Minestrone Soup & Cornbread Recipe

I have two delicious recipes for you today.  The soup will be added to my winter soup rotation.  It is probably the best minestrone soup I've ever had.  I love all the veggies in it and couldn't get enough!  The cornbread recipe is super easy and turned out delicious.  Both of the recipes can be found from here.

I love Minestrone soup, but have never made it. Crock pot soup sounds just about right for a new mama this winter. :) Thanks for sharing!
