For a while there, it felt like I was always on the move. I'm happiest when I'm traveling, but coming home means that I really get to slow down and take my time in the kitchen. I've been all about creating warm, feel-good meals.
One of my favorite things that I've tried lately is this viral TikTok tomato soup. It's the perfect pick-me-up on these days where it feels like winter just won't end! I'm so ready for Spring weather and sunshine to come back to Ohio. But if I can't have sunshine, a warm bowl of soup will have to do!
My boyfriend begs me to make him this soup and sandwich combo! You’re gonna love it! 😘😘😘

🍅 8 large tomatoes, cut into quarters

🔥 bake at 425 for 25 minutes, broil a few minutes at the end to make veggies extra toasty
🍅 pour all roasted ingredients into a soup pot. Add 2 cups vegetable broth and 1 cup heavy cream.
🤤 blend with a hand blender until all ingredients are smooth. Simmer on medium low heat until you’re ready to serve
