    As children mom would make us split pea soup and we loved it.  It was fantastic to have on a cold winter day loaded with saltine crackers and a glass of milk.  I remember those days fondly.  When I lived in Europe I missed my American comfort foods which included that soup.  One day when I was going through the grocery store looking at pictures (since I didn’t speak the language) I spied something that looked like split pea soup.  I bought it, made it and was stunned.  It was pea soup, but not like what I grew up with.  It didn’t need the saltines to be tasty!

    When I spoke to my mother-in-law about it she confirmed it was indeed split pea soup and then agreed to show me the recipe that her mom had taught her.  I was intrigued and of course I agreed.  She used things like chicken stock, soy sauce, celery root, onions, bouillon cubes and smoked sausage.  The result, magnificent.  She elevated the soup that I craved to a whole new level.

    I never wrote the recipe down (silly me) so I have modified this as the years have past.  It’s still of my favorite go-to comfort foods in the winter.  It’s a bit of two of my favorite people; my mom and those she learned from and Emilie – a woman who’s love and friendship over the years as meant the world to me

    The beginning of something great!
