Winter is coming. Oh no, wait, actually, it's already here. Although the friendly folks further up north (read: Canada) will probably insist that people down here in New York really don't have anything to worry about when it comes to winter weather, when it's really coming down outside, snow is snow, wind is wind, and soup is a most welcoming prospect.

OK, so, sure, it may be tempting to pop open a can of soup and stick it in the microwave, but that's probably not very resolution friendly. Besides, most canned soups are total salt bombs and full of mushy "vegetables," flaccid noodles, and questionable pieces of "meat." Disappointing every time.

So instead, here are nine fantastic winter soup recipes that are sure to set things right after a romp through the powdery gray (sadly, yes, it always turns gray) stuff on the way home. Highlights include a lovely slow cooker split pea soup that uses leftover ham, and Seamus Mullen's winter market soup recipe, a real treat that's well worth the effort. But with such a fantastic collection of recipes, it's pretty hard to go wrong with any of them.
