  1. Homemade beer cheese soup. Recipe is as follows: Beer, a lot of cheese, and some spices (it all changes as we make it up everytime)!

  2. My all time fav soup is an Italian “throw it all in”. My Nona is from Taranto, Italy and moved here in her 20’s, after she met and married my grandpa during WWII. My grandpa was stationed in Italy, he didn’t speak Italian and she didn’t speak, English, but love knows no barriers, right?!?! Anywho, Nona loves cooking and like any tried and true Italian throws in a pinch of this and a dash of that, and voila! The soup that is my favorite has a tomato and chicken broth base with penne noodles, sliced and quartered zuchhinni and Italian sausage (I use turkey to make it healthier). I throw it all in a crock pot with garlic and seasoning and let it simmer on low all day (noodles go in at the end). Fresh garlic bread for dipping! 😊😊

  3. Chicken enchilada soup from Chili’s restaurant. Best part – I don’t know the recipe because someone else makes it for me.

  4. The best soup I’ve ever had was a beer cheese soup from a restaurant in New Orleans. I tried this soup about 30 years ago when I lived there.? It was so delicious I will never forget it. Unfortunately the restaurant closed before I could figure out how to make it or get the recipe, so if anyone out there has a good recipe for this type of soup please share.

  5. My husband makes the absolute best potato soup, I love it!! French Onion is also one of my favorites!!

  6. My fave is my late Grandma’s vegetable soup. I have tried many times to recreate it, but it’s just not quite the same

  7. My favorite would be vegetable beef made from a left over roast! I have sweet memories of having the roast for dinner with my family when the kids were younger and then knowing the left overs would be made into the vegetable soup later in the week!

  8. Favorite soup?!? So hard to pick one. ❤️ Love how it can simmer all day filling the house with aroma of delicious. My favorite is the vegetable soup my grandmaw made with veggies she had canned from her garden. I don’t have the exact recipe but I doubt she ever one.
