My creamy vegetable soup tastes like what you can get at a restaurant, especially when it's served in a bread bowl. You can find more of my recipes on my blog, yammiesnoshery.com. —Rachel Heidenreich, Marshall, Michigan
When I needed to come up with a soup for a potluck years ago, this was the result. I adapted a cream of broccoli recipe I'd used often, and put in plenty of vegetables left over after a dinner party.
Just this past Lent, I made 3 gallons of my soup for a church function. Several people told me it was the best soup that they'd ever had. The biggest compliment I ever receive, though, came from my 93-year old grandfather. He usually ate as few vegetables as possible—but he asked for a second bowlful!
I'm a military wife...my husband's a chaplain's assistant at Fort Hood. We have two young children, 7 and 5.
My husband's a grain farmer who is definitely a "meat and potatoes" man. He likes soup on a chilly day, though. Served with warm bread, this makes for a quick but hearty noontime meal.
Along with our children, 10 and 5, we live 5 miles from town. I wouldn't trade country life for a million bucks!
As the oldest of eight girls growing up on the farm, I began cooking at an early age! This soup—which I first had at my sister's house—brings me compliments no matter where I serve it. —Elienore Myhre, Balaton, Minnesota
Served hot, this beautiful tangy soup helps beat the winter "blahs". On a sunny summer day, it's refreshing cold. I have fun serving it because people are so intrigued with the idea of a fruit soup. Even doubters scrape their bowls clean.

The big fresh-mushroom flavor of this soup sets it apart from other recipes I've tried. After preparing this family favorite for guests, I frequently get recipe requests.
