Broccoli Cheddar Soup
Very Good 4.3/5
(3 ratings)

This has always been my Family's favorite - and requested still for family get together's years later. This makes a family size soup pot. Add water to make 8 - 2 cup servings. Can easily be modified using healthier soups, this is all I had. You can also add more or less milk or water to make your soup thinner or creamier to your liking. Adding a baguette or roll and salad makes a great meal with this soup.

Nothing satisfies like potatoes, especially these crunchy, browned, herb-crusted potato wedges. They're great with ketchup, fat-free sour cream, or all by themselves!

Roasted Red Potatoes & Zucchini
Very Good 4.5/5
(4 ratings)

Good side dish for potato lovers that need to try and incorporate some more green veggies. I used dry dill because it is what I had. You can use fresh as well. Probably tastes better. Use seasonings to taste. Just had to add them in to the ingredients for a more accurate calorie count. Also, I used this recipe as 2 servings with my meal because I had no other side dishes. If you have other sides, you could break this up into 3 or 4 servings.
