Fall is officially here and winter is quickly approaching.  I am not looking forward to the winter months and snow, but I am looking forward to one thing.  Soup season.   I could eat soup all year long, but there is nothing better than a warm bowl of comforting soup in the colder months.  I love a good hearty soup and this creamy soup will become a new family favorite.

  1. I keep making the stupid mistake of reading your emails before lunch. My stomach is growling even louder now! This looks delicious, and I’m printing it out to make on Sunday. Thank you!

  2. I never EVER post reviews although I get most recipes from online sites – I made this from 1/2 smoked turkey and 1/2 smoked chicken my husband put on the smoker with hickory wood chips — OH MY GOD this was delicious. I also used canned gravy and substituted it for one of the cups of broth (I also used homemade broth) and arborio rice (risott0) for a nice thick grain. MAKE THIS IMMEDIATELY
