Wild mushroom soup

My love affair with soups began at the ripe old age of well, forever. As far back as I can remember, I’ve been fed soups in some form or the other. Growing up, chicken noodle soup was our standard Friday night dinner, with some warm, crusty bread and a side salad. Holiday season was granny’s…
