Family, Friday Recipes

Potato Soup

This soup is quick, delicious and so EASY. Pair it with some quick biscuits and you have a wonderful home-cooked meal to warm your family’s bellies.

I apologize for not having lots of photos this time! Life has been a bit crazy the past few weeks, and I just didn’t schedule time to photograph my cooking.:)


6-10 potatoes(depending on size), cubed

2 large carrots, thinly sliced

1 celery stock, finely chopped

1 C zucchini, chopped

1/2 small onion, minced

4 C homemade chicken stock or chicken broth

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp parsley

3/4 C whipping cream

1 C crumbled bacon for topping

1 C cheddar cheese for topping


In a large pot, place potatoes, carrots, celery, zucchini, onion, broth, salt, pepper, and parsley. Bring pot to a boil. Turn down heat a little, so it’s not a rolling boil, but still boiling. Continue to cook for 15 or so minutes until the potatoes are tender.

Add cream and stir. And then it’s done!

Top with bacon and cheddar cheese.

So simple, so good.

While the veggies are cooking I usually throw together these biscuits that I shared in my turkey and vegetable soup recipe here.

Serve with a salad and some fresh fruit. I love to make this on a busy night. I could eat soup every single day. I just love warm soup. I already sense a chill in the air in the mornings and evenings, so my soup loving heart is already excited for “soup season”.

I hope that you have a wonderful weekend with your family! I have some changes coming in our family, so I am taking a month off to send my oldest to college, get the rest of my kids off to school happily, start a new job, and have a vacation.

I will still be on IG & Facebook for some of the time, but I am taking time off of media too. It’s been 17 years since I had a job. So I want to see what my new balance needs to be for blogging. Because my family is my most important thing. And as much as I love this blog, it is my hobby.:) So as I ponder over this next month, there will be a few changes, but I will still be sharing goodness and hope. I truly appreciate all your support of me in my journey to share goodness through my Wednesday Stories, my thoughts, and delicious food.

Life is Good. Share the Good.
