Dad's Medicine Soup from Carly Wheeler


"Growing up, my dad was never the chef of the family, but when my mom, sister, or I were under the weather, he would quickly put on the chef hat! He has one specialty only: his “medicine soup.” Whenever I would have this soup, something about it just instantly made me feel better. I’m now living in Texas while my family lives in Massachusetts, and when I’m sick, all I want is my dad’s soup." - Carly
