Cheesy Creamy Broccoli Soup via Dottie


There must be a zillion cheesy broccoli soups out there.  I could never decide on which one to try, so didn't until...




Dottie, over here, at Family Plus Food Equals Love, started "Soupy Tuesday."  I told her I'd like a good cheesy broccoli soup recipe, and she delivered!

This is basically a rich cheese sauce, made with milk, instead of heavy cream; bits of broccoli, a little onion and garlic for extra flavor.  As a huge plus, it's "soup" in under 30 minutes; awesome for a homemade soup!




I can truly say this is a perfect cheesy broccoli soup, because I know what the "unperfect" ones taste like.  It's delicious, so rich and creamy ~ perfect for this time of year!  

It's sinfully delicious and just in time for soup season, thank you Dottie!


Cheesy Creamy Broccoli Soup
Printable recipe 

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons flour
2 cups milk
¾ pound (12-ounces) Velveeta cheese, cut into ½" cubes 
1 package (10-ounces) frozen broccoli florets, thawed and drained
1/8 teaspoon ground pepper
Salt to taste*

Method: 

Melt butter in large saucepan on medium heat.
Add onions and garlic, cook and stir 5 minutes or until onions are tender, do not burn garlic.
Add flour, cook 1 minute or until bubbly, stirring constantly.
Stir in milk.
Bring to boil, simmer on medium-low heat 1-3 minutes.
Add remainder of ingredients, stir well.
Cook 5-8 minutes or until Velveeta cheese is completely melted and soup is thick and heated through, stirring occasionally.
Pour into cups or bowls.
Serve

*Remember:  Cheese has salt, you can always add but it is hard to take out.  If it is too salty, add a potato, cut up into chunks, that will absorb the salt.



ENJOY!

  4. Pam, Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables... I even eat the stems raw. Broccoli and cheese soup is something that I frequently order when eating out. However, we've never tried making it at home. Thanks for the home cooking kick start! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

Tender and Delicious Italian-Style Baked Chicken Breasts

Are you in the mood for chicken tonight? If you are, here’s a great recipe for it!




Everyone seems to love chicken and there are several things I like about this recipe:  the ease of preparation, just a few simple ingredients and no sacrifice of the flavor because it is simple.  It tastes mmm mmm good! 
This dish is great for a weeknight meal or company also.  Just dip the chicken breasts into beaten eggs, coat them with the Parmesan bread crumb mixture, drizzle with the spicy, garlicky Robusto Italian dressing and pop them into the oven.  They come out baked to perfection, being fork tender.  I served it with rice and a crisp mesclun salad.

Succulent Slow-cooker Pork Loin in Gravy

It’s that time of year when I like pulling out the slow cooker and letting it cook dinner for us!

Thisslightly adapted recipe is from Trisha Yearwood’s Home Cooking cookbook.  Not only can she sing, she can evidently cook very well also.  Her cookbooks are filled with down-home simple recipes that would appeal to most anyone.  

We really like pork and I really like the slow-cooker, so this recipe is a win win!  It has the right mix of ingredients with its spicy rub, chicken broth, lemon juice and soy sauce.  The pork is fall apart tender and delicious Trisha says, “ Before I found this recipe, my attempts at cooking pork loin usually began with high hopes and ended with dry, overcooked meat.  The secret is the slow-cooking crockpot.  Spices in the rub get a chance to really flavor the loin, and it doesn’t dry out.  In fact, it’s so tender that it actually falls apart!” 



The singer/cook is right ~ it is scrumptious!  I hope you try it and like it as much as we do!

Bubba’s Winning Homemade Summer Sausage

You’re probably asking why would anyone bother to make their own summer sausage.  The reason is, because it is so very delicious!

The flavor of Bubba's home made sausage is much better than the store bought version, cheaper also and you know exactly what it consists of.  You control the ingredients ~ no added chemicals~ and flavor it as you like.  It reminds me of growing up on the farm with Dad making our own pork sausage, not similar to supermarket sausage at all.
Our older son, known as Bubba here on my blog, has been refining his summer sausage recipe and has hit on the exact proportions for it.   It's easy to pull together, it just takes time; requiring 5 days to cure.  

There is no casing involved.  Do not use a grade of ground beef with very low fat content as the result will be dry and crumbly.  Do not substitute any other salt for the Morton Tender Quick Cure ~ it is not the same thing!
It’s a great summer sausage that you just slice and serve with cheese and crackers or …









Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the treehouse; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape…
