One of the best ways to stay warm this winter is by serving some delicious soup. January is Soup Month so break out the bowls and spoons. Skip that junk in the can and try making any of these homemade soup recipes!

I’ll be honest, I’ve never been a big fan of soups. I like them as much as I like winter – and that’s just about not at all. hehe It wasn’t until the last few years that I’ve found a couple soups I enjoy. One is my mom’s beef and barley. Mmm! So good.

The first time I ever had it, it was salty, beefy, had just enough tomato so you knew it was there, but it wasn’t overpowering, and it was served with warm crusty bread. I’ve started to make that one myself every fall, but I add every vegetable in the house I can find – maximize the amount of soup and it’s healthy side.

The other soup I’ve found to enjoy is kind of a joint piece between her and I – she started making corn chowder and asked me to finish making it for her. Of course, when I’m in the kitchen, I can’t help but add spices and experiment – so if you’re looking for something bland and boring,

I’m not your chef. hehe But what I ended up with, as far as this soup goes, was O-M-G delicious. I don’t care for thin soups, so I thickened this bacony-corny concoction with plain potato flakes and it worked perfectly! Man, just writing this has me craving a bowl of that chowder!

This January I’m trying to expand my horizon with soup – I’m taking something I like – ethnic cuisine – and trying it out in soup form. I’ve put together a list of recipes I’m considering trying – especially the Latin Chicken one! Check out the list for some mouth-watering homemade soup recipes that will take you on a tour around the world!
