I am copying and pasting this directly from her article.  Please check out her article, since it has lots of really good looking recipes in it!


Gerry Brandt of Laver Road in mansfield shared this recipe for a “delicious soup.”


2 tablespoons butter

1/3 cup chopped celery

1/3 cup chopped onion

4 cups peeled and diced potatoes

3 cups chicken broth

2 cups milk

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

dash of paprika

1/4 teaspoon pepper

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese

In a large sauce pan, heat the butter and sauté the celery and onion until tender. Add the potatoes and 2 3/4 cups of broth. Simmer until potatoes are tender.

Stir in milk and seasonings. Heat through.

Stir 1 tablespoon flour into remaining 1/4 cup broth. Add to soup to thicken slightly. Cook one minute.

Add cheese, stirring until melted.
