Friends, when I was younger, I hated tomato soup. I had no appreciation for the flavor. Now, it’s a completely different story.

I don’t know about you, but a bowl of warm delicious goodness is what I opt-in for in the fall, spring, and winter months.

I keep the tomato soup recipe as classic as possible – therefore, there will be no need to revert back to canned tomato soup. Let’s be honest, the homemade stuff is always better, right?
