Homemade Mushroom Artichoke Soup

Even in Hawaii we have our cooler winter days and evenings. Those are the times when a nourishing pot of homemade soup or stew is often found simmering and bubbling goodness in the kitchen.

The kitchen in our home is no exception. Over the course of our 35 year marriage, my husband has made some winning dishes. This yummy recipe is just one of them.

Directions for this tasty, light, easy to make homemade mushroom artichoke soup are just a few steps away. It's a kitchen creation my husband made up one winter Sunday afternoon when we were trying to think of something easy to go with crusty bread.

Make Some Crusty Bread - to go with homemade mushroom soup!

I'm NOT a baker and thought I would NEVER own a breadmaker because my previous breadmaking experiences were ALWAYS a disaster! I received this breadmaker as a gift and it has been a joy to use from the very beginning. Truthfully, I was REALLY skeptical when I opened this box but I read the instructions and decided to give it a try.

Success from the very first loaf! Our favorites so far are the summer wheat bread and the french country loaf. Outstanding! This breadmaking machine produces so many different types of dough (including dinner roll and pizza dough).

Add the liquid ingredients, add the dry ingredients and ALWAYS add the yeast last. Choose your settings. Hit start. That's it! The breadmaker does EVERYTHING and YES, of course, it bakes the bread too!

I was also pleasantly surprised that BREAD flour is NOT expensive and is readily available. We are saving money, eating healthier because our breads are NOT full of preservatives. It's delicious too! And the delay timer feature means we can have a fresh loaf of bread ready after work or in time for breakfast. :)

Get this breadmaker!!! :)

Soup Bowls!

Soup is just more appetizing when it's served in beautiful soup bowls, don't you think?

      Cream of mushroom is one of my favorite soups. That's home made or out of the can.

      My husband loves to make Oxtail Soup (yes the recipe is on Squidoo), but I love all kinds of soup, either pre-made or homemade! I most often use really good quality canned soup or pre-made soup in a pouch or in the refrigerator section at the grocery. I am going to mention your recipe page on my "I Love Soup" page in the "homemade recipe" section.

      I love to make fasolada, Greek bean soup, in the fall and winter months. I usually make it two or three times a month. It is so good! I posted a recipe if you would like to give it a try. Can't wait to try yours! Artichokes... Yum!
