"I followed the recipe exactly-once for Christmas Day, the next time for New year's Eve. Both times it was a big hit, with people asking how I made it. I added some frozen fruit icecubes & I made sure the Golden Circle fruit juice packs & soft drink bottles were in the freezer for a while before I made them, so that they were-not frozen of course-but icy cold. There were a few slivers of ice in the fruit juice actually. Very easy to make, liked by just about everyone. Good recipe to have." - sherri3802

"Thank you for posting this recipe. My boyfriend was diagnosed with cancer and had half of his tongue surgically removed last July. He finished chemo and radiation 4 months ago. This is the first thing he was able to eat with ease and enjoy at the same time." - bop102007

"Awesome Broccoli-Cheese Casserole Recipe and Video - My mom used to make this easy recipe every Thanksgiving when I was little. We kids could never get enough! It was our very favorite Thanksgiving vegetable. If you have children, or have some coming to visit you as guests this Thanksgiving, I guarantee that they will eat (and enjoy) this veggie dish! Even though I rarely cook with canned condensed soups, I still make this yummy broccoli casserole during the holiday season. It's fabulous with a Christmas ham and potatoes au gratin too. (Note: Be sure to use sharp Cheddar cheese for a nice full flavor.) Mmmmmmm!" - chef john

Happy cooking...
