This past week with maybe one exception, Mother Nature has made it clear that the cold weather has arrived and it is time to break out the gear to stay warm outdoors. To stay warm indoors, it is also time to break out all the soup and stew recipes we love to prepare.
My slow cooker has returned from its summer vacation and together we’ve been testing recipes for braised beef, pork shoulder and even a chicken curry. All of them were tasty, but have not yet met my standards for the blog. I want to work on them to be sure they are worth your effort!
In the meanwhile, I did want to share this recipe for Tuscan White Bean and Kale Soup. It’s easy, hearty and is very flexible. I made it to share with my cousins this past week when we gathered at my house to learn how to make string cheese (pictures coming soon to the blog). After a busy morning, it was so nice to sit down and share something warm and comforting with two women who mean the world to me.
I hope you make it soon and enjoy it with people you love. Read Tips from The Kitchen Scout at the end of the recipe for ways to mix it up to create your own version. And if you are looking for a good squash recipe, there is a link at the end of the post for my Butternut Squash Risotto that appeared on the blog one year ago.
Until next week!

As always, I would love to hear what you think in the comments below. If you make the soup, please let me know how it goes!
