Wow! I love this book. I love soups. I can eat them all year long. There are some very flavorful soups in here. I leave out any type of salt spice, and the soups come out great anyway. This along with her bread book, you cannot fail to make a nice, hearty, winter meal. Recommended.

I only briefly looked through. Let the man who runs the cafe downstairs borrow & I have not gotten it back yet. I guess he likes the recipes. We will see if any of them show up on his menu.
Soup for every season and every family member
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 19 years ago
Marilyn Moore writes a good cookbook - and this one lives up to expectations. As the previous reviewer said, even the novice soup maker/cook will beable to follow the recipies. This is an 'everyday cookbook' - recipies simple enough (that taste good) that you could use it weekly - with enough variation that you could easily feed a vegetarian - or find recipies to cut down on your own family's meat consumption. (And, of course, chili recipies if you want to keep it in). And, by 'everyday', I mean that recipies could easily be used for special ocasions and guests. The Corn Chowder with fresh corn... *sigh* - heaven in a bowl.Also included are a handful of good, simple recipies to serve alongside the soup.
Great Soups Made Easy
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 21 years ago
The Wooden Spoon cookbook offers a wide range of recipes for soups and stews. The recipes are easy to follow and, unlike many specialty cookbooks, rely on simple, everyday ingedients that most basic kitchens will have on hand or at least that can be obtained from any corner grocery store. Many novice cooks fear that making soup will be a long, involved process. The Wooden Spoon cookbook should put that fear to rest. The book contains several useful features, especially helpful for the those new to the soup making process, but also as a refresher for the veteran, including a glossary of terms and suggestions for basic ingredients to keep on hand for when the spirit moves one to make soup or a stew.The occasional anecdote or interjected comment about a recipe or its origins adds to the cookbook's value, making it both interesting reading and a great addition to the kitchen bookshelf.
