    I just made this soup and it brought back memories of FNES 101. It’s sooooo good. Thanks for sharing. Although I will admit I did add extra cheese.

      Miss you guys! What a great class, this is where we discovered this remember? I’ve been making it ever since, I tweaked it a bit. With more cheese :c)

    Tried the cauliflower soup and loved it! Didn’t change anything in the recipe. I will be trying your chocolate cookies over the weekend too.
