Hearty Winter Soup Recipes To Warm Your Bones

Nothing says “cozy” like a big bowl of soup.

Now that the weather has finally cooled down, comfort food is what we’re all craving. Nothing says “cozy” like a big bowl of soup, but no one wants to spend all evening slaving over a hot stove when energetic toddlers (and 5,000 other things) are needing our attention. Keep it simple this winter by whipping up a few soups that don’t require much time or effort. Bonus points if you make an extra large batch that can be frozen for later meals.
