Ah, a new year… A new and fresh start. And it’s naturally that with the start of the new year our thoughts turn to New Year’s resolutions. My resolutions are to eat as healthy as possible, be more active, be good mommy to my daughter and spend more time with my loved ones. Do you have any goals for this year?
Although snow has melted, it’s still chilly in Dublin. And what can be better than a hearty bowl of soup to warm you up? As a first recipe in the new year, I would like to share another of my favourite soup recipes. Enjoy!
Creamy Mushroom Soup

Pour in vegetable broth, bring it to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
