I think fall is indeed my favorite season, there are so many things to love… the crisp cool air, the leaves changing, the smells, the foods…  I adore fall!

It’s getting quite chilly out there lately!  Which is good – because it’s perfect soup weather.

Some soup for dinner, a nice wine for dessert, a comfy blanket next to your hubs on the porch… okay I think I’ve set the scene for the perfect “at home” date night :)

Bring on the chilly late fall!!!





This Zuppa Toscana soup is hearty, warm, and chocked full of good stuff!  Plus we are throwing it in the slow cooker to make it even EASIER for ya!!

Now, I’m not a spicy gal, so I’ve made mine with mild sausage (not the traditional Zuppa Toscana way).  But, if your more of a thrill seeker in the spicy sector and are looking for the real Zuppa Toscana way (spicy!!) – have at it – spice it up with the hottest sausage you can get your hands on!!
