Broccoli Cheese Soup

My former neighbor, “Eric’s mom” said this recipe came from “a restaurant” but she never said which one (or if she did, it was one I didn’t go to so the name escapes me).  I don’t know if she means it was a copycat recipe or what, but it’s very tasty and easy to make (so I doubt it’s legit — do restaurants make this quantity of soup?).  My family has tried several recipes for this kind of soup and this one has stuck with us.
