french onion soup

french onion soup ~ one of mom's favoritesI remember as a kid I was not a fan of soups; they seemed kinda boring to me.

In “walked” cheese.

Cheese transformed everything for me. It had magical superhero powers that could turn sad days sunny. And frowns upside down. The best part? It still does!

I only remember eating mom’s french onion soup once. And once is all it took to tickle the tummy… and the heart.

This soup is a delicious “pick-you-up” during rainy days and chilly nights. It’s easy to make and even easier to eat! Why don’t you share a bowl with a friend or two?

Foodie Tip ~

  If you’re in a pinch, you can use croutons instead of making bread the good old fashioned way. It won’t be as delicious, but you’ll still take your taste buds on a flavor adventure.
