"I was pleasantly surprised by how good this was for being so quick and simple and not loaded down with cheese. I used 1 cup of half and half and 2 cups of 1% milk instead of the whole milk because that was what I had on hand. I also added 1 teaspoon of chicken bouillon and 1 extra potato because I like to mash my potatoes a little bit to make the soup thicker. Turned out perfectly."

"Very simple yet tasty soup! Made a double batch as written but felt it it needed a bit more depth so just added a bouillon cube and it was perfect. My family loved it. Served it with optional bacon bits and shredded cheddar. Perfect with salad and homemade baguette. Will be making this again!"

"This soup was better than I expected, and better then the restaurants. It is great by itself, soup and salad night, or accompanying steak/pork chops. This is a keeper."

"I love that I can get varied recipes for foods some of which I enjoyed as a child, but had now way of knowing how to cook. Does anyone have a recipe for old fashioned sweet potato pone? My Grandmother fixed this when I was a child and now no one remembers all of the ingredients that go into it."
