Top Review by Sydney Mike

Although I usually like making a soup in less than half an hour, it's always nice, once in a while, to take the time to make one like this, 'cause the rewards it a wonderful smell throughout the kitchen accompanied by being able to eat & enjoy some great comfort food! We love your soup & I'll keep the recipe around so I can make it again! Thanks for sharing it with us! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
