Comforting Potato Soup and Homemade Crackers

I grew up on this potato soup recipe, my mama made it and now I make it. We love it, and it sure warms your heart and soul on a cold blistery winter day. I hope you will enoy it too. Paired with homemade whole wheat crackers I think it will surely be a hit at your home.

Potato Soup

6 cups water
1 stick butter
5 to 6 potatoes
2 carrots
1 onion
6 Tablespoons Knorr chicken bouillon ( I love the powdered)
1 can evaporated milk

In a stock pot add water, butter, chop up potatoes in bite size pieces and carrots, chop up onion.  Add bouillon and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or until potatoes and carrots are tender.  When done turn off heat and add evaporated milk. Serve and enjoy. :)

Whole Wheat Crackers

I love this basic and easy cracker recipe and I got it from my favorite blog...Aspiring Homemaker

You can find my adaption below:

1 cup flour
1/2 whole wheat flour
3/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 cup oil
1/2 cup water
1 to 2 tsp. Italian Seasoning (optional)

Riverwalk Jazz Cafe Ozark, MO

(My hubby's Dad and wife own a Jazz Cafe and she gave me her Italian seasoning mix she sells in the cafe and I added 2 tsps. of her special blend. It makes the crackers just wonderful. Visit their website here Riverwalk Jazz Cafe)

1 egg, 2 tsp. sugar, 1 tsp vinegar

Mix flours, salt, powder, oil, water, and seasonings. Roll out thin on a baking sheet. Mix together egg, sugar, and vinegar and brush on crackers. Use a pizza cutter to cut strips or squares. Bake @ 350 for 10~20 min or until golden brown.
