  1. My favorite of your blogs was your February Recipe: Golden Yam Bisque! Because it looks fairly easy to make & like something that would definitely be a hit in our household!

  2. This is my favorite article because, it offers the chance for a free meal, and that will always top my list, especially when it a chance to get some Caesar Salad and Joan’s Broccoli Madness, it doesn’t get much better.

  3. I forgot to tell u , I follow on twitter and facebook, I tweeted a link to this blog, and I will post daily your tweet. I am @lanieekat on twitter, thanks.

  4. I love the recipe for the Golden Yam Bisque! It’s nice to find a soup recipe that can be eaten as a meal, yet also satisfies the sweet craving. No dessert needed after a bowl of this bisque! We’re so glad you’ve shared the recipe!

  5. I love the blog on sweet potato soup, as it’s my very favorite and I just had some down at Souplantation, Temecula, CA last week! Feel so very good after eating there. Feel healthy, instead of bogged down by heavy foods, like I usually feel after eating out in restaurants~

  6. My favorite post from Feb was the recipe for the soup. I love it in the store but since it has a limited run, I’m going to love making it at home too.

  7. Love the article on 10 Reasons to LOVE the Potato. We love potatoes in our family and to learn how really good they are for you is the sour cream on the potato!

    1. Congrats to The Mom Jen, Chrystal and Elaine for winning our first blog contest!!! It was our inaugural contest so thank you all for participating. Keep reading our blog for recipes, insights into the company and more contests!

  8. As I posted on my Facebook- We have been trying the Vegan diet since October and I highly recommend it for those with autoimmune disease. For this reason the blog of Feb 3 really spoke true to me.

    Souplantation has been a life saver for us as we make our way in this new world of eating for life.

  9. I enjoyed the post 10 reasons to love the potato. Good information about one fo my favorite foods. I also love the recipes posted. Yum!!

  10. I went back and looked again and I have to say I also liked the post Fresh from the Farm…I did not know that those cute little tomatoes didn’t even exist 14 years ago. Wow! The pictures are also very cute of the happy farmer.
