Simple Fall Soups

Leaves changing colors and beginning to fall to the ground. Getting dark sooner, getting cooler earlier, maybe a little rain starting to trickle? All these things make me think of Autumn and my mind instantly turns to warm bowls of soup. I have gathered a collection of Simple Fall Soups that do not take tons of time to cook so they can be made any night of the week!

I have two “secrets” for making soups quickly but full of flavor. And neither requires an extra kitchen appliance like a Crock Pot or InstaPot. The first is BROTH! Be it vegetable, chicken, or beef – using broth instead of water will always give you a leg up in the flavor game. And secondly, dried herbs – use them often and us more than you think. Fresh herbs are great and give good flavors but dried herbs develop faster in a mostly liquid environment like soup. **Extra Tip** Place the dried herbs in a bowl and use the back of a spoon (you could also use a pestle and mortar if you have one) to gently press the herbs. Don’t crush them to a powder by any mean, just a gentle pressing to help release the flavors quicker.

I am a lot of things – wife, mother, daughter, sister, niece, friend, business owner, volunteer, and a home chef. I have lived in the Pacific Northwest for most of my adult life and plan to stay forever – while traveling a lot. I am currently running a General Contracting business with my husband out of our home. Between us we have 6 kids in our blended family, 4 of which live with us full-time. We are a highly active family during the week – sports, bands, dance classes – as well as on the weekend – camping, hiking, car shows, and concerts. We like to go go go, but when it comes to dinnertime, we mostly like to dine-in! I love to create things with my hands and have probably tried almost every craft out there at least once or twice. Cooking is a huge part of my life. No matter what anyone says – you can taste the difference in the food if it was made with love. Some of the simplest meals can be elevated so much when they are cooked with care. Pouring love into the meals I create brings a feeling of fulfillment and satisfaction, not only to me, but to the people I care about.
