Every winter I love creating new soup recipes. There is nothing better than warming up with a hot bowl of hearty soup on a cold winter day. I don’t know where all my blog followers are reading from, but in New Jersey this snow is getting out of control! There is more snow coming this afternoon too.
Warm up this winter with this hearty tomato and bean soup.
