Broccoli Cheese Soup {Healthy and Easy}

One more soup, before we head for spring? Despite my public affection for kale, broccoli was probably my first green veggie love. When I was young, my brother and I would split the broccoli duties: I would eat the florets, and he would take the stalk. Don't take this to mean we got along, this is just how we got through dinner.

Treats for Tazewell: Chicken Broth Coins

Chicken Broth Coins - Dog Treats

This week was a total blur. To rehash just a sampling of the goings-on: lots on tap at work, full social calendar, and - surprise! - a new indoor wading pool appeared in my apartment!

Black Bean + Bacon Soup

Black Bean + Bacon Soup-5
