I’ve always been a soup fan. Growing up in NH with its seemingly endless cold winters, soup is such comfort food. I am making my third batch of it today because it’s so delicious! Even my barley-disliking husband loves this soup. I make double batches because I give some to my widowed neighbor and for my elderly mother-in-law. Yes!! It’s that good!!



  1. Brown beef in non-stick fry pan until browned, stirring frequently.
  2. Remove beef from pan and place in crockpot, Add carrot, celery, onion, and mushrooms, beef base, water, garlic and bay leaf.
