Mom’s Famous Carrot Soup with kaffir lime and ginger infused cannabis coconut oil

via Sarah Houghton | @sullyinthesun

FOR MY WEDDING SHOWER, my mom prepared a scrapbook with old recipes from family and friends. She has hundreds of recipes in her rolodex and just as many cookbooks on her shelves, but she hand selected the ones most important to pass down to the next generation. This carrot soup, in particular, is so good that my mom convinced the head chef at the Grand Del Mar to add it to his menu for my sister's wedding. Now, I make it in my kitchen using the Vitamix she gave to me along with the recipe scrapbook.”
