Baked Potato Soup: A Family Favorite!

Hello, my lovelies!

I’ve got a fabulously yummy recipe for you today but I want to share it with you with complete honesty.  I got this recipe from a blog I love and often visit, The Comfy Kitchen.  (The original recipe is linked.)

But, I took the recipe and made some tweaks to it.  Here’s my spin on it.
