MY REVIEW

This soup was delicious, I added bouillon cubes as the potatoes boiled. I was on the fence about the broccoli but I chopped it finely and tossed it in. It made the soup look pretty.

My sister-in-law whipped this together during a recent visit to her house on a bitter cold day. I was impressed how she was able to make a soup from scratch in such a short period of time. The soup was hearty, delicious, and cozy. She had copied the recipe down from the magazine so I quickly looked it up on the Taste of Home website when I returned home because I know I'll be making it for my family.

I just tried this recipe tonight and it was a big hit at my house! I love it because it has the 3 qualities I love the most about a meal...cheap, easy to make, and it tastes good! My son made me promise to save the left overs so that he could eat them tomorrow and also made me promise that I would make this again! The only way I altered the recipe was I didn't use broccoli since I have some picky eaters, and I added a little bit more cheese.

MY REVIEW

I'll be making this as one of my 3 soups for our Christmas get-together but I'll add sour cream and garnish with crisp potato shreds. Will use the corn rather than broccoli also since more child friendly and perhaps use a bit of parsley for color. I also use homemade chicken broth rather than water for added depth. I'm rating this 4 stars as it takes the additions to make it a 5!
