My Bloomin’ Pen Pocket stitches quickly in a 5×7 hoop and wraps snugly around Kimberbell’s Experience the Joy Bullet JournalWrite a recipe to share on the front page, then slip a new pen into the pocket! Here’s a versatile recipe that should be in every bullet journal or recipe book: Cream of Comfort Soup. This creamy soup base is delicious for your favorite veggies, including cauliflower, broccoli, carrots, celery, potatoes, and more! (You can even add a little bacon or ham.) 🙂

Cream of Comfort Soup


4 Tbsp. butter
1/2 cup flour
2 cups Half & Half (or canned milk)
3 oz. cream cheese
4 cups milk
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
Grated cheese (optional)
Whatever veggies you’d like!


  1. In a heavy saucepan, melt butter and stir in flour until roux forms.
  2. Add Half & Half, cream cheese, and milk (do not boil). Whisk until well blended.
  3. Cook whatever vegetables you’ve chosen (sometimes I just use a California mix of carrots, cauliflower, and broccoli) and then combine with the sauce.
  4. Salt and pepper to taste and garnish with grated cheese.
  5. Enjoy!
