Welcome to our Weekend Cook and Tell where each Wednesday we turn the pages of the food sections of various national newspapers in search of inspiration for a weekend cooking project. We hope you'll cook along with us and share your experiences, recipes, and photos here.
One of the best things about winter is the change in cuisine and the emphasis on foods that will warm your belly on a cold, blustery day. Be it the beginning of using your turkey stock from Thanksgiving, tomato soup, or bean soups, there seem to be no end to taking our meals (happily) in liquid form.
David Tanis, of The New York Times, found an alternative when the onset of cold-weather had him considering a trip to Southeast Asia: a Vietnamese-inspired soup. He considered this a method to both turn the temperature and heat up in one bite. Strapped for time, a bright fish soup with lemongrass and chile, allowed him to thaw visiting guests in no time at all. When the chill of the changing season hits you, what soups do you make to warm your belly?
Share your favorite soups on Photograzing (make sure to include "Weekend Cook and Tell" in your submission title) and tell us about your recipes here! If you'd like to blog the experience, please leave a link in the comments below. You can now also pin your creation on your Pinterest board as well.

We'll post a round-up of your ideas, recipes, and experiences the following Wednesday, December 5th.
