I can’t believe it’s been over a year since my last Lost in the Kitchen post but with this winter weather upon us, what better way to survive that than with some delicious soups from The Soup Sisters and Broth Brothers Cookbook! I absolutely loved the Soup Sisters’ first cookbook and still constantly refer back to it for some of my favourite recipes, but now with this new cookbook with over 100 more seasonal recipes, I may have found some new faves to add to the rotation.
Among all the recipes I sticky-note tagged to try out, this was one of the ones that stood out to me immediately and that’s why I chose that one to make first. Not only was it delicious, as expected, but it was even more tasty than I thought it would be! It’s got a great amount of heartiness from the potatoes, and while I wasn’t sure about the sprinkling of dill on top, it adds a nice flavour to it. This soup will definitely fill you up on a cold winter day! (I did freeze some leftovers to have at another time and the tastiness holds up still!)

I love chili and have only ever made it in a slow cooker, so on an especially cold Sunday, I thought it would be the perfect time to try the chili recipe in this cookbook. There are quite a number of ingredients required for this recipe which, being an inexperienced cook, I was surprised at like cinnamon (?) and two kinds of tomatoes (diced AND crushed). The great thing about making your own soup is getting to leave out the things you don’t like – though that can backfire – but I took the chance. So even without celery, red peppers and the parsley garnish, this chili still tasted yummy and filling!
This recipe is by Brenda Searle, Soup Sister and can be found on page 64.
While I’ve only tried two recipes so far, there are many many more that I’m excited to get around to. I love that there are more than just regular soups in this installment, with a recipe that includes Vietnamese Beef Pho as well as preparation techniques and classic soup stock recipes.
