learned two things from making crab bisque – 1. It’s impossible to take a good photo of soup if you have the wrong bowl.  Please Santa bring me some decent dinnerware.  2. Bisques are simple and easy.  Why don’t I make these more often?

This Crab Bisque recipe comes from Taste of Home. When trying out new cooking territory, I like to start with a recipe so I can always blame someone else if it doesn’t turn out right.
