Brrr, it sure is cold out. Yes, you may be wondering why we are seeming so cruel as to remind you that the minute you step outside it is very likely the tip of your nose will frost over… but believe us, we have a very good reason!
What may that be, you ask? Well, dear friends, January just happens to be National Soup Month; and so, what better time of year could there be to give the world's most versatile comfort food a month all of its own; especially during the time of year where nothing quite hits the spot like a piping hot bowl of soup?
That’s why we have gathered here today, dear friends, to celebrate all that is snuggly and warm! We’re here to pay homage to every broth, bisque and bouillabaisse with recipes that span the spectrum of classic to fantastic! We’ll take you across the globe this week with recipes from hometown USA to Japan, and we know you’ll be wanting to try every one of the delectable soups before the month is done!
Now, we all have to admit: what would soup be without the soup bowl…
-messy, we think it would probably be very messy.

First up, let’s get right down classic!
That’s right, folks, we’re talking about the Gramma of Soups: Chicken Noodle. I don’t know if a child in this country has ever NOT had a bowl of this stove top staple; nor does it seem feasible that anyone has the exact same recipe for this seemingly simple tummy warmer.
However, if you are looking for another spin on this recipe to keep in your back pocket: our friends, Cheryl and Adam, have been kind enough to share their beautifully photographed Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe! These prolific, professional food photographers share their love of food, friends and one another on their blog Picture Perfect Meals, and will have your mouth watering and your hearts warming!
