BackstoryThis recipe is one that my mother would make. This is my absolute favorite soup to make. It reminds me of her and how much she loved it. She passed last year, so every time I make this I think of her and how much she enjoyed it. It is perfect on a cold night and to share with friends. I usually double this recipe and sometimes, if need be, I will triple it. It is a favorite in my home. It is super simple to make and very delicious.
