"I love this soup. Hands down my favorite soup ever. Im not a big dill fan... but you need it for the flavor. I usually go a little light on it... but its not as good without it completely. Every person in my family (and i have three kids!) loves this soup."

"This soup is a family favorite! Every time I ask my teenager what she would like, it's this soup. Win! We like to add diced ham and shredded cheddar to it and sour dough toast on the side."

"I love this soup!! So easy and I think it has a lot of flavor. I leave out the dill also. It's not really a main course soup, goes well with a grilled cheese sandwich."

"This soup is so yummy. It's even better the next day when the spices have a chance to meld into the soup. This is a keeper!"

"I followed the recipe exactly but didn't find it that tasty. I ended adding some extra spices but still would not make it again."
