In the first couple months of our marriage, I learned Mikey’s favorite soup is split pea. I really wanted to make it for him, but I was desperately afraid. I don’t know why, but soups scared me. Maybe it was because of that one time I made gooey black beans that looked more like mush than brothy beans? I’ll never know, but I was afraid to make any other soups!
I worked up the courage and decided to give it a go. I took my mom’s Cuban cookbook (probably the most precious hand-me-down I’ve ever owned), and put together a recipe that I thought would work in my crock pot. After tweaking it a few times here and there (and many bowls of split pea soup between that!), I think I found something that works, tastes delicious, is made all by itself over the course of the day, and best of all, is not scary! Try it out and let me know if you like it. 🙂
If you need a crock pot, I wholeheartedly recommend this one. It is the one I have and works wonderfully!
