On the stove top or in the crock pot, a bubbling soup is inviting and comforting. An easy, healthy and economical way to entertain in the fall and winter months. People gathering around the table, spoons in hand, hovering over steamy bowls, talking about life, so grounding and beautiful.

On the radio a few days ago I heard a woman talking about hospitality. Her main premises was hospitality should be the act of inviting people into your home with love, and making them feel comfortable. Well, I don’t know a meal that displays that attitude better than one of the savory recipes below.

I can’t wait, so here they are in all their delicious glory.
