I love this recipe, I have made it a few times, its a keeper, thank you for sharing, Warmly Doreen


This soup looks like it is to die for. Making it tomorrow! thanks!


Just wanted to let you know that I made your soup recipe tonight and it was soo good! My kids do not like cooked vegetables but they both decided to try carrots and potatoes tonight and loved it! My husband thought it was the best and has made me promise to make it often.
Thank you for all your wonderful recipes,

I made the soup this morning before I went to the airport to pick up my husband. We had a great bowl of creamy potato soup for lunch. A nice treat because it's been a bit chilly for south Florida the last few days. Welcome home-Homemade soup and chocolate cake. YUM!
Cheers! Rita

p.s. now I'll have to make the chocolate chip cookies next


Tina, Thank you so much for this recipe! I made it Monday night and we had it again yesterday for leftovers! Yummy! My husband isn't a huge soup person - but he came in while I was looking at your blog and saw the pictures of your soup - he said "YUM!" Thank you for inspiring me to cook again. It gets discouraging trying to cook for picky eaters. Now about those sinful looking cookies . . . God bless! Beth

I love love love some potato soup! It is such a great comfort food! I love stopping by your blog and seeing what you have going on!


Sounds too yummy! I must give this one a whirl ... Thanks so much!


Thank you for the receipe... I am going to make it this week!


Hi Tina,
Your potato soup looks good. I tried a new recipe this fall that is really good also. It has potatoes, cream cheese, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup, graded carrots,and topped off with bacon bits and dried parsley. It is really good. If you want the recipe to try out sometime, let me know. I serve mine with garlic bread.
Your Hoosier Friend,


Sounds and looks sooo good...m..


This looks so good! Thanks for the recipe.


That looks wonderful. I can't wait to try it. Thanks for sharing.


Hi Tina,

GREAT BALLS OF FIRE...I have made potato soup all my adult life and never thought about sour creme...ummmm...don't you know I am going to make this very soup tonight or tomorrow night. Sounds so delicious...
thanks much for the recipe.


Hello Tina,
Your soup looks delicious. I got a new recipe for potato soup in November, it uses cream cheese and chicken broth, potatoes, carrots, onions topped off with bacon bits and parsley. It is really good! Let me know if you would like to try my recipe, I will email it to you if you would like to try it.

Your Hoosier Friend,


That is exactly what I did yesterday--make potato soup. Yours sounds yummy. I use instant potatoes and coffeemate as a thickener and top with shredded cheese. I will try your recipe the next time. It was cold here in Indy and that sounded so good! Have a great day!!!!!

Tina, I copied the potato soup recipe. But what I really wanted to say is, you just seem to be so in love with your husband, which touches my heart, but also you seem to just be in love with life itself. I actually think that is what draws all these wonderful women your blog. I know it's what draws me. Some of you are just amazing. You warm my heart. There are several of you that make me smile just seeing their names. You are one of those.


Oh Yum! I so want this soup right now!
Potato soup is one of my all time favorites and your recipe looks divine!

I could have really enjoyed a nice hot bowl of this potatoe soup today! Perfect for a cold winter day!


This is my husbands favorite soup on a cold day. He also begs for it when he is the slightest bit under the weather.

Yours looks wonderful :)


This looks wonderful Tina! I can't wait to try this recipe - thanks for sharing!


Yum,yum and yum again!!! Especially with the unusual cold weather here in North Texas. ~Cheryl


Boy, a bowl of this would hit the spot this cold Ohio evening!

Enjoying your blog!♥


I love potato soup, but could not handle the bacon drippings or bacon. LOL I think I got the cheesy potato soup recipe from you? With the velveeta? I don't measure though, I cook like my grandmother.

It is good soup weather!



This sounds so good! I have been looking for an easy potato soup recipe. Thanks


Wow...that looks amazing. That's one that is going to make it to my printer!
Thanks for the recipe!


Lordy, that looks better than the Southern Living recipe that I've been making for years. I'm going to try it!

Miss Jean

Wow! Looks great. I just sent a link to this post to my Mom, the ultimate potato soup freak. With any luck, I'll get some tonight!


Yummy Yummy!! I'm going to make it tomorrow.


Looks like a great recipe. Never heard of your method of thickening. I use sour cream in my potato soup but add it at the end. I just mash some of the potatoes to thicken things up. Next batch of potato soup I make will be with your recipe. Thanks.



Ah..the aroma of creamy potato soup and crusty french bread!!

Love those comfort foods, and I bet Milton does, too.


Hi Tina,
You amaze me. That looks so yummy and just screams "cozy home". Have a perfect weekend. Hugs, Rosemary~

Kim this looks so yummy...I am trying this this weekend.....


Thank you Thank you!!!!! I have a ton of fresh basil left that i have to make into a pesto today so it doesnt go bad..i figured id make a pesto on pizza dough or focaccia bread, but wanted a soup to go with it....now i found it THANKS!!! I just love your blog :-)


This looks good and I will try it the next time I make potato soup.
I have beef vegetable soup in the crockpot now. I can't wait till I start to smell it.


Tina, You come up with the BEST recipes!! Where do you get them all? I will try that one, it will be so wonderful on these -40 C days. Thanks for the recipe and your wonderful blog. Hugs ~cindy s~

It's cold here in Macclenny,Florida (30 miles weset of Jacksonville) this weekend. I'm in a soup mood so I think I'll try this recipe. I've never made potato soup with sour cream in it before.

Thanks for the recipe and the gorgeous pictures.

Thanks so much for the recipe.Will try this week.

This looks so good! I like the idea of the flour and sour cream mixture to thicken the soup. I will definitely be trying this recipe.



Elaine L.

I see so many wonderful recipes on the blogs, but I have to watch my cholesterol. Darn!



Mmm - I was just looking at another potato soup recipe you made over a year ago that had velveeta cheese in it.
We LOVE potato soup. I am going to make some soon.

I just started a sourdough starter today! I am excited to make some recipes with it when its ready. Want to make some and bake with me? :-)

Terri Steffes

This is the first potato soup I have ever been tempted to try besides my mom's soup. I think it will be on our plates next week!

Kim@ Forever Wherever
