For years, I maintained a 3 x 5 index card recipe box with my favorite recipes, indexed and hand written. Those days are long gone, but as I comb through that box of old favorites, I'm posting the best ones here. This is a hearty, comfort food soup which, when properly garnished and presented, will get you rave reviews! Try it...you'll like it. Don't be scared off by the lengthy directions: I make it a point to make my directions very clear and specific...they're lengthy but simple and easily understood.
