I have to give credit to my mom for this delicious cheesy cauliflower soup recipe. She made it for Sunday dinner a couple months ago, and the whole family agreed that it has a really wonderful flavor.

In fact, I find that I really crave this cauliflower soup recipe and have been making it every couple of weeks since I had it for the first time! I’m sure to swipe all of my mom’s best recipes and I hope that my little girl enjoys my food to be a recipe-thief someday, herself. Passing on family favorite recipes is such a wonderful way to carry on the legacy of your loved ones!
