'Tis Soup Season

With colder weather and chilly winds, it's that time of year when soups are beginning to find their way back onto the menu again . . .

One of our many favorites - Potato Soup - and the recipe can be found here

And they're even better when accompanied with some kind of homemade bread such as Leah's whole wheat muffins that she made to go with the above soup the other evening . . .

A perfect fall dinner!

And if anyone would like the recipe for the muffins, here it is:

Whole Wheat Muffins (adapted from Mom's 4-H muffin recipe :)

-2 cups whole wheat flour
-3 tsp. baking powder
-1/4 cup sugar
-1/2 tsp. salt
-1 egg
-1 cup milk
-1/4 cup oil

Grease muffin pan. Mix dry ingredients together. In another bowl, beat egg slightly. Add milk and oil. Combine dry and liquid ingredients and stir slightly – just until they are mixed adequately. Do not attempt to remove all the lumps. Let sit for about 5 minutes. Dip batter into muffin pans filling each cup 2/3 full. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-16 minutes. Yield: 12 muffins

We always double the recipe and freeze whatever is left over to be enjoyed later for breakfasts. And depending on your oven, you may need to adjust the temperature and length of baking time. We always pay close attention to our muffins the last few minutes of baking as they can get too done rather quickly!


  1. Yummm...this looks delightful! After spending the day an apple orchard, we enjoyed a large dutch oven full of hearty chili. You're right...soups are so good in the Fall! Thanks for the muffin recipe...they look like the perfect accompaniment.
