I must tell you, at this time of year, soup just sings to my soul. My original post on Books on Soup ended up being entirely too long because I wrote at least some of my thoughts and sometimes a full review after I read each book. There is no way you’d want to sit down and read 4000 words on soup books in one sitting. I know I wouldn’t.
But I’m kind of obsessed with soup right now! So I thought a Soup Week, with one post per book would be better. I’m going to start you off with a short one.
300 Sensational Soups
by Carla Snyder & Meredith Deeds (cookbook) – on the fence
Remember back when I checked this book out from the library and I was so overwhelmed that I decided to just get my own copy? Well, I did snag a copy from either PaperbackSwap.com or Thriftbooks.com (<– referral links!). We have several recipes flagged, but I’ve only made all of one! It was a Garlic Soup with Aioli and it was not a success. It was such a weird texture and didn’t really have that much garlic. That being said, this book of soups was highly recommended by a blogger who makes one of my favorite lasagna soups. And it is chock full with all different kinds of soups from creamy, to broth-based to all sorts of different ethnic soups that I have never even dreamed exist. The Cheddar, Beer and Kielbasa Soup remains on our wishlist. But we’re waiting until we pick up some kielbasa up from the Polish Wisconsin town where I grew up.
In the meantime, here are few other posts I’ve done on soups:
- Lemony Pesto Chicken Soup
- Five Favorite Soups for Fall
- The First Recipe from the Best Cookbook You’ve Never Read (hint: it’s a soup)
- 5 Things I Cooked This Week (includes two soups)
