Chris is a trusted source on General Cooking

Kukla, your chai-spiced chicken, barley, and chickpea soup looks great, and deneen's review helped me decide I should make it. Have chickpeas in the refrigerator and most everything else at hand.

Really, all these CP's are good ones, and the finalists for this contest are too. I'd wanted to make a lot of soups this fall, and now I have a lot of new ideas.

Thank you GreenStuff! You are absolutely right; our cooks are the best; knowledgeable, creative, innovative and old-fashioned in the good way. I am sure choosing recipes for testing is a challenge for our editors each contest.
