  1. i feel bad i dont think the magazine subscription starts until march. Something about gift subscriptions take so much longer to process. it didnt make sense to me. Anyway, soup looks yumm i love soup.

  2. That looks really good.

  3. This looks totally yummy! I can’t wait to try it. I’ve been using a lot of your recipes lately and the sweet potato cottage pie has gone down a treat and is being passed along lots of family members. It’s great to have delicious veggie inspiration 🙂
