When I had surgery, my oldest son, a chef, came to cook my meals. He made a simple cream of cauliflower soup with ingredients I had. I was so touched that he came to care for me. This soup reminds me of that special time. — Mildred Caruso, Brighton, Tennessee

"Although I love cream of cauliflower soup, artichoke hearts, AND bacon, I didn't think these elements really complimented one another in this soup. The soup itself was okay, but no better than what I make without a recipe, and the artichoke hearts and bacon really added nothing. I saw this recipe and couldn't wait to make it, but after a couple of bowls, am throwing out the rest. Disappointing."
