Romesco Potato Soup

A classic potato soup recipe is extra delicious topped with romesco sauce! It's a great weeknight dinner idea, and reheats well for lunch the next day. Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

A different take on romesco potatoes, my Romesco Potato Soup is creamy, comforting, and perfect for cool winter evenings! I keep my potatoes and onions in a teacup shaped wire basket on the counter. The garlic sits in the saucer section. It’s rather cute, until we have moments when I don’t realize I have three white potatoes sitting under a small mountain of onions and I buy three more potatoes, and then…

Daufuskie Soup

Daufuskie Soup - A creamy seafood soup recipe inspired by coastal South Carolina. Recipe on GoodieGodmother.com

This Daufuskie Soup recipe is a decadent, creamy seafood soup inspired by the cuisine of coastal South Carolina. The Godfather and I love taking our little family circus on road trips. I don’t know if it’s because we know we have “work mandated” road trips when we relocate for his job every few years, or if it’s just a love of the adventure and the time spent together, but it’s…

Cheesy Broccoli Cheese Soup

Actually cheesy broccoli cheese soup recipe!

Do you know why people love broccoli cheese soup? Because it’s cheesy and thick and comforting. Do you know what most of the recipes I’ve tried online aren’t? Cheesy and thick, so they can’t be comforting. I have tried *many* recipes, copycat recipes, big name blogger recipes, major food site recipes, little food blogger recipes, and couldn’t find “the one”. I wanted that recipe that was going to give me the…

My Favorite Butternut Squash Soup {dairy-free, vegan, Whole30}

Looking at the title for this post with all the dietary qualifiers, I feel like I don’t even sound like myself. Where is the baker Godmother, the cheese-loving Godmother, the Godmother that rivals Paula Deen and Ina Garten in her love of good-quality butter? She’s here. She just started making this soup several years ago by piecing together a few things in the fridge and never really stopped making it…

Stay warm when it’s cold with nourishing food like this veggie packed winter kale beef soup recipe! * Recipe updated with new photos as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project. As I watched my daughter happily shove fistfuls of kale into her mouth, I couldn’t help but feel a mix of horror and delight. Horror at the manner in which she was eating (we are still learning how to use utensils),…

Slow Cooker Chili

I have a confession to make darlings. I nearly got into an altercation, at the farmer’s market, over the crockpot. Not really, but it sounds more dramatic if I tell it that way. What actually happened was that the Godfather and I ventured out to the farmer’s market last Saturday to pick up some local produce. There was a poultry vendor at the market, and so we stopped by to…

Roasted Butternut Squash Pumpkin Saffron Soup

Happy first day of Fall darlings! After a warm weekend the Virginia weather is setting the stage for the change in season with just the slightest chill in the air, and I am “celebrating” with my first head cold in years. We are not amused in the slightest. Thankfully, the bug seems to be disappearing as quickly as it appeared, but I am limiting my kitchen time until I am better.…

Chicken Pesto Slow Cooker Soup

Delicious, healthy, comforting, and filling! This slow cooker chicken pesto soup is a hearty meal perfect for chilly weather!

This post updated October 2015 as part of the #ThrowbackThursday photography project. There are no old photos because apparently I was so embarrassed that I removed them previously and left the post without pictures.  Baby Girl entered our lives just under twelve weeks ago. Some things have changed dramatically, and other things have stayed the same, but the one thing that absolutely floors me is how quickly the time is passing. I saw…

Make Your Own Soup Stock

I will admit to rolling my eyes a little years ago at Ina Garten when she pulled out homemade stock for the recipes on her show. “Store bought is fine” was definitely my mantra and I couldn’t understand why someone would take the time to make something purchased so easily. That is, until I realized how much easier it was to make your own! It’s also less expensive, more flavorful,…
