Looking to cook something for mom? Dave Chudowsky's daughters share their recipe for a special Mother's Day soup

It's a cozy meal the whole family can enjoy and make together.

CLEVELAND — It’s going to be a different kind of Mother’s Day as we continue to maintain physical distancing and follow stay-at-home orders into yet another weekend.

Getting something for mom is certainly important, but for the Chudowsky sisters spending time with their mom is extra special. So, this week Brooklyn and London are sharing a special recipe. 

Chudowsky’s wife, Lindsay, and the girls spent some time in the kitchen making one of the family’s favorite meals: Kale and potato with Italian sausage soup.  

Brooklyn says: “Oh, I love it. I once had three bowls.”

London says: “I actually don’t like it. I love it!”

Watch the video in the player above for the step-by-step process to make this delicious soup along with the ingredients and directions below.

The Chud sisters hope you enjoy this as much as they do. Brooklyn and London will be back next week with more ideas on 3News and wkyc.com.
