DESCRIPTION

Makin' soup is often an overlooked and undervalued art form. Knowing the essence of building something like a rich chowder can be a great way to create variety in your home cooking, not to mention how helpful it is when trying to use up leftovers!

However, you can't have a soup-makin' session without some amazing side dishes.  That's why I've included demonstrations on how to make delicious salads and sandwiches, too.

  • Wilted Kale BLT Salad
  • Beer Cheddar Soup
  • Sausage & Potato Chowder
  • Chorizo Corn Chowder
