Broccoli and Cheese Soup

The green broccoli florets and brilliant orange carrots make this rich soup a colorful addition to any table.

This is another recipe I got from a Southern Living magazine. Had to share this because we all need a good soup during this cold winter season.

I like trying new soup recipes, but I tend to stray back to the classic ones when it comes time to cook up something.

If you don't have a lot of time to spare in the kitchen, this recipe is quick and easy.
