Creamy Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Soup is a very easy recipe. There’s nothing complicated about it. The tomatoes used in this recipe are canned tomatoes. These can be homemade canned (jarred) tomatoes or store bought. Canned tomatoes are an extremely versatile pantry staple. They can be used in a variety of dishes from spaghetti sauces to chili as well as soups such as the Tomato Soup with Lentils that was previously published on this site. That’s why I always have canned tomatoes in my pantry. Tomato soup, with or without lentils, is one of my favorite soups, and as a kid, I ate […]

Ham, Green Bean, and Potato Soup might not sound like the most exciting recipe in the world, but I promise that this soup is surprisingly delicious. Each time that I have made this, my friends and family members have eyed it suspiciously, but when the take their first bite, they make that sound. You know the one.

I am tremendously satisfied when a recipe gets this response from people, and Ham, Green Bean, and Potato Soup gets this response every time I make […]

Man Pleasing Soups

Five Man Pleasing Soups

One of the points of conflict in my relationship with Baker’s Man is soup.  I love soup, and he doesn’t.  The one exception to this is chili, so he likes the chili that I have been making for years, and he likes the chili con carne with beans that I made during my 30 days of cans, but those are almost the only soup-like foods that he will eat.  In fact, if I suggest soup for dinner, he rolls his eyes or makes a comment that ensures I remember that he isn’t a fan of soup.  These five recipes; however, […]

Potato Bacon Soup

I love to make potato soup.  It’s actually one of the few soups that Baker’s Man enjoys.  For this version, I used both canned milk and canned potatoes.   In this case, using canned milk serves a purpose beyond fulfilling requirements for  my 30 days of cans challenge.  Evaporated milk is concentrated milk that has had part of the water removed through evaporation.  It adds a creaminess to recipes without adding extra fat that would be added if cream, or half and half, were used.     This version of potato bacon soup is unique because the entire recipe is […]
