Soup is good food, but Broccoli Cheese Soup is great food! As a kid I used to run around our house singing/screaming that slogan from the Campbell's Soup commercials. That just may be one of the silly things kids do, but in my case the sentiment really stuck as I still adore soup. When it's cold outside, few things make me feel as good as the smell emanating from a steaming bowl of heart warming soup.
I'm sure many have been the times when you've still been so hungry after finishing a good bowl of soup that you say you could even eat the bowl. Well, have you ever had soup in a bread bowl? The first time I experienced it was as a kid at my aunt's house in Louisville and it just seemed so creative to me. The concept of having your meal in an edible bowl can really be magical for a young eater, as I recently found out when I presented my son and daughter each with their own bread bowls filled to the brim with soup.
Leave it to the magnificent, multi-talented, exceedingly beautiful inside and out, giving, and loving Ree Drummond to develop this Broccoli Cheddar Soup recipe made with sharp cheddar cheese lusciousness, chunks of soft broccoli and truly satisfying taste for all ages. Reviving a wonderful food memory from my past, she even serves it up in my beloved bakery fresh bread bowl.
My kids are huge fans of Ree's food and her children's books about her bassett hound Charlie and as they were flipping through her brilliant new cookbook, The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year's Worth of Holidays, I let them pick a few recipe ideas for dinner. This soup is the one they mutually decided on, although they made me promise to also make them the dulce de leche brownies, pecan pie and brandy snaps in the next few weeks (what can I say, they've got good taste).
Oh how Kenya and Chloe love the pictures of the food and all the animals on the farm!
