We will be making this quite a bit when the weather decides to cool down. It surely is a delicious soup.

Soup is a comfort food and extra soothing when accompanied with fond memories. We will be thinking about our lovely spring vacation with you while enjoying this soup. And reminiscing our camping adventure while dining on the Wilhite's famous taco soup! :~D

Ahhh....what warm and cozy thoughts we have of special friends, yummy food, a wonderful fellowship in the Lord.....

Blessings my friend,
Donna K.

Sounds so yummy...I will have to try it. I tried your chicken broth and even linked back to you from my blog (the title was homemade chicken broth) was sooooo good! Thanks for sharing your recipes. Have a fabulous day!

Oh I love the picture you have as your header right pretty! Is it one of your own creations in your home?? Beautiful! :)

My new header on my blog was my son's creation from a picture I found in an old magazine. He's been behind the scenes on my blog, taking pictures and taking care of the technical part of it all.
This picture is similar to what I would love to have in my house some day.

Thanks for your encouragement. I'll be sure to pass it on to Luke.
