"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""

"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."
