We live in North Carolina and I am a foodie. I love researching and changing recipes to fit my own needs and desires. My posts will be the Stephanie way of cooking so you will probably recognize some things and others might leave you saying that isn't for me but thanks anyway. This will allow me to share something I truly love, food and preparing it in such a way that my family and friends can feel how much I care for them.

Have you been to Olive Garden and eaten Zuppa Toscana? Yes, then you know how amazing that soup is. This is my attempt. I made up this recipe a few years ago and it isn't exactly the same, but I like it and wanted to share. We are heading into Autumn here in New York. Yes, we have seasons, unlike my home town in California. The weather is cooling down and I am happy to be making soups in response to the cold. For my family and friends in California, not enjoying the cool weather yet, maybe this soup can still give you some comfort.
Comfort in a bowl. Try it and you will see.
1 lb. Breakfast Sausage
4 cloves Garlic
5 thin skinned Potaoes (Eastern or Red potatoes)
6 cups Vegetable Broth (Chicken Broth can also be substituted)
1 bunch Kale
1 1/2 cups Heavy Whipping Cream
Clean potatoes and kale and cut into 1/2 inch pieces.
Brown sausage in a stock pot over medium heat.
Pour broth into pot, add potatoes and garlic and cover and bring to boil and cook
until the potatoes are tender.
Add kale after potatoes are tender. Cook for another 3 minutes.
