Here's my go-to recipe for family and friends' get-togethers. One time, my niece devoured three bowls of it and we had to stop her from a fourth so others could have one last spoonful! —Sharon Verea, Thomasville, Georgia
In the mood for soup? There's no need to open a can when it's so easy to simmer up a bowl of this soup. I first has this at a favorite restaurant. When it was removed from the menu, I duplicate it at home using herbs from my garden.Kay Harris, Armarillo, Texas
Simmering up a big pot of this soup is one of my favorite holiday traditions. This is a variation on a recipe my mom made while I was growing up. My husband and children can't get enough of the tender dumplings.
This soup's unique flavor comes from the wonderful combination of allspice, okra, tomatoes, corn, pepper and cloves. Every serving is loaded with nutrition and color.Clara Coulston, Washington Court House, Ohio
I created the recipe through trial and error. I make it with vegetable broth, but feel free to use chicken broth if you prefer. It is a quick fix with frozen pasta and canned beans, it's sure to heat up the chilliest of winter nights.Linda Kees, Boise, Idaho
