    Sounds wonderful- thanks for linking up to my 10 Days of Warm Winter Soups series so I can give this soup a try! I really like the “Save It” and “Print” feature that you offer on your recipe. Do you use a plug-in for that? WordPress is soooo new to me- I’m still finding my way around. 🙂

    1. Hi Tonya,
      Thank you for hosting the soup link-up! I pinned it for future reference. 🙂
      I use the Ziplist Recipe Plugin, and I would definitely recommend it! I believe it can be downloaded directly from the plugins tab on your dashboard. I am still working on making it look the way I want it, but there are plenty of options. Hope that is helpful!
