We are having the wettest and one of the coldest Octobers on record here in St. Louis. So I’ve been in a soup mood!! To be honest, I’m obsessed with soups like BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup, French Onion Soup and Smoked Sausage and White Bean Soup to name a few. Because there is something so wonderful eating something warm and hearty when it’s cold outside.

I literally crave Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup from Panera all year long and finally decided it was time to make it at home.
