Mother's Potato Soup

 Mother's Potato Soup
MANY of our family-favorite recipes came from my mother-in-law, who was a wonderful cook. My husband inherited her love of cooking, and he enjoys stirring up her recipes, including this fabulous soup. We've often treated our friends to this dish, and one young man even asked for the recipe when he went off to college. —Louella Kightlinger
