Philly Cheese Steak Soup

My first recipe for What the Forks for Dinner? was French Onion Soup. Philly Cheese Steak Soup is a take from that first recipe.

PHILLY CHEESE STEAK SOUP 1When I posted that first recipe, I was in seventh heaven. It was the start of a dual dream for Tim and I. My love of cooking, his love of photography, and wanting to share those loves with each other and with others.

Almost four years later, we are still loving the process of sharing our loves with each other, and you. We look back and see how far we have come. 335 recipes, not including this one, and growing from just a few page views a day, to now averaging over 600 page views a day. We have even had a few days over 1000!! Continue reading “Philly Cheese Steak Soup”

I could top it off with the mixed green after it was grilled. But it need a little something more so a Balsamic Drizzle was just the ticket.
