    Wow! Those are some great giveaways, Jenny!

    My favorite soup is without a doubt Chicken Tortilla! However, I’m not a fan of the broth-y chicken tortilla soup, I love the thick kind with lots of delicious ingredients (corn, black beans, peppers, etc.). Yummy!

  2. Brooks

    OH! I love Chicken Corn Chowder!
    Sara is right! Those are some great giveaways!
    Can’t wait to see what soups you chose to post!

  3. Kayla Hewitt

    I’ve been following your blog for a while now but haven’t commented until now. How could I resist the prizes? I love potato soup (creamy with cheese). It’s probably the least healthy soup ever, but it is so good and perfect on a cold day! I love your recipes. I’ve bookmarked several to try. Keep them coming!

  4. Prudy

    What a fun give away! I love soup of all kinds, but hmm, but my latest favorite is roasted green chile corn chowder.

  8. Suzy Q

    My favorite soup right now is a beef and lentil soup. Add in a lot of veggies, and sometimes pasta wheels for my kids…yummy!

    I love soups, so I look forward to some good ideas from your posts!

  9. mom2four

    I just started following your blog and I just love your recipes! Soup sounds really good right about now! My favorite would definitely have to be potato with cream cheese with corn chowder being a close second.

  10. Anonymous

    My favorite soup, especially this time of year, is white chili. The kids call it ghost chili. I have been lurking on your site for quite some time now and I just wanted to say that it is great! I love it. By the way, my son was in diapers until he was four and my oh my, I know where you are coming from. Don’t feel pressured, I bet he’ll be easier to train at an older age anyway. Good luck to ya!

  18. Patti

    I was on a cruise and was served a strawberry soup that tasted so devine I asked for seconds! It was like drinking a melted strawberry shake.
    However, when cooler weather comes around, I love homemade chicken soup with dumplings.

  19. *~Dani~*

    My favorite soup is definitely potato. I love when my mom makes it. I will have to hit her up some and have her show me how to do it myself since I have bravely entered into the “cooking world.” Love your blog! I have made your chocolate chip oreo cookies and they were a hit. Will be making more of your recipes in the future.

    My husband is absolutely addicted to the Zuppa Toscana soup at olive garden. So, I found a homemade recipe (which he loves even better) and it is sooooo good. He actually got mad when I offered some of HIS leftovers to my parents.

    Love, Love, Love your blog by the way πŸ™‚

  35. Becky Johnson

    I am just a soup person. I try to make a different soup once a week..like a soup day. I tried your tomato soup last time…but I did it without the bacon because I didn’t have any. It was just what I was craving and my husband has put it in his top 2 favorite soups!! Thanks!!!

  41. Crystal

    Great prizes!! My favorite soup is clam chowder. I don’t have it very often though b/c it’s so fattening. But I sure do love it, especially in a bread bowl.

  42. Vanessa Shannon

    Thank you for making recipes that allow me to look like a wonderful cook when I make them!

  57. Sisters Savings

    These are some really great prizes!

    My favorite soup hands down is french onion! I love the versatility of it and the crouton, yum! Then add some fun cheese….it is soooo good!

    Missy

  61. Mary Ann

    This is so hard! I love soup. Can I have 3 favorites? Well, my fave is Prudy’s Roasted Red Pepper Soup.

  62. Kelly

    That’s tough — I don’t think I can pick just one!
    But I’ll pick two πŸ™‚

    Loaded baked potato, or, italian wedding soup. I love them both!

  63. Katie

    Soups are absolutely the best, especially at this time of year. I like all the healthy soups, Minestrone, White Chili, but I would have to say if I am going to indulge, Tomato Basil soup, complete with cream!

  64. Denissa

    What fun giveaways! My favorite is cheeseburger soup. It is the yummiest potato/cheese you could imagine with ground beef and some veggies in it.
    Love your blog, thanks for sharing all your yummy recipes πŸ™‚

  65. Melissa

    Broccoli Cheddar is my Favorite but really any cream soup will do. Your the best can’t wait to see what recipes you have.

  66. Carla

    It honestly depends on what kind of mood I am.

    If I want soup as a meal it’s usually Chicken Tortilla, with something, I love Cream of Broccoli or Butternut Squash, I really don’t discriminate against any soups.

  67. Lauren W

    when it starts to get cold, I can’t wait to make my chicken, andouille and tasso gumbo. yyyyyuuuummmm, it warms you right up!!!

  68. shumaker clan

    Loaded Baked Potatoe soup. Yummy. Any how your blog is so inspiring. I love to try some of the things you post.

  69. Melanie

    Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is my favorite but I am a soup-lover and could eat about any soup and be a happy camper. Thanks for the giveaway!

  70. Grandma B

    That’s a hard one…I love cream of broccoli, or my daughters yummy chicken corn chowder. I also enjoy my homemade chicken noodle soup made from my own chicken stock. Must make your own stock, it is a family recipe handed down and goes out to any family who falls ill. Cure it every time.

    I would love the piecrust cutters to use on my pies and also on puffed pastry that I use for baked brie. It has pecans, brown sugar and crasins in the middle and is delicous eaten with red pears or crackers. Enjoy your day.

  71. Katrina

    Favorite soup–hmmm, it’s a toss up between a chili type soup and split pea soup. I just made some split pea soup a few days ago, love it with chicken or ham broth, potato, carrots, some cut up ham, and not too brothy–thick like. My kids even like it!

  72. carizolli

    My favorite soup is tortilla soup.

    I’ve been reading your blog for a couple months now, but this is my first comment. I LOVE your blog! Thanks for all you do!

  73. Wii are the Nelsons

    My favorite soup is Clam Chowder…I’ve never made it myself because I would have no idea how to buy clams.

  74. Mandy

    Just this morning I made my Taco Soup recipe and let it simmer in the crock pot all day. The house smelled so good and finally Jim and I had a bowl tonight with warmed tortillas on the side. I’m posting the recipe on my blog this week. It may be a little spicy for your kiddos, but you can certianly turn the heat down for them. I can’t wait to see what soups you make this season!

  75. Jocelyn

    The best soup in the world would have to be minestrone. Olive Garden’s is of course the best…but that doesn’t stop me from making pots of the stuff!

  76. Kim

    My favorite soup is White Chili with chicken. I have this one. I am not a fan of regular chili, but i will eat this one any day. I also love potato soup.

  77. Heather

    Gosh I love most soups so this is hard. Anything hearty. I love tomato and grilled cheese, a good potato soup, minestrone, black bean, taco soup! Hmmmmmm.

  78. Laurie

    I would have to say your White and Black Bean Ranchero Chicken Chili with Cilantro Crema. I know you call it chili, but it has become the favorite family soup for us. I also love chicken tortilla! Thanks for all the wonderful resources.

  79. The Snell Family

    I love a “loaded baked potato soup” thats super thick with big chunks of potatoes!! Lots of bacon, green onion, cheese, sour cream…you know the basics :):)

  80. RJHnrksn

    Hmmmm, what to choose, hope you get through all these!! That is some serious commenting. Anywho, I have a recipe for Chicken Noodle that I also use for my Chicken and Dumplings, and Chicken pot pie, so I think that would be my fave, mostly because it is so yummy, but also because it is extremely versatile. Throw in some thick home made noodles and there ya go!!

  81. Dan ~ Holly

    What wonderful giveaways!! My all time favorite soup is homemade chicken noodle soup. I love your blog. I always look forward to trying out your recipes because I know they will be great! πŸ™‚

  82. Amber Ostler

    There is nothing better than a simple, broccoli cheddar soup! If it has broccoli it has to be healthy right?

  83. Megan Miley and Chris

    I rarely ever eat soup, but if someone is making broccoli cheese soup… I’m there! I’m all about simple food ingredients. I actually had some tonight and it did my little heart some good. I love your blog I hope I win!

  84. Domestic Goddess..Diva sometimes

    Hmm well I love chicken soup and I also love egg drop soup. I guess chicken and eggs are what I like! πŸ˜‰

  85. Lindsey

    i am with you on soup season. my most favorite thing about fall. i love chili in the cold. what i love most about having chili is cornread. what i love most about having chili and cornbread is the honey butter!

  86. Steph and Brady

    I love broccoli cheese soup SO much. I also love corn chowder. I can’t wait for you to post some soup recipes. I have loved all of them I have tried so far. My husband appreciates your recipes too because I actually make things other than mac and cheese. Thanks!

  87. Laura

    My favorite soup is Sausage and Lentil soup. My Dad used to make it when I was a kid. The smell alone brings back wonderful childhood memories of cooking with him in the kitchen!

  88. Tyson and Courtney

    My favorite soup is Sausage Lentil Soup…like the one served at Carrabba’s. I love all the delicious Italian spices. So yummy!

  89. Derick and Becky

    My all time favorite is the Tomato Basil with Orzo from Zupas. I really really wish I had a recipe for it! Does anyone have one that is comparable???

  90. Abes and Stace

    My favorite fall soup is one my mother in law threw together when we lived with her. It was basically just a delicious hearty vegetable soup and she threw in some little alphabet pasta and some barley. No meat and very healthy and filling. Yum!

  91. Angie

    My all time favorite soups are spinach lentil and red lentil, with a side a pita. I love simple soups that are bursting with flavor.

  92. AZMarianos

    Yummm, soup! I can’t really choose just one favorite, I have a couple. First choice is my mom’s clam chowder (she makes it the best!) but if I can’t have that then potato broccoli and cheese is just as good. I can’t wait for some colder soup weather!

  93. Rachelle

    I was just thinking about soups last night! I lvoe me some homemade clam chowder, baked potato soup, corn chowder….

    and what a great giveaway!!

  94. Millie

    I think I might have to do with a chicken tortilla soup, or some other delicious soup with lots of meat and a really good broth…for lack of a great explanation!

  95. Taren * Joseph * Brayden

    OMG just one soup!?! I cannot choose a favorite. But my utmost top 3 are broccoli cheese, chicken tortilla, and taco soup! MMMMmmm I just love this time a year and the foods that make it all warm and fuzzy. πŸ™‚

  96. MommyVega

    There is a lot of comments for you to go through here. =)

    My favorite soup is Tomato Basil. It goes so good with crackers or even a sandwich. I normally love it with a side of strawberries and honeydew melon. =) STrange I know but it's very tastey. Right balance of Warm & Flavourful and Sweet & Freshing.

    Can't wait to see what soups you pick. =)

  97. candace

    “favorite”?? that’s too hard! But I love Butternut, Chicken Tortilla, and the Tomato soup at Paradise Bakery. Why do you think it’s so good?? (maybe they add cream?) THANKS for an amazing blog- you have a gift!!

  98. Clumbsy Cookie

    What a cool giveaway Jenny! Would it be a surprise if I told you my favourite soup is a caramel chilled one? I’m alo partial to white chocolate soup. Savory speaking I like chicken soup with nodlles and red beans soup. πŸ™‚

  99. Marie

    I guess I am pretty boring ( or maybe “classic” is a better word) but for me, there is nothing better than sitting down with a big bowl of chicken noodle soup!

  100. koryshar

    I love my grandma’s homemade chicken noodle soup. It took me a long time to replicate it. Every time I eat it I am taken back to her kitchen.

  101. s

    corn chowder with a gigantic hunk of cornbread = yum!

    thanks for having the giveaway and for always posting such pretty pictures and delicious recipes πŸ™‚

    strongverbs at gmail.com

  102. Stacie@HobbitDoor

    I am always up for a creamy baked potato soup! This year I made a Roasted Sweet Potato and Apple soup my husband and I just loved. Can you tell I just love potatoes?!

  103. Millers

    Fun stuff, I love giveaways! πŸ™‚

    My favorite soup is hands down, Chicken Tortilla Soup. YUM YUM YUM
    Even my 16 month loves it.

  104. Sarah

    I love to eat chicken tortilla soup, but I have never made it. I am pretty much a novice in the kitchen. My other favorite soup is cabbage soup. Believe it or not the recipe that my sister and I love is an old one from Weight Watchers. It is nice and spicy which we both like.

  105. Deborah

    It’s so hard to choose just one!! But I did make a Corn and Bacon chowder in March that I’m dying to make again. It was delicious!

    Great giveaways!

  106. dixie

    I love soup!! I make a big pot of some kind of soup once a week along with a loaf of homemade bread for dinner and then we enjoy the leftovers for lunches. Sometimes leftovers will make it to the freezer for another dinner. I have many many favorites: butternut squash and apple, chicken noodle, baked potato, mexican steak soup, chicken with wild rice and veggies, beef vegetable soup,chicken tortilla and the list goes on….

  107. inmomniac

    I love French Onion soup. Sooo satisfying! I can’t make it myself, though, it never comes out right. So that’s what I order when we go out!

  108. Laura P.

    I love minestrone…all the yummy vegies in a yummy tomato-based broth…yum! I also love Tuscan soup…I tried it for the first time recently and loved it! The chunky vegies with the sausage in a creamy based broth, delicious!

  109. Jessi A

    My family loves Creamy Leek and Wild Rice soup with Chicken. It is awesome. Thanks for the chance to win some great prizes. My two little monsters would love the ice cream molds.

  110. Beth

    My favorite soup is Paradise Bakery’s potato cream cheese soup! I finally found a similar recipe so I can make it myself at home! I love the dill in it.

  111. Lia

    I see there are other Chicken Tortilla soup fans out there but this one is the best.

    3-4 Chicken breast halves
    1 15 oz can black beans, undrained
    2 15 oz cans Mexican stewed tomatoes or Rotel tomatoes
    1 Cup salsa
    1 4 oz can chopped green chilies
    1 14 oz can tomato sauce
    Tortilla chips
    2 cups grated cheese
    1 Avacado

    1. Combine all ingredients except chips, cheese and avacado in large slow cooker.
    2. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.
    3. Just before serving, remove chicken breasts and slice into bite-sized pieces. Stir into soup.
    4. To serve, put a handful of chips in each individual soup bowl. Ladle soup over chips. Top with cheese and cubed avacado pieces.

  112. Spectacular Six

    My favorite soup is a cheesy potato soup. It is super easy to make and even has bacon…. couldn’t get better than that!

  113. Jacob & Angie

    My favorite soup would have to be broccoli cheese soup. I can’t wait to see all your soup posts…I need some good ones.
    THanks!!

  114. Chelsie

    i’d have to say that the classic chicken noodle with the extra healthy egg noodles are my fave…mm i could use a good recipe for that too…then I would stop buying costco’s. πŸ™‚

  115. Satisfying my Sweet Tooth

    Fun! I love the ice cream molds. My favorite soup is the creamy squash soup I just posted about on my blog a couple of weeks ago. Seriously it was SO good. At Williams Sonoma this weekend their cooking demonstration is on Fall Soups and I am really excited about it!

  116. Linda, Rochester NY

    My husband used to own a small gourmet soup shop in Rochester, NY My favorite is one his recipes: Sweet potato jalapeno cheddar. Seriously to die for.

  117. Lalycairn

    Favorite home made soup is a tie between Minstrone and chicken with barley. Of course, there is always split pea and ham, and scotch broth. Ugh, I can’t choose, I love soup in the winter.
    When I’m out, I’m a big fan of chicken tortilla or cream of mushroom (not the in a can kind, the really good kind like Mushroom and brie or something along those lines)

  118. The Shulls

    I love Potato Soup and cazuela de pollo (chilean). My husband loves Chicken Soup with lentils and barley from Better Homes and Gardens New cook Book.

    Can’t wait to see the soups you’ll be making!! Yumm!!

  119. shelley

    Chicken Tortilla by far-I love the cream based ones, but unfortunately dont make them as often as the broth because of the fattening factor-I bet you could make a yummy one that wasnt too bad for you…hint, hint

  120. creativecarryout

    I’d have to say I enjoy old fashioned chicken noodle soup the best. I’d make it a lot more often if I could get my family to enjoy it too!

  121. Meal Makeover Mom

    Jenny, terrific blog! Your contest is so timely … just yesterday, my 10-year old son said “I’m addicted to soup!” On my website, http://www.MealMakeoverMoms.com, I have a section on healthy, kid-friendly soup recipes. I’d have to say that my family’s favorite is the A-Plus Alphabet Soup. http://www.mealmakeovermoms.com/recipes/slow-cooker-soups/a-plus-alphabet-soup/
    In fact, I’ll be dishing about that recipe and a few others on my Nov. 5th radio podcast, Cooking With the Moms!! I hope you’ll listen in …

  122. Tahmina

    Grilled corn and chipotle soup. We used to have a Blue Corn Cafe here in Albuquerque that served the BEST. But now I have to go to Santa Fe if I want some. Hard with two kids under three, but well worth it!

  123. mathistown

    Fun prizes!! My favorite soup is a toss up between tomato and chicken tortilla…I’ll go with chicken tortilla! Thanks for having such a fun website!!

  124. Amy

    I have yet to find a great chili recipe that both my husband and I AND the kids like too.

    I think my absolute favorite soup is Chicken Tortilla soup for sure!

  125. Alicia & Devin

    I love giveaways and I LOVE your blog. I found it a couple of days ago and have made some of your things that have all turned out great. Thanks… I love broccoli chesse soup
    Alicia

  126. Jen

    my favorite soup is chicken tortilla soup-with lots of big chunks of chicken, corn, black beans, and tortillas. Oh and hunks of avocado on top! And cheese. Yummy! I am hungry just thinking about it.

  127. Jennifer

    I love soup! I’m thinking Corn Chowder sounds good right now… Love your blog by the way. Your recipes are really great.

  128. Meal Makeover Mom

    Jenny, great blog! Now that it’s getting cold outside, it’s definitely soup season. In fact, just yesterday, my 10-year old son said, “I’m addicted to soup!” On my website, http://www.MealMakeoverMoms.com, I have a section on healthy, kid-friendly soup recipes. I’d have to say that my family’s favorites is the A-Plus Alphabet Soup. http://www.mealmakeovermoms.com/recipes/slow-cooker-soups/a-plus-alphabet-soup/
    In fact, I’ll be dishing about it on my Nov. 5th radio podcast, Cooking With the Moms!! Listen in if you get a chance …

  129. erika

    My favorite is home-made chicken noodle soup. YUM! I also agree with Sarah whose favorite is the Weight Watchers cabbage soup. My mom used to make that and it is delish!

  130. Mandy

    I love the cherry pie cutters! My favorite soup is old school Chicken Noodle with lots of added vegetables like zucchini, yellow squash, diced sweet onions, and just a hint of roasted garlic. Too bad it’s supposed to be in the high 90’s today, or I’d make this!

  131. Suzanne

    Yeah for giveaways!

    I love your blog!. My favorite fall soup is a fabulous recipe I started making years ago, called bean and bacon soup. It has sage, lentils, white beans, and lotds of veggies and bacon. It is awesome! My husband loves it too, so thats a plus!

  132. Natalie

    Great giveaways!! My brother introduced me to your site and I love it!! My favorite soups are:
    Broccoli cheese
    Potato corn chowder
    Taco soup

    I would love to see a fast light version of the broccoli…Thanks, Natalie

  133. Kellyn

    my favorite soup is Chicken Tortilla Soup – or a soup my grandma makes with all her leftover vegetables from the week with some ground beef. Comfort food!

  134. Kevin and Vicki

    Wow…giveaways! I just stumbled onto your blog, have since bookmarked it, and now check it every day for more great recipes. My favorite soup is my Chicken and Dumplings…actually it is Rachael Ray’s from FoodTV, but it has become a family favorite, so my kids think it’s mine!

  135. Rebecca

    I am going to have to say Taco Soup. It is so yummy. I am going to make some for tomorrow. rebeccalovesdiezel@yahoodotcom

  136. Lindsey

    Good old cream of broccoli soup would have to be my favorite. I also had a tomato and roasted red pepper bisque at a cafe that was delicious.

  137. Megan

    I LOVE the soup from Cafe Rio–Chicken tortilla soup with crunchy chips, cilantro, beans, cheese and a scoop of guacamole at the bottom. I want to find a good recipe for chicken tortilla soup!

  138. Jill

    What a fun giveaway. “What is your favorite soup?” is a hard question for be because I love food. I think my favorite is french onion. I love a good bowl of french onion soup, dripping with cheese and lots of crusty bread. I also enjoy baked potato soup and my sister makes a cheeseburger soup that is pretty yummy.

  139. Dawn

    Wow Jenny you have really good giveaways here.
    Favorite soup? Hmm hard to narrow it down to one, but I love a really good French Onion Soup with a thick, baked on cheesy topping, and don’t forget the sourdough bread under the cheese. That is really warming on cold days.

  140. Michelle@Life with Three

    I love a good homemade cream of tomato soup. I also make a butternut squash soup that is fall comfort food at its best. I’m so glad the temperatures are finally cooling off and I can “fire up the soup pot!”

  141. M & S Eagar

    Hi! I love looking at your blog! You are so talented and I really enjoy trying out your recipes! You’re an inspiration to many!

    Anyway, after long thought I’d have to say that my very favorite soup is homemade chicken noodle with homemade noodles. Squeeze in a little fresh lemon and some parmigiano reggiano cheese and it will cure all that ails you. I love to make this for any member of my family who is feeling under the weather or just to warm up on a cold winter day.

  142. Sylvia

    So many!
    Chicken tortilla
    country potato
    mushroom
    tomato
    sausage and potato

    Yummy! I absolutely lobe soup and breakfast and really would like to know how to make some breakfast at my apartment in college. It is my favorite meal of the day, and it would be great to make some delicious meals.

    sarajsk@ilstu.edu

  143. Aggie

    Holy comments…so many!

    I love Pasta Fagioli…and Italian Wedding Soup…speaking of, I will have to make some soon! Great giveaway Jenny!

  144. shanda

    Well, this week I just browsed your web site looking for some good soup recipes. I would have to say your enchilada soup is amazing. I also love a recipe I came across called red chili it’s really good!

  145. Michelle

    I love a good french onion soup. And I am loving this blog! Thank you for sharing your great recipes with us.

  146. Jess

    My absolute favorite is matzo ball soup – it’s very comforting and awesome. My mother makes tiny matzo balls that are fairly dense and they’re insanely tasty…

  147. SVT

    Hi Jenny, My favourite soup and a fave of my hubby and kids is Hamburger soup. Smells so wonderful simmering on the stove and it is a hearty meal!

    I posted a link to your blog on my food blog. I find myself coming back to your blog and loving your recipes. Thanks for sharing!!
    Sheri

  148. Aubrey and Dale

    My favorite soup is a hearty vegetable soup my husband makes. Nothing better than a bowl full of yummy veggies with some heat.

  149. Steph

    Great giveaways Jenny! Love it! Hmm..my favorite soup would have to be this cream of mushroom soup I had in this cute little french cafe I had while in Paris. 11 years later and I can still taste it!

  150. Baking Away

    My favorite soup is white clam chowder. I’ve never made it from scratch before though! I usually eat it at restaurants or out of a can.

  151. Jennypenny

    I love to make Loaded Baked Potato soup. So easy, and so yummy, and it definitely hits the spot on a dreary day.

  152. jana

    I love soups, chili’s, and stews of all kinds! Anythings that fills the house with the yummy smells! But, my all time fav it Chicken Tortilla Soup!! You know with corn, black beans, and all the southwestern goodness!!

  153. Nicole

    I love the clam chowder from Market Street Grill in SLC! I love any soup that my husband loves which can be hard to find. He loves stews and chili’s and I’ve been looking for some good recipes lately. Can’t wait to see what you’ve got cooking in your kitchen!

  154. Maggie

    I have a recipe for Turkey Bisque that is amazing.It’s great for leftover turkey or you can also use chicken. We take it on ski trips. It’s been a huge hit at Church functions.

  155. CRS

    YAY for giveaways! Thank you for the chance!

    I love a good soup, and don’t really have a favorite, but if I had to pick JUST ONE, I’d have to go with Cream of Tomato. YUM!

  156. hot garlic

    So many soups, so little time! Can I really pick a favorite?? I guess I’ll say Chicken Tortilla, just to be different. And maybe if someone else is making it so I can lie to myself about how much cream is in it -homemade cream of mushroom.

  157. Elisha

    Wow Jenny, you are the most popular woman out there! OK, so I have 2: Home make chicken noodles and Cream Peas and Potatoes. Yummy! I love soup season!

  158. Raina

    I have always loved Butternut squash and chicken corn chowder. I can’t wait to see what happens here. I love reading your blog! I have you marked as a favorite, and you never seem to let me down! Good luck!

  159. Lucy

    I love a good tortilla soup! I can’t wait for it to be soup weather here in AZ – I can’t believe it’s still in the 90s!!! Just a quick comment about the potty training – my oldest was trained at 3 yrs 3 mos and my twins were trained at 3 1/2 years old (all boys). My personal opinion is when they’re ready, they’re ready and it’s a much faster process. If you start too early, you end up potty training for a long time. Don’t worry, he won’t go to college in diapers! πŸ™‚ Good luck! lucycioe at cox dot net

  160. Freeman Family

    My favorite soup is Wisonsin Cauliflower, the make it a great soup and sandwich place in Utah called Zupas. It was wonderful on a cold snowy day. I would love to know how to make it!

  161. Megan

  163. Corinna

    My favorite soup right now is Rachael Ray’s Double Chicken Dumpling soup. The chicken meatballs in it are so flavorful and I LOVE the gnocchi it. You can make it even better with homemade gnocchi YUMMY

  164. Hillary

    one of my favorite soups is called Fiesta soup. You do 2 cans chicken broth, a cup of salsa, can of kidney beans, 2 cups cooked chicken a can of corn and then add some minute rice at the end. Then you top with tortilla chips and pepperjack cheese. Yummy. The pepperjack cheese is essential to completing the dish.

  165. Richins Family

    Jenny,
    It has to be said, that my all time favorite soup is your FAMOUS chicken chili! You brought it to us right after our daughter was born, and right before we moved out of our house on Elgin… and it was absolutely fabulous! I knew you’d be famous “fer sure” after tasting that soup! You were kind enough to share the recipe with me, and guess what I take whenever one of my friends has a baby… Jen’s Shredded Chicken Chili!

  166. Kimberly

    I make a potato sausage chowder, it has potatoes, sausage, cheese, and it’s awesome on a cold winter day. The best part is putting MORE cheese on top before serving it…can’t go wrong there!

  167. CrabbyMom

    I love all soups! I am going to be making a pizza soup tomorrow in the crock pot and will be making a butternut squash soup for the first time this week too. Num!

  168. Julia12

    I love Chicken Tortilla Soup. It is one of my favorite soups, and love eating it with tortilla chips, and lots of cheese. Those are such cute give aways, thanks Jenny.

  169. Ashley K.

    I think you are in my cousin Kate Winsors ward? Anyway… one of my favorite soups is a Thai red curry soup from the Williams Sonoma Soup cookbook. It is so easy and yummy yet really authentic. Served with some pad thai noodles and you have a delish meal going on!

  170. Sherri

    Right now I am loving a Chicken Italian Soup, used fresh zucchini, peppers, noodles and a great italian flavor! It’s yummy and easy.

  171. Tressa

    Broccoli Cheese Soup. Yum! With the cold weather (AZ does NOT get cold weather!) here in UT it is definitely time for some good hot soups. πŸ™‚

  172. Kara, Garrick, Rylee and Jadyn

    I love the zuppa toscana from Olive Garden but the Tucscan Chicken soup from Carrabas is THE BEST!!! (I have a great recipe for the OG one but not for the Carrabas)

  173. Anonymous

    Hey Girl!

    Miss you!

    Christina

  174. Marcella

    My mom just made yummy split pea soup. Not a normal favorite, but add some bacon and some homemade love, and it’s the perfect fall supper.

    I could really put the icecream cookie molds to use, being in Wyoming.

  175. Dave and Tricia Folsom Family Fun

    Wow Jenny – You are quite popular! My favorite soup is Chicken and Wild Rice Soup! It is so yummy!

  176. Shelley & Scott

    My favorite soup I actually got from you. You did a recipe for Chicken Pot Pie with Puff Pastry. I didn’t have any puff pastry so I decided to make the filling a little thinner and make it into a soup and I had a baguette of crusty bread so I melted olive oil, butter and garlic salt in a skillet and tore up the baguette and toasted them and served them over the soup. It’s delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

  177. RecipeGirl

    Hi Jenny- Great prizes πŸ™‚

  182. Tracy

    354 comments, are you kidding me???

    My favorite soup is French Onion at a restaurant, but I just can’t seem to make a good one at home.

    At home, I think it’s a roasted tomato soup.

  183. Patsyk

    What a fun giveaway!

    I love some warm soup this time of year… but, only 1 favorite? hmmmm… I love a creamy potato soup but, then I also love a really nice chicken noodle soup as well!

  184. The Ricks Fix

    I love soup too, everything but clam chowder (clams are too chewy). I know it sounds boring, but you just can’t go wrong with a really good homemade chicken noodle soup. Yum. Everything about it is warm and comforting.

  185. Heidi

    Gotta say I love a great minestrone! It’s always great with a nice loaf of french bread and a salad. Yummy!

    P.S. Fun prizes girl! Love the blog!

  186. Erica Williams

    I love your blog! Thanks for all of the wonderful recipes that you have shared. I have tried, and loved, many of them. My favorite soup is usually chicken and wild rice. I’d love to see what you can do with that one!

  187. Holly

    So, I hope you have a great chicken tortilla soup recipe. I love the one at Chilli’s and would love a great recipe for it.

  188. Christi

    My absolute favorite soup is chicken tortilla soup. i make a mean pot of it!! my 3 best girlfriends get together with me and we all cook it together. i like to add rice, cheese, sour cream and guacamole pieces! OMG..it is so good the next day.

    My dh loves a chicken green chile soup at our local sandwich shop. im not sure whats in it but maybe that can give you some inspiration w/ingredients.

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your blog and you have a gorgeous family!

  189. Amber Dee

    Paradise bakery’s fire roasted tomato soup! I found the recipe on recipe zaar but it makes a huge batch and I have not yet figured out how to scale it down.

  190. The Healthy Hostess

    One of my favorite soups is Turkey Quinoa Chili
    Here is what I used:

    * 99 % extra lean ground turkey
    * 1 Darn good chili mix + 7 c. water it calls for
    * chili powder
    * cumin
    * salt and pepper
    * 1 can diced tomatoes
    * 1 can tomato paste
    * 1 can black beans
    * 1 c. roasted corn
    * 1 c. cooked quinoa

    Cook the Darn Good Chili mix as directed, with 1 can tomato paste and water. Then add rest of the ingredients. Also, I cooked the turkey in chili powder and cumin to give the chili extra flavor. Once the chili mix had cooked, I added the rest of the ingredients! It was amazing and I can’t wait to make it again!

    You go girl! What a fun contest!
    πŸ™‚

  191. Jenny

  192. buddyandsarahaws

    My fav. is chicken noodle with home made noodles. Theres nothing better than homemade soup and rolls on a cold day.

  193. amber terry andrews

    My favorite would have to be Vegetable Beef, I love the tomato base and all the veggies. Plus who doesn’t love some beef too. My husbands favorite would be clam chowder. He wasn’t too impressed with my recipe, maybe you have a good one?

  194. snbjork

    It’s too difficult to name one favorite kind of soup! I love them all! Especially if they are loaded with vegetables, beans, and pasta!

  195. Laura

    My favorite is cream of mushroom. Unfortunately no on at my house likes mushroom. So any creamy potato comes in second.

  196. Amy

    What a great giveaway!! I really LOVE your chicken corn chowder, is that what it’s called? w/the cream cheese? I LOVE it!!

  197. Anonymous

  199. Joanna

    my favorite soup of all time is miso soup!!! it’s so simple to make and there’s a lot of ways to jazz it up. it’s always good for tummy ache, too.

  200. skinnybovineskitchen

    My vote goes to Chicken Tortilla. Especially if you have all the toppings… sour cream, guacamole, corn tortilla chips. Yum, yum, yum!!

  201. Lisa

    Lately I’ve been having a craving for Lasagna Soup – a friend of mine served me some leftovers once for lunch and I have loved it ever since.

  202. Maria

    I love soup right now my favorite is this cheese totellini and veggie soup I made. We posted it on our blog! Great giveaways thanks!

  203. Breezy Skye

    I just love your blog. I’ve been keeping track for awhile but I haven’t actually made some recipes until about a week ago and I’m hooked now. Super delicious! I would have to say my absolute favorite soup is potato soup.

  204. Natalia

    My mom always made her own soup when I was growing up and she would put all sorts of yummy combos of veggies & meats. It was not only super healthy (without any preservatives like at the store) but it was also really yummy

  205. Kimberly

    Mmmm…soup is probably my favorite thing to eat all year ’round, but especially in the fall. I love potato broccoli cheddar soup and I also love a good chunky tomato pesto with artichokes and olives. Mmmm Mmmm good!

  206. Rachelle

    Hey Jenny lady – So I picked the right day to catch up on your blog! I love creamy broccoli soup but I’ve never actually made it because I 1-don’t have a great recipe 2 – probably can’t add all of the cream and cheese required to make it yummy. We need to have a little get together with the hubbies too!

  207. The Thompson's

    Ok woman! You are pretty popular I must say! I am all about the soup too when it comes to the Fall!!! My favorites are beef and barley and corn chowder. Yum yum. And you have to have the yummy cornbread or rolls to go along with it! You’re too cute! Jessie Thompson

  208. Steph

    I just LOVE coming to your blog. I have tried MANY of your recipes and they are always the BEST! Thanks for sharing!!

    My favorite soup would have to be Italian Wedding…sooo yummy..and not enough places have it.

  209. queenoftheclick

    Before we talk about soup, we must first talk about your family Jenny. You have such a pretty family – like REALLY pretty. Do you know that?

    My favorite soup is made by my sweetie – it’s a creamy broccoli soup which is to die for. It’s so easy to make. If you like broccoli, I’ll get the recipe from sweetie. πŸ™‚

    I love the prices, particularly the Williams Sonoma Cherry Piecrust cutters. I make my cherry pie for my Sweetie throughout the holidays and I would love to win!

  210. Aaron, Kelli, and Kaylan

    Bean and bacon soup has been a favorite of mine since childhood and I also love creamy potato corn chowder!

  211. Hunt Family

    My favorite soup would have to be broccoli potato cheese. I particularly love the one that Quiznos has. Yum!

    Thanks.

  212. Jess + Steve = Dylan

    My all time favorite soup has to be Steak & Potato soup. It's so hearty but not quite as heavy as a stew or a meal of steak and taters.

  213. Mona

    I LOVE taco soup, made with salsa from Abuelo's restaurant, chicken broth, ground turkey, and veggies. My daughter's fave is creamy baked potato, topped with bacon, cheese, sour cream & green onions πŸ˜‰

  214. Hess Fam

    Oh Jennifer. I hope you know I’m a lucky winner in most contests! I’m crossing my fingers!

    Ok this is my second comment and I’ve looked at a few other comments you’ve gotten… And not to many people have offered Tomato Basil soup.
    This is a very filling soup and you should definitely pick it as one of your winners. That way more people can see why it is so good.=)

    Everyone will love it. =)

  219. Zesty Cook

    WOW – Excellent giveaways– Great blog I am so excited I found you. Can’t wait to read more πŸ™‚

    zesty

  220. Grace

    good googa mooga, look at the comments!

    my favorite soup right now is black bean soup, partially blended, and served in a sourdough bread bowl. πŸ™‚

  221. katie

    Pea and Mint πŸ™‚
    I grew up hating peas but put them in a soup and I love them, the mint makes it really refreshing. Perfect now that the cold weather is coming!

  222. Sarah

    I personally love a bowl of Taco Soup. Yum. A local restaurant here has an amazing lobster bisque, so I love that too.

  223. Anonymous

    My favorite soup is split pea with either ham hocks or kielbasa sausage.

    This soup is the one of the few reasons why I look forward to winter.

  224. mimaco2

    I’m a first time poster here, but I’ve been watching and reading your blog for month. I’ve tried several of your recipies with great reviews!!

    I’d have to say my favorite soup right about now is Cheeseburger soup, yum!!

  225. Danno

    Potato Soup! However, my husband doesn’t like potatoes because he was deprived as a child (or something) so we eat chicken noodle most often.

  226. The Godfrey's

    Oh wow there are a lot of people who want free stuff! My favorite soup for sure is this yummy chicken and white bean soup with lime and cilantro. OHHHH yum! AND bonus, it is good for you.

  227. Lindsay

    I’d have to go with the family favorite of Baked Potato Soup. It’s thick and hearty, and topped with cheese and bacon bits. Mmmm…

  228. Becca

    I accidentally left a comment with my husbands account! I guess he was using his email this morning. But I say potato soup, Danno says chicken noodle.

  229. Andrea

    Wow, those are great prizes Jenny! You’re so generous! My favorite soup is always tomato, but since tomato season is basically over, I’d have to go with a mildly sweet pumpkin. But I’m a sucker for pumpkin anyway!

  230. Kameron

    Our family’s favorite soup is – without a doubt – your Creamy Chicken Vegetable Wild Rice Soup. My 6-year old just gulps it down! There are never any leftovers, no matter how much I make, which is always cause for concern the next day.

  231. Coralie

    My favorite soup has to be a creamy chicken soup or a spicy taco soup. Mmmm…I think I’ll have to make some too!

  232. Lisa

    Nice giveaway! I like a good creamy baked potato soup but if I’m trying to eat lighter, it would be a beef vegetable.

  233. Michelle

    I LOVE soups! I have a few favorites–Cheddar potato, cheddar broccoli, and tortilla soup–yum!

    p.s. I love those icecream cookie cutters, so cute.

  234. Michaiah

    I love so many soups, it is hard to say which it my favorite. I guess I’ll go with italian wedding soup – yum!

    I had the best soup once at Panera Bread, but every time I go back it is not there. It was some kind of Mexican cheesy soup with veggies and a little heat in it. Yum!

    I really enjoy Chicken Enchilada Soup! I’m looking forward to trying Pumpkin Soup and Butternut Squash soup this year though, I’ve never had it!

    My all-time favorite soup is German Tomato! It has hamburger, cabage and lots of other veggies! Very filling and yummy!

    Awesome giveaways! I love your site.

    I have many different kinds of soup that I like.

    Most favorite of all is chicken noodle with homemade noodles. Growing up it’s what I always requested for birthday dinners – and my mom always smiled or laughed because my birthday is in August! Not really soup season…

    I also like spaghetti soup, minestrone, taco soup, tomato, and cheesy soups. YUM.

    We just made a big pot of clam chowder – We use the CIA recipe as the base and add celery and some extra seasonings. Haven’t had any that tastes any better.

    Choosing a favorite soup is so hard. There are so many that I love. There is nothing like a good soup and salad. Yum!

    My favs would be clam chowder(love to have it when on the coast), squash/pumpkin soups, potato soup and corn chowder.

  241. Colleen

    my favorite soup would have to be my moms’ chicken noodle soup. it is a creamy one. so good with homemade bread. yummy

  242. stacy_ellingson

    Fun stuff Jen! Every Sunday after church we have grilled cheese and Trader Joe’s Creamy Tomato Soup – so good! My sister makes the best baked potato soup!

  243. Sara

    My all time favorite soup is Fabulous Butternut Squash soup! It is delicious, and I am craving it right now. We grew some in our garden this year, but didn’t pick them in time and they froze…so I can’t make any from my garden this year. This soup is amazing and rich with cream cheese. Yum, yum! I hope I win!!!

  244. Rachel

    Fun giveaways!!! My boys would love those ice cream sandwich molds!

    One of my favorite fall soups is one I discovered this year. It’s a 3 bean chili that has a sweet taste to it. Put some hot breadsticks with it and you have a delicious meal.

  247. Jennifer

    I can’t wait to see your versions of all these yummy soups – now if it would only cool off here in AZ to make some! My favorite is called taco tureen! Yum!

  248. RoweKlan

    My favorite soup is clam chowder in a bread bowl but it has to be fresh clams, every-time i eat it i can picture myself sitting in a wooden chair overlooking the oregon beach with the cloudy grey sky’s watching the massive waves hitting the enormous rocks and I can hear the noisy sea lions barking on the shore, I can smell the combination of the sea salt and the redwood trees around me. But it’s hard to get that feeling in Arizona πŸ™‚

    This is my “latest” favoite.

    Chicken Soup with Jasmine Rice and Ginger
    SERVES: 4
    Ingredients
    1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon jasmine rice, rinsed
    4 cups water
    One 3-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled
    3 cups chicken broth
    1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce or soy sauce
    Pinch each of salt and sugar (optional)
    1/2 cup shredded cooked chicken
    2 scallions, thinly sliced crosswise
    2 tablespoons coarsely chopped cilantro

    Directions
    In a medium saucepan, cover the rice with the water. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer until the rice is tender and porridgelike, about 25 minutes.
    Meanwhile, cut the piece of ginger into slivers: Thinly slice the ginger crosswise; stack the slices, removing the bottom rounded slice, so the stack is stable and easy to work with; cut the slices lengthwise into thin slivers.
    Add the chicken stock, fish sauce, salt and sugar to the rice, bring to a simmer and continue cooking over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir in half of the ginger and simmer for 10 minutes longer.
    Ladle the soup into shallow bowls, garnish with the shredded chicken, sliced scallions, chopped cilantro and the remaining slivered ginger and serve.
    MAKE AHEAD The recipe can be made through Step 3 and refrigerated overnight. When reheating, add extra stock to adjust the consistency.

    Great giveaway! I think I missed the noon cutoff, but I thought I’d still share my favorite.
    I love LOVE this soup called Laksa Lemak? I get it at this Malaysian place, and it’s awesome. I’ve googled the recipe a few times and it’s a little over my head, and it’s got some hard to get ingredients when you live in the sticks like I do…but basically it’s a chicken soup, kinda spicy, w/coconut milk in it too I think.
    It’s a cure all soup. Headache, eat the soup. Cramps? eat the soup. Seriously…awesome awesome stuff!!

  256. heidikins

    Holy comments! My favorite is broccoli cheese, my own recipe with a handful of shredded cheddar and a spoonful of diced red bell pepper on top. Yum!

    Cool! Thanks for the giveaway. My favorite soup is definitely broccoli-cheddar. It’s just really creamy and always seems to hit the spot.

  262. Mama Moose

    I love baked cheesy potato soup. My favorite is Applebees but since that isn’t really frugal we’ve tried our hand at some, they don’t turn out the same, but still good!
