Cooking, It’s the reason for the season! I spend endless hours cooking, and no matter how much I say I am not going to cook, during the holidays I end up doing quite the contrary. When I cook, I try to improve upon meals that I have dined on in restaurants, and at homes of friends or family. Today’s particular recipe brings a hearty, warm food bowled up with a leftover in order to create a sumptuous dish perfect for comfort-food like eating during the week! The holidays were all about ham, and I tossed a few ham bones in the freezer to use later rather than wasting as they are the perfect addition to soup. It takes a very crafty person to use up all the ham meat down to the ham bone and in fact, I have a recipe that will help you do it all! Last week, I worked with a meaty ham bone that cried out for a recipe and today I present you with How to Make Cream of Ham Soup, as I lavishly live my food adventures out loud and share them with you.
