Soup Recipes

What are your favorite soups to make- preferably hot ones (I have had cold toes for the past week due these MN temperatures)

Tonight we are having Chicken Dumpling- got the chicken on sale and had it for dinner last night and cooked the broth. So now to make the Dumplings! I am using the Mark Bittman recipe:

6 Cups Chicken stock
4 T. softened butter
2 eggs
1/2 c flour
1/4 c minced parsley leaves (I will substitute something)
1/4 c minced onion
salt and fresh ground pepper

Basically you beat the egg into butter you have creamed with a fork, then add the rest. Then the recipe says to add heated stock until batter is just soft. Then to make the dumplings you just drop them in the hot stock and cook about 10 minutes. Yummm... my grandmother used to make wonderful chicken dumpling soup.

Anyone else have a tasty recipe to share? I just bought some split peas so will be making ham and split pea soup soon with leftover frozen ham, but for that one, I basically just throw things in the crockpot.
