Meet the Cook: This recipe's one I had to learn to marry into my husband's family! It is the traditional Hinz Christmas Eve meal, served before going to church. My father was a pastor who was always too keyed up from preaching to enjoy a big Sunday dinner. So I learned to make soup early on. Now, my husband is pastor to two rural churches. Our three children are 17, 15 and 13. -Rachel Hinz, St. James, Minnesota

"I enjoyed this recipe, I did omit the rice, I aded more noodles and dumplings. The next time I make this I will not use thyme in the dumplings, I just don't prefer the taste of time, I may try sage or rosemary. It was a good and comforting soup!"
