  4. This is one of my favorite soups! I made French Onion Soup last year at my daughter's house, and that recipe was a lengthy process to caramelize the onions, but the soup was good. I'm going to have to try your recipe and try it with the wine.

    1. I sure hope you enjoy it Daphne. The idea is to use wine in the recipe and then drink the rest of the bottle when making the soup :) Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Oh yum! Have not had onion soup in a while. Thanks for your recipe.
