"YUM! Followed the recipe exactly and this soup is very good!"

"We loved this soup and so easy to make. I have made frequently since I first tried it and will continue to go this recipe throughout the winter months."

"Nice and easy, will make again. I used evaporated milk instead of half and half cream to make it lighter. I think I'm going to use less of it next time, though, it smothers the nice flavor of broccoli. I also used more nutmeg."

"This was easy an easy recipe to prepare. I found it lacking a little on the flavor front, so I added a cup of shredded cheddar cheese. Be careful not to warm it too long, as the half and half will begin to curdle."

"This was very good but I would cut back on the flour because I don't like it real thick."
