I cook soups frequently. They are easy to make, easy to tweak, and hard to mess up.
Cooking Hint: I did NOT say soup is impossible to mess up. I have proven it is, in fact, possible. I have scorched chicken on the bottom of a pot before I even got started doing anything besides boiling a whole chicken. Words of wisdom, don’t be like me and try to salvage it. Throw it away! Or better yet, prevent a disaster before it happens and do not start anything on scorching high heat and walk away. See that tiniest bit of black stuff on the bottom of the meat? Do not even try to pick it off and rinse it off. That not-so-flavorful taste will permeate the entire dish.
