Reviewed Broccoli Cheese Soup

Nov 13, 2013 on

Whoa Foodnetwork fouled this one up! If you look at Pioneer Woman's website, her broccoli cheese soup calls for 1/3 cup flour. Don't make this the way it's posted, you'll just get broccoli cheese paste, what a waste of ingredients that would be! 5 stars for a tasty filling soup with or without ham, minus 10 stars for Foodnetwork's lack of attention...

what an easy treat, crepes are wonderful and this is a perfect formula. my husband likes his with coconut curd, my grandkids want theirs with nutella and i like either lemon zest and lemon juice or lemon curd. That is a nice tip about letting the bubbles go away and this is my go to recipe.... give it a try!"

I ordered McVities on Amazon because in Wyoming they are pretty pricey for very few and graham crackers are not a just not the same and lemon curd is always welcome at my table ( I love Rachael Khoo's madeleine recipe with raspberries and lemon curd).
