Broccoli Potato Cheddar Soup ♥

My longtime recipe for homemade broccoli cheese soup, substantial enough for supper, light enough for lunch. It is rich and savory yet not fat with empty calories. Lots of fresh broccoli makes it all come alive. The spices build a flavor layer that other broccoli cheese soups just don't have. Gorgeous color! Fresh & Seasonal, Especially for Fall, Winter and Cold-Weather Meals. Pretty Color. Great for Meal Prep. Weight Watchers Friendly. Easily Made Gluten Free, Low Carb, Vegetarian or Vegan. Rave Reviews.

Potato Soup ♥ Lighter & Healthier with Cauliflower

Today's plain-looking but delicious potato soup, it's quick, it's easy but it's also lighter and healthier. It's made from scratch with leftover baked potato and leftover cauliflower puréed in the blender for extra creaminess without cream or sour cream or other high-fat ingredients. Sound good? You bet! Lighter & Healthier. Lower-Carb & Lower-Cal. Homemade Comfort Food. Perfect for Cold Weather. Great for Meal Prep. Weeknight Easy. Naturally Gluten Free.

Pumpkin Bars ♥

Quick and easy pumpkin bars, moist and filled with fall spices. These simple bars are a fall favorite in my kitchen, just a thin layer of cake topped with a thin-thin layer of icing. The icing isn't really necessary although a little drizzle adds a sweet counterpoint that many people like. Celebrate the glory that is October! PS All that thinness? And only 100 calories per square? More cause for celebration. Real Food, Fresh & Seasonal. Just One Bowl + Pantry Ingredients. Budget Friendly. Little Effort, Big Taste. Weeknight Easy, Weekend Special. Rave Reviews.
