Eleanor Chilson of Plantation, Florida enjoys her memories of this tasty soup almost as much as making it. “My mom made it for us on chilly autumn or winter nights,” she recalls.

I came up with this recipe after I sampled a similar dish when my husband and I went out to dinner to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Now I make it at home often. When I'm not re-creating recipes, I'm busy quilting, crafting and keeping up with our four children and five grandkids.
