As you may already know, Julia Child's is one of my hero's! I mean, how can you not love a woman with that kind of passion, curiosity and excitement for life? She was not afraid to try new things, take a leap of faith, get messy, or make mistakes; making her recipes that much more fabulous. One of my favorite adopted recipe from Julia Child's, is Simply Recipes take on her Split Pea Soup from her cookbook, The Way To Cook. It is the perfect soup for a cold and rainy day...I think I will make some right away. Bon Appetit!
P.S. To make it a vegetarian soup, omit the ham hacks and just add a veggie bullion cube to flavor!
