MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 7, 2012

I made this soup as a starter for a Christmas dinner. It was amazing. My guests loved it and many went back for seconds. I topped each bowl with a parmesean crisp "snowflake"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 17, 2011

This soup was a complete waste of time and MONEY. My family is almost always complimentary when I try a new dish and this soup was voted the worst thing I have ever made. It was very hard to watch the leftovers (and there was a lot) wash down the disposal.

I could not talk at the dinner table because I had to keep spooning this delicious soup into my mouth; this is a keeper.
