Changing Seasons, Changing Recipes

Does anyone else out there live in Louisiana?? Well if you do then you know how crazy the weather has been. Thursday it was 100 degrees and Friday it was 80. So, due to this massive cold front I've had to put all of my coats and boots in the front of my closet and stoy away the bikinis til next summer.

One of my favorite things about Fall and Winter is that I will eat all the soup I can possibly get mouth near. I am a soup and BLT kinda girl! And I decided in honor of my first "official" blog post I would do something special and give y'all a two-for-one. Disney and a recipe..Are you ready for this? It's Disney's Loaded Bake Potato Soup! You will die and go to Heaven just like I did when you taste it.

It's the best thing I've eaten since I made it last winter. A little piece of potato Heaven I like to call it.

But, I feel like this picture just doesn't give it here's the recipe!

You will need:
  • 1lb bacon roughly chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion
  • 3/4 cup diced celery
  • 4 large russet potatoes & 4 medium red potatoes; peeled and diced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups heavy cream
How to make:

  • In a 6-8 Qt stock pot over medium heat, fry bacon until crisp
  • Remove bacon and drain on paper towel. In bacon fat, cook onions & celery until the onion is translucent. Add potatoes and cook for 4 mins. Stirring occasionally.
  • Sprinkle in flour and stir consistently over low heat for 5 minutes until the mixture has thickened slightly. Add stock and half of bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Over-medium high heat, bring soup to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes. stir occasionally. Mash some of the potatoes for a thicker and creamier texture.
  • Add cream and let simmer for another 5 minutes
  • Adjust thickness by adding water or more stock.
  • Garnish with bacon, cheese, and sour cream!
  • ENJOY!!!
And may I reccomend the best cook book ever?? Full of great recipies!

My next post is going to be the BEST butter cupcakes your taste buds have ever landed on! I made them for a friend's wedding shower and they were a great hit so I'll share those in a couple days. Maybe we'll get to healthy food one day...maybe.

Have a magical day!
