This recipe used to be on our old blog and when we switched things over it suddenly wasn't there anymore, along with several other recipes. Sorry!
I have never had so many requests for a recipe like I have this one. I have been blown away, and I'm not surprised. It is just THAT good. I love all the flavors it brings and it just feels like fall. I made this last year and I got these super cute bread bowls from our local grocery store, Maceys. Pour the soup in and it looks so festive and cute. This recipe is 'souper' easy and tastes delicious. This would be a perfect meal to take into someone. Know someone that has just had a baby, or just had surgery, just got hurt and needs a great meal? Take this with some rolls and they will be sooo happy! Please let me know if you tried this recipe and what you thought of it!
