Salmon and Spring Vegetable Chowder

Serve with artisan rolls-

While I love a fresh piece of wild salmon either grilled or baked springtime seems the perfect season to chunk it up in a chowder and pair it with tender spring vegetables. This version is lighter than a typical chowder but hearty enough as a meal. All you’ll need is a hunk of artisan bread but a side salad would be a nice complement.

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

I have never made a creamy chicken soup at home, but have ordered creamy soups in the heart of fall or the dead of winter when you just want to take the chill out of your bones. I actually first tested this on the first of October in 90 degree weather, but we cranked the a/c and my family rather enjoyed this fall/winter must-make soup, going back for seconds.

Beef and Cheddar Cheese Chowder

Served with green salad with maple dressing-

I threw together this soup one day when my oldest daughter was feeling run down. She loves Whole Foods Market’s version but declared my version just as good. It’s so simple to make and adding chopped spinach to an energizing protein-rich base balances hormones and boosts immunity.
