Healthy dinner idea …  Cheesy & Creamy Potato Soup Recipe!

I was always curious why people loved soup.  I didn’t care for it much growing up, and even in my younger adult years, I didn’t care if I never had soup the rest of my life. That was until one day, soon after I was married, a co-worker brought a cheesy and creamy potato soup to a work party.  It was actually this creamy potato soup!  I’m not sure why my mother had never introduced me to creamy soups before!  I was hooked from day one.  I got her recipe (almost 25 years ago).

Since that day, I’ve made creamy potato soup with a variety of ingredients for my kids.  But this recipe is always the one my daughter (who is almost 18) asks me to make for every birthday or special occasion.  I’m hoping it will be one of your family’s new favorite dinners too!
