I am a soup snob. There, I've said it and it is true. I don't like soup out of a can. I never use to even eat soup, unless I made it myself.

Inside the newsletter was a recipe for 9 Can Vegetable Soup with the advertisement: Try this simple … [Read more...] about Saturday’s Soup: 9 Can Vegetable Soup
