( - This time of year, warm and inviting pots of soups, stews, and chili's are often found simmering on the stove. But what to serve with those easy one-pot meals? For a little something extra try serving them with a scrumptious side of bread to soak up the last drop from your bowl. Or for a low-carb option, pair your soup with a hearty salad, chocked full of wintry nutritious ingredients. The perfect complement to your favorite cool weather meal, you will find yourself going back to these easy accompaniments over and over. Also, check out my Soup-erb Supper Pinterest board for some of my favorite satisfying soup recipes, especially great for feeding a Soup-er Bowl party crowd!

Special Salad: A delightful zesty salad, sure to pair perfectly to your favorite hearty soup - or just about any meal!

  • The richer the color of your greens the more phytonutrients and antioxidants you consume!
  • Did you know small little sesame seeds are full of bone-building calcium? Per tablespoon, whole sesame seeds contain about 88 mg of calcium.
  • This wintry, creamy favorite - Potato Soup - will make a delightful soup and salad combo.

Sweet Potato Cornbread: One of Louisiana's finest homegrown ingredients, yams really perk up this cornbread with their natural sweetness.

  • I keep cornbread mix on had at all times to whip up yummy variations - a pantry stocking staple!
  • A delicious, yet healthy side as it is diabetic friendly and even gluten-free when using a gluten-free cornbread mix.
  • Pairs perfectly with most hearty soups, especially the full-flavored Quick Chili.

Stuffed Mozzarella French Bread: Bread with melted cheese hot out of the oven - what's not to love!

  • Dijon mustard is a tangy ingredient that adds loads of flavor with zero fat and calories.
  • Use a pulsing or manual food processor to easily chop onions finely.
  • Soak up the last drop of Southwestern Soup with this bread!

- Check out these easy and oh-so-tasty Super Bowl Spread snacks!

- For all the Bread Lovers! My simple Italian Pull Aparts begin with biscuits, and guests will beg for the recipe and ask to make it over and over!

- I couldn't let this month get away from us without sharing with you my MARDI GRAS King Cake made with crescent rolls and cream cheese - MY FAVORITE!

- And the Strawberry Heart Cake is such a cute VALENTINE'S DAY sweet treat for all ages.
