I don’t know where you guys live, but here in Shanghai we are experiencing a VERY cold winter. Last week we had -8 and this morning when I woke up it was all covered in snow.

I can’t handle cold weather…my Southern Italian body is just not made for that. Someone send help please!….or send soups, just send soup!

This spicy kimchi soup was just what I needed to warm my body and soul. It is very easy so if you like spicy, give this a try!
