  3. I live in CA and can’t imagine cream of mushroom soup in this recipe. Otherwise it sounds good and will probably try it and ignore the soup and improvise.

  4. I am surprised, that it calls for cream of mushroom soup. I suppose to help bind it together. Also, where can you find raw honey crystals for that one breakfast recipe?? Thanks.
