    GREAT SOUP! One of the easiest soups ever. Not only easy but absolutely delicious. Creamy and rich with a wonderfully appealing color. I too didn't have the Cheese Wizz but had an extra container of Philadelphia chive and onion spreadable on hand which worked really well. Used a generous cup of half and half. Did have fresh dill on hand which I snipped in - can't wait to make this with dill fresh from the garden. Made for the AUZ/NZ Swap. Another of your recipes that is going into my Favorites Collection! Thank you Dot!

    I do not know what Cheese Whizz is, I assume it is a cheese spread, so taking a leaf out of Karen Elizabeth's book I used cheese spread in my soup! Delicious - creamy and easy to make. No fresh dill at present, so I used fresh chervil which has an aniseed flavour. I also topped my soup with a grated carrot garnish for good measure. I ate this with a round of sandwiches for a very satisfying meal. Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap #26 - enjoyed for lunch today! Merci! FT:-)

    It certainly is an easy and delicious soup! Made last night, it made a generous amount, in fact I added some water as I went so that it wouldn't be too thick. I did add a vegetable stock cube, we are not into excess seasoning but I did feel it needed just a little something! I used cheese spread to stir in, which was fine, and added a swirl of light cream to each bowl.. You don't state how much half and half, so I just went with my swirls! :) I left it to cook while I got on with the ironing, I had prepared a french loaf with some parmesan and garlic butter, wrapped it in foil and popped it in the oven for twenty minutes, so supper looked after itself whilst I got on with other things! Thanks, Dotty! Made for Aussie/NZ swap#25, February 09
