Save the Date for Soup-a-Palooza

Baby, it’s cooooold outside! I think it is high time we celebrate one of our favorite comfort foods.…… SOUP!

Soup is one of those things that everyone can equate back to their childhood. My mom always made the best chicken noodle soup, served on our silver “sick tray” in bed when we were under the weather. When you come in from a cold day of snow fort building, what do you want? Soup!

Soup, stew, chili, chowder…….have all been staples in our diets for centuries and can be the perfect appetizer or a quick and easy meal.
On February 15th Cheryl of Tidy Mom and I would like to invite YOU to share your favorite soup recipes!!

and like every great party……..there will be PRIZES from some fabulous sponsors!!

  1. Yeah! How fun! I love soup, can’t to Palooza with you all!! Thanks Ladies.

  2. How exciting! I probably don’t cook as much as most of your readers but I do love to make soup and I know just the recipe I’ll use. Can’t wait!

  3. I’m excited…this is very cool!

  4. I’m so not a food blogger, but I do love me some soup! So I will be participating. Woohoo!

  5. Sounds fun! Can’t wait to link up!

  6. Favorite soup recipe … that’s like asking to pick your favorite child! Maybe I can narrow it down to the Top 100 …

    Burned out our immersion blender a while ago, and got a very nice Cuisinart replacement from the in-laws for Christmas. In danger of burning it up as much as we’re using it. Trying to figure out if there’s anything that can’t be turned into soup with enough blending horsepower.


  7. I’m not really a food blogger, but I’m about to start a food series, so I’m going to join. :)

  8. Excellent! Can’t wait!

  18. I made a creamy cauliflower soup tonight from American’s Test Kitchen. I “healthified” it a bit, and my boys (hubby included) said “it’s a keeper.” It was amazing! So healthy, so delicious… and sort of easy. I’ll be posting it on Feb 15th to my blog!
