There’s Something About Soup

There’s Something About Soup

To miss out on warm, homemade soup with some good bread or homemade muffins on colder days, just breaks my heart. The condensed stuff in the red labeled can just doesn’t count. There is something soul-satisfying about a hearty soup, simmering on the stove (or in the crockpot) with the smell of something baked coming out of the oven.

Don’t roll your eyes or sigh wishing you could pull this off. Having a nice pot of soup on the stove (or my appliance of choice, the crockpot) isn’t just a picture from some bygone generation.

It’s happening today all around you by sharp cooks who get it: soup doesn’t need to cost you heavily in the time department. Good soup, no–great soup even, can be made quickly, in just minutes. The neat thing is, everyone will think you slaved over that hot stove all day when in reality, you were doing everything BUT cooking!
