Conquering My Culinary Bucket List One Dish at a Time
By Emily Banks Wooten
I've lost count of how many times I’ve told you, Dear Reader, that I love a good homemade soup, that my mind automatically goes to soup when there’s an abundance of a particular ingredient, and that soup is my comfort food. If I’m feeling unsettled or untethered, the thing that appeals to me most and brings me some comfort is a big pot of homemade soup simmering on the stovetop. It also makes me feel like I’m doing something good for my family. Perhaps it evokes childhood memories of the wonderful fragrance of something simmering low and slow as it develops flavor.
