Original Post:

I am working with my great friend and talented illustrator Kendra Shedenhelm from Big Bridge Studios, who is illustrating the book (sample below).

A little background: This is the first book in my series of twelve cookbooks for the home cook, and you don’t have to be an expert to make the recipes inside. Each book features twelve recipes plus some bonus how-to info and helpful tips.

When will the book be published? The book is currently being illustrated and prepared for publication. Since this is the first one, I may be off by a week or two, but the target date is May 1, 2015. Early bird pricing ends prior to publication. Early Birds will be the first customers to receive the book!

What’s inside? The first book is packed with twelve original, tried and true soup recipes from my very own home kitchen collection. I’m sharing these twelve recipes, along with the added bonus of three types of broth or stock.Your book will include the following recipes:

  1. Easy French Onion Soup
  2. Green Chile Tortilla Soup
  3. Cuban Black Bean Soup
  4. Turkey Noodle Soup
  5. Gazpacho with Shrimp & Feta
  6. Chipotle Pumpkin Soup
  7. Hearty Beef & Barley Soup
  8. Scandinavian Split Pea Soup
  9. Crispy Pork Ramen (see graphic above)
  10. Chicken Pho
  11. Shrimp & Corn Chowder
  12. Mediterranean Vegetable Soup

You’ll also get instructions for making vegetable, chicken and beef stocks, which can be used in many of the recipes above. Stocks can be made ahead, and with my suggested spice blends you’ll be able to add layers of flavor to your creations.

Bonus: I’ll include recipes and instructions for rustic homemade croutons and easy seasoned oyster crackers that go with any soup!

Be sure to check out all of the great products that go with the book including hot sauces, spice kits, soup mugs and gift sets!
