    Sometimes I forget how wonderfully satisfying it can be to make a simple soup with the best ingredients of the season. Indulge me as a share photos from yesterday's endeavor, which reminded me why I love to cook.

    Beautiful local ramps, potatoes, fennel.

    Ramps sweating in butter, creating an intoxicating aroma throughout the house.

    Potatoes and bright-green ramp tops added to the pot with chicken stock:

    Blend, then strain. The ramp tops create a beautiful pale green color that screamed springtime to me.

    Sliced fennel tossed with olive oil and sea salt, then roasted:

    Potato-ramp soup with caramelized fennel, garnished with fennel fronds.
