Since 2010, we've made a lot of soups, shared a lot of recipes, and found the courage to toss whatever we have in the pantry into the stockpot, slow cooker or pressure cooker, secure in the knowledge that soup will emerge.
Now it's time for me to lug my Dutch oven, containers of frozen stock, and ladles back into The Perfect Pantry® kitchen, where I spend most of my time.
I know that many of you also follow The Perfect Pantry, and I've always posted my original soup recipes there. I'll keep doing that, so please sign up for email updates if you don't already get them. I post soup recipes all year round, along with other recipes that combine what I have in my pantry with fresh ingredients from the markets and farm stands.
This site will remain available, so you can always dig into the archives to find any of the soup recipes, by using the search box on the right. Just type in the ingredient or recipe you'd like to find. Many of my original recipes (you can find them under The Big List of Soups, above) also have made an appearance on The Perfect Pantry, and many more will hop over there.
I'll keep our Facebook page active, so I can continue to share soups from other food bloggers. I often post favorite soup, stew and chili recipes on Pinterest.
You might also like my new bi-monthly newsletter, Tidbits, featuring good bits that don't make it to the blog.
So, please join me in The Perfect Pantry, where the Soup Chick will be hanging out, stirring the pot (so to speak), and having a grand time.
I've had a grand time here, with you, and I can't express how grateful I am that you've been here in the kitchen with me.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
