The cooler weather marks soup season as well. A household favorite is tomato. I grew up on the canned stuff, so it was about time to swap out my beloved soup cans and try my hand at a homemade version. It’s thicker than standard tomato soup with a delicious helping of fresh basil. It definitely has cured my craving for La Madeleine’s tomato bisque, something I’ve been missing since they closed in Phoenix.
