I know, I know, it’s been a while and I’m sure you’re wanting all the juicy details of the wedding, the honeymoon and the return to the real world.

But, alas, you’ll have to wait — it’s recipe time!

I had a hankerin’ for some Italian sausage earlier (yes, I really said ‘hankerin’) earlier, and Colby wanted soup, so…Italian Sausage Soup it is.
