    This is similiar to a recipe that I make. I add coconut milk at the end of cooking and it gives a creamier texture.

    This was so good and really easy to make. I am working my way through your recipes. Grandy Kyps Chicken Soup was great and I have bone broth in the works as I write. Thank you for sharing all of this. It helps my non paleo friends here on Vancouver Island realize that yes I do eat quite well thank you.

    Will try adding coconut milk next time.

    This was awesome and so easy to make! My in-laws are skeptical of our cooking and they loved, it they said it “tasted just like Panera!” The store we went to didn’t have fresh basil but they had a tube of fresh basil puree so I used that.

    This is the best soup I’ve ever made! Seriously. The first time I made it my husband ate the entire pot after I only had 1 bowl. Wow. Delish!

    My husband and and I loved it! Tasted so good!!! Sadly, I only had a plastic blender and it didn’t work well, I suggest using a Glass blender.
