Several times I have attempted to make dinners from recipes I've found online and all of those several times I have failed miserably. So much so, that once Andrew and I actually threw the food out after eating a few bites. But I took a risk this week and decided to try to make a recipe that claimed to be the same as Panera's broccoli and cheddar soup (my current food addiction). Maybe it was the soup weather, or maybe I just got lucky, but it turned out pretty awesome. I used this recipe with one modification, I didn't puree the soup at any point. It just seemed like something else that would dirty more dishes and take more time. Besides, the broccoli got so soft that there really didn't seem to be any need for it.
