Autumn is the season for soup – and chili. When the weather turns cooler, they’re our go-tos.

So this week we’re highlighting some of our favorite season-appropriate recipes from blog posts past. There are enough of them to tide you over for a few weeks – while we sneak off for vacation.

For now, soup’s on!


Cream of Mushroom Soup

Soup Recipes for Fall

Slow Cooker Homestyle Chili

Chili Recipes for Fall
Celery, Corn, and Bacon Chowder

Programming Note: We’re Taking a Break

We’re taking some down time for the next few weeks. So we won’t be posting (or visiting other blogs) for a while.

We’ll be back on October 11th with a new recipe. See you then!

Hi Amy, soup and chili season is the best, isn't it? At least it's my favorite cooking season. :-) Thanks for the comment.

Mae Travels said...

Great ideas for fall which has arrived all too soon! I love savory-flavored pumpkin dishes. My idea of pumpkin spice is sage & onions.

Enjoy your break.

NO...No...we still have one more week of summer!!! :) How I hate to see summer leave; however, I do love the fall and I do love soup season. This is a great list of fall soups. The Cream of Mushroom Soup has my name on it. Thanks John!

Have a wonderful vacation! Your celery, corn, and bacon chowder looks scrumptious right now.

Perfect timing for the chillier nights, I've been craving soup ever since they turned the fall switch on! I love the heartier soups and chilis too, real comfort food. Cream of mushroom soup sounds so wonderful right now, and as luck would have it, I have an assortment of mushrooms in my fridge.
