Broccoli Cheddar Soup! From the comfort of your own home! This soup reminds me so vividly of high school – of my friend Nellie finally getting her driver’s license, getting permission from our parents and dorm advisors to drive with her (boarding school!), and cruising to Panera Bread blasting the soundtrack to Rent.

We were absolutely obsessed with Broccoli Cheddar soup – served in a bread bowl, of course. These days I’ll settle for a slice of bread versus an entire bowl made out of bread, and I’ll make it at home versus heading to Panera, thank ya very much.
