  • Very delightful yummy soup. I've made it twice already, as your potato soup. I've shared your website with my coworkers.

  • Very good recipe, my son and his girlfriend showed up while I was making this and they ate almost all of it. I will be making another batch tonight since everyone liked it so much.

  • This recipe is delicious and soooo easy. I have substituted the broccoli with cauliflower, asparagus or leeks for a change and they are great too. I even made a seafood chowder with your recipe as the base. Yummy.

  • I was looking for recipes to use up leftover ham. This soup is delicious and incredibly easy! My family loves it. Thanks for creating a terrific website.

  • Very good! I left out the ham and pureed it all and it went down my poor sore throat wonderfully!

  • Very good! I substituted the milk with half and half, made it a little more richer. Anxious to try same recipe with broccole and cauliflower. Thanks so much, looking forward for more of your recipes.


  • I always took pride in the soups I make, but this one stands alone, a good soup for the cold damp Winters in Michigan.

  • I made this soup several times last winter, and when I looked for the recipe today, I couldn't find it!! I was completely PANICKED!!! It took me 2 hours to find you again , but I was bound and determined, because it is such a good,easy,and flavorful soup. I've printed it out ,this time, and added it to my favorites folder,AND e-mailed to myself!!Thanks!!

  • A great recipe. I've made it several times and enjoyed it. It is simmering in the kitchen as I write. Thank you for this blessing. I even make it without the ham and substitute skim milk for the heavy whipping cream... not as rich but still delicious helping me to watch calories.
