Rich Tomato Basil Soup Copycat {la Madeleine' Is My Favorite}

Tomato Basil Soup, no matter the season, this soup will be the one you turn to when some one says "soups on".  It is briming with rich flavors and hearty ingredients. Today it is raining like crazy here in Northeast Texas.  We experienced a dangerous drought this Summer and early Fall, so we are not complaining.  Today is a perfect day for soup, and my Tomato Basil Soup is a quick and hearty tomato soup to warm you up. My favorite place to eat Tomato Basil Soup is at a la Madeleine' Country French Cafe --  so much so that I had to find out how to make it.   I found this copycat recipe that is the closest to la Madeleine's so far.   Their Signature Tomato Basil Soupe is available at Sam's, and I must say I do buy it occasionally, but it is pretty pricy. It doesn't go very far ---  so this soup is a fill in until I make it to my favorite eating place.

Winter Fruit Salad {Janna's Recipe}

Winter Fruit Salad, is made with seasonal fresh fruit, and the dressing adds the perfect touch of freshness. This salad is as delicious as it is gorgeous.    My daughter, Janna, makes this Healthy Winter Fruit Salad each year for Thanksgiving and Christmas that her daddy simply enjoys it every time she makes it.   Because of her diabetes, she is always looking for and developing recipes that are healthy and delicious at the same time.  This fruit salad is delicious by itself, but you will want to drizzle the Agave Lime Dressing over it to capture all those wonderful juices from the fruit. Janna has a real eye for delicious and healthy food and is always calling me and letting me know some of her ideas.  She has this wonderful recipe for a Berry Granola Trifle that is a morning ritual for her breakfast that I will be sharing later!
