January has us all looking for food that is good for the body and good for the soul. This blog post began with a simple Facebook post asking folks for their family “go-to” comfort soup.
Over 100 responses and links to their recipes started to arrive. And then friends told friends and we got even more! I read through all the recipes shared, and below you will find the results. Try them and let us know your favorites!
