Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup

This recipe for Delicioso White Bean, Fennel & Italian Sausage Soup is one I found, and adapted, from Cooking Light Magazine. I didn’t change the recipe much, but I did add more fennel (because I love the light anise flavor of fennel a lot lately), and I also increased the amount of white beans from the original recipe, and I omitted the sage and parsley because I forgot to purchase them at the market. Doh!

Other than that, this recipe I’m sharing is pretty much just as it was written in the magazine. I DO NOT take credit for this recipe, but I do take credit for sharing it with you here on Kudos Kitchen in case you missed it in Cooking Light Magazine. I strongly urge you to make this soup. It’s delicious!

Seasonally Delicious Creamy Pumpkin Corn Chowder with Shrimp #PumpkinWeek

My neighbor came over to my house one day in mid-August with a bag of corn on the cob she’d brought me from Wisconsin. What a treat! I thanked her profusely for the unexpected gift and stuck them in my fridge knowing that I’d use them for something soon. Days passed, and I still hadn’t used them…

Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Chili with Pumpkin Shaped Biscuits

This chili can be made with or without meat. Since my husband enjoys his chili with meat, I added browned bits of Italian sausage into the slow cooker along with all the other ingredients. However, by omitting the sausage and swapping vegetable broth for the beef broth, this chili becomes completely vegetarian. Talk about versatile!

This recipe is also a great way to sneak extra veggies into you kids without them knowing. The creaminess doesn’t come from cream at all; it comes from cooked and pureed cauliflower. They’ll never even suspect you pulled one over on them. Score one for mom! After all, it’s done in the name of love, and that can never be wrong!

The Original and Best Fall Festival Spaghetti Squash Soup

Since we had an overabundance of spaghetti squash in our garden this year, I’ve been trying to come up with new recipe ideas that will utilize this delicious and flavorful winter squash. Since spaghetti squash is widely available in most markets this time of year, so if you don’t grow your own, I urge you to pick a few up at the market and make this soup.
