Creamy, Dreamy Broccoli Cheese Soup

Melissa Henry


I have never made this kind of soup before, but hubby had a hanker'n for it so I went on a search for the perfect recipe. I found a couple that looked good, but wasn't exactly what I would do, so changed it up here and there until I came up with a creamy, dreamy recipe that will comfort any soup lovin' soul. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!
