From Publishers Weekly:

Moore ( Baking Your Own ) here considers what is common to food served in a bowl. Starting with principles of stock preparation, but confessing that canned broth is perfectly acceptable as a base, she then works through the genres, justifiably observing how little must be conceded to cholesterol and fat for rib-sticking heartiness. The author seems surest with soups running heavy to vegetables (although only a few of these compounds are actually meatless) and is a connoisseur of herbs, calling frequently for fresh-picked basil, lemon thyme, rosemary or summer savory. In other contexts, she is content to be less discerning; the gumbo and chili recipes call indiscriminately for "chili powder or pure ground chiles," "curry powder" or "hot pepper sauce," as if these generic terms were definitive. She does make the point that most simmering concoctions can forgive considerable latitude in preparation, and these 150-odd recipes, while guiding the timid with clear and complete procedures, reveal enough general principles to tempt the adventurous to improvise. An excellent chapter on tangy fruit soups, both hot and cold, complements the savoriness of the main collection. The concluding bread and cracker recipes are a useful afterthought.

From Library Journal:

More comfort food from the author of The Wooden Spoon Dessert Book ( LJ 2/15/90) . Soup cooks will find their old-fashioned favorites here, but there are also lighter versions of some old standards as well as unusual variations such as Wheat Berry Chili. Moore begins with a chapter on homemade stocks, but many of the recipes can be made in very little time. While there is not quite the variety of Julia Older and Steve Sherman's Ultimate Soup Book ( LJ 8/91), Moore's book is sure to be popular.
