Winter Soup Recipes// Hearty Homemade Soups//

So the other day it was freezing cold outside. I couldn't seem to get warm no matter how many layers of clothing I had on. The winter weather can definitely be bone chilling this time of year, especially in the heart of February.

I knew I had to eat or drink something steamy warm to help thaw me out.

A nice bowl of chicken noodle soup would do the trick I thought. But then I remembered this amazing Kale and Potato Soup recipe I made on repeat last year. It's so good and hearty and leaves me full for hours!

So I made a quick visit to my local grocery store and bought all the ingredients I needed to make this yummy soup.

The best part about this recipe is that it only takes a few simple steps and ingredients to prepare.

I ended up making this soup two times that week! I couldn't get enough!

Eating a hot bowl of hearty soup is a great way to stay cozy and warm throughout the cold winter season.

It would also make a relaxing and satisfying Valentine's Day meal if you're looking to stay home to avoid the crowded restaurants.

Soup is good for the soul

The other day I asked my followers on Instagram to list their favorite go-to winter soups, and I'm excited to share their responses.

What are the best Dutch ovens for making soups?

My hubby and I just purchased our new cast iron nonstick Dutch oven from Target and have already put it to use a few times. I love that it withstands hot temperatures and makes cleaning up super easy!

I absolutely love my pampered chef food chopper. I had mine for years and the stainless steel blades still work as new. I love that it is easy to grip and chops vegetables with little effort. Plus, it is dishwasher safe!
