I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Creamy Avocado and Broccoli Soup

Eat your greens!

And don't waste those broccoli stems. Once you've trimmed the florets from your broccoli for dinner, save the stems. You can even stick them in the freezer until you have enough to use.

2 avocados
1 medium onion, diced
3 cups sliced broccoli stems
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1  1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp lime juice
2 cups 10% table cream
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp salt
Pepper to taste

Heat onion and garlic in olive oil until translucent. Add broth and chopped broccoli stems and cook until tender. Add mashed avocado and lime juice and simmer 5 minutes.

Add cream and seasonings and blend in a food processor.

Taste and adjust seasonings to your taste.

Makes 6 cups
