8 Hearty Winter Soup Recipes: Best of the Blogs

winter soups: best of the blogs

Hearty winter soup might be what’s getting us through right now. (Fortunately, we found a few recipes that use up all that leftover Thanksgiving turkey — if there is any left, that is.) And why not? We’re tired of cooking, cooking, cooking — and soon, we’ll be doing it again for all those Christmas parties that are just around the corner.


In the meantime, these recipes, from some of our favorite blogs, reprise recipes that are hearty and nutritious, full of healthy vegetables, like super-nutritious kale, tender beans, and even favorite pasta shapes in the case of vegetable-laden Italian minestrone. It just seems like these bloggers are reading our minds: Give us something that’s not too hard to make and let us serve it with a loaf of bread and call it dinner.


And maybe what we like best about hearty winter soup is that you can freeze it for another day. And that day might be coming sooner than you think, like in about a month, when you’ve finished making all the dips and appetizers and New Year’s spreads and are seriously ready to settle down for a long winter’s meal.

    Because an agency is performance driven and striving to keep the business as a client, they will generally produce better work in a quicker time frame. If you have a great product that somehow never seems to get the attention that it deserves, it may be that by creating a landing page and a campaign to drive traffic to that page is all you require, rather than a full website build and optimisation of every page on the website. Every website on the internet is aiming for long-term promotion and visibility on search results, and hiring a competent SEO consultant which uses white-hat techniques can certainly help in achieving that goal.

    Do you know how I avoid duplicate iCal alerts? (Apple support does not, so far…) I think b/c of iCloud calendar sharing in between my husband and i, I’m getting two alerts for every event on the iMac and on the iPhone. anything is up to date and that i have got a new MacBook Pro and the new iPhone 4s.
