  1. We loved this soup. It's absolutely delicious. Combine that with simple to prepare and it's a definite winner in my house.<br/>Made for Best of 2010 Cookbook tag.
  2. This was delicious and the perfect meal for a snowy Saturday morning. Once the chopping was done it cooked quickly. It was a wonderful veggie chowder and would be equally good with leftover chicken or ham added. We'll be making this one again. Another great recipe Bobbie!!


This is a picture of me with my oldest grandson, DJ and was taken this past summer when we went on a cruise and land tour of Alaska. I am retired after working for the same company for 25 years. My husband is a retired military officer. After the military he started working for Lockheed and is now retired from there as well. We live in San Jose, CA and have lived in the same house for over 33 years. We have two grown children and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I love to try new recipes and jazz up old ones. Taste of Home and Southern Living are my favorite recipe magazines(I enjoy reading a little bit about the people who submit the recipes). Recipe Zaar is just an incredible site. I've made many new friends since joining. I have tons of cookbooks -- but now when I need a new recipe that I know I can count on, I come here! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src="">
