Life on a farm can get hectic—along with my husband's four brothers, we custom-feed 5,000 head of cattle and grow 5,000 acres of crops. So I often freeze this soup and thaw it for a fast easy meal. Since It's hearty, all I need to add are rolls or bread and a salad. We're expecting an addition to the family spring, who'll join our 19-year-old, 4-year-old and 2-year-old.

Meet the Cook: Scottish settlers first came to this area over 150 years ago. My mother herself was Scottish, and - as with most of my favorite recipes - she passed this on to me. I make a triple batch of it each year at Christmas, to enjoy and as gifts. When I entered Scottish Shortbread at our local fair, it won a red ribbon. As long as we have been married - and that's 54 years - my husband and I have lived on a farm. We are retired, and we have five grown children. -Rose Mabee, Selkirk, Manitoba
