Indian Taco Soup?

You are probably thinking I have totally lost it. But…hear me out. Saturday we were at Costco and of course if you have been reading my blog for any length of time or have read some of the stories in Princess on the Porch, you know that Mr. Adventure loves to go to Costco and … Continue reading

Chicken Wild Rice Soup

Last week a dear sweet new friend of mine, Marilyn, from church knew that I was struggling with bronchitis and brought this great soup over for our dinner. To say it was great is really an understatement. It was so good, I kept standing at the counter eating it out of the container it was … Continue reading

Mexican Wedding Soup

Randy and I love Italian Wedding soup, so when I saw this in the new Taste of Home Magazine, I got excited to see that I could have a recipe that would make it with a whole new taste. Am looking forward to having this soup over the weekend. Thanks Taste of Home! 1 tables … Continue reading

White Bean With Italian Sausage Soup

Found this in an old Southern Living Magazine. Will be perfect for sitting outside on the porch (oops, excuse me, I forget out here they are called Arizona Rooms), watching the sun go down and having a bowl of soup with garlic french bread. The recipe originally called for Chorizo, but I don’t like it … Continue reading

How glad I did. She found the recipe from Trisha Yearwood’s website. She had made it and said it was … Continue reading

King Ranch Chicken Soup

Windows are open, more apple cakes are in the oven and looking through the newly delivered Southern Living magazine, this soup caught my eye. Our adult kids love King Ranch Casserole, but never thought about transforming it into a soup. Thank you Southern Living, that’s why we love you! 2 tables butter 1 cup chopped … Continue reading

Green Chile Beef Vegetable Soup

I cooked lunch for a meeting today. Thinking that maybe, just maybe it might be cooler weather, I planned on making a pot of soup. But as the day dawned, it became apparent that it was going to be in the 90’s. Was too late to change the menu, so soup it was. We were … Continue reading

This is taken from Southern Living Comfort Food magazine. 1 large sweet onion, diced 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 … Continue reading
