Elena's Curried Corn Chowder

Elena Embrioni, my vital recipe tester and contributor, makes wonderful soups—hearty and full of flavour. Like me, she doesn't typically write her recipes down. This corn chowder started with a soup of hers I love in her Southern Accent cookbook—a Cajun-style soup. After many variations, we added creamed corn and put tomatoes in at the end. The result is a cozy comfort meal in a bowl.

Carrot Soup In a Mug

This is the first soup I remember making. The original recipe came from my mom's friend Lynn Pady. Not only is it delicious, it's quick and easy, the kids like it and I always have the ingredients on hand.
