    ROD 6/23/2006 Soap Opera Day Passions Tomato Soup Cake

    Source of Recipe


    Recipe Introduction

    Daytime TV came from radio serials - along with the advertisers who targeted housewives. Soaps never begin and never end. They are slow paced so you can miss episodes. But, the biggest reason they are so popular is their reliance on dialogue. This is done so people can listen to the audio portion without even watching the television set and still understand the story. Just like radio!
