About the Author

Born in Grand Falls, New Brunswick, Jeanelle Mitchell's dream of seeing the world was realized when she became a flight attendant. As she traveled the world, she realized food was a universal language and she began to collect recipes. When she isn't creating new recipes, Jeanelle can be found golfing, kayaking, skiing, gardening, attending art classes or reading.

Homemade soup is always the same: nutritious, satisfying comfort food that is easily prepared, easily digested, economical, and bursting with flavour. There are few things in life as comforting as soup, and it always feels good to ladle soup into a bowl for someone... One thing that amazes me about soup is that it is absolutely brimming with essential vitamins and minerals. Soup is a delicious meal that will make you feel great—eating well is one of the greatest pleasures you can give yourself.

This is one of the best recipe books I've read. The recipes are easy to follow and nutrious. I've made most of the soups and they have all been delicious. Great comfort food for cold winter nights.

Format: Paperback
As someone who has never been very domestic, I find the Kitchen to be a very intimidating place, and I always found the idea of making soup overwhelming. While the people in my family seemed to just throw anything into the pot, they also made it look like magic, creating bowls of amazing warmth and flavor. I picked this book up in a store to take a quick look and I became absorbed in the simplicity of it all. From the cute little drawings of vegetables to the simple instructions, this book made soup seem feasible in my hands. There are no recipes with forty ingredients, I don't have to save a chicken carcass to make broth, and some of the recipes can be made in a snap. Jeanelle Mitchell explains everything well and encourages straying if you get inspired.
I love the Butternut Squash and Apple soup, Italian Zucchini and Rice, and Stracciatella Soup. I have also found myself making adjustments for more flavor (I used Pumpkin instead of Butternut Squash and used the same spice mix used in Pumpkin Pie, it was fantastic), so while the soups are great as written, there's room to experiment. I also find that the recipes are good for those who have problem with heart burn. The recipes are filling, usually full of vegetables and accommodating for spices and other triggers.
The only problem I had with this book is that there's no pictures of what the food is supposed to look like, but after the first couple of successes, this didn't bother me anymore. Besides, there's something kind of freeing about not an example of what it's 'supposed to' look like.

There are a variety of soups in this book, so soup lovers will find many recipes to please their tastes. As well, the presentation of the recipes is very pleasing: the layout, the delicate drawings and the coloured bands that indicate a new chapter.

The soups are healthy and easy to make. I just wish the carb. fat. calorie breakdown was included.
The instructions are clear - a must buy along with Jeanelle's book on salads.

This will become a favorite of yours (or a great gift to give) Feb. 18 2011
By C. B. St Hilaire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Simple and wholesome are the two words I'd use to best describe this lovely national bestseller. You know how you buy a cookbook and often the ingredients are not typical things in your fridge or pantry? Or the steps seem really complicated? Even worse yet, you like only a few of the recipes throughout the entire book? You won't have that experience with this wonderful addition to your kitchen. Some of the lovely recipes you'll find here:
*Bean & Barley
*Butternut Squash & Apple
*Golden Vegetable
*Roasted Celery Root (to die for)
*Chunky Lentil

There is nothing wild or exotic here and I say that lovingly. The only downside for me personally is the section on poultry & meat soups, but some can be amended to accomodate a vegetarian diet. Further, many of the veggie soups can be amended to vegan by swapping out the butter for Earth Balance or olive oil as well. There is even a section on creating your own stock. It quite literally is one of my favorite cookbooks and I wish I found it sooner!

I have purchased a total of four copies of this book now because it makes such a wonderful gift. I put it in a gift basket with a fresh herb (or herb growing kit) and soup crocks.

If you need a good comfort food, this really is a must-have. If you are reading this in the midst of warm weather, don't worry! There is even a section on cold soups. When summer hits, Chilled Strawberry Soup you are mine.

It's ok! Nov. 6 2011
By cap1582 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The best thing about this recipe book is how healthy and reasonable the recipes are. My husband gave this book to me for Christmas, and I decided to try out every single recipe in the book (a la Julie and Julia). About ten months in and I've made in the neighborhood of about 20 soups. Favorites are the Arfican Chicken and Peanut Soup (which is truly a meal in its own right), Broccoli with Cheese soup and Carrot Ginger soup. My husband absolutely loved the Stracciatella, and I've also had some rave reviews of my Curried Cauliflower. However, I do have to report that I've been disappointed with a number of the soups I've made from this book due to plain and simple lack of flavor development. The fact is that most of the recipes call for softening onions, adding the balance of ingredients with stock and letting it boil for a while-- this is even true for the French Onion recipe, which seriously undermined the credibility of the author to me. For most recipes, I end up adding about twice the amount of seasonings called for (and usually some of my own), otherwise I would describe them as pretty bland. All the same, I'll continue to cook through this book, and I have found a few real winners that I will definitely make again and again and again.

Wonderful! Feb. 28 2011
By p.b.lover - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this book on a whim just because I love soup. I got it this weekend, and made the Greek shrimp and orzo soup. It was amazing! In two or three simple steps I created soup that I was so proud of. Like another reviewer mentioned, the recipes in here are straight forward, with ingredients that are readily available and easy to find. I'd recommend this book to anyone who's interested in creating a new, healthy diverse menu...and just loves soup.
Always good to have more soup recipes! Nov. 18 2013

The recipes in this book are deliciously easy to make. My husband and I eat a lot of soup because it's easy to make and is packed full of vegetables. I make one pot on Sunday and we have left overs for lunch in the week. This and the counterpart, For the Love of Salad, are two must haves for any cook. I also like the Moosewood cookbooks. I find that my family eats more vegetables when I mix it up.
A must have for every home! Jan. 2 2012

Love this book! The recipes are so delicious and healthy at the same time. My family is going through the book and making a soup a week. So far, no disappointments. The African Peanut Chicken Soup was awesome, a new favorite in our house.The kids devoured it ! If you like this book, " For the Love of Salad" is also wonderful.It's fun to pair the soups and salads together.
