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

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
