French Onion Soup

I’m struggling with how to start this post. I just want to repeat “I love french onion soup” over and over, but you still probably won’t understand how much I love it. If I’m at a restaurant that serves french onion soup, I’ll either order it or be depressed until I can go back and order it.

Empanadas

I have a confession for you.  I’ve never actually had an empanada.  It seems like something I’d love, right?  Delicious goodies baked in a pocket of love and bread.  It’s right up my alley!  Somehow, I just never had one.

Miso Soup

As you may have guessed, I’m REALLY picky.  I pretty much assume anything I don’t like must be gross.  Typically, I’m wrong.  The most egregious error I’ve made due to my pickiness was assuming that all soups were gross.
