    Great Recipe. I substituted jalapeno pepper jack cheese to give it some spice. My whole family LOVED IT!! Definitely a keeper!

    Delicious soup. Great texture; not too thin and not too thick. I used 1 lb of fresh (instead of frozen)broccoli and chopped it. Enjoyed by all! I'll make this again. Thanx for a great soup.

    Delicious! I used fresh broccoli as well. The only other change I made was to add Chipotle Jack cheese instead of cheddar for a bit of a spicy kick. My husband loved it. So did I. The flavors and saltiness were just right. I did bring the soup to a light boil after adding the milk, while stirring frequently, just to make sure it thickened and was smooth. I'll be making this again for sure!

    Delicious AND easy! Used fresh broccoli and Vermont white cheddar cheese as that is what I had on hand. On it's way to the "Favorites" folder!


I am 30 years old. I am married and have a wonderful family. My hubbie is the greatest. We have a 2 1/2 year old little girl. Her name is Lizzie Belle. I have pics if anyone wants to see. I work for a bank in Brandon, MS. My hubbie is a police officer in Jackson. I have a great cookbook that is called "Any Blonde Can Cook". It is awesome. I love to cook...when I have the time. My family keeps me pretty busy though. I enjoy reading books, going to the movies, traveling, spending time with my family, cooking, playing with Lizzie Belle, tanning, and getting my nails done.
