Delicious Soups For All Seasons

Updated on November 15, 2014

Not much sounds better than being huddled inside on a snow covered wintery night with, a hearty crusty loaf of bread and a healthy hot bowl of soup.

Unless you are sitting by a pool on a warm summer's evening enjoying a cool, light bowl of chilled soup possibly served in a melon half.

Yes, if you are a soup lover you enjoy it year round and you don't just stick to the standards like chicken, potato, French onion or tomato soups.

You venture out with soups like Pumpkin and White Bean, Eggplant Parmesan, Crab and Havarti Bisque with Dill, Chilled Beet and Raspberry, Wild Maine Blueberry,Mulligatawny,Sweet Potato Corn Chowder and all of these and about 100 more can be found in one of my favorite soup cookbooks the New England Soup Factory Cookbook: More than 100 Recipes from the Nation's Best Purveyor of Fine Soup.

It really doesn't matter if you are a novice cook or if you have been cooking for decades you will enjoy reading about the different recipes and following the very simple and easy to follow along instructions.

Since these recipes are from Boston's famed New England Soup Factory restaurant you might think that they would require exotic ingredients or take hours in the kitchen and while there is a small handful that do, the vast majority can be whipped up quickly with ingredients that can be found at your local grocery store.

If you are looking to learn a new over the top technique or want to have recipes that use ingredients that you have to send away for then this book is not for you but don't let the easiness of the techniques or the simple ingredients send you away, these are hands down some of the best soups, chowders and stew that you will ever taste.

You'll be quite surprised that they were made by you!

Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Recipe

Though not included in the above cookbook, this is one of my favorite recipes to bring in to work when we have a potluck lunch and need to feed a large group inexpensively and easily.

It's a very simple soup to make and while it feeds a large gathering s also budget friendly. I usually like to bring in a few french bread loaves to go along with it and it's always a big hit.

I hope that you will try it!

This soup mug holds 22 ounces of home made soup or a full can of soup like Campbell's chunky type or Progresso.
The lid snaps on securely so it won't leak and when you microwave there is a venting system that allows steam to escape but won't let the contents splatter all over the microwave.
Perfect for microwaving at work.
