I'm a soup lover twelve months a year, but never is it more comforting than on one of these chilly Minnesota autumn days.

I enjoy making soup at home -- sometimes on the stovetop, but more frequently in my Insta Pot or Crock Pot. There's nothing like walking in the door at the end of the day when a batch of soup has been in the slow cooker all day.

Sometimes though, I just want to pop in somewhere and grab a piping hot, tasty bowl of soup created by one of our area eateries.
