Single Mom Survival Tip #1


I have never, ever been accused of being born to cook – however, as much as it pains me – it’s a necessary evil.  So my favorite survival secret is my crockpots – anything I can throw together and have ready on busy nights is a lifesaver.  Here’s one of the recipes that gets asked for most (at home & at work!)

Tomato Basil Soup

2 – 28 oz cans of crushed tomatos

1 – 14.5 oz can of chicken broth

1 tsp sugar

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup butter

fresh basil (in my mind the more the better )

Throw it in, mix it up, let heat (seriously – a late lunch and putting this on warm works!) and enjoy (especially enjoy the easy clean up!!)!
