Spring Onion Noodle Soup with Lemon Sour Cream and Herbed Cheese Toast

School is finally out for the semester and I’m completely over the moon!  The first dish we made after I wrapped up my last assignment was this Spring Onion Noodle Soup.  We first made it about two years ago and it’s been a spring time favorite ever since.  I still find it quite funny that I loathed onions, absolutely hated them with a passion, for most of my life.  These days, I can’t imagine making any of my recipes without them and they’re easily one of my favorite vegetables!

This soup combines the flavors of sweet onions, green onions, and leeks with lemon and basil.  The result is a perfect balance of delicious spring time.  We love, love, love this soup, especially topped with the Lemon Sour Cream and soaking up the broth with Justin’s Herbed Cheese Toasts is just heaven.  We hope you love it as much as we do!

Sun-Dried Tomato Soup with a Prosciutto & Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich

A few months ago I purchased a cookbook titled “Williams-Sonoma Soup of the Day, 365 Recipes for Every Day of the Year” by Kate McMillan.  We’ve only made a handful of recipes from this book so far, but every single one of them has been absolutely delicious and really, really easy to make.  {I posted this Chorizo and Chicken Stew with Avocado Crema last October.}

We were browsing through the book for a delicious soup to make when my eyes got really wide after coming to a page with this sun-dried tomato recipe.  It had some beautiful lumps of crab on top of it.  I would have never thought to add that to a soup like this, but the crab meat was amazing on top of the soup!  The mild flavor of the crab went so well with the strong flavors of the soup.  And as for the grilled cheese sandwich…it is definitely the best one I’ve ever had.  Justin crusted both slices of bread with Parmesan cheese for a little added crispiness and the avocado and prosciutto were delicious with the cheese.

Chorizo and Chicken Stew with Avocado Crema

I have a lot of cookbooks {don’t we all?}.  Not so many that they’re not all stored in one cupboard, but just enough that I could go years without having to look up a recipe online.  And despite having plenty of these treasured tomes…sometimes…I just need another.  Yes, need.

So I was on Amazon a few weeks ago {buying the best – and cheapest – toy ever for my 4 month old} when the cookbook hankering kicked in.  Williams-Sonoma has never let me down so I decided to see what was out there.  My goodness golly do they have dozens of delicious cookbooks that I would just love to get my grubby little hands on!  I think I added about 7 of them to my Wishlist and decided to go for Soup of the Day, 365 Recipes for Every Day of the Year.

Fall has swooped in fast and I am more than ready to get my soup on.  Justin and I couldn’t decide which one to try first, so we decided to make whatever soup was marked for the day we were making it {gee – what an idea!}.  September 23rd had a delicious picture of “Chorizo and Chicken Stew with Avocado Crema” and I was delighted!  Even more so when the soup tasted just as amazing as it looked!  Go on…buy the book.  Or make this soup.  Then buy the book.  Happy Fall Y’all!

***Congratulations to Betsy!  She’s won herself a fantastic Labrador tote!

Chicken Enchilada Slow Cooker Soup

Early this past summer, two of my amazing girlfriends, Katie and Lindsay, came to stay with us for a weekend.  We had a fantastic time eating, drinking, and shopping at the “World’s Largest Garage Sale” {it really is called that}.  One night we decided to stay in for dinner because Katie suggested a delicious slow cooker recipe that we could start in the early afternoon and come home to 6 hours later.  I’ve never been huge on soups {aside from my four favorites that I’ve posted on this site} so I was a tiny bit skeptical.  Well never underestimate a woman who works full time at a college, takes care of a family, and owns a CrossFit gym.  We loved this soup and have made it several times since.  I usually take a recipe and adapt it to be more of my own, but this one I never alter.  It’s perfectly delicious as is.  {Incredibly simple too!}

Creamy Cauliflower and Potato Soup

Ever since my pea soup disaster {very simple story…I spent a lot of time making Gwyneth Paltrow’s split pea soup that came out nasty}, I’ve become extremely wary when it comes to making new soups.  And I almost didn’t make this cauliflower and potato soup because I’m not super into leeks…until I realized, how could I possibly know if I like leeks when I’ve never made a conscious effort to try them?  I mean really, I don’t think I know anyone who has ever said, “Oh my gosh I made these amazing leeks last night” but I decided to give it a go anyways.  I’m really glad I did!  The jury is still out on leeks {I think it’s just a filler veggie to make up more substance in the soup} but the whole shebang tasted delicious!  It was incredibly simple and easy and I was delightfully pleased.  It seems to me a perfect soup to make again when the weather decides to fully commit to fall {78 degrees in October is lame}.
