    dojemi's Note:

    There's nothing better than a bowl of hot soup on a cold winters day, although, my DH will eat soup during a summers heat wave. I recently found this recipe in our local Sunday newspaper. I've yet to try it but it looks and sounds amazing. Having not made it as yet, it's difficult for me to list the exact prep and cook time, but I would say they're pretty accurate.
