Here is our one and only Tomato Basil soup recipe. We think we could make more money selling this recipe than baking bread! Forget making money....here it is! At our cafe, we tried having other soup specials but the customers wouldn't hear of it. People would eat this daily with a side salad or half sandwich. This along with our crusty bread with butter would be a delicious treat for your family this holiday season. Enjoy!
