If Old Man Winter were a real person, we’d have to defriend and unfollow him. Dude needs to chill with the snow and ice.
His one redeeming quality: Giving us an excuse to eat tomato soup and grilled cheese all the time (got to get warm somehow).
To help us retain body heat, we asked home chef Sarah Simmons for her best tomato soup recipe. Instead, she gave us five — all starting with the same mirepoix base, and ranging from a Thai coconut version (demo’ed in the video above) to a spicy, fire-roasted bisque. Visit our gallery for pictures, full recipes, and more videos.
The recipes are so easy and good we’re almost sad to think about winter ending. Almost.

Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
When in Rome opens this Friday. Check local listings for showtimes.
