The days are cold and crisp which means bundling up is in order on a daily basis. Although I am personally not a big fan of snow or winter in general, there is a comfort that the cold weather brings. Moments like walking into a house filled with the aroma of a delicious pot of soup on the stove. Ahhh! Soup is one of my favorite winter meals for so many reasons. They taste divine, warm you right up on a cold day, and you can load them up with plenty of nutritional ingredients. - By Nadia Carriere
