Quick and Easy Soup

The soup turned out great. Next time I might add a little more liquid to mine. I added corn kernels this time, and we loved it. 

Fantastic Soup for Christmas Eve or Anytime!

Loved this easy recipe, and it was so elegant.  Only recommendation is if you want it to look like the picture sprinkle a few green onion slices at the end of simmering to maintain the bright green color...  Yum!

Delicious shrimp chowder with a nice heat

Wonderful as written.  We used fat-free half and half in place of cream.Question:  If you bring half and half or cream to a boil it will separate.  Although this did not hinder the taste, it required straining to remove the solids.  Did this occur in SL test kitchen?Is there a way to avoid it?
