“Find Warming Energy” with my Mama Soup Recipe and Jewish Food Experience Article

I’m happy to be coming up for air at the end of an entire month of holidays! In the meantime, even with Succot over, it’s never too late to enjoy a warm, healthy and hearty bowl of soup.

With the start of the secular holiday season upon us, now is a great time to read my Jewish Food Experience article about healthy eating during the holidays. Be sure to also click on the accompanying Mama Soup recipe. Thanks, Mom!
