Seeing as the weather is getting hotter and the days longer, I thought that this article would be of particular interest. Plus, I love to make soup - it's so easy and produces such great results.
Cold Soup by Mark Bittman of NY Times.
A nice cold soup can be just what you need on a hot day when eating a big meal will weigh you down.
The avocado vichyssoise, radish gazpacho, and melon soup look and sound particularly inviting.
I like Mark Bittman. I don't always follow all of his recipes, but his approach to food and recipes is rather refreshing and informative. I have his book How to Cook Everything and it has proved useful, not only for myself, but for almost every one of my roommates that has needed a little guidance.
