Broccoli Cheese Soup

This is probably my favorite soup recipe that I have. I love a homemade soup recipe. No canned soup can compete with this one, and most restaurants fall short of this broccoli cheese soup recipe. I love to sit on the couch after a long day of being productive and have a warm soup. It is sure to warm your soul. This soup is good served with Saltine crackers. This is my first recipe that I am sharing with the internet, and this one means the most to me. Enjoy!
