  1. I'm new here sent over from Mandy, (Love her and her husband) thank you so much for the new soup recipes I will be making them very soon, I like the way you do your recipes a little of this and a little of that my way of cooking, but I do like whole recipe and then you tweak them,

  2. I came from the Mandy in the Making channel also. These soups look yummy. Just a sidenote, I just made cream of cauliflower soup in my instant pot and I threw in a Parmesan rind. Watching your video here, I just realized that I left it in there and didn’t pull it out afterwords LOL. I puréed my soup with the Parmesan rind in there lol. I guess it didn’t hurt it because the soup turned out really good! Go figure! 😌

  3. Hi Mindy, I’m so glad you and Mandy did this collaboration! I’ve been watching her channel for a long time so I’m always quick to check out the channels she suggests! I’m excited to be a new member you of the Mandy and Mindy subbie squad! I’m looking forward to watching your video’s and finding some new recipes for my family to try! I’m excited to explore your “budget” friendly recipes, I absolutely hate buying groceries, it always seems like I’m “wasting” money because at the end of the week I don’t have anything to show for it even though I know that’s far from true because my family has been fed home cooked meals and health and happiness is ALL that matters ❤️

  4. Mandy in the Making sent me here! I will definitely check out more of your videos! Thanks for the soup ideas! Also…I cook the way you do when it comes to measurements. Whenever I give a friend a recipe I always end up giving up estimating the measurements about half way through…haha.

  5. So my thinking would be to use my instapot. I would sautés the onion, celery and carrots in the instapot and then add the rest and switch over to the crockpot setting. I feel like you don't get the sweetness and caramelization of the mirepoix. Just my two cents.

  6. Mandy sent me over and I am thrilled that she did. I believe I am going to like your recipes because we have a similar cooking style. It's just my husband and I, we are retired living on social security. We really need some budget friendly meals.
    I plan on checking out some of your older videos tomorrow because it's close to my bedtime now. Night and thank you for the meal ideas.
