  • Slow Cooker Ham and Lentil Soup

    January 9, 2017

    This is a family favorite! Now is the time to get that ham bone from Christmas and make it into soup. If you forgot to save one, Honey Baked Ham sells just ham bones! Very meaty too!

  • Sweet Pea Soup

    July 1, 2016

    This sweet pea soup is amazing when we use fresh spring peas, but we’ve made it really easy to replicate this delightful soup with frozen peas! Our secret ingredient is Branch and Vine Milanese Gremolata Olive Oil.

  • French Onion Soup

    February 16, 2016

    This French Onion Soup recipe is adapted from my cousin Betzi’s recipe. We often have it on winter nights at their mountain home in Murphy, N.C. It always tastes better there!

  • Roasted Beef Bone Stock

    February 15, 2016

    Roasted Beef Bone Stock is a cross between broth and stock because we do use raw bones, but no additional meat. Roasting the bones and vegetables really brings out the flavor. This needs a long time simmering – the longer, the better.

  • Broccoli Cheddar Soup

    February 14, 2016

    February marks serious soup season in my home. I love having frozen soups for quick dinners and gifts for those in need of a “soup hug.” This is an amazingly rich and satisfying soup. You can blend it to make it all creamy delicious or leave it chunky. The grocery stores sells bread bowls, or boules, if you want to serve the soup that way. I love it just the way it is!

  • MVP Super Bowl Chili

    February 3, 2016

    Transform typical dishes, by swapping sausage into recipes, such as chili and nachos, which typically incorporate ground beef. The built-in flavor lends great taste and convenience to these dishes. Instead of chips and queso, add brat sausage to your nachos to make brat-chos. Or give this MVP Super Bowl Chili recipe a try!
