Meet the Cook: A favorite at soup night at our church, this recipe's one my husband concocted after he retired. (We have four children plus two grandchildren and another on the way.) I frequently find it on the table when I get home from work.

My daughter got this recipe from her husband's mother. As in many households, our turkey gets picked over for a few days after the holidays. When the carcass is almost clean, it's time to make soup! This soup is especially good on cold winter nights when it's snowing...which happens a lot where I live!
This is a hearty soup widely served here, especially at the many restaurants specializing in Basque cuisine. It's a nice way to use the abundant vegetables that are available this time of year. Give it a try this harvest season.
"Although we were on a tight budget when I was a youngster, we always had good food," recalls Brenda Risser of Willard, Ohio. "This comforting soup with soft dumplings was one of Mom's mainstays," she adds. At 82¢ a serving, it's still a bargain.

I immigrated to the United States from western Russia in 1998.

So I prepared this recipe from my grandmother, and everyone seemed to like it.—Svetlana Chriscaden, Falconer, New York
You can make the most of even the smallest pieces of leftover meat on your holiday turkey. I simmer the bones to get the rich flavor, then easily remove any meat that remains. I add rice, vegetables and cream soup for a hearty turkey soup that's tasty and economical. —June Sangrey, Manheim, Pennsylvania
When I turned 40, I decided to live a healthier lifestyle, which included cooking healthier for my family. I make this soup every week, and everyone loves it. It’s nutritious, too.
