Crockpot Minestrone Soup

Yummmmy this is another favorite soup of mine and I can actually eat them for days.  Its super healthy with all the vegetable and just the right amount of pasta.  Have a bread on hand and its all you need.   Its been cold for a couple of days and I just cooked  in my every trusty crockpot and just freeze them individually and pop it in the microwave when I wanted to have some. 

You can totally make it vegetarian by using vegetable broth..

Crockpot Potato Soup

Interesting venture today.  I made something that I disliked for a very long time...POTATO SOUP.  Whats about it that is so very delicious which made me make it couple of times now.  Bacon and cheese!!!

We had a church gathering and everyone was asked to bring soups and after looking around, I found this wonderful crockpot soup which does not need babysitting.  All in a pot ! and best of all no knife and cutting board.


1 30oz frozen diced hash brown
1  can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 32oz box of chicken broth
1 8oz cream cheese (full fat)
1 packet of bacon bits ( half to add into the soup mix and the other half for garnish)
1 packet of shredded cheddar cheese (garnish)
Salt and Pepper to taste


In a slow cooker add all the ingredients and cook on high for about 4 to 5 hours.  About 1 hour before cooking time is over add the cubed cream cheese. Stir well.  Cheese will be white and curdy but keep stirring every now and then. It will eventually melt and thicken the soup.

Serve with remainder bacon bits and cheddar cheese.
