What Would Betty Do Logo Everybody Loves Grilled Cheese and Tomato Soup

Creamy Tomato Orzo Soup “I love tomato soup,” declared the Tiny Kitchen Assistant, apropos of nothing. “Ms. Z makes it for us all the time.” As a kid who isn’t terribly fond of soup in general, this seemed too good to be true. I figured that I’d make the soup and he wouldn’t eat any, […] Read More

What Would Betty Do Logo Brazilian Chicken Soup

Coconut Chicken Soup My friend Lori sent me the link for the Brazilian shrimp soup from Food & Wine. I’m sure that it’s lovely with shrimp, but as no one in my household really enjoys the crustaceans, I substituted chicken with great results.

What Would Betty Do Logo Split Pea Soup (or What to Do With That Ham Bone)

What Would Betty Do Logo Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup

This time of year, I could eat soup every day. No, we don’t have the snow that other parts of the country endure, but there’s something about cold, rainy weather that makes me even more inclined to hunker down and nest.

What Would Betty Do Logo “Why Not Make Chicken Soup” Soup

The other night, after finishing with our store-bought rotisserie chicken, my husband decided to take the carcass, toss it in our large stock pot, cover it with water and simmer.

What Would Betty Do Logo Roasted Tomato Soup

It seems like I always have one last batch of tomatoes around this time. They ripen somewhat strangely in the cooler days, and tend to be a bit on the soft side, making them perfect for soup. Ingredients 3-4 lbs ripe tomatoes 1 medium sweet onion, chopped 2 Tbsp bouquet garni Olive oil (I used the […] Read More
