This recipe really only produces a 3 star soup unless you make some modifications. The following changes produce a really good soup, though still not 5 stars...
I wanted to be sure the rice cooked, so I turned the crock pot on low overnight rather than the 4 hours suggested.
(The other reviewers said the rice didn't cook well enough in that amount of time. Mine cooked about 8 hours, I think it would have been done an hour or two before I woke, but it still turned out fine letting it go so I could get a full 8 hours of sleep.)
I couldn't bring myself to add the flour to the cream the way the author suggested, so I used some butter and made a roux. I added the cream and a little sherry to the roux, and then added that mixture back in the crock pot.
This recipe is not very flavorful and it tasted a lot better when I added garlic powder, cayenne pepper (just enough to make it warm, not enough to bite), and quite a bit of sage. Then I had a soup worth making again.
