! I'm not a big basil fan, so when I make soup, I use the amount I know I'll be ok with. If you want to add extra spices and herbs, do it! Love a good drizzle of olive oil or truffle oil on your soup before eating it? I say heck YES, give it a go! Cooking should be a way to express yourself, so get creative!
Now onto 25 of the most delicious soup, stew and chowder recipes that will have you craving a warm bowl of deliciousness, all season long!

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

50+ Creative Cottage Meal Ideas

When the warm weather hits many of us head to the cottage, to enjoy the sunshine and time near the water. Instead of always packing up burgers and hot dogs, I've rounded up over 50 creative meal ideas for delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Ever since I was little my family always enjoyed a few weeks camping at a near by provincial park, during the summer months. When us kids, became older and moved away, Mom and Dad bought a trailer which remained parked at a location, so we would often go and visit for a few weeks then too. My mom has always been an amazing cook and with her outside kitchen often made our family favourites, even at camp. Now that my SO and his family have a cottage, we are frequently there for most of the summer. Hamburgers and Hot Dogs seem to be our go to, so I wanted to collect new creative meals perfect to make while camping, or at the cottage.  Breakfast Recipes Healthy Banana Milkshake Thick, creamy banana milkshake made without ice cream, dairy, and

Sam & Cat Sloppy Waffles

 A nod to the popular preteen TV show Sam & Cat, these s loppy waffles pair classic sloppy joes with crisp waffles. Years ago, my daughter fell in love with a kids show called Sam and Cat. This show melds two shows the kids use to watch together. It stars Sam Puckett (Jennette McCurdy) from iCarly and Cat Valentine (Ariana Grande) from Victorious. It's a witty and fun show and the kids loved the hijinks these two girls get into every week. In one particular episode, they get stuck inside a secret room, they find in their apartment (which use to be Cat's Nonna's before she moved to Elderly Acres). While they are stuck in the secret room, Cat mentions her idea of Sloppy Waffles, which pairs waffles and sloppy joes. Sam falls in love with the idea and once they are rescued by their friend Goomer, the show ends with the girls enjoying Sloppy Waffles. We recently watched the episode on Netflix, and the kids commented that we should try to make Sloppy Waffles. I thought it wa
