Tomato White Bean Soup with Kale Pesto {Recipe}

Warm up this fall and winter with a bowl of tomato white bean soup topped off with a dollop of kale pesto. Serve with a hunk of crusty bread for dipping. Even though I grew up and still live in the northeast, I’m not the biggest fan of cold weather. The only thing I like about the cold? It coincides with soup season!

Creamy Parsnip Pear Soup with Cranberry Coulis {Recipe}

Parsnip pear soup is sweet and savory, creamy without the cream, and a nutritious and delicious addition to a fall or winter meal. Garnish with tart cranberry coulis for a pop of color and festivity. I love soup. I eat soup all year round, even on 90 degree days during the summer. And I’m not just talking about cold soups like gazpacho, though I’m a fan of that too. What I really love is a hot bowl of soup that warms me up from the inside out. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a hearty ve… read more »
