What makes these soups so wunderbar? They bring back such wonderful memories of my Mutti's kitchen. So, of course, I had to write my own soup e-cookbook to share with my grandchildren. I know you'll LOVE it, too! There are 84 full-color pages filled with step-by-step instructions and hints. Take a quick peek ...

Sharing these soup recipes from my Mutti and Oma to my own young grandchildren ... that's such a delicious way to pass on our German heritage :)

A bit of this and a bit of that ...

  • Add a swirl of whipping cream (heavy cream) to each bowl.
  • Cooking mushrooms this way by chopping them finely and simmering them is great for those who don't like the 'mushroom feel' in their mouth, but like the flavour.
  • Vegetarian? Use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.
  • Use a good quality chicken stock or, if you go vegetarian, use a vegetable stock. Don't have that available, then use water and bouillon cubes. Works great as well.
