Creamy Tomato Basil Soup 

Tomato soup is good for the soul, and it’s good for your health when it’s made from scratch! Check out my new recipe for this super easy homemade soup that will have you wanting to keep a batch in the fridge at all times!

Sometimes, all we want is comfort food, and there’s not a whole lot more that screams comfort food than a bowl of tomato soup and grilled cheese. By making the soup from scratch, you’re avoiding all of the preservatives and who knows what that’s in the canned stuff, and you can feel good about what you’re eating!
