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!

  2. 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.
