Posted by Heather Neal on Tuesday, September 24th, 2019 at 7:59pm

This week not only marked the Autumn Equinox, but also the celebration of another holiday – National Cooking Day! On September 25th, we honor and commemorate the joys of home cooking.

Need some inspiration for a delicious recipe to warm your belly? Look no further than this gem from Brooke Sullivan’s very own kitchen. Mulligatawny is a soup which originated from South Indian cuisine, and this version is a family recipe that has been passed down from four Sullivan generations.
