The Best Ever 25 Soups and Stews for Fall – There is something for everyone in this fabulous ‘best of’ collection!

collage of soups and stews


When I first fell in love with cooking, it was the ability to create incredible flavors that most excited me about getting into the kitchen.

Soup recipes are the perfect place to experiment with building layers of rich flavor.

We are a divided house when it comes to soups. Chad loves brothy soups and I love stick-to-your-ribs soups.

I figure, if I am going to eat soup, it should be hearty enough to be a meal. To keep everyone happy, I make both brothy and hearty soups, and so lucky for you, that means you get recipes for both.

Grab your spoon and get your soup on!

You are going to love these.  Get started cooking and maybe you can try them all by winter!  We might just have a new edition for you then. Try these fabulous fall soups that freeze well.

Dinner’s Ready!

  1. I made the Cheddar Beer Soup recipe yesterday and it was wonderful. I only had regular Budweiser so I used that, I also added diced onion to the pot and orzo to give it a little more bulk. Thanks so much. Will be making this again.

  2. All because of this posting, I'm hosting Soup Saturday's at my home during the fall. Hoodies, Blankets, Fire Pit and soup. Stories to be told and afterwards, desserts to be had. Thanks for this posting! I know how a GREAT and plentiful selection to choose from 🙂

  3. Thank you for posting these for us to access. These are just in time for our cold winters here in WI. My DIL loves soup, so when she drops off our grandsons in the mornings, I bless her with a bowl of soup for lunch. Now I have an even greater pick of recipes.

  4. I made the broccoli and cheese yesterday, a cold day, and it was very delicious: and a "keeper". Thank you for all your recipes.

  5. Hi ! For the chicken and dumplings, do you cook the chicken first before adding it to the soup mixture? Thanks-

    1. The way the recipe is written, you will add uncooked chicken to the pot. If you are using left over cooked chicken you can adapt the recipe to skip the part where you cook the chicken. Enjoy and let us know how it goes!

  6. Bookmarked this post! I love to try these recipes soon. I am pretty sure my kids will love them. Thanks for sharing and keep the posts coming!

  7. I would love a really good new england clam chowder. A copycat one from The Perch in chandler Airazona .
