Quick and Easy

One of my favorite things about fall is pulling out all of the recipes that we only get this time of year; casseroles, soups, stews, all those warm things that nobody would want to touch in the summer heat. My favorite way to make soup is to let it simmer on the stove all day so we can smell it's yummy goodness. Sometimes though, simmering all day doesn't fit into my schedule and I want something to warm up with quick! This is my favorite go to soup for that. It is relatively cheap, quick and easy, and most importantly, delicious!
Broccoli Cheese Soup (from Jeremy's Aunt Jill)

  1. Oh yum! I used to love broccoli cheese soup before I realized I was allergic to dairy. Last weekend I had a celebrate fall party. We had a few people over and had all our fall favorites. My leek soup didn't turn out too well though...I tried a new recipe and it tasted like turkey gravy! LOL

  2. You know we all love it girlfriend

  3. This sounds awesome!! Have you ever frozen the leftovers? Just curious....
