Recipe Time: Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheese Soup

Fall has arrived...and so has the season of soup!  It is so comforting to be able to come home after a long, cold day and wrap yourself up in your softest, cozy blanket and sink yourself into your plush couch and enjoy a large bowl of warm soup. And it doesn’t get much better than having dinner basically ready and waiting for you when you get home. Who doesn’t love a good slow cooker dish? This soup is amazingly easy, it’s incredibly delicious and hearty and it’s perfectly cheesy. This is definitely a new slow cooker favorite for me. Enjoy!
