    I absolutley love to cook, mostly because I love to eat! Soups are one of my favorites this time of year, I make a fresh pot of something every week. This particular recipe is #1 on the list. I try not to make it too often though because I want to keep it a favorite. But when I do my mouth starts to water just shopping for the ingredients! It’s a very quick and very easy recipe to make and it’s DELICIOUS!!! Even my poor husband (I call him my guinea pig πŸ˜‰ loves it! Thanks ladies! By the way, I’ve given samples and the recipe to friends and they all agree!

    I just made this recipe and made some tweaks in order to feed a larger crowd. I added carrots and potatoes, additional flour, and another can of chicken broth as well as italian seasoning and a pinch of cayenne pepper. It was fabulous!
