I have always been a soup girl! Soups have a way to comfort and warm me up! They are always associated with some pleasant childhood memories. The soups my mother made me to get rid of a cold,the ones she made because I was sad ,the ones she made because… well,she thought I’d like some!

I have a binder stuffed with ways to get creative with them. Over the years I have assembled so many soups ideas,they should probably have a blog dedicated just to them!lentils
