Mary Ann's Venus Demilo Soup

Mary Ann Mann


The original recipe for this hearty soup was given to me by my friend Shawn Quinn and over the years it has evolved into this recipe which is a favorite in cool weather. Served with bread and a salad it will warm even the coldest days and satisfy even the heartiest appetites.
