Time for another Blogger's Choice swap, hosted by A Taste of Home Cooking. Blogger's Choice is when I'm assigned another cooking blog and I can choose any recipe I want to make. I received Kate's Recipe Box, which in the past has brought you tasty recipes like Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies and Cranberry Apple Chutney.
We opt in to these swaps, and have two weeks to make our recipes. More than enough time, right? Except with the flurry of last-minute shopping, wrapping and baking, I totally forgot. I had glanced through her recipe index when I first received my assignment, intending to make a new cookie recipe, or something for Christmas dessert.
So, here it was two days before the post was due, and I hadn't even chosen a recipe yet. I was completely cookie'd out (I know -- who thought THAT was possible??). It was cold, and sleeting. I wanted soup.
Kate just happened to have a recipe in her blog for Broccoli Cheddar Soup, which is what I get every time I go to Panera Bread. She doesn't claim that it's a copy of the Panera soup, and it definitely doesn't have the same taste or texture, so if that's what you're after, you might want to keep looking. However, it was still delicious, very quick and easy to put together, and very satisfying.
