When times get tough, Suzan Colon's family puts up soup. This reminder from her mother sent Suzan to the basement to look for her grandmother's treasure trove of recipes. What she found was "something more than a collection of recipes--she had found the key to her family's survival through hard times."

Many of the thoughts and fears expressed by Ms. Colon rang true. I didn't put up soup, but there was a pot of beef stew to lend comfort of my first day of imposed leisure.
