Heather is a mom to three kids, who all love to cook! Together, they are the Kids in the Kitchen with Girl and Her Kitchen, creating food and recipes the whole family will love!
As the weather turns colder (um…snow last week?) I usually turn to comfort food to feed my family. Sure, we all love the classic, indulgent comfort food once in awhile, but comfort food doesn’t always have to be that way. A favorite around here when the air has a bite in it is soup. I have so many different soup recipes to choose from and my kids love them all. We try creamy soups, hearty soups, stews and of course classics, like chicken noodle. A hot bowl of soup for dinner not only warms the body, but it warms the spirit. Adding fresh ingredients, getting the kids to help out with chopping and adding vegetables, and putting in a few special touches is sure to bring a bowl of goodness to the table.
