Cream of Potato & Cheese Soup

"I first had something like this at school I liked it, so I went home and tried to make it myself, I have now perfected it. It's great as a starter or as a meal in itself."

  1. OMG LOVE LOVE LOVED IT. It was so good and creamy I will be making it again for sure
  2. Great stuff! It's rich and creamy and well-seasoned. I didn't mash the potatoes completely smooth. I used cornstarch instead of flour because it dissolves better. I'll be making this again; thanx for a delicious soup!
  3. This was a wonderful addition to our Christmas Eve Festivities. I omitted the onion due to allergies and did not have any thyme on hand. My father gave it rave reviews and he doesn't comment unless it is really good! I will add this to my Best of Zaar so Far recipe book. Thanks, KCShell


I am from Canada, and no, there are no igloos where I am from, as soon as the snow hits the ground, it turns into slush :) I love to cook, its a big hobby of mine, I tried to take up culinary arts but found that my passion is only contained to my kitchen and my imagination, however I did learn a few tricks :) I love any cook book. But my new all time fav is recipe zaar, WHAT ISNT delisious in here. I go to school, for child psychology and dream interpretations, two other passions of mine. If I had a month off, I would go see my best friend in the world, she is going to be a new mom :) :) well I guess thats all about me in a fast nut shell. Good eaten
