I have a friend who asked me to recommend a book of soup recipes for her mom. (She knows I have a ton of cookbooks, but I don't really have anything to recommend that fits the bill.) She's specifically looking for a book with yummy recipes but not too demanding in terms of cooking skills and not having a bunch of expensive, hard-to-find ingredients. Her mom is widowed, lives alone, and doesn't really enjoy cooking that much now that she's only cooking for one. But apparently soup is something she's willing to make, and my friend is really concerned about her mom not eating right and is trying to help her any way she can.
