Very easy and deliciously creamy!

Wisconsin Cheese Soup I

Rating: 4.37 stars
Do not substitute diet or low fat cheese - it will not have the same rich, creamy texture and flavorful taste. Makes about 2 1/2 quarts soup.

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Rating: 4.69 stars
This truly is the most delicious stuff! A bit like a cross between corn souffle and a slightly sweet corn pudding! Try it, I know you will love the ease of preparation and especially the taste. Everyone always wants the recipe! Note: The ingredients can be doubled and baked in a 9x13 inch baking dish in almost the same amount of cooking time.

My mother won an award many, many years ago with this recipe in the Arizona Republic newspaper. I think it is delish and so different from a lot of other corn casseroles. Everybody I know asks for this recipe so I am giving it to everyone! Enjoy!
