Homemade Cream of Mushroom Soup

Have you ever tried to make your own cream soups?  I promise, it’s not as hard as you may think.  Making soup is simply the task of adding flavour to liquid!  Today I’m going to share with you one of my favourite soups, Cream of Mushroom, but made at home with Carnation® Evaporated Milk…rather than the store bought that I’m used to.

Creamy Carrot Soup Featuring Carnation Evaporated Milk ® {Recipe}
