  1. Made this soup and it was real good. The only thing I changed was I added more bacon.
  2. This is a good soup I used a ham bone an chicken broth it was great
  3. This made a nice, quick dinner served with Recipe #275055 and green onions. I used about 4 cups of chicken broth and omitted the heavy cream. I did top off each serving with some pepper sauce for a little kick.
  4. Newest Zaar Tag 2007 ~ This is definitely comfort food! I cut it down to only 1 cup beans and 3 cups broth but left the remaining amounts the same. There are only two of us and we practically devoured the whole lot of it! I would say definitely use the cream as it really adds to the flavor and gives it that great creamy base. A keeper in my book! Thanks mary!


I have two boys who will usually eat most things I put in front of them. As a single mom I use them as my guinea pigs....sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I have a huge garden, blueberry and blackberry bushes. I am always looking for a new recipe. I have three cats (Xiao Mao, which means little cat in Chinese, Pumpkin and Max) and two border collies, Lucy and Grace. All my animals come from Rescue Agencies. <a href="¤t=rsc002.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"><a href="¤t=006.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a><a href="¤t=hilfiger001.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
