Advance Praise for Mr. Sunday's Soups
"Lorraine has brought our family together for so many wonderful meals. There have been countless times the Wallaces have sat around the table enjoying one of her warm homemade soups, laughing, and arguing, and creating new memories. But one thing we all agree on is—we love her soup."
"In this fast-paced world, there is one food that slows us down and is a nourishing, complete meal. Soup is a meal, and Mr. Sunday's Soups by Lorraine Wallace is the ultimate guide to make us stop and smell the soup simmering on the stove."
—Chef Art Smith, bestselling author
"As the fortunate beneficiary of Lorraine's splendid skill with soups, I can attest her concoctions are smashing. Read, emulate, and enjoy them!"
—Karl Rove, former deputy chief of staff and senior advisor to President George W. Bush
"My mother made soup of one kind or another every Monday night, as did most of the families in my old Italian neighborhood in East Harlem, New York City. I can't imagine my life without soup, nor would I want to. What a wonderful way to grow up! Thank you, Lorraine, for creating a book people will treasure."
—Frank Pelligrino, owner of New York City's Rao's and author of Rao's Cookbook

As with any recipe, one should review the ingredients and techniques first. By no means are my changes intended to 'correct' the recipes, but rather to add my own flair and tastes to enhance what my family enjoys, like extra carrots!
For example, the Tortellini Meatball Soup was fabulous, though I made small changes such as replacing half the sausage with hamburger, and may consider cooking the meatballs first before adding them to the soup, instead of adding them raw, as called for in the recipe. Certainly, while they cook to proper temperature, they are a bit soft, and we simply prefer our meatballs a little more firm. Otherwise, this recipe is definitely a keeper, makes an attractive meal, and is well worthy of serving to company. Made it, ate it, loved it! Don't skimp, use the ingredients that are called for in the recipe.
Next up, the Chicken Garlic Straciatella. Excellent. I almost look forward to someone telling me that they don't feel well, just so I can present a batch of this soup. Don't fret - twenty garlic cloves is not too much. The only changes I made were to skip using the blender, and just crush the garlic instead of slicing it, prior to beginning the second step of the soup. One pound of spinach seemed a bit much, so I used less, half that amount would be just fine. Next time, I will add more carrots, and also a scoop of cooked seashell pasta. If you are unable to locate Pecorino cheese, Parmesan is a good replacement. Made it, ate it, loved it.
Next up - French Onion Soup, and then Beef Barley.
I can already tell, this cookbook will be dog-eared and tattered in no time. Thank you, Lorraine.
Soups galore. Recipes categorized for Fall, Winter,Spring,Summer, Friends and Family, Game Day favorites and even "Strong Families Start with Good Bones" -- a chapter on stocks:chicken broth, vegetable broth, light fish broth, rich beef broth.
Some Wallace family photos and biographical info is sprinkled among the recipes. Like spices and seasonings, these historical family tidbits enhance the book. "Mr. Sunday's Soups" is both practical, fun and easy to read. Kudos to the author/cook, Mrs Lorraine Wallace.
Highly recommended for anyone interested in good cooking and good food.
