Turkey and Mushroom Soup

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is the left-overs. With as much as we cook it’s never a surprise that we can’t eat it all, which is fine by me.  I love a breakfast of cornbread stuffing and turkey before I start putting up my Christmas decorations.  Usually we have so much left over turkey, mom inevitably roasts a 22 pound bird, that we have enough for two or three days.  As much as I love plain roast turkey...

Creamy Mushroom Soup

Cream of Chicken Soup

I always forget how easy soups are to make.     One of my favorite soups is cream of chicken.  For the longest time I would buy the soup from the deli of the grocery store because I quite simply never thought to make it myself.  I am kicking myself about it now because not only is it dead simple, it tastes far better than anything I have purchased.   What I like is that I control the content of the soup, so if I want more carrots or...
