This looks splendidly yummy! I'll try this next for my kid's snack...we used to have Berry Buttermilk Soup which we found on GourmetRecipe.com but it's nice to try new things. I often check it out for recipes and cooking information including Care2.com, WikiChicken.com, EverythingLemon.com, and the SaladSite.com for different moods and occasions. Thanks for this appetizing recipe!
