This is very good. I found that my mashed potatoes kept sinking to the bottom of the pot, so be sure to stir often! Love potato soup, and this was no exception. A bit thinner than most, but the taste is excellent! Thanks for sharing! Made for Went to the Market Tag game.

I really can't imagine why this hasn't already been but I'm glad I made it. This is so simple to make that it really shouldn't taste this good, lol. I made it just by the recipe and love it so much that it going right into my Favorites of 2013 cookbook. This soup delivers a great flavor and textural enjoyment with very few ingredients that I usually have on hand. It's smooth, creamy and very satisfying. I did add a few red pepper flakes to the top of my soup for some color interest and I liked the bit of heat they added. This one is a keeper. Made for Nif's win in the Hidden Treasure Bonus of the February Sun and Spice Event. Thanks for playing with us Nif. :D
