  1. This is wonderful, I'm thinking that it will be on mt Thanksgiving table this year. I'm out of nutmeg atm so used allspice in it's place. I was doing wee taste tests as it was made and when everything except the pepper was in I was a bit concerned because it was seriously lacking something. I added some white pepper and like magic the flavor was fully rounded and had me making that mmmmmm sound. Don't skip the pepper! It's very quick to make and I used fat free evaporated milk. For me, this is a keeper.
  2. Absolutely my favorite fall soup. I made it last year around this time and I'm so excited to make it again. Delish!
  3. This is not a bisque.
  4. Great, easy recipe. Delicious fall dinner. I, too, felt it benefited from a little extra pepper to bring out the flavor. I used low sodium chicken broth, and added another 1/4 tsp of salt.


<p>My rating system: (I don't like giving bad reviews, so if I don't like it, I'll just not review it.) <br /><br />5 Stars OMG, this is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! I can't stop eating it, and I've eaten myself into a food coma. <br /><br />4 Stars The recipe is wonderful as is. I can't think of a single improvement and I will most likely make it again. <br /><br />3 Stars This needed a little *something*something*. I might make it again, but will add my own improvements if I do. <br /><br />I love to eat! And I love to cook. I tend to take over the kitchen when I get in there. Even the dog knows the command get outta my kitchen! LOL. Cooking for other people and trying new recipes or foods is FUN! I have a small (but growing quickly!!) cookbook collection and one of my favorite things to do is to read recipes and plan meals. Rachael Ray, Horn of the Moon and Moosewood are favorites of mine. <br /><br />We spend a lot of time outdoors camping, hiking and backpacking. Yup. I cook in the woods too! I've made deals with my hiking buddies... If they carry in my food, I'll cook for them. I recently published a backpacking cookbook.
