That's why she often serves Cheesy Broccoli Soup. "This creamy and flavorful soup goes together in a flash because it uses frozen chopped broccoli and process American cheese," she explains. Plus, it's easy to warm up if Bob works late. "He likes it so much that when he grocery shops, he always makes sure the ingredients for this soup are on the list," she reports.

"Very easy and good. I made a few adjustments. I added an additional cup of milk, used less velvetta and added some cheddar. I also added just a touch of salt, pepper, and ground sage."

"My picky family loved this. The onion flavor seems to mellow out if the soup is kept warming on the stove. Might benefit from a little garlic, a little more broth to make it thinner, and maybe a few stray veggies."

"I enjoyed this but also agree that less cheese is better. Try to use the chopped broccoli - I only had spears on hand and it made for some rather large spoonfuls!"

"It was pretty good for the first few bites, but after that it was way too rich and cheesy. Next time I make cheesy broccoli soup, I'll only put in 3/4 of a pound of cheese and more broccoli."

"seemed like it was missing something, maybe not enough of a cheddar taste, I think it needed some cheddar cheese added with the velveeta"
