    PianoCook's Note:

    From a website called Dr. Delicious. When I heard the website name, I thought, "Really?" But it's actually the best recipe I've found for this. Even better if you make the French bread fresh that morning.

      DS is on spring break from school so I made this soup for a light lunch today. We both really enjoyed it. I loved the aroma of the wine while it simmered. I made the recipe just as stated & it was delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe, Vicki! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2009 Pick A Chef.

      This soup was very yummy! I've been carmelizing onions for alot of years now and 12 minutes will not be enough time to begin the carmelization process. I let my Mayan Sweets go for about 45 minutes, then added the garlic and sugar, which I think added to the carmelization. I used a full 1/4 cup of flour, (personal taste for thicker soup), and could only find sliced swiss, which worked just as well as grated under the broiler. Fabulous recipe, easy, and DD and boyfriend ate it with gusto! YUM!
