20+ Cold Soup Recipes

cold soups

  My family and I love soups. There is something so warm and comforting about a bowl of soup. When done right, it gives the feeling of a big hug: someone took time to make this and I can taste the love that went in.  There’s really only one problem… it’s 120º here in Phoenix […]

Spicy Chocolate Chili

Spicy Chocolate Chili

  Hi there, Rachel here again from {i love} my disorganized life. I am so excited that the weather is finally starting to cool off here in Southern Arizona. I love spending quiet afternoons baking, drinking hot cocoa, reading and watching movies. I also love a good pot of stew or chili, so when I […]

Soup Rewind

Chicken and Corn Soup

My family is sad since soup seasoning is quickly coming to an end.  It’s been in the 70’s and I’m not big on soup when it’s hot.  I will still make it for them, but not as much.  However, I realize that for many of you it’s still really cold and wintery…..maybe you should move […]

Tortilla Soup and Taco Twists

Tortilla Soup

Do you have a Blendtecor Vitamix?  I love mine, we use is for smoothies all the time.  When I bought it I knew I could make a hot soup with it, but I never tried until Kaylynn begged me to.  The soup is very similar to the one found in one of the cookbooks and […]

Clam Chowder

Clam Chowder

This is hands down my all time favorite soup recipe.  I have not had a clam chowder that tastes better than this…I won’t even order it at restaurants any more.  However, I do realize that I don’t live any where were there are fresh clams so there might be a better clam chowder out there, but I […]

8 Can Soup


We love this soup.  The entire family just eats it up and it’s super easy to make.  Again, this is another budget/pantry meal.  It’s also a perfect meal to have around if you are a prepper as all the ingredients for this soup and cans of things, so all the items will store nicely in […]

Slow Cooker Black-Eyed Pea Soup


As any good Southern girl knows, we must eat our black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day for good luck and prosperity in the upcoming year.  Unfortunately, I married a 4th generation Arizonan who hates black-eyed peas….that is, until I made this soup a couple years ago.  The complaining about supper on New Year’s Day has […]
