  1. This was good and comforting although a little bland for our tastes. I will make this again but with a bit more spice. Updated to say. This gets better with time. I added just a spoonfull of sour cream and cheddar cheese to the bowls and just a pinch of ceyanne pepper. Wonderful.
  2. Nice and warming soup! This was very easy to prepare and well-received at a soup night I took it to. Thank you for sharing!


I have two wonderful kids,6 and 12, my youngest loves to help in the kitchen. His specialties are homemade noodles and macaroni salad. My daughter loves all things macaroni and cheese! <br> In the summers, we spend a lot of time at the lake and on our four-wheelers. The littlest has started T-ball this year, and we are getting a big kick out of watching those little guys play. DD is into basketball and is my biggest helper. <br>I am not a baker. However; I have found many delicious recipes on this site that are challenging my baking abilities. My kids are encouraging me to keep polishing up my baking skills! <br>I love to collect cookbooks! Finding this site was a stroke of luck. Now, I can keep all my favorite recipes in one place, and put the less used books away to make room for new ones! <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket></a> <br><img src=> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br><img src=> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket> <br><img src=><img src=> <br><a href= title=banner3 by *sparkly*, on Flickr><img src= width=500 height=250 alt=banner3 /></a>
