Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

chili basil tomato soup

are you looking for a twist on a tomato soup recipe?  well, here is one that is quite tasty.  it warmed me up one night this week and was very easy to prepare.  served with crusty bread and a salad, the whole meal was perfect for a weeknight warm-up.

to make the soup:
combine two cans of progresso condensed tomato soup undiluted with 1 can of evaporated milk, 1 cup of 2 percent milk or half and half, and 1 10-oz can of diced tomatoes and green chilies undrained.  i used ROTEL. add 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped basil, salt and pepper to taste.

heat and serve with shredded Parmesan and parsley as garnish.
