Comforting Soups

Turning Les’s Chili into “Kitchen-less” Chili

My chili recipe has grown and changed considerably over the years, but the baseline recipe still has some “Mel’s Diner” in it. This time around, I have a new challenge—making my chili without a kitchen.

Slow Cooker Turkey Chili Soup

I’m cooking without a kitchen, y’all! This easy slow cooker recipe is not quite chili and not quite soup, but it’s bringing all kinds of comforting flavor for these early fall days.

Crab & Artichoke Bisque

This improvised recipe created from a mystery basket turned out so delicious, I scribbled down the ingredients and amounts so that I can make it again someday—and now, you can too!

French Onion Soup

Only the French could turn a mountain of ordinary onions into something so extraordinary. This melt-in-your-mouth soup is well worth the extra time you will take to caramelize the onions.

Brunswick Stew

My version of this Southern classic uses easy shortcuts, including simple pantry and freezer ingredients, and a deli rotisserie chicken. It’s down-home comfort, y’all!
