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

About the Author
Lorraine Wallace had two great passions growing up - riding horses and cooking. She became an expert in both. Moving to Middleburg, Virginia in the 1980s, she became a competitor on the amateur showjumping circuit and won awards on her horse, Strait Man. At the same time, she started her own extensive garden - growing vegetables, herbs, and flowers. She developed an appreciation for organic ingredients and a deep love for cooking.

The book includes soup recipes by season with lots of colorful photos. All the recipes look delicious and nourishing. The only one I've tried so far is the hearty lentil soup which was great and I look forward to trying many more. Other offerings include Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup, Senate Bean Soup, Hot and Sour Soup, Mexican Albondigas, Tortellini Meatball Soup, Greek Lemon Soup, Frogmore Stew and several kinds of chili, to name just a few. Lorraine also includes her recipes for basic stocks. Most of the recipes seem easy to make and include commonly found ingredients or those that could be substituted (canned or frozen clams instead of fresh, for example, for the clam chowder recipe).
I did enjoy this cookbook and also liked that the author included some family photos and lets the reader catch a glimpse of the Wallace's family life.
I was given a copy of this book for review by the publisher but the opinion is mine alone and wasn't solicited. If I didn't like the book I would say so.
I like to make big vats and store in freezer bags - great for meals or snacks throughout the winter - handy, delicious and nutritious!
