It is just so creamy and delicious and my husband and kids just devour it! So I thought with winter in full swing I would share this yummy recipe. Here it is!

    This looks really good and I'm glad it doesn't have a lot of ingredients. So many recipes have so many ingredients it makes it really expensive to make it.

    Everyone around here has either a cold or the flu or just a case of the Winter Blues... So since this sound like a quick and easy comfort food recipe - I tried making it - and it was quite good! I did make a couple of changes - the main one being that instead of using frozen broccoli - I used a bag of (combo) broccoli and cauliflower florets AND also I did have enough milk so I substituted canned evaporated low fat milk - to my surprise it worked really well. And finally, since I also didn't have quite enough Velveeta cheese - I also used some grated GOUDA (!!!) cheese! The result was delcious and everyone LOVED it - including me (the most fussy eater among us...) Lol :- ) Thanks!
