And now for the give away of this lovely Emile Henry ceramic soup pot/tureen. Don’t you love a piece that does double duty cook and serve? I think you will not only love it for its good looks, but also for its ability to efficiently conduct heat using lower temperatures. Made of natural materials with a non-porous glaze no oil is needed to prevent sticking to the pot and allows for gentle healthy cooking of soups, stews, chili and anything that one likes to braise. Beautifully insulated it also kept my soup warm for a good three hours sitting off the heat (perfect for a holiday open house event). Unlike metal pots clean up is a snap with no burnt on crusts to scrub. If you would like to win this amazing stock pot please go over to my Instagram (follow me) and leave a comment tagging a friend on the soup photo. For an extra entry leave a comment here with your favorite soup.


Here is one of my favorite soups using fresh butternut squash and Thai basil picked from my garden today. Using the Emile Henry stock pot eliminated the need for oil, but if you are using a metal pan add a teaspoon or two of vegetable oil to cook the curry paste and onions. If you like your soup spicy then certainly kick up the amount of curry paste.


Thai Style Coconut Chicken Soup with Butternut Squash

1 to 2 teaspoons Thai red curry paste

1 small onion, thinly sliced

1 (13.5 oz) can coconut milk

3 cups chicken broth

2 tablespoons light brown sugar

1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, diced

1-tablespoon fresh lime juice

2 cups thinly sliced boneless, skinless chicken

garnish: chopped green onions and Thai basil leaves

Heat stockpot over medium-low heat. Add the onions and red curry paste; cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until fragrant and onions are softened. Add the coconut milk, broth and brown sugar; increase heat and bring to the boil. Add the squash, lime juice and chicken and cook for 8–10 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the squash is tender. Top the soup with the green onion and basil leaves to serve. Serves 4–6.


I will randomly choose a winner in 2 weeks. Good luck and happy shopping.

  1. My favorite soup is a simple homemade chicken and vegetable soup. It’s all about the homemade stock and the longggg simmering time. Soup is like a hug in a bowl!

  2. Italian Wedding Soup? It’s so hard picking a favorite soup. Like trying to chose a favorite food, it’s all good!

  3. Ava’s favorite soup is Rhode Island clam chowder which is a mix of Manhattan & New England style. I have won a prize before so I will disqualify myself for this one.

    • Well Ava has good taste and you are nice to disqualify yourself but not doing it. If you are lucky enough to win again then that’s it-you are just plain lucky. It’s all done fair and square.

  4. My favorite soup is an Italian-style soup I created many years ago for a contest and won $500. It was my husband’s, as well. It is titled Etruscan Peasant Soup and has chicken, sausage, tomatoes, spinach and cannellini beans with chicken broth, garlic & onions.

  5. My all time favorite soup is Chicken Tortilla Soup. ❤ But, I am learning to love many new things weekly!!

  6. I wish I were in DE to come to this sale! Anyway, I love as the temps cool; Fall and soups are the perfect pair. A favorite go-to soup of mine is cream of carrot. Ingredients include carrots cooked in stock (water, chicken or veggie), with bay leaves; saute onions in butter and add flour to make a roux; add to soup; mix well, and then use an immersion blender to puree; add a dash or two of cayenne pepper and sugar to taste; mix well, and then add whipping cream, half and half, or milk; mix well, and then serve with a dollop of Greek style yogurt and grated nutmeg.

    • I know this sale sounds like a dream come true for anyone who loves to cook.
      thank you ever so much for sharing your soup recipe here. I really appreciate that.

    • Thanks for stopping by Sharon. I love wedding soup, too. My grandmother made the best and I sure wish I had her recipe.

  7. Hi Lisa – I love many kinds of soup but my favorite to make and to eat is my mother’s corn chowder (she was from New Hampshire so it’s probably correctly “chowda” LOL). She used salt pork in it along with the rest of the normal ingredients, but if she couldn’t find that she used thick bacon. My husband and daughter love it, too, and it’s so good I will serve it to company with some nice crusty bread and a side salad. Thank you for hosting the give-away!

    • Nothing better than preserving favorite family recipes from mom. Your corn chowdah sounds like it is made with fantastic ingredients and a whole lot of LOVE

  8. our family shares in our love soups, stew and chili – we share recipes and invent them on our own, especially fun for tailgating

    • As one who loves to create original recipes I totally approve of your soup methods. Whose your favorite team to tailgate?
