Thank you so much for this recipe!! I used regular granulated sugar, homemade canned tomatoes, and my own chicken broth (none of which altered the total calories) and it was fantastic! I have been searching for the perfect tomato bisque & here it is. No more unfulfilled pregnancy cravings!! - 1/18/09
