Kathie Carr


Still good and easy but... Can you believe this recipe for using canned soups in recipes dates to 1916? Amazing. And we still use them today.

The basic idea is to make a sauce or gravy from the soup, add leftover cooked meats and vegetables, and serve this over rice, noodles, potatoes, or toast.
