One of my favorite things to make is soup. I never get tired of making it, and I never tire of eating it. One evening when I was making French Onion Soup, I realized that I bought chicken stock instead of the traditional beef stock for my soup. Being too lazy to go to the store, I used the lighter chicken stock and now prefer my onion soup this way. It is less heavy and fresher tasting. Feel free to add lots of fresh herbs that you have in your fridge, it will only enhance the freshness.

Garlic croutons are perfect floating on top of this soup. It adds crunch and texture. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and chives and you have the most comforting soup ever.
