This recipe turned out amazing! I used whole wheat flour because it s what I had. I used butter in place of the shortening because I didn t have shortening. I only managed to get about 12 1/2 cups of flour in maybe because of the type of flour I don t know. But it was so stinkin tasty!!! Will definitely be making this more! Read More

A fabulous base recipe! Followed recipe exactly as written the first time we made it and we all found it good but could use a little more flavor. The second time I made it I added 1/2 tsp thyme 1 bay leaf and 1 sprig of rosemary...just a little added enough flavor to make this soup delicious! Read More
