Chicken and Bacon Wild Rice Soup

One thing is pretty clear. My massive sweet tooth has definitely taken over this site. When I started out blogging I had no idea where this journey would take me. Everyone around me could have predicted the outcome since I’m pretty much known for my desserts by our family and friends. I was clearly in denial – not because I don’t like baking and creating sweet treats or being known for them, but because I like cooking just as much. Don’t worry, desserts and sweet delights will continue to take center stage with savory bites here and there, but today I needed to bring you this fabulous soup. Another thing I adore to make, especially during the colder months, is soup. I love soup and can’t think of anything more comforting than a warm bowl of deliciousness with a crusty piece of bread on the side.

Minnesota is known for Wild Rice. Pretty much everyone here has their own version of Wild Rice Soup and it’s a huge favorite in our house as well. It’s hearty, filled with wholesome grains and super creamy (even without the addition of dairy). I added bacon because, well, do I really need an explanation? Everything is better with bacon and that statement holds definitely true for this soup. It’s perfect!
