Now this soup is something really special.

I’ve made it many times and finally made it irresistible.

It’s lemony without being overly lemony.

It’s familiar like chicken soup, but oh so much more.

It is one of my go-to soups and I think you’re going to LOVE it.

This soup is so delicious, perfect anytime.

I did hear it snowed again in the East Coast and although I miss the pretty white scenery, I wouldn’t give up the 88 degree day we had today here in Southern California for a shovel!

  1. I was going to sign up for your latest recipes but your ad says “stay up to date will my latest recipes”. I guess I’m really disheartened that people won’t even take the time to proof-read what they put out. I see stuff like this so often. I guess I’m old-fashioned but it really is a turn-off.

    1. Sign up for emails if you’d like. But here on my website, you may find errors in spelling or grammar. I try hard to avoid them, but I’m not perfect. Just someone who loves food, creates delicious recipes, and shares them on the internet at no cost to the reader. I purchase all the food, and make the recipes until they are great so anyone making the recipes will not struggle with a recipe that does not work out. I then take the photos, write the recipe and some needed info or background story on the recipe or food used, publish each recipe and maintain the website so that it is here for ease of finding the recipe again and again. If you’re expecting perfection, then my recipe blog is probably not going to be to your liking. I keep it real, real food, real life, and real mistakes, after all I’m just one person doing all the work for some to simply be annoyed by a simple error! And an error that once is pointed out, I am able to quickly fix.
