  1. I have an old Chambers stove and this will be perfect in the Thermowell! Love potato soup and really all soups and stews. The skinny pumpkin bars look delish as well. I need to revisit her site. as she seem to have a similar food aesthetic for home-style cooking. CTD

  2. Hm hmmmm Love the potato soup;… and I agree comes fall I come up with all kinds of soups…
    Just made lentil soup with onions, garlic, spinach, lentils and chicken fillets…. I could eat soup
    every day as well….
    Thanks for the recipe…
    Love Edith YourChicagoConnection

    1. Hi Julie… I’m sorry, I should have specified the package size on the bacon bits. I used the 3 ounce size which is just over a 1/3 a cup. You’ll love this soup! Enjoy.

  3. This looks great, I am going to try it this weekend. Do you know how much one serving is? One cup? 1/2 cup? I am doing weight watchers so I am trying to figure out how many points this would be. Thanks!

  4. Traci – My family LOVED this soup! Even my kids that “hate’ soup love it. My husband even requested it again today! thank you for this awesome recipe.
