One of my favorite things to do on Sunday mornings is get Starbucks with Mike, sit in our cozy living room and read cooking articles for inspiration.  I was looking up Bon Appetit and came across the article, Chicken Soup for the Chilly Soul: 11 Comforting, Warm Recipes.  Warm & comforting?  Yes, please!  We midwesterners need both of those things right now.

There are several soups that look delicious, but this recipe stood out to me since I already had most of the ingredients.  The soup is gorgeous with those hints of dill and is surprisingly light for a comfort soup.  The refreshing taste of lemon definitely brightens it up. 

Soups can be easy to make, but can be a little challenging to shoot.  Luckily, I like a challenge.  This recipe gave me the chance to use my newest prop, a rustic bowl from Anthropologie, and some boards that I recently painted with some leftover sample paint.  It's always fun to see what a new surface color and a new bowl will do to help bring a shoot to life.  #propnerd

Enjoy!
