Reviews for Snowflake Tomato Soup
"This was a mix review my husbund did not like it and I had mixed feelings on it. I did think it was good not great. It never thinkend up the sour cream just went to the bottom. I was a little disapointed because I was going to write happy birthday in it. It never made a snow flake it sank too. I think I will go back to my old recipe it was much better."
"I was in the mood for tomato soup and short on time when I found this one. It was ready in 30 minutes! I agree with another reviewer that it does need jazzed up a little flavor-wise. I added garlic salt, pepper, and dried basil. Fresh minced garlic would probably be good as well. I will be making this again because it is fast and a good base to add in seasonings to your own taste. Love the snowflake idea to make it pretty!"
"Why would anyone change this recipe and then rate it so low??? It is wonderful just the way it is. Very comforting."
"Made several changes. used an extra can of chicken broth to make more soup. Also sauteed a medium onion ,chopped adding it to tomato mixture. Added 1\2 tsp baking soda to tomatos before simmering them, big difference in taste. simmered soup with a bay leaf , didnt add oregano , sour cream or whipping cream. the soup came out great!"
