    Sounds really good, except I don't use "cream of " condensed soups

    I found that I can make a homemade version, it's powdered so it keeps in the fridge & you are making it when needed.. Also cheaper in long run
    I have been growing my collection of make from scratch recipes for awhile, trying to make thing better for us.

     It's at my mom's house......I can't make them ANYTHING like mom, so I always call her when I'm in the mood for them.  lol
