    I don’t see why not, Dawn!

    If this is as good as it sounds, there probably won’t be any leftovers :) If there are, does it freeze well?

    I wanted to make a comment about the half and half to Emma. I have found that substituting half and half with equal amounts of (English) single cream mixed with milk is a better option than evaporated milk. Evap has a really strange flavor to it which can overpower some recipes. Just a thought :)
    Looking forward to trying this recipe.

    Stephanie, we used a 6qt crock so it will really fill up a 4qt!

    Emma, no questions are silly! Half and half is a dairy product found in the milk section. If you can’t find it you can substitute it in equal amounts with evaporated milk (found in a can on the baking aisle).

    Will this recipe work in a 4QT slow cooker ?

    Okay, Im going to sound a little stupid but Im from the Scotland and I have no clue what half and half is, so what should I be using because this recipe sounds amazing and simple (expect the half and half) and I really want to make it because I’m always wanting new soup recipes for the winter here because its freezing and Its great for walking home from college at night.

    Thanks
    Emma

    This was delicious! I will use this recipe forever! It was so easy. The only thing I did differently was ran the mixture through a strainer after blending. It made the soup so silky and smooth. Such a great flavor! Thank you for another fantastic recipe!

    Sorry, Amanda. Maybe you could double the spices if you’re looking for a stronger flavor…with little ones we tend to keep our food pretty mild.

    I was disappointed in this — it didn’t have nearly enough flavor, even after adding garlic salt and ground black pepper.

    I liked this but it seems to need a little more tomato flavor in my humble opinion. Next time I may try doing two 8 oz cans of tomato paste instead of one. Thanks for a yummy soup!

    Had it for dinner tonight and LOVED it!! So simple and tasty!! We liked it with more salt and will probably leave out the bay leaves next time, but that’s just our personal taste!! That’s what’s so great about crockin’, you can always make it your own!!

    I made it and really liked it and so did my family! I added an extra clove of garlic, some parm cheese, salt, pepper and even a little garlic salt at the end for a little more flavor! My husband wants me to keep it on hand all the time! Thanks Crockin Girls!

    This was delicious and easy. I did add more salt than I usually put into a soup, and I added a package of frozen spinach (thawed and drained). I wish it had a bit more tomato flavor, so perhaps I’ll add some tomato or V-8 juice. I’d still make it again!

    I love tomato soup! It’s getting cold in the northeast and a good hot soup sounds wonderful. I can’t wait to make. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes. I love your cookbook and ordered 2 to give away for Christmas.

    Made this today for lunch and it is delicious! I had to make a few substitutions due to ingredients on hand. I used chicken stock and a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes as that is all I had in the cupboards. Turned out great! Will definitely make this again.
