Pumpkin Bisque with Smoked Gouda Recipe -I love the smell of this rich, cheesy soup as it bubbles on the stove. The Gouda cheese adds a delightful smokiness that just says autumn to me.—Kerry Dingwall, Ponte Vedra, Florida
This is possibly the easiest soup ever. Every kid over the age of eight at my house can make this without help. If you don't happen to care for cabbage and carrots, or don't have time to chop them, try frozen corn or peas. If you happen to have a cup or two of already-cooked chicken in the freezer, or maybe a leftover piece or two of deli chicken, you can prepare this in 10 minutes.
Recipe of the Day: Tuscan Tomato and Bread Soup Authentically known as pappa al pomodoro in Italian, this classic Tuscan seasonal soup is simmered with summer tomatoes, basil and a cup of white wine. It's the most-delicious way to rejuvenate day-old bread and, after one spoonful, you'll understand why Anne calls it "summertime in a bowl."
