Winter has taken hold of us here in Chelmsford, MA, bringing with it a change in what’s for dinner. That’s right, instead of firing up the grill for burgers and brats, we’re in our apartment kitchen pulling out our crockpots and stock pots for soups and stews. Today, the Kensington at Chelmsford Blog has some recipes that will warm you all month — which happens to be National Soup Month! So try one, or all, of these recipes this month.
