  1. This has turned out a lot better than I expected. I thought it was going to be too plain and instead I ended up having two big servings of it and basically licked the bowl! Let me tell you, it was much much better than my last attempt at carrot soup. Thank you!
  2. Simple, easy and tasty. Perfect soup for a quick meal. Great for me at the moment with my jaw wired between surgeries
  3. What a VERY TASTY soup! I made it for dinner tonight and enjoyed it very much! Its so easy peasy to make, with no fuss at all and tastes very yummy. The garlic makes a wonderful addition to the carrots sweetness and the amount used was perfect. I used a medium sized onion and threw in two chopped up spring onions, which needed to be used up. Did not have any parsley, so just served the soup without garnish and I dont think anyone missed it. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful warming soup recipe with us, Sara!

I'm married, I have 2 kids (both boys), and I live in Australia. I have loved cooking for as long as I can remember, and have become completely addicted to browsing through Zaar looking for new recipes! I have a small animal shelter for rabbits and guinea pigs, and spend most of my time looking after kids or critters!. My favourite cookbooks are The Essential Pasta Cookbook, The Central Cookery Book, Flo Bjielkie-Peterson's Country Cookbook, and Greek Cooking (I bought that one in Greece, and it's FANTASTIC). At the minute, we are getting ready to move, which is forcing me to sort through my recipe cabinet. I have been trying out all those recipes that are scribbled on pieces of paper, or torn from magazines, so I can decide ifthey are keepers or not. So far I've found a lot of keepers, and will work at posting them on here. I'm passionate about a lot of things, mainly my kids, animals, and cooking. I won't even start on my peeves, we'll be here all night! lol
