Alison Kent won an ARC of the Lost Recipe for Happiness, and she made one of the dishes, a soup that is one of my absolute favorites in all the world. I go to a restaurant on the westside of Colorado Springs just to eat this particular soup. It took me ages to get the recipe right (since, for some reason, they don’t just give it away to anyone who asks!), but the version in the book is a winner. Check out the photos Alison posted. There is also a review of the book here.
The soup is made with beef, bacon, cabbage, peppers and lime or lemon juice, among other things. Delicious for a winter day.
I will have some food-related contests going on very soon, but at the moment, it seems you cannot post responses to my site at barbaraoneal.com and that kills the whole point, doesn’t it?
