The new year has come. We've indulged plenty over the holidays, and now seek healthier dishes to go along with our workout routines. But you know, I'm not ready for it. I am still in winter mode.

The beauty of that soup captured me.

So Many Ways to Love Pumpkin Squash Soup

Let me tempt you with my favorite seasonal soup: Pumpkin Squash Soup. This recipe evolved from my stove top and continues to change, never the same soup each time.
