We embraced Soup Week with abandon — soup, stew, and gumbo are the best seasonal food we can imagine right now! There was this creamy roasted vegetable soup with herb dumplings, a reader favorite. There was extra-simple chicken noodle, and Cuban black bean. There was a family recipe for chicken-sausage gumbo, and a colorful blend of squash and chard. Oh, and let’s not forget: Baked potato soup loaded with scallions, cheddar, and bacon.

To complement your soupy pleasures, we also addressed bread (moist cornbread baked in a skillet), breakfast (pumpkin muffins with an eggnog cream cheese swirl), and dessert (a peachy yogurt cake, mixed up in just one bowl). And to close things out, how about an old-fashioned elderflower cocktail?
