  1. I LOVE that today's Tasty Tuesday recipe is potato soup! It's on my menu for tomorrow night, but I was unhappy with my recipe that I tried last! I am definitely doing this one tomorrow! Thanks so much!!!

  2. YUMMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That looks so scrumptious! I've made one similar, but this one looks even better!

    Love, Traci @ Ordinary Inspirations

  3. Potato soup…mmmm. I found a recipe last fall that was ok, but this one looks much better. I will be putting it on my menu very soon!

  4. Looks delicious ~Will definitely be trying this recipe. We love potato soup. I'm thankful it uses regular, common ingredients.

  5. We're mainly vegetarian here (about 90%). This recipe is the perfect "rare meat" recipe for us. LOVE the flavor of bacon. Will use half the bacon in this recipe and save the other half for my yummy breakfast casserole (which we eat for dinner with fresh fruit and yogurt topped with some ground flax seed). My next week's meal planning just got easier. 😉 THANKS!
    Blessings,

  6. So, do you add everything and cook in the skillet that you fried the bacon? The recipe reads like that, but I don't think my skillet would be big enough.

    Thanks, I can't wait to try this 🙂

  7. Hi Ladies! So glad you like the recipe! I made this a couple of weeks ago and am wishing I had a bowl right now!!! Graciously Y- You can certainly make this in a pot if you don't have a skillet that is deep/wide enough…simply saute the veggies at the bottom of the pot and add the rest! Cooking for the King, Janelle

  8. That looks so good! I have a potato soup recipe that I haven't made in awhile, but this looks even better with the bacon and lots of veggies!

  9. I love that you have veggies in this recipe! I haven't made potato soup in forever, and mine is certainly nothing to get excited about!

  10. Oh YUM!!! That looks so good. And it reminds me of bean soup, which is one of my favorite. I think it's made almost the same way, except that you add a lot of yellow beans to it. Man, I'm hungry for that soup now.

  11. Thanks Ladies, Enjoy! It's so refreshing to know you are serving your families in this way..if you ever have questions with a recipe, let me know. Also, to the ladies out there who are not "comfortable in the kitchen" know that there is no condemnation with the Lord. Let's work together -I know you can do this.(anyone up to teaching me how to sew? lol) Much love to you! Janelle

  12. Hi Janelle,

    This recipe looks wonderful! I am vegetarian so I'll make it without the bacon and see how it turns out!

    I do have a question- what is the tool you used to dice the veggies so perfectly? I use this thing called a Vidalia Chop which I love, but I don't know what to replace it with if it breaks! 🙂

    Thank you 🙂

  13. Hi Laura! I use an "Alligator" ! It is a simple 2 part mechanism that is easy to use and clean. I am on the look out for a slicer…if you find a good one let me know!

  14. I made the soup yesterday for dinner. My husband loved it. I didn't have any celery or chives on hand and I only had 7 redskin potatoes, but it still tasted great! It made enough for a bowl for me, two bowls for my husband and one ladle full each for four of my young children.(they are not big eaters!)My husband said he would like it with more broth so next time I'm going to double the milk and chicken broth! Thanks for sharing the recipe on Raising Homemakers!

  15. Looks delish! I must ask – what gadget did you use to chop the onion? I've been doing it the old fashioned way for years…am I missing out on something? 🙂
    I saw that you commented about learning to sew. I've been doing it for years and I love it. You should take a beginners class at JoAnn Fabrics. It's not hard – it just takes some practice to get going.

  16. HI Tina!
    I use something called an "alligator" it is a very easy and useful gadget!
    My sweet husband bought me a sewing machine from Jo-anns and lessons came with it..I went to 1 lesson. I came home and got so flustered with the bobber! I made one burp cloth. Perhaps one day! I admire women who can sew!!! What a wonderful gift.

  17. I am not sure if it is too late for comments, but this looks wonderful and I would LOVE to make it for dinner tonight, but I am not sure how many it will feed. We have a family of 8 (and some of us eat alot) I would LOVE input from those of you who have made it 🙂 Thanks

    -Christina
