Quote: "It shouts out loud: I really care for you!" I lived in Colombia, South America, and Sancocho is the ultimate in comfort food there! And like in Italian homes, each family has their own version of lasagna; this is my personalized version of the soup. It is believed that it is so powerful that it can bring the dead back to life. That is why it is served after every party and makes the perfect Sunday meal!
