    Homemade vegetable soup.  Ours has a base of vegetable broth, and always includes potatoes, onions, carrots, and tomato sauce (Hunt's roasted garlic).  Then we add what we have on hand -- fresh mushrooms, leeks, asparagus, and/or celery, and then a handful of either rice or pasta.  We eat it with homemade cornbread or crackers.  My next favorite soup is creamy homemade potato soup, which is delicious by itself but even better if I add fresh sauteed mushrooms and/or leeks.

    Minestrone or Carrot and Parsnip soup. They are delicious on a cold day and help to warm up your insides. Making your own carrot and parsnip soup is very easy too and has loads of flavour.

    My husband makes a delicious Chicken & Corn chunky soup where the chicken hasn't just run through on stilts like most chicken soups you buy ! I love it very much -- Yum !

    My homemade chicken noodle soup. Awesome soup to warm up the whole body. I also love potato with carrot soup, simple and nourishing.

    I like thick vegetable soup w/ pesto or a hearty minestrone w/ crusty bread. Lentil and either New England or Manhattan Clam Chowder run a close second.

    Tomato soup. Not the kind sold in the soup aisle though. I like to make mine from canned tomato sauce and diced tomatoes. Sometimes I had onion and zucchini. Add a grilled cheese sandwich and you have a great chill-blasting meal.

    Home-made chili is also a great, but I don't know if that is considered a soup? Even so, it is perfect for the coldest days, especially when accompanied by a slice of hot cornbread!

    We love homemade tomato soup. If I have time I'll make garlic croutons to float in the soup. Sometimes I make tomato-basil for a change. We also love Spicy Mulligatawny soup made with lentils and Indian spices. It's best served with Naan Bread flavored with chopped garlic. Yum!

    I adore french onion soup with lots of melted cheese!!!!! Oh so good! A close second would be home made chicken noodle soup.

    Butternut Squash Soup.  Wicked easy recipe: one carrot, one onion, one squash and one potato, dice, saute in butter, add vegetable broth then puree and add salt and pepper.  So yummy.

    I could never narrow it down beyond home made soup!  Commercially canned soups are fine in a pinch if you're only feeding one or two people, but I prefer to make a big batch of home made soup. 

    One soup that my family requests often is reminiscent of a chowder, but it's made of pureed corn with chicken broth and cream as a base, full of diced smoked sausage, wild rice, carrots, onion and of course, more corn. 

    It's a great way to use up the garden grown sweet corn I froze last summer, too.

    my favorite winter soup is..............Homemade Cabbage Soup
    Slice up a whole head of cabbage
    Slice up some carrots, celery, onions, zucchini, garlic, and some tomatoes if you want. In a crock pot, place all veggies and chicken broth on high till tender then turn down on low or when the veggies shrink down. Keep an eye out for liquid. Then Enjoy..Yum Yum:)
