Nothing tastes better on a cold winters night than a scrumptious hot soup.  This potato soup I have made for years and it is always a hit with everyone who tries it!  It is flavorful, but not real spicy.  It makes a great dinner for someone who is sick or a new mother.  I have packed up the soup, a baguette, bacon bits (real of course!) and some sharp cheddar and voila! The recipient has a wonderful meal.  Kids also love this soup.. so even those picky ones usually will chow down.   Wish I could take credit for creating this soup, but like so many recipes.. this one was passed down from my Aunt Carolyn.  I have altered it a touch but not much.. why mess with perfection!

I have a feeling you will love it!
