Quick And Easy And Better Than The Can

On a chilly night, nothing says comfort like a nice bowl of creamy tomato soup.

Creamy tomato soup is the ultimate comfort food, especially when fresh heirloom tomatoes are used. The fact that it only takes 20 minutes, makes this soup even better than the canned version. Add a grilled cheese sandwich and you've got the perfect dinner for parents and kids alike.

    This creamy tomato soup recipe looks tasty! Making tomato soup is a great way to use up the tomatoes that I canned from the garden, but my kids don't like "regular" soup so much. I'm hoping that they'll like this creamy version. Thanks for posting this tomato soup recipe!
