This actually is a combination of two soup recipes I came across and adapted. I often serve it for Sunday dinner, making enough so there are leftovers for my husband's lunch thermos. He's a bricklayer and regularly works outside during winter. We're the parents of three children—17, 16 and 11.

I often freeze this soup and thaw it for a fast easy meal. Since it's hearty, all I need to add are rolls or bread and a salad. —Ann Heine, Mission Hill, South Dakota

When I needed to come up with a soup for a potluck years ago, this was the result. I adapted a cream of broccoli recipe I'd used often, and put in plenty of vegetables left over after a dinner party. Just this past Lent, I made 3 gallons of my soup for a church function. Several people told me it was the best soup that they'd ever had. The biggest compliment I ever receive, though, came from my 93-year old grandfather. He usually ate as few vegetables as possible—but he asked for a second bowlful! I'm a military wife...my husband's a chaplain's assistant at Fort Hood. We have two young children, 7 and 5.

This rich, creamy chowder is so good you won't believe it starts with canned soup and frozen vegetables. It showcases tender chunks of halibut, but salmon or most any type of whitefish will do. I double the recipe for large gatherings, and guests almost lick the pot clean!—Mary Davis, Palmer, Alaska

I wasn't satisfied with other recipes I came across for clam chowder, so I devised this one. Everyone who's tried it raves about it. The dish is great on a cold day.

I put the elements of two recipes together to come up with this tasty seafood soup. I'm not always able to get fresh shellfish on short notice, so I keep a supply of canned fish and shellfish on hand.

Meet the Cook: One of the nice things about this thick soup is you can make it in an afternoon without too much fuss. I've found that it's good for soccer-practice evenings - with our sons 18, 17 and 9, we have gotten accustomed to many of those! -Mary Dice, Chemainus, British Columbia

My husband's a grain farmer who is definitely a "meat and potatoes" man. He likes soup on a chilly day, though. Served with warm bread, this makes for a quick but hearty noontime meal. Along with our children, 10 and 5, we live 5 miles from town. I wouldn't trade country life for a million bucks!
