The Soup Chick hangs up her ladle

The Soup Chick mascot!

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.

The Saturday Simmer: Soup, stew and chili recipes for leftover turkey

Leftover turkey pinto bean chili, from Kalyn's Kitchen.

By the time next weekend rolls around, we'll be knee deep in leftover turkey (and leftover everything else) from the Thanksgiving feast. For some people, leftovers are the best part of the meal! In our house, we reheat the T-day meal on the next day, but by the day after that, someone will have stripped the turkey carcass, and left a container of turkey meat waiting for creative repurposing. What's more inspiring -- and easier -- than chopping or shredding the turkey and magically transforming it into soup, stew or chili, like this leftover turkey and pinto bean white chili with lime and cilantro, from Kalyn's Kitchen?

And we're back, almost.

Dutch oven.

Thank you all for letting me know that you're still making soup while I've been on a little break.

For many of you, and for me, too, weekends seem to be the time you get out the soup pot. So, here's my plan.

Starting next month, every Saturday morning (just after midnight East Coast time), I'll share links to soups, stews or chili recipes I think you will enjoy. Those of you who liked Seven soups every Saturday will like the format, and you'll have the recipes in time to plan your weekend cooking. (Remember, you can still check those "seven soups" posts by using the recipe index in the right-hand column.)

Some weeks I might share just a few recipes, and some weeks more, but I promise to try hard to keep it interesting, and to present you with some new ideas to feed your inner "soupie." Each week's links will share a common theme, whether seasonal or focused on a specific ingredient. Please feel free to suggest themes or recipes you'd like to see: either leave a comment below, or write to me directly lydia AT ninecooks DOT com and share your ideas.

If this sounds like fun, and I know it will be fun, I'll see you in a few weeks. Happy August!
