Theresa's Potato Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Theresa in Chi-town

I came up with this very simple recipe after researching all different recipes and not liking EVERYTHING about any of them. So I just took the best things that I liked from a couple recipe's that looked good and tried it out. I came up with this VERY simple.. VERY good Potato Soup!It is nothing special.. so I hope that this doesn't duplicate anyone else's.... I've been making it and sharing this recipe for a couple years now..and it's always a keeper.
