Broccoli Cheddar Soup

It’s been a while since I have posted recipes, but trust me, I have been busy making amazing food for my family and clients. I have several posts waiting in the wings. I chose this recipe to start out the year because it’s easy, delicious and a winter comfort food. A new favorite for my ten year old. Make this soup this week. The recipe is for 2 but can easily be doubled. Enjoy!
