Here is another fun summer recipe that will certainly cool off the most discerning of palates. My wife is not one for fancy soup —  even chilled soup  — but she loves peaches, so this will certainly be a recipe I make again and bring some home for her to try. I'd suggest when possible using fresh peaches that you freeze yourself, but bagged peaches from the grocery store work well in a pinch. You can try substituting watermelon, cantaloupe or nectarines for a different flavor profile.

How many of you have leftover turkey after a nice dinner with all the trimmings?  This soup is an economical way to utilize the carcass, leftover meat, mashed potatoes and corn. This recipe calls for turkey but can be easily adapted to use with chicken. The addition of heavy cream at the end finishes the soup with a creamy richness. The first step is to cook down the carcass in enough water to cover the bones. Make sure you cook it down on a simmer for at least 2 hours to extract the flavor out of the bones and meat.

Nothing says lovin' more than a fresh chilled bowl of avocado and pumpkin soup.   The creaminess of the avocado blended with the pumpkin puree really brings out the deliciousness of both in this soup. Then, top off the soup with delightfully crunchy pumpkin seeds. You have a wonderful summer dish. If you really want to kick up the presentation, find some soup bowls with handles, ladle the soup into the bowls. Then dice up an avocado and add it as a garnish with the toasted pumpkin seeds, and just a dash of cumin.

Once upon a time, about 13 billion years ago, there was total darkness and nothing existed. Then, for some strange reason, a dense piece of volatile matter was formed. I'm not sure why. Shortly afterwards, there was a "Big Bang" and this matter exploded and was thrown outward. Even though you and I did not witness the event, this story is based on reliable information. Oh, speaking of you and me. While this debris was traveling outwards, something very peculiar happened.

What makes a more "souper" meal than a nice hot bowl of soup? Soup is more than just a comfort food — it can provide many health benefits.   Soup is first food that comes to mind when cooking for someone who is sick. But is there any truth to the idea that soup can make people feel better? Yes. Soup is easy to digest and is often used for people who do not feel well or those who have trouble chewing, swallowing or are recovering from an illness. Vitamins and minerals are retained in the broth during the cooking process making a nutrient-rich liquid.

This is a wonderfully easy recipe to prepare. And better yet, it's a soup that's loaded with flavor. If you are concerned about the waistline, then substitute the half and half or heavy cream with 1-percent milk. Make sure you gradually add in the milk at the end or it might curdle due to the temperature of the soup.  You can also experiment with using some white or red onion for color and a change in flavor. If you want some more heat, spice it up with a little of your favorite hot sauce, or a touch more of ground red pepper.

Thursday is Valentine's Day. And yes, my thoughts of love are of my family and friends, but I must confess that I also love reading The Herald-Mail newspaper. Every morning, I start my day with a big mug of coffee and The Herald Mail. I even get up on work mornings an hour early just so I have time to enjoy it. Once I get to work, I see the benefits of the Newspapers in Education Program. The Herald-Mail donates newspapers every week to schools in the county, which are great teaching tools for educators.

This soup recipe is a delicious Mexican variation called chicken tortilla. The key as always is to use fresh ingredients and to use a quality chicken stock or broth as the base. If you have fresh tomatoes, then please use them, but canned will work equally as well. Do not saute the veggies until they turn to mush. Instead, simply bring out the flavor and allow everything to blend together. I also prefer sautéing in grapeseed oil because it imparts no flavor and takes higher heat.
