I’m not happy my friends… it’s hot again here in Houston, and that’s just not allowed during “Soup Season.” It’s actually been raining ALLLLL day long, and you’d think with rain, it would at least cool down a bit. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. Instead, we just have warm, muggy, humid rainy days and it’s […]

White Chicken Chili

Chicken Chili Recipe on { lilluna.com } #chili #soup

Would you believe it warmed back up again here in Houston this past week?! Pretty sad!! The funny thing is, my mom has told me how cool (and sometimes cold) it’s been back in Arizona the past month. Pretty ironic for me to think since we always sweated a bit on Halloween in Arizona. Looks […]

I have one last soup to share with you before I have an awesome round-up of Soup Goodness for you this weekend. This next one was made by my mom and I have to admit I was a little hesitant when she said it had sausage and tortellini. I love both but couldn’t image it […]
