These are recipes for simple, easy, homemade dishes. I make no promises about portion size or fat content, etc., but they are dishes that I have prepared and liked. I don't post pictures because I don't have fabulous lighting, nor a great camera. I can promise that I haven't just made things up without trying the recipe and this is all stuff other people have tried and no one spit anything out in disgust. Not yet, anyway! I don't take cool supporting photos of the steps along the way (but wait, are you telling me you are going to cook those nuts in the microwave in that METAL bowl?) but these are real recipes that a regular cook/baker should be able to figure out. I love the work of Deb at Smitten Kitchen - she provides the whole package!!! Good food, witty comments and lovely photos. If you want to see a REAL food blog, check her out.

Potato Soup

This one calls for potato flakes - I have never bothered with them, mostly because I don't like my soup too thick, but it's also a nuisance for just 1 tablespoon.

2 potatoes, cubed
1/3 onion, roughly chopped
1-1/3 c milk
1/3 carrot, grated
1 t butter
1 T potato flakes
1 t parsley
S&P to taste
2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
grated cheddar cheese
sour cream

Boil potato and onion until tender.  Drain.  Add milk, carrot, butter and flakes.  Bring to a boil, then simmer 2-3 minutes.  Garnish with remaining ingredients.
