Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
I made "6" servings of this soup, but I ended up with enough to serve at least 8. I used less butter & whipping cream and it still came out delicious and very creamy. Here's my proportions: 6 medium to large tomatoes (didn't worry about peeling - I just seeded them), 6 cups Campbells tomato juice, 30 fresh basil leaves (approx), 1 cup heavy whipping cream, 1 stick salted butter, few shakes of dried oregano. This works out to about 1 tbsp butter and 1/8 cup of whipping cream per person, which really isn't that unhealthy at all. And like I said, it was plenty creamy! Oh, also, I melted some cheese on toasted poboy bread (french bread for those not from the south) and used that for dipping - it was great!

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2011
Made this for pre-thanksgiving snacking and received rave reviews from many people. I suggest using a bit more spinach/artichoke (or less mayo/cream cheese)...I think a bit more substance and a less creamy-base-items would have made it even better.

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
I doubled the chili powder & cumin and added a fresh birdseye pepper to give it an extra kick. I also didn't bother to puree it - I like the chunkyness of the lentils & carrots moreso than the liquid soup version. Overall very delicious, no matter the consistency you choose.
