Heavenly Broccoli & Cheese Soup

I made some homemade Broccoli & Cheese Soup this morning and I must say, it was HEAVENLY!! :o)

Below is the recipe so enjoy!

4 servings (I doubled my recipe)


1 tablespoon melted butter
1/2 medium onion ~ chopped
1/4 cup melted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups half-and-half cream
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 lb fresh broccoli
2 cloves of garlic
1 cup carrots, julienned
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
8 ounces grated sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper


1) Saute inion in 1 tablespoon butter. Set Aside.

2) Cook melted butter and flour using a whisk over medium heat for 3-5 minutes. Stir constantly and add the half-and-half

3) Add the chicken stock. Simmer for 20 minutes.

4) Add the broccoli, carrots, garlic, and onions. Cook over low heat for 20-25 minutes.

5) Add salt and pepper. Can be pureed in a blender but I like the chunkier broccoli. Return to heat and add cheese. Stir in nutmeg.

Annnndddd viola!! :o)

Did you know?

Cleaning the bathroom has never been fun, but it does not have to be dangerous. Did you know that when bleach comes into contact with stains it only destroys the molecules' ability to reflect light? So it's not getting rid of the dirt - it only turns it white. I stopped using bleach a long time ago, and wouldn't turn back. Wouldn't you rather use a product that is powered by 20 lemons to safely clean? Every family should know about it. In fact, if every family in North America that uses Lime-A-Way would switch to Tub & Tile we would also save 325,544 pounds of plastic every year!

No more opening the windows and having the vents going while cleaning. I don't miss those days at all! ;o)

Waking up on Tuesday....

The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live. ~ Flora Whittemore

With that being said, don't be afraid to open that door and see what's behind there. I took a chance and opened that door 2 1/2 years ago and found some AMAZING friends and an AWESOME Team. I was scared to death to see what was behind there but I am ever so thankful that I did!! :o)Are you going to open that door?

I hope y'all have an awesome Tuesday! :o)

Recession-Proof Your Business

With the economy in the way it is, we really do need to take precautions and have a backup plan. Our family has had our fair share of economy woes. We were prepared for emergencies, but that runs out. I now work from home and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE what I do. I am creating my "Plan B" and I think it's smart that we all create one. :o)

Here is an awesome Video by Robin Sharma!!

Have a great Hump Day!

Everything you know...

Everything you know is based on what has already happened in your life. And yet, your only influence right now is over things that have not yet happened. The things that have already happened have gotten you to where you are right now. What you need to be concerned with, however, is where to go from here.

Because you're so intimately familiar with your own past, it may seem that you have no choice but to continue moving in the same direction as before. But that is not true. Your future does not equal your past. Right now, there are an infinite number of paths which you can take. The one you're currently on is only one of them. Any of the rest are available to you.

If you're completely satisfied with where you're going, then by all means keep on going that way. But there is no reason in the world why you have to keep following that same path if it is not bringing you full and lasting fulfillment.

Every moment you have a choice, regardless of what has happened before. Choose right now to move forward, positively and confidently into your incredible future.
