Here is a new variation of potato soup, made in broth rather than cream. Its light - yet hearty!
Melt butter in 10-inch skillet until sizzling; add potatoes, leeks, carrots and garlic. Cook over medium-high heat just 5-7 minutes or until leeks are tender.
Place vegetables and all remaining ingredients except parsley in slow cooker. Cook on low heat setting 4-6 hours or High heat setting 2-4 hours, or until potatoes are tender. Just before serving; stir in parsley.
*Substitute any type of potato.

Making this for tonights dinner and can not wait to see how it turns out :)
My husband made this, but omitted the thyme (we don't care for thyme), and it was very flavorful, but there was a lot of broth. We served it with rolls and a salad.
I just made this today but varied from the recipe a little to use what I had on hand. We had a left over ham bone from Christmas dinner so I used 3 cups of BEEF broth, 3 cups of water and put the bone and whatever was left on it in the crock pot. I also used a red onion instead of the leeks since that's what I had on hand. My house smells FABULOUS and we've already sampled a little and cannot wait for dinner. We'll be making this again! Thank you!
I made this exactly as written. I used a ham steak which you can get at any supermarket. No need to wait for leftovers from "big" ham. It had a great ham taste and it was very filling. I suppose you could use a regular onion for the leek if you wanted. A great alternative to chicken soup.

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new. Enter Cranberry Pavlova. This recipe is part of our 2014 Holiday Brochure, and I was in love at first bite.

ginger and sesame to a

Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
