The Kindle version of I'll Have The Soup And Salad is free today on Amazon. It's 122 pages of 26 soup recipes with some of the classic soups that you will enjoy. Usually, these promotions only last a day or two at the most.
The author, Katherine Baldwin says, "Some are fairly quick to make, but some take time. I do not apologize for that. If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right. Plan ahead and make the ones that take longer to prepare on the weekends. Most of these soups freeze beautifully, so it is the "cook once, serve three times" philosophy. You'll thank me for that once you get the hang of it."
Here are some of the soups:
- Chicken Noodle Soup
- Southern Style Vegetable Soup
- Cheddar Cheese and Potato Soup
- Seafood Gumbo
You will also find 12 recipes in the salad section including:
- Basic Vinaigrette Salad Dressing
- Caesar Salad
- Green Garden Salad
- Potato Salad
- Spinach Salad
Ms Baldwin also says:
In addition to the salad recipes, there is a section there called Popular Salad Ingredients that has over 30 items and suggestions of ingredients to add to a basic salad, complete with a nutritional analysis of each ingredient so you can make an informed choice of what to add.
The recipes in this book will have the number of servings, preparation time and total time from start to finish. Your time may vary if you are just starting to learn to cook. There is also a nutritional analysis with each recipe calculated using the USDA database, Version SR-24. A nutritional analysis is very important if you have any diet restrictions or if you are trying to lose weight.
Cooking Tips and Techniques have been included to help new cooks get their bearings in the kitchen. I hope seasoned cooks can pick up a useful tidbit or two also.
I got a copy of the Kindle version of the book. I think I would enjoy making some soups more with her guidance. I've tried a couple of times to make my own soup, thinking "How hard can it be?!"
I found out it's harder than it looks. The last two times I tried it, it was so awful that I had to pour it out.
And for those of you choosing to have chicken over turky for the holidays, there are three wonderful chicken recipes in there including Chicken and Dumplings. I could feel my mouth watering as I gazed at this one....
