nothing like homemade cream of broccoli soup February 28, 2008

On the way home today, I stopped by Flour Girls and Dough Boys in American Fork for a visit and walked out with good, hearty bread bowls. These things have a good weight to them, not like the air-filled things you find in most bakeries. What else to put in a bread bowl than cream of broccoli soup?

Delightful Tina from Flour Girls suggested to put the bread bowls in the oven to warm them up and make them soft again before serving. Tim made the incision and carved out the insides like pumpkins before filling them with thick, hearty soup.


The All Recipes cream of broccoli recipe we made got a whopping five stars on all the reviews I read, so naturally, I had to try it. (click here for the recipe!) The aroma itself is delicious and I am anxiously awaiting to consume it. Signing off!

Addendum: The Review

I am extremely full and completely satisfied. Next time you’re in the mood for a heartwarming winter meal, I highly recommend this simple and delicious recipe. Women, your boyfriend/partner/husband will praise you for it.

Though it’s only Wednesday, I feel in desperate need for a weekend, to turn off my mind and escape. It’s time to curl up in the living room with soft light, the fire place and Tim.

My new favorite place in Utah, besides my home, is Flour Girls and Dough Boys Bakery in American Fork.

After driving past their sign every day for weeks, I stopped in one day when craving a cinnamon roll and was astounded. The aroma is evident the moment you walk in the room, the barrage of beautiful pasteries and breads to behold, and the warm, genuine people behind the counter are outstanding. Needless to say, I have been back every week since.

Yesterday, I had some time before picking up Tim and stopped in to chill at the cafe. The girls, Kelly and Tina, were delightful and we had a pleasant chat as I was paying for my pumpkin chocolate bar with cream cheese frosting. I snuggled up in the corner next to the fire with a Real Simple magazine and my delicious pumpkin bar. Next thing I know I hear my name and Kelly is coming towards me with a cup of almond and raspberry steaming milk on the house! Then Tina comes to check on the flavor – what incredible consideration. My visit to the cafe made a great afternoon extraordinary.
