    I made this 1 other time before and followed the recipe to a T. It was very good and the proportions are very balanced. This time I made sure to cut the celery and carrot pieces smaller than ...

    This is a staple wintertime recipe. Also, hate to say it, but I've made it both with chicken broth and then with 4 bouillon cubes + 4 cups water. Now I like to go "fresh" when I can, but i ...
