It was a goal of mine to learn how to do videos for the blog upon the arrival of 2016. I made a promise to myself that the first post of 2016 would have a helpful video to accompany the recipe.
There’s still A LOT of room for improvement, but it’s a start. I never realized how helpful videos were until I started seeing them pop up everywhere on Facebook the past year. So much to learn, so little time! 🙂
Did I mention how awesome this soup was?! If you know me, you know that I absolutely LOVE mushrooms. However, I prefer them cooked and not raw. This soup is so hearty, comforting and full of chicken, vegetables and of course… MUSHROOMS!
This recipe makes enough for 4 large portions or 6 average portions. Enjoy!
Again, Happy New Year and thanks for being a reader. Happy simmering! 🙂
