In The Beginning

OK, so this is how I came to start a blog. My family has been going through some situations lately, some with specific dietary requirements (mostly pureed food) and some that just required food brought in. This all sent me running to the kitchen to nuture my loved ones in the way I do best. And the food I found I love to cook most is....soup! Big surprise there since I decided to name my blog soup kitchen.

Well, this whole soup thing began to grow until one of my daughters and I began discussing the possibility of opening a small soup cafe. But as I ponder the amount of work that would go into that type of endeavor, I'm not sure if, at my age, I am up to it. But I so want to share my love of soup that this seems a natural outlet.

So, through the coming days, weeks, months, years, eternity...I am going to share soup recipes. Some old, some new, some borrowed, some blue (ok, maybe not blue, but you get the idea). And what I hope to get from readers is input. I would love for you to make these soups and let me know what you think...honestly. If it needs something let me know. If you love it let me know. If you absolutely hate it don't tell me....not really...let me know. Who knows, someday I may open a soup cafe, or publish a cookbook, or maybe just keep making soup. Whatever it is I end up doing, you can say you helped. And learn the joy of soup along the way.

Fab recipe. I can't wait to try it. Soups are wonderful for those winter months, especially with homemade bread, which is sort of my thing. Fun blog. Can't wait to see what you'll post next.
