I didn't see a single group on this site that is dedicated to good soups and stews. For those of us who live in climates that inspire good, hot, hearty soups, this is a good place to share your favorites. If you're someone who loves to create spur-of-the-moment soups from the week's leftovers, this site is for you, too!

Chilly fall days are just made for creamy tomato soup. This week I made Tomato Gorgonzola soup and served with crostini for dipping. Just perfect to cheer up a drizzly day.

Being that I'm a Northern Girl, "Soup's On" at my house and this is what I cooked up last week...

Chicken Cider Stew this happens to be one of my favorite soups to make during the fall season. It is delicious! Turkey Soup Continental I just adopted this one off Just a Pinch as it had no owner. I changed it up and made it my own...very delicious.

Two-pot method for perfect cheese soups

By Heidi Hoerman

It may dirty two pots but this two-step method for making cheese soups prevents any lumps and results in a cheese soup with a great consistency. In one pot, prepare the broth and any solid ingredients for the soup. In the other pot, make a cheese sauce. Stir the two together and voila!

For example, the other night I cooked finely chopped broccoli in chicken stock. In the other pot, I made simple bechamel (a roux of flour and butter with milk stirred in), seasoned it with achiote paste, and melted in some finely diced cheddar. I stirred the cheese sauce into the broccoli and stock and had a very nice broccoli-cheddar soup. No cheese sticking to the bottom of the pot or wrapping itself around the solids in the soup. I've used this two pot method several times now and LOVE the results!

Looking for old polish soup recipe

By Suzanne Marzano
Mar 24, 2013
I am looking for an old recipe for a soup called Kavas(?) not sure of spelling. My mom and busia used to make it. When my mom died I found her recipe but it was in short hand. I remember it was made with milk, vinegar, neck bones, carrots and that's all I remember. Over the years I've tried to come up with my own recipe and the white borscht is very close but not quite. Any help or ideas would be helpful.
