Winter is here, bringing single digits to Michigan — and perhaps a hankering for something warm and filling for dinner.

Today the 13 Twenty-Four Blog will be sharing soup making tips and delicious soup, stew, and chowder recipes for members of our apartment community to try out this month.

Beef stew is a favorite for a hearty, filling meal. Tender pieces of beef paired with potatoes, carrots, and onions hit the spot. We couldn’t pick just one recipe, so we turned to for a variety of beef stew recipes to choose from.

My Favorite Broccoli Cheese from Cooking Classy

This thick soup combines broccoli and cheese in a creamy flavor delight. The recipe uses both sharp cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese, plus onions and chicken broth, to make a dish sure to make your mouth water.

Corn Chowder from Chef in Training

Corn chowder, with its golden niblets of tastiness paired with golden cornbread, is the perfect fill-you-up supper dish. This recipe is creamy, thick, and full of flavor to bring back your favorite memories of the season. One reviewer, Jessica, wrote: “I recently won a soup cook-off at work with this recipe. Everyone was raving about it, so I gave them the recipe and your website.”

Tomato Basil Soup

This classic soup has never been easier than this delicious version from Six Sisters’ Stuff. Cook it in a slow cooker and with minimal effort after work, dinner is on the table.
