Yes! Another review and giveaway! Another chance for you to win a cookbook! I'm having so much fun doing this, and enjoy meeting new blog friends and getting great feedback!
I love to make soup, especially during the fall and winter. I know I've mentioned that before...many times. And I think in every review I have picked at least one soup recipe. How exciting when I was asked to do an Early Bird Review on a cookbook that has so many yummy soup recipes! Plus, the Salad and Sandwich recipes are great too! Let's just say, it was very hard picking the recipes for the review.
What I love about the recipes in 101 Soups, Salads & Sandwiches, they are so easy to put together in a pinch. I'm always looking for recipes that I can make in very little time, with ingredients that I will have on hand. Makes my day so much easier!

1/4 c. onion, chopped

12-oz. tube refrigerated biscuits
In a skillet, brown beef and onion, drain. Add seasonings, mixed vegetables and tomato sauce; mix well.
Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Fold in cheese cubes; pour into an ungreased 2-quart casserole dish.
