Made tonight and really like the convenience, ease, cost. However, I will be leaving out the basil and thyme as I felt additional seasonings didn't go with the dish I was making. I would rather just add seasonings to individual dishes. Thanks so much for this.

I found a 32 oz pack of dried milk for $3 (less than the 12oz size). I also found a packet of gluten free, vegetarian, no msg, mushroom sauce mix for $1 that I used in place of the boullion. The sauce mix was 1/2 cup & had starch in it so I cut the cornstarch back to 1/2 cup. Everything else I had on hand. It's awesome, little mushroom flavor, great upgrade from the can. I figured it cost me $2 & it will replace 10 cans. Great value & much healthier, besides the chemicals, healthy request cream of mushroom has 5g fat, 1025mg sodium per can. Mine has per "can" 2.4g fat & 217mg sodium.
