This amazing group of #foodholidaybloggers that celebrate random food holidays with me. Scroll beneath my recipe to see their creations to celebrate National Soup Day. Seriously stunning and mouth watering! 2. Warm soup to keep me from freezing me arse off because HELLO it’s been ridiculously frigid in my neck of the woods. Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow so he better darn be right in predicting an early spring. I’m ready. 3. copycat recipes. They’re my fav. Why? Because you get to have your restaurant favorites right at home and you don’t have to go out!  

Copycat recipes are my jam. I’ve got a whole category dedicated to them in my Recipe Finder so you can have them at your fingertips. Show of hands who loves Olive Garden’s unlimited soup, salad and breadsticks? This girl has been all over that.
