Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup

This soup is so good. The perfect soup to serve with sandwiches.


1 medium onion, chopped
4 stalks of celery, chopped
3 TBS.butter
1/3 flour
4 cups diced potatoes ( I buy organic so I leave the skins on)
2 1/2 cups chopped broccoli, steamed until crisp tender
1 32oz. box of chicken broth
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 1/2 cups skim milk ( half and half or whole milk for a creamier soup)
dash of salt and pepper to taste
couple shakes of paprika
Garnish with chopped parsley.

1. In a large saucepan, saute onion and celery in butter over medium heat until tender.
2. Add flour, pepper, salt and paprika and stir until smooth.
3. Add broth, milk and potatoes, stirring constantly until it boils and thickens.
4. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
5. Stir in cheese and cooked broccoli and cook over low until cheese is melted and soup is heated through.
6. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
