 Cream of Cauliflower Soup
"This mildly cheesy cauliflower soup is one of my favorites," writes Karen Brown of West Lafayette, Ohio. "I first served it for a bridge luncheon, but it's not just appealing to women. Guys, including my two sons and husband, enjoy it, too. I make it often in summer, although it's good anytime."
