Erin's Cheesy Broccoli Soup
I made some modifications and certainly, feel with those it's a 5-star. First, I melted the butter in a large pan, then sauted onion, minced celery, grated carrot, garlic and shallot, as I think this was the main reason for the flavor, without it, I think it would be lacking. I then added some white pepper and salt. After the veggies softened, I added only about 2 or 2 1/2 T flour, which ended up being plenty to thicken this. I like the idea of dry mustard, but did not have any on hand or would have added it. I whisked in the milk, slowly till well combined. I then added in the cooked broccoli that I had cooked in vegetable stock. I then pureed this a bit with an immersion blender. I then added the softened (room temp) cream cheese (only used about 4 oz) and whisked that in. I added the cheddar cheese (more like 1 1/2 cups) and stirred to melt it. I had reserved a bit of the cooked broccoli and chopped it small, to add some texture to the soup, which was really nice. I served this in mini bread bowl, big hit with the kids, for fun-factor! The base idea of this recipe is really good, mostly because it does not call for process cheese food or to add a can of 'cream of something' soup, but is much more HOMEMADE.

Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff I
I used a chuck roast that I cut up. I floured and browned the meat slightly (in vegetable oil) before adding to the slow cooker. I used 2 cans of the soup and added a good 1 cup of beef broth instead of water. I used cream cheese and sour cream at the end. I also added some fresh mushrooms (without saute first) to the last hour of cooking and they added nicely to the dish.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
Used Chicken sausage and fresh spinach and fresh mushrooms since I didn't have a zucchini on hand. Used vegetable broth instead of beef. Added one small can of diced tomatoes in place of the fresh ones and omitted the tomato sauce to have a more 'broth' consistency. Also added fresh garlic and skipped the red wine, just added a little water instead. Soup was very tasty served with some grated pecorino cheese. Easy and quick to make and very hearty meal!
