Cream of Celery Soup Review by Pati Cumo on September 23rd, 2012:

I made it and it was delicious. I wished that the amount of ingredients made a bigger batch.

Cream of Celery Soup Review by Danna on October 5th, 2012:

It was nice but it was a waste of vegetables at the end. Better outcome when you puree it all.

Cream of Celery Soup Review by Theresa on December 16th, 2012:

I tasted it without the veggies, then pureed a small part of it and tasted that, and I thought that was 10 times better...! So I pureed it all and enjoyed an awesome soup with bread. Half the recipe makes abt 4 portions = perfect.
