Fall is my favorite season- boots, jeans, football, cooler weather, and SOUP. I found a recipe for Roasted Cauliflower and Aged White Cheddar Soup on Pinterest and decided to try it.  I actually hate cauliflower, but this soup may have changed my mind. It tastes like a fancy soup, so it will impress guests. In reality, it’s very easy and you use only basic ingredients. There’s not much to it, but it combines in just the right way. There’s not one ingredient that overpowers the other.
