Creamy Potato Leek Soup

In my previous blog, I raved about my wonderful immersion blender, and with the weather still chilly, making soup is a great way to get some additional use out of it.

Also mentioned in another story, I spoke of my creamy potato leek soup as being the only soup that my husband actually requests. Maybe you have a husband like mine, or loathe soup yourself. Or maybe, you love soup like I do. Regardless, I hope you’ll want seconds! Enjoy!
