Is there anything better than a warm bowl of soup or stew on a cold day? It doesn’t need to be cold to enjoy them either. In fact, we love soups and stews all year. They’re great as a first course at the beginning of a meal, or even better as the main dish. One of the things we like best, is that a big pot will last over more than a single meal, and in fact, soups actually continue to improve past that first time you serve them. Kid you not.
