Recommended by Chef Glenn

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety

Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"

Joy B: Our family always used white vinegar instead of lemon juice, and added paprika ... but I think I'd like this version better!   


Alice D: Every time I make these I always have to make 3 times as much! Our friends always want some so it never goes to waste.


Gaby S: This is in my oven right NOW!!! Can't wait to try it!


Sunetra CDas sieht aber lecker aus.


Debbie M: These will certainly be a hit. My 89 year old mother-in- law will love them.
