I do love a good pot pie, and I love it even more when the pot pie crust is made out of creamy, dreamy mashed potatoes. And I also love dishes that I can make ahead and then just bake up later when things are busy. I get all of this and more with this easy recipe for chicken pot pie with mashed potato crust…the more is the delicious taste of tender chicken with carrots and celery in a light herbed sauce, and did I mention the mashed potato topping?

Of all the many soup recipes I have on this site (and I have 88 – I just counted), I think the ones I make in the slow cooker are my favorites. There is something about the low and slow process of simmering gently all day long that gives soups and stews such a rich, homey, comforting flavor. And so while I do love my various and sundry chicken noodle soup recipes, I figured it was high time I gave this comfort food classic a whirl in the slow cooker. And yep, it was a good, good thing.

Two of the very favorite things in my kitchen are bacon and lemons – I am never without both of these. So I’m not sure why it took me so long to realize that the salty bacon and the tart taste of lemon would be heavenly together, but luckily I finally did…and in the form of the Southern husband’s all-time favorite pasta dish: the classic pasta carbonara. He is not a big pasta fan (I KNOW. MYSTERIOUS.) but he always makes an exception for silky, cheesy carbonara, and I’m happy to tell you that he gave this lemony version two Southern thumbs up.

These perfectly sized cottage hand pies are the love child of cottage pie (which is shepherd’s pie made with beef instead of lamb) and a tender flaky biscuit. I am not shy about saying the biscuits are the kind that come from the refrigerated tube in the supermarket, making this fun supper totally doable on a busy weeknight. And despite that picture up there, you really don’t need a knife. Or a fork. Or anything other than your appetite and a napkin.

Yes, I know this is my second soup recipe in a row, but whether you are in the mood for Italian wedding soup or this silky, hearty chicken avocado soup, soup is what’s on the menu because it is finally FALL. Fire in the fireplace, leaves crunching under foot, time to get out your favorite sweater season, and there’s no better way to welcome in the delightfully crisp fall weather than with a nice bowl of soup.
This chicken artichoke soup is one of my current faves, because it has all the creaminess of a cream bisque, but with no cream. Nope, the artichokes join forces with a few other veggies and your blender to magically transform into creamy, healthy soup deliciousness. Let’s make it!
Oh, I love and adore this soup. For richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, til death do us part, I love this soup, and true love lasts forever. I first posted this recipe in the very early days of my blog, and except for the pictures and a couple of little tweaks, this recipe HAS in fact lasted forever…or for the past 8 years, anyhow. Packed with veggies, pasta and little baby meatballs, this soup has something for everyone. Ready for some soup happiness? Let’s make it!
