  3. I love so many soups in the fall and winter - bean soup & split pea soup are tow of my faves!

  4. I love fall because it means it is time to make squash soup. It is so good for you plus it tastes great. My new favorite is using a Delicata squash. Now that I am thinking about it I will have to make some today.

  5. Thanks for sharing your soup recipe. Sounds delicious. One of my favorite soups is baked potato soup.

  6. I love to make potato soup and serve it in sourdough bread bowls. 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍

  8. My favorite soup is potato soup. It is the most requested by my family. My grandson even wants it is the Summer.

  9. I make homemade chicken noodle soup ... Yes, I make my own noodles, too! I love your posts Joy. You do a fabulous one

  10. Gotta try your soup recipe, it sounds delicious! I love most soups, I really don't have a favorite. Thanks for the coupons, love your post!

  11. My favorite Fall Soup to Make is Chicken Noodle Soup Thanks for the awesome coupons and a chance for a fab cartridge. It's been one fun week here at the "JOYful" blog. Hope your Sunday is going perfect!!

  12. My fav Fall soups are French Onion Soup, Chicken Noodle Soup & Chicken/Rice Soup. Thanks for the coupons & another giveaway. Enjoyed the Greek Festival in Dallas yesterday. Ate gyros & baklava sundae. Watched a cooking demo of Pastitsio & sampled some they handed out. Brought home baklava.

  13. My favorite is also taco soup. We are camping and I made a big crock pot. Umum good. I love your products especially the stamps.

  14. My favorite falls/winter soup would have to be New England Clam Chowder with warm buttermilk biscuits

  15. Congratulations, Cari! Enjoy your new cartridge!

    Thanks for sharing the coupons, Joy. I like so many different soups, but I guess I'd choose vegetable beef as my favorite for fall.

  16. Does red beans and rice count for my favorite soup? I make a big jar of the Cajun spice mix about this time every year & use it all winter long!

  17. I LOVE soup - but I've yet to find a great recipe that I like to make! I'm a fan of a really good creamy tomato soup, French Onion, a thicker Tortilla Chicken soup. I guess I get spoiled by having my favorites at restaurants and then nothing tastes as good when I try to make it! Thanks again for your coupons and for sharing your talent!

  19. Thanks for the Taco Bean recipe sounds great! My favorite recipe is creamy cheeses broccoli soup.Thanks for a great week of sharing projects/recipe/your coupons/giveaways!

  20. Our favorite soup is Taco soup that's very similar to yours, it uses salsa instead of the tomatoes and Rotel. It just won't get cool enough to make it for another month:/

  21. Congrats, Cari! My favorite fall/winter soup to make is what I call hamburger leftover soup. I freeze leftover vegetables from meals. Then when I have enough leftovers I brown one pound of hamburger, add the leftover vegetables, add a chopped onion, water, and some beef bouillon. I might even add some celery....just depends on what I have in the fridge.
    If I'm feeling lazy, I will brown one pound of hamburger, open a package of Bear Creek potato soup; Mix according to directions. Add the hamburger and some cheese. Yum!
    Thanks for sharing your time, talents, imagination and coupons with us.

  22. Your taco soup sounds delicious. I copied the recipe so that I can try it. My family's favorite is New England Clam Chowder served with hot San Francisco sour dough bread. My youngest son and I also like what we call "Gunk." It has hamburger, diced tomatoes, kidney beans, onions, carrots and either potatoes or pasta.

  23. Your soup sounds amazing! My favorite fall soup is Broccoli Cheese soup. I just can't get enough! Thanks for the coupons. The Splendid Soiree cartridge looks super fun!

  24. I make a pepper soup in my VitaMix - red, yellow, orange peppers, tomatoes, shallot, lime juice, habanero (nice and spicy!), chicken base, cilantro, garlic, salt - blend till steaming - add sweet corn, black beans and stir. Optional: add chicken (cooked), guacamole, and sour cream on top to serve.

  25. Fall and soup just go together. My favorite is cheesy potato soup with bacon. Your soup sounds quite yummy, I will be trying it next week. Thx so much!!!

  26. My favorite winter soup is vegetable soup, and so healthy too. Thanks for sharing everything with us.

  27. Our family's favorite fall/winter soup is Minestrone. I make it with a chicken broth base & then add shaped pasta, diced tomatoes, kidney beans, white beans, zucchini, celery, carrots, green beans, yellow or white onion, garlic & sometimes a small amount of diced potatoes. It's just about the only dish I can get away with where my husband doesn't complain that there's no meat. Your taco soup sounds awesome! I'll have to add that to my repertoire. Thanks for another fab giveaway!

  29. Your recipe sounds wonderful! Our family favorite is pea soup, yeah, I know many people say "Yuck"! My family loves it!

  30. I love to make jalapeΓ±o corn chowder. It's low in WW points and is so yummy, if you like spicy. It warms you from the inside out! I'm going to try your taco soup soon. It sounds good! TFS

  31. I love a 10 bean soup with a ham bone - the recipe makes a full gallon and it disappears within a couple of days...
