Format: Paperback
I was excited about this cookbook since I make soup once a week. However, of the three recipes I've tried, two had faulty instructions. Apparently the recipes were compiled as a benefit for a not-for-profit, and not tested. For example, the porcini and chicken chowder directs you to soak the porcini mushrooms and "set aside", and then they are never put into the soup. I tried to contact the publisher to get the complete, correct recipe, and was told that my request would be forwarded to the team that worked on the book, but a month later I still don't have the correct recipe. Another recipe directed you to start a step 15 minutes before the recipe was to be done, but then required 30 minutes of cooking. So was the idea to have the stew overcooked by 15 minutes? One recipe of the three I tried was complete and correct, and turned out fine. I won't be trying any more!

This book has been a lifesaver this winter! The recipes are clear and easy-to-follow, but most of all they yield the most scrumptious soups! I've even ventured away from the store-bought stocks to make my own from scratch. Want to know a secret? The recipes are so simple that I pretend I have my own show on the Food Network and that I'm teaching everyone out there in TVLand how to make "my" famous soups. Last week I brought a pot of the albondigas soup to a pot luck last week and, well, I have to admit that the reviews were so wonderful that I fibbed and told them I made it up, with a little help from my 80 year old Mexican grandmother. Well, I ain't from that part of the world, and the recipe? It's actually Traci Des Jardin's. But that's our little secret...

I just finished a bowl of Charlie Trotter's "Lentil & Bacon" soup from the new "Soup's On" cookbook. I found the recipe easy to follow, quick to prepare and delicious to eat. This has become my new favorite cookbook. Living in the cold and snowy Northeast corridor, this book is the one I will rely on when I want something nourishing and comforting on a cold evening. I look forward to trying all of the recipes in this wonderful book.

To me, cooking often involves reheating dinners from the prepared foods section at Whole Foods. I can make a stellar tortellini Alfredo, but that's just about it. I have to say, though, that I have made great friends with this book during the cold, rainy season.... when all I want to do is whip up something easy, warm and satisfying, Soup's On is my go-to. So far, I have found the recipes to be approachable and easy to follow, and each one is really terrific. Alice Waters' carrot soup is wonderful--a friend of mine even likes to puree it for her baby daughter. Georgeanne Brennan's mache and parmesan is light and lovely as a starter, and it is a total snap to make. I've also long been a fan of albondigas, and Traci Des Jardin's recipe is terrific. I bought half a dozen of these books to give as Christmas gifts... I've only heard rave reviews!
