Soup is one of my go-to meals and I want it to be one of yours too. A reader friend named Erin e-mailed me and asked what my go-to meals are and I listed soup. But I wanted her to be able to make it as easily as possible. And a printable guide was born. After writing, editing, adding and changing, I have come up with a 5 step guide on how you can go from empty pot to soup in less than an hour.
I hope this helps you be more comfortable in putting together a delicious, hearty soup using what you and yours like best. Homemade soup is very flexible and that is why it's one of my go-tos and I want it to be one of yours as well. So print off this guide and count it as a Christmas present from me to you.
As an essential note, I must let you know that this guide is property of me. I wrote it and I developed it. It is mine and my sister and I worked hard on it. Please do not steal this and call it your own. You are welcome to link to it and you are welcome to print this off. But if I find it the content of this guide on the internet somewhere with some idiot claiming it as their own, I am not going to be too happy. And plus, then I won't want to do the other guides I have simmering in my head. Like a guide for a pasta and cream sauce out of anything. So please, do not abuse this. Use it for personal use only. If you have any questions about this guide or how to use it, please do not hesitate to e-mail me. I really do respond. Ask the people that e-mail me for cooking help. Complete strangers, yet we end up friends by the end of our correspondence. email@example.com
As you read this, I am on my way to Southern California for Christmas. I hope that you and your family enjoy the holidays. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
