This soup tastes great and by using low fat dairy and low sodium soup you'll have the taste without all the calories.
“When trying to find the words to tell her how much I loved her, I stumbled across the ingredients for grilled cheese sandwiches. That’s when I realized she was the melted cheese to my toast. And the guy she’s currently seeing, the guy she left me for, well, I guess he is the tomato soup.

You cannot have a "WTH" attitude when baking a cake. Baking involves exact measurements and precise timing. If you use too much baking powder your cake will be bitter and collapse in the middle. If you leave your cookies in the oven for an extra five minutes they will burn on the bottom. End of story. Baking is like chemistry. Chemistry was not my best subject as a kid and baking is definitely not my best as an adult (dozens of burnt cookies and brownies over the years support my case). Cooking, however, is a much more forgiving …
