MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 1, 2014

I have had this recipe in my box for years. I made a note to use milk instead of water to make it more of a tomato bisque.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 17, 2010

I used basil instead of time and cut the butter in half and added a splash of olive oil. It was very good.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 25, 2009

I like my tomato soup creamy, so after taking out the bay leaf I poured it in the blender and it came out very creamy.
