Yummy Tomato Basil Soup for a rainy night

Yummy soup to warm your heart on a foggy, rainy night.


2 (28 ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth
 18 fresh basil leaves, minced
 1 teaspoon sugar
 1 cup whipping cream
1/2 cup butter or margarine


In a large saucepan, bring the tomatoes and broth to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Add basil and sugar. Reduce heat to low; stir in cream and butter. Cook until butter is melted.

This recipe was from

My own little twist on this delight:
**** I also have used one can crushed tomatoes and one large whipping cream container and it was really creamy, with one chicken bouillon cube and about 2 tbs basil and omit the butter, very good too!!

Serve with crusty bread and share with friends(if you are feeling like it, or you may want it all to yourself!!!)

Sweet Cheeks Galore!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing two sweet little cuties along with my own newborn in Crossville last week. They all January babies born on the 7th, 19th and 23rd. Mr. "C" and Miss "S" are first cousins so it was so much fun working with them and their mommies. At about 2:30 they all felt the urge to get fussy so we patiently all fed our little ones, did diaper changes and outfit changes and went back to playing photo shoots with them. The girls definitely do not like hats as you can see from my little Adrienne in the red hat. But all in all it was a fun day and we all slept well that night, babies included!
