Easy recipe for SLOW COOKER Broccoli Cheese and Potato Soup! This family favorite soup is cooked on high in the crockpot for 4 hours!
Slow Cooker Potato Soup
The end of November brought cold weather and rainy days. Because of the added layers to stay warm and the drizzle of rain it also brought a laziness to the dinner table. I’ve been stuck in a dinner rut the last few weeks making easy and quick meals. It usually gets to dinner time and we’re both too tired to really think of anything new so it’s something simple.

Leftover Stuffing Recipe
Are you asking yourself “What to do with leftover stuffing?”? This is one of my favorite dishes to make with leftover stuffing! No matter what stuffing you have, just follow the recipe and add your own stuffing! It makes for a great casserole a few days after Thanskgiving when you’re sick of turkey!
What’s one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving? No, not the pumpkin cream pie. And no, not watching A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. Although I love both of those. My favorite is…..
Oh baby, I love leftovers!
It’s like Thanksgiving for a week straight! Each night is turkey in new ways, mashed potatoes on the side and plenty of vegetables. One night it’s turkey sandwiches covered in homemade gravy. The next night is Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday again. And then comes the casseroles.
What do do with leftover stuffing?
This Cheesy Broccoli Stuffing Casserole is my favorite Stove Top Stuffing Recipes! Not only does it make a perfect side dish for holiday meals, bu it’s the ultimate leftover meal using a bunch of stuffing. And what else do I love about leftovers? Saving money. Thanksgiving dinner is great because it’s literally 1 meal that feeds you for the next week.
This casserole besides being cheesy and delicious and mouthwatering and made of dreams (I like it, ok!) only has a few ingredients. There’s stuffing, frozen corn and broccoli, cream of chicken soup, white rice and cheese.

Not only is there broccoli in here but we also add in our favorite sugar snap peas. The peas aren’t cooked so they supply a nice crunch which screams Summer!

It’s the perfect side dish for the holidays because it’s cheesy and delicious and only takes 5 minutes to prepare, 25 minutes to bake.
Before we know it the holidays will be here and we’ll be planning our dinner menu with friends and family. I wanted to share with you one of my favorite holiday casserole dishes that I think you’ll like because it’s super easy to make and is pure comfort food. The casserole only has 4 ingredients: mashed potatoes, broccoli, cheese and crackers. Who doesn’t love those ingredients? I was serious when I said this was comfort food. It only takes 5 minutes to prepare, 25 minutes to bake. What you’re left with is a cheesy delicious casserole that will make everyone at the dinner table happy, including you because it hardly took any work to make!
The dish is easy to make as it’s just 4 level steps. First you spread out the mashed potatoes. Next comes the broccoli on top. Then sprinkle your cheese. Finally, add your crumbled up crackers.
Crustless Quiche with Broccoli and Cheese is a easy dinner recipe your family is going to love. Instead of the traditional pie crust, you use kale to line the bottom of the casserole dish. Sprinkled mozzarella cheese on top makes it extremely cheesy! It’s the perfect way to sneak in veggies!
“This is one of the best meals you ever made” said my husband Matthew eating this quiche while eyeing up the last piece in the casserole dish. I thought I’d post this first because if my meat loving husband can fall in love with this Broccoli Quiche made on top of kale leaves, then I think that’s the only review I need!
This quiche is filled with broccoli and kale. The broccoli is the main contents of the quiche while the kale acts as the pie crust. I was really craving a quiche but I didn’t have any pie crust and I wasn’t in the mood to make a homemade one so the sudden idea of using kale leaves to lie in the bottom of the casserole dish as a crust popped into my mind. I have to say this might be one of my most genius kitchen ideas to date because it worked beautifully.
Crustless Quiche Recipe
The kale turns a bit crusty while holding in all the contents of the quiche. I was worried that the wet ingredients would fall through the kale leaves but this quiche is not wet or soggy at all. The eggs bake perfectly. The cheese melts perfectly. When cutting it into slices it all holds together perfectly just like if you used a pie crust, but you didn’t and you saved yourself some calories.
Cheesy Vegetable Omelette is packed with garden fresh vegetables! This breakfast recipe is easy to make and shows you how to make a perfect cheesy omelette step by step! The best part is that you can customize it what veggies you have – my favorite are tomatoes, broccoli and peppers to add in!
I call this recipe “Vegetable Farm Omelette” because you can throw into it as man veggies as you can fit. The omelette can be tweaked depending on the season. It needs to become best friends with your garden or farmer’s market. I threw broccoli, tomatoes and peppers in mine because those are my favorites (and what’s always in my fridge). I think this combo of veggies are a winner, but feel free to add in onions or carrots or chopped up spinach or kale to make your omelette more “you”.
There’s a few keys to a perfect omelette. You need a good egg recipe. You need to have the right size pan. You need to know when’s the exact time to flip one side over. I’m here to help you with all of this.
Ready to make a life changing Vegetable Farm Omelette? Let’s go!
First, cut up your veggies. You want to cut them pretty small. If the vegetables are too big your omelette might fall apart and we don’t want that. This is about a tablespoon of tomatoes, green pepper and a handful of broccoli. If some of it doesn’t fit, that’s ok, you can just throw it on the omelette when you serve it.

So Broccoli and Macaroni and Cheese was the only way to go. But with comfort food, I want it quick. That way I don’t have to get out of my warm blanket for more time. I could wear my pink house robe while cooking to stay warm, but trust me, noone wants to see that.
AMAZING Chinese Pepper Beef Cubes – this easy to make Chinese recipe is tasty and will have your family begging for it! Serve beef and vegetables over white rice for a healthy authentic Chinese meal!
Do you have a favorite Chinese dish? I’m a big fan of Chinese soups (like salted pork and cabbage), Chicken and Broccoli and I’m always down for Lo Mein. One thing I always love in my dishes is a ton of vegetables covered in that delicious Chinese sauce they always smoother them in. It doesn’t matter if it’s peppers, broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts or something else, I can’t say no to a yummy vegetable.
Right now being Winter I am craving fresh vegetables. I am missing the green pepper overload from the garden. I can’t wait to pick broccoli in the Spring. Thankfully we still have enough carrots left from Fall so I have those to survive on. Over the weekend it was freezing (literally). The wind was harsh, my knees were shaking and my gloves didn’t feel like they were doing much of anything. One thing I craved when I got home was a warm fresh meal, something that would take me out of the Winter blues.
The coldness suddenly hit last weekend. One week it was fine with a thin sweater, then suddenly it’s tights, long sweater, winter coat and hat.
One thing that comes with the Winter is lack of fresh fruits and vegetables. For us, the garden will still be growing a few vegetables under greenhouses, but there will be no peas, no corn and no carrots. Farmers markets will be closed, or only selling hearty greens. Grocery stores will have vegetables, but they won’t taste fresh as they’ve been shipped and prices will raise. You’ll suddenly see raspberries for $7 instead of the $1.50 you were paying in June. Oh and corn on the cob? If you’re in a cold location, good luck seeing it until next Summer.
So how do you get your vegetables during the Winter? Here’s what I suggest, frozen vegetables!
Today we’re going to give a makeover to our favorite childhood sandwich, The Grilled Cheese.
As a kid I would beg my Mom to make Grilled Cheese sandwiches for lunch and dinner. When I wasn’t asking her to make them, I was ordering them at the diner served alongside a big spoonful of mashed potatoes. Did you ever have grilled cheese and mashed potatoes? It’s the perfect combo, especially if there’s a bunch of gravy poured over your potatoes.
One night we were craving something different for dinner but wanted to use up some fresh broccoli we picked that was growing under the greenhouse. After a quick broccoli roast, these sandwiches were made and enjoyed… very quickly! Immediately after finishing his Matthew said “I want another!”. Me too man, me too.
I love it!
I also love the comments that the Chicken and Broccoli recipe gets. Nothing makes me happier seeing a new comment that someone made it for dinner and loved it. It makes my Chinese Takeout loving heart so happy!
So after I completed the Chicken and Broccoli recipe I had one more on my “Must Master” list. That was General Tso’s Chicken. How do they make it so good? How does the sauce stay on so well? How do you keep the chicken crispy with the sauce? How do you get a hint of spice? I must have tried to make this dish a million times (ok not that much, but you get the idea) and every time it just didn’t turn out right. Then finally I got it! It was a beautiful moment. I cheered, I cried, I ate it, I made it again and ate more. I love this General Tso’s Chicken! Finally… you can have the takeout version at home! No wok required!
Chicken and Broccoli In White Sauce is a savory Asian recipe that uses a creamy sauce. Your family will fall in love with it!
Do you love chicken and broccoli as much as I do? Goodness, I just love it. This is the chicken and broccoli recipe I love dearly and I have gotten such nice comments, emails and messages about it – I’m so glad you love it as much as I do!
I was in Chinatown a few weeks ago where I was feeling hungry after acupuncture so I ran across the street to a shop called “Excellent Dumpling House”. There I got some Chinese takeout goodies to go, along with a amazing pork dumpling. While I was waiting for my order to be done so many people came in and ordered the Chicken and Broccoli in White Sauce. My eyes rose every time someone ordered it, I had never heard of this at a Chinese restaurant. So I did what everyone else would do, I took out my phone and begun googling furiously.
In the next week, something was telling me to make this dish. I received not one, but two completely random comments and email asking me if I had a Chicken and Broccoli in White Sauce recipe. Can you believe that? First in line, then real life questions. It’s like I was meant to make this.
This is a great dish that is creamy and full of yummy vegetables (hello broccoli, sugar snap peas and carrots). It’s more rich than your usual Chicken and Broccoli due to the sauce which is made with heavy cream and Parmesan cheese.
Next time you’re in the mood for Chicken and Broccoli, give this dish a shot, I hope you enjoy!
This Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup recipe is a family favorite! I love serving it as comfort food on a cold night! This soup is made with broccoli, carrots and Velveeta cheese!
Broccoli Cheese Soup
Do you know how much I love this Creamy Cheese Broccoli Soup? I made it for dinner on Friday. Then I made it again on Sunday. And now I’m thinking when should I have it again.
Broccoli Cheese Soup Ingredients:
You will need:
broccoli (frozen or fresh)
This soup has all the good stuff in it. There’s cheese and milk to make it creamy, then there’s broccoli, carrots and corn to make it a vegetable dream. The soup is incredibly creamy and if you serve it with a piece of bread, you have a perfect dinner.
Velveeta Broccoli Cheese Soup
Velveeta cheese in my opinion makes the most creamiest soups, so whenver I can cut up a loaf of Velveeta, I’m in! You will need a 8 ounce block of cheese for this recipe, to cut up and add to the soup!
This soup only takes 20 minutes to make, with a few minutes to prepare, making it a deliciou 30 minute and under dinner recipe!
With every spoonful you get a good serving of vegetables covered in creamy cheese sauce.
I hope you enjoy this Creamy Broccoli Cheese Soup!

Authentic Chinese Chicken and Broccoli Recipe
I have been trying to perfect a takeout restaurant version of chicken and broccoli for many years. I was close but the broccoli was never perfectly crunchy, the sauce was too thick, the sauce was too thin, the taste was off. But finally, finally! I shake my fist at you chinese chicken and broccoli recipe because I did it!
It was a great moment sitting down at dinner to eat this and hear the cheers from both my and Matthew’s mouths. It’s really good. I don’t think I can ever order takeout again if I know it’s this easy (and much more healthier) to make at home.
If you love Chinese Takeout Chicken and Broccoli, you will love this recipe!
How to Make Chicken and Broccoli
Oh garden greens, I love you. I picked some fresh broccoli, green peppers and sugar snap peas. You can omit the sugar snap peas if you want to, but I would highly recommend keeping them in. It gives it a great additional crunch!
You want your chicken to be cut up into bite size pieces, and then you let them marinate for a bit until you are ready to move on to the next step with them.
This is the magic sauce that holds everything together. It’s the sauce I have fought with to get just right. It was a glorious moment!
The sauce turned out so well due to these 3 great ingredients. I’ve really come to love sesame oil in cooking the past few years. PS. Make sure you use low sodium or lite soy sauce, we want to cut back on the salt in this recipe.
And when it’s all done you will have one beautiful skillet full of chicken and broccoli.
Dive right in, this CHINESE TAKEOUT Chicken and Broccoli is delicious!

We’ve harvested alot of broccoli this season. Every single plant produced a beautiful big head of broccoli. You guys know I love broccoli already, but do you know I love macaroni and cheese too? Macaroni and cheese is a comfort food and it holds dear memories of my father making me dinner every single day he was home from work during high school. He knew I loved that mac and cheese so he made it once a week, I was a very happy girl. Thanks Dad!
So what happens when you mix comfort food with happy harvest? You get one of my favorite broccoli dishes: Baked Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese. I love macaroni and cheese of all sorts. I’m fine with the box, I’m super fine with homemade. I’m fine with it made with cheese that comes in a foil package (Where my Velveeta fans at?), I’m super fine with a baked version. This recipe is a in between, yes it’s baked, but the inside of the dish is still soft and cheesy and gooey. It’s just perfect, the best of both worlds.
So if you like mac and cheese and you like broccoli, this dish is for you!
